Ask Estelle // Emma’s Dilemma

Emma’s question:

“Practical but flattering swimwear?…. I have recently booked a surfing holiday (having never been before!) with my boyfriend and a group of friends. I want to pull off the beach-babe/ surfer-chic look however l am also slightly concerned an unexpected wave might wash my bikini right off and I will end up looking more like a beached whale… So, any ideas of something that will stay on but not make me look like a granny at the seaside? High waisted swimming bottoms are a no no… just too trendy!”

Every girl loves a holiday but most hate the dreaded bikini shopping which comes with it. Emma you’re not alone swimwear is a daunting subject at the best of times, for most people it’s simply about finding a bikini that looks good, no easy task. However Emma not only has to do this but find one which is as practical as it is flattering. Adhering to the ‘surfer-chic’ style brief as requested here is what I’ve found…

I think one pieces are probably your best bet for keeping your dignity whilst riding those *does best surfer impression* ‘totally rad’ waves…
