Tropical Paradise Tankini Top Tropical Paradise Tankini Top

Swimwear is probably the most important purchase before any holiday as it’s something that you wear all day long, so you need to be comfortable, supported and still look stylish. All the selected styles have a gorgeous British vintage vibe that conjure up images of the British seaside in days gone by…think brightly coloured beach huts, grand architecture, donkey rides and Punch & Judy. However you don’t have to be holidaying in dear old Blighty to fit in with our vintage theme, our Bravissimo swimwear will look stunning on any beach where the sun is shining, from the Isle of Wight to Ibiza.

The Tropical Paradise Bikini Top by Bravissimo (new from Bravissimo) is a gorgeous floral bikini and very similar to a bikini that Brigitte Bardot wore on the beach in Cannes in 1953. This bikini is an underwired halterneck, it’s very flattering for bigger boobs and gets top marks for its shape, support and uplift. It is available in tropical floral, which will look good on any skin tone. It is available to buy with matching swim tie side or swim briefs and if you require more coverage than the bikini top will provide, there is a Tropical Paradise Tankini Top by Bravissimo too.

The Antigua Bikini Top by Pour Moi in aqua dot is also new, and proving very popular already. It’s another super flattering halterneck which has lightly padded cups. It ties at the neck and the cups are edged with a cute frill. It also features a gorgeous central bow, so along with the polka dots it adds to the vintage look. This bikini top will create great curves while offering good support. It comes with matching swim shorts or swim tie side.

The Beach Belle Tankini by Faubourg has a pretty seaside vintage feel. Available in floral/stripe, this tankini combines fabulous, retro style florals with candy stripes. It is an underwired tankini top, with a concealed bra back fastening. It is available with matching swim briefs or swim shorts. One reviewer comments, “I love it, the design is stunning and the material is very good quality. Can’t wait to go on holiday…”

So the hotel has been booked, the suntan lotion, factor 50, factor 30 and factor 15 has been bought, (better to cover every base), the holiday reading has been chosen. You are nearly there, and you can almost taste that first cocktail. But one thing that you may have overlooked when you started your packing, is your swimwear. You may suddenly realise that those bikinis that you bought a few years back, are just not flattering anymore. Many of us ladies are continuously fighting those extra few pounds that creep up on us. If a perfectly flat, toned and honed tummy is not achievable before you go away, then don’t worry the tankini is the answer.

Tankinis are more versatile than a swimsuit as you can mix and match, they are also great for tall ladies, where swimsuits can often be too short in the body.

Bravissimo have the Azure Tankini Top by Pour Moi with matching fold briefs or tie briefs, this tankini is in stunning ocean blue, and is a really flattering two piece. It’s a halterneck top, and the cups are lightly padded, it gives fabulous shape, support and comfort.

The Bright Ideas Tankini Top by Faubourg with matching bikini briefs is a gorgeous tankini, it is an underwired halterneck and the monochrome hibiscus print. Is very on trend and follows the surfer girl trend that is so popular this summer. The Bright Ideas Tankini is exclusive to Bravissimo.

Another tankini exclusive to Bravissimo is the Sunkissed Tankini Top by Bravissimo with a choice of fold brief or bikini shorts. It is in fabulous zesty bright coral and is a balconette top, which lifts and supports the boobs, creating a great cleavage and enviable shape. This tankini has sold out in a few sizes, so don’t miss out.

Take Bo-ho glamour to another level with the fabulous, figure enhancing Kashmir swimsuit by Faubourg. The exotic print with contrasting blues and pinks sure make this swimsuit extra special and that doesn’t get you noticed the boob boosting properties of the halterneck tie and underwire cups most definitely will! Unleash your wild side with the Salvador snake skin bikini by Pureda. The hints of lime and turquoise give this bikini a fun twist whilst the clever fabric adjusters allow you to alter the fullness of the cups. If you prefer to cover up on the beach or at the pool, then we’d recommend trying a tankini. Tankinis combine a longer top and either brief or short bottoms, they are an ideal solution for those who are body conscious and like to keep their tummy covered. The Sun Seeker bikini and tankini allows you to mix and match between a bikini or tankini top and shorts or briefs bottoms so that you can get a set that you feel most comfortable in. The Acapulco swimsuit by Ballet hits the 50s vibe with its gorgeous jade green polka dot print and waist detail shape. This swimsuit also has built in secret support to shape the tummy, bum and bust. With adjustable straps and ties to alter the leg length we think this might just be the most versatile swimsuit we’ve ever had! Wear pool side or on the beach with big sunglasses and an even bigger hat to work the 50s glamour puss look to the max.

Cyprus Bikini

Whether you’re planning a holiday, thinking about taking up swimming or just fancy a new bikini, we have an amazing range of swim wear for all of these needs. For ultimate pool side confidence, try a Bravissimo bikini or swim suit. They come in sizes 30-38 D-H and some styles in a 28 back and up to a K cup size. The other great thing about buying a Bravissimo bikini, apart from great fit and support, is that you can order separate sizes for bottoms and tops. So no more having to buy two different sized bikinis to get the right fit! Hurray!

The Cyprus bikini comes in gorgeous fresh spring colours and for those of you that might feel a little conscious in a bikini, the skirted bottoms of this set provide that little extra coverage to make you feel more comfortable on the beach or at the pool. The halter neck style also gives a flattering shape whilst retaining upmost support for your boobs.

We’re also bringing you our first bikini in a 28 back! The Mystic bikini is a beautiful chocolate brown and pink print with tie side briefs. You could however, go tribal with the Africa bikini. This animal print bikini is chic, sexy and glamorous with its sequin detail and halter neck shape; it will make the most of your assets and keep them fully supported too! For something a little different, we have the Pebbles swim suit. It offers the best of both worlds as the style can be worn without the halterneck strap to avoid tan lines but keeps your tummy covered. Hey presto, the perfect answer to avoiding tan lines whilst keeping covered up!

If you prefer something more classic however, try the Geneva bikini in black or coral pink. Its simple shape, choice of swim suit, tankini or bikini might just solve all of your swimwear needs at once! You can also mix and match the bikini or tankini top with shorts or brief bottoms, giving you more choice than ever!
