I don’t know about you, but when I find swimwear that suits me, I always go back to that same brand each and every year. When it comes to high street, this is always H&M and & Other Stories. If I’m wanting to splurge, I head to Solid & Striped and Alexandra Miro (who happens to be one of my new favourite swimwear designers I tried recently.) And in terms of fit, I often go for styles that won’t give me dodgy tan lines, enter: the bandeau bikini.
Another person who’s a big fan of this particular bikini is my friend and fellow stylist, Nana (below) who always inspires me to bag bright styles for upcoming holidays.
Like strapless tops and dresses this season, strapless bikinis are literally everywhere. And contrary to popular belief, they can work for all cup sizes. It’s all about finding the right style: if you have a smaller chest, you can go for un-wired styles but may want some padding, if you’ve got a larger cup, then there are underwired, unpadded styles that also come with straps so you can choose to have the extra support when you’re not on the beach.
To save you the search for the best ones, here are 18 bandeau bikinis I predict will sell out, fast.
