The essential bikini
If there’s only one bikini to buy this season, it’s the one you’ll also be wearing next year.
That seems obvious, yes, but let’s call it what it is: it’s hard enough to find swimwear that fits, let alone something that we like and will look timeless. Not to mention that the very idea of wearing a bikini is not every gal’s idea of a good time. But it is ours, and our boyfriends’, too.
Victoria’s Secret‘s entry into Canada this year means that we’ve gained more than a few options for boudoir and bathing wear and the Bombshell Summer Collection is hot. But of course it is- it’s from VS.
We love the Maya bandeau top- it’s well-priced for what it is and should be: an easy throw-on piece that looks great any time, any beach. The Maya’s removable halter straps are great for lying back on the deck chair and avoiding burning on some pesky tan lines.
As with most of the Victoria’s Secret take on two-piece anythings, you can mix and match tops and bottoms. We recommend getting your staple bikini in a solid colour like today’s rich coral (pictured at top) but if you want to have a little fun go for a cute tie-dye print and pair it with string bottoms:
