When shopping for bikinis I have to consider more than just the style, my selection is firstly based on the question “Will it support me?” I’m a 34DD, which means that it’s vital for me to pick my bikini top wisely.
I had a look on Hunkemoller and saw they had an exceptionally good variety of bikinis and swimsuits and immediately got excited. Admittedly all of Hunkemoller’s designs were so stylish and it was hard at first to pick my favourite, scrolling through all the designs, the Contemporary Stripe Cross Over Bikini top really caught my eye, because it looked supportive, with three fastenings and the cups looked as though they were designed for a fuller breasted woman.
Choosing the bikini bottoms was a breeze decision, instead of picking the matching pair on the model, I selected the Fold Over Stripe Bikini bottoms, which were advertised on the website ‘to complete the look’. These bottoms also looked comfy and had a slightly higher waistline, which is something that I consider when choosing bikinis.
My parcel arrived within 5 days, in a stylish cardboard box. As I opened the box I was immediately attracted to the pink and white design and motivational quote printed on the inside reading ‘Life is about moments. Enjoy this one.’ I thought this was a really lovely touch.
Unveiling my bikini my first thoughts were “amazing quality”. The material is thick and resistant – exactly what I need in a bikini.
Now for the try on… Usually, I get really disappointed when I order bikinis online, because they never live up to the photos, but I can honestly say that when I tried on the bikini top I let out a little smile because it actually fit me and gave me all the support that I needed. I really love the wrap over feature as it gives me a little more support but also hides part of my mid section. The three fastenings on this bikini is my absolute favourite part of its design, and the back fastening is a clip on rather than a tie up, which is a bonus.
I love the bikini bottoms, they add a minimalist look to the bikini, and I love that they are slightly high-rise so I can cover more of my stomach.
My overall experience with Honkemoller was fantastic, my bikini was packaged nicely and the quality and fit of the bikini was more than expected .
