Last week I did some bikini shopping for my upcoming holiday to beautiful Cape Town! I’m notoriously bad at bikini shopping – possibly even worse than shopping for jeans, it just seems my body is some weird shape for which bikinis are just simply not created at all?
Bandeau bikini tops make me look like a squidgy sausage and tres boobless no matter how many different ones I try.
Underwired bikini tops make me look totally boobless and I find them a bit too underwear-y looking?
I hate frilly bikinis with a capital H. WHO in the entire wide world does EVER look good in these?? And that is totally separate from the fact that an adult woman in a frilly bikini simply screams I-have-some-SERIOUS-Daddy-issues?
I tan so quickly that the cage bikini tops are not a good option unless I want to spend the rest of the year with weird stripe tanlines.
I can’t really handle any of those retro 50’s bikinis either. I do however absolutely LOVE We Are Handsome – I have a gorgeous non-50’s bikini from them that I love!
Soooo, that doesn’t leave me with much choice apart from the classic trusted and much loved triangle bikini…so I got myself 2 of those – in very different styles as you can see below :) expect these two to be rocked in SA:
