This year I decided to update my bikini collection. I wasn’t looking for expensive bikinis like Triangl (which are incredible, however I was able to buy 5 for a similar price for one) I instantly thought to check out Missguided. The prices of their swimwear range from £30 and under, the average being £22. I found 5 different pieces of swimwear in different styles
The best thing about a white bikini is it will definitely enhance your tan. This bikini is super comfortable and its adjusting straps which are also removable will help to stop awkward tan lines, it can transform into a bandeau. With there being a mixture of black in the bikini, the bottoms can easily be swapped for a plain black pair which are not high waisted if you want something different, as a downside to high waisted is a large portion of your stomach is hidden from the sun resulting into a very awkward tan line. This set also comes in the colour purple.
MIX & MATCH; HIGH WAISTED
A massive bonus with Misguided swimwear is the ability to be able to order a bikini top and brief separately. This gives their customers more freedom to almost customise their own bikini. Their high waisted briefs are very flattering and comfy, the bikini top, is very similar to a bra so will hold you in very well, reducing the risk of you falling out if you purchase the right size. This particular set come in colours such as; black, white, mint green, blue & floral.
This red all in one is very similar to 90s Baywatch swimwear. I find these types of swimsuits very flattering and easy to wear. If you’re having a day where you’re not particularly feeling your body, this helps to hide those flaws and make its easier for you to relax and not stress over what you look like, however there is a risk of awkward tanlines.
CUT OUT SWIMSUIT
This by far is one of my favourites. Unfortunately I purchased this last year, it’s still available on the US Missguided and is in the sale which is a bonus, and i’ve seen it on asos. Anyway, there are many dupes and similar styles, but these are undoubtably the most practical and comfortable types of swimsuit, ignoring the very very awkward tan lines, (I know I mention them a lot, but it is very helpful to know) they’re just overall so cute and flattering. Missguided have a whole rang of different styles, and the best advice is to wear them if you’re not in the sun for long, or possibly on your last days of holiday.
This material is meant to be the major key of the season. When i purchased this, everyone was quick to say, is that even practical? The bikini top has been seen as a normal bralet / lingerie top, which would be very unusual to be seen as as bikini top given the material, However it has been created in a way, that the inside is swimwear material and the outside is crochet, it is very practical, the only thing that is slightly different, is it drys slower, but things could be worse. Missguided have this bikini in other colours such as; white, green & black.
This bikini was totally out of my comfort zone, I have never worn something with such bright colours, i put it on and I instantly fell in love. This rasta style bikini definitely made me feel tropical. The bright colours are less boring and almost boosted my confidence, all the reactions were that the bikini was AMAZING. They also have it in the colours black and white. Try and reduce wearing black and white swimwear, you’ll find that bright colours are a lot more fun.
Overall my experience with Missguided swimwear has been incredible, I was happy with every single piece I received and I definitely will widen my collection with more pieces from their swimwear.
