SHOP: The best bikinis to shop for the summer holidays 2022
Best bikinis to suit every budget and body this year
ASOS is the PLUG for mix-n-match bikinis, and this year they're even doing two-packs so you can get two summer bikinis in one go.
Neon colours and ribbed material are so in this summer. This set from Accessorize is total summer vibes and you can get the matching bottoms (£15) too.
Bikinis can be expensive and H&M are totally affordable with cute options. We love this marble bandeau bikini with Blue Marble Bikini Bottoms (£9.99) and they come in loads of colours to choose from.
& Other Stories are giving us pretty and chic with this floral pink bikini option. Match with the Floral Jacquard Bikini Briefs (£17) for the full set.
New Look are bringing the Y2K vibes with this green checkerboard option. Super affordable and the Bikini Briefs (£9.99) are stunning too.
You can't go wrong with a triangle bikini top and high-leg bikini bottoms. Luckily, PrettyLittleThing are experts at that. The Bright Green High Leg String Side Bikini Bottoms (£10) are only a tenner so they're a steal.
Frill bikinis are an easy way to look super sweet whilst sunbathing or jumping into a pool. The Brown Stripe Tie Side Bikini Bottoms (£10) have ties at the size so that it can fit perfectly too.
Erm, did you know you can get bikinis from Amazon now too? Yep, and they're totally chic. Next day delivery, yes pls.
Missy Empire have this set with a cowl-neck bikini that is super unique and will make you stand out on any beach. The June Pink Bikini Bottoms (£14) are super sweet too.
Now! More news!
What are the different bikini shapes?
Bandeau style bikini tops: they're basically a boob tube - strapless which means you won't have any weird tan lines.
Halter bikini tops: the standard type of bikini top because the ties go around your neck rather than towards your back (similar to a bra).
Plunge bikini tops: much like a bra, they're able to wear low-cut tops and cover-ups without your bikini being on show.
High-waisted bikini bottoms: if you're a fan of high-waisted bottoms then you'll probably love these. Although they can leave you with a weird tan lone.
Thong bikini bottoms: they're usually seen on reality stars and influencers on Instagram. If you want your bum to also get a tan then these are a must.
