Since I spoiled you with an early lingerie post on Wednesday, Blog Reader, this week’s lustworthy feature turns its eye to the world of swimwear and the fabulous Bikini Fling.
Founder Alexia had a global upbringing, spending time in Brazil, Australia, Dubai and Ecuador. It seemed inevitable therefore that Alexia had her heart set on another journey – this time a journey to create the perfect bikini. On holiday in Sardinia a friend suggested the name ‘bikini fling’ to capture that frisson of excitement you get before doing something a little bit cheeky, flirtatious or outrageous. I hear there may have been skinny dipping involved. Either way, bikini fling was born:
“Bikini Fling is all about bold acts of confidence and ensuring that girls feel as comfortable in their bikini as they do in their own skin. Whether they are floating in the Sardinian seas, making waves on the beaches of Brazil or simply paddling in Padstow – they will feel their absolute confident best. A fantastic cut, really lovely soft, strong fabric, and the ability to mix and match styles, sizes and colours to create your perfect bespoke bikini, no matter what your shape.”
I had my bikini fling moment at Palmetto Bluff resort last month. A beautiful place to spend a few days, the resort, in South Carolina, US hosts some marvelous activities such as swimming, yoga and pilates, boating and even shrimping (more to come on this in a later feature!)
I wore the Annabella top and Lucie Lou briefs for my time in the sun on holiday. The nice thing about Bikini Fling is the choice of style and size within a limited ‘capsule’ collection and I liked the fit of my choices which were true to size. With Spring Summer 14 out soon, it might be time to start seeking some winter sun too…!
