A BIKINI A DAY X MISSGUIDED REVIEW

IMG_9345
Firstly, I am just so excited about this collaboration! The two mega babes behind popular blog A BIKINI A DAY Miss Natasha Oakley and Devin Brugman have been my absolute idols for the past few years. Aside from travelling the world and working with some of the most desirable and luxurious swimwear brands from all four corners of the globe they’re mantra has always been to inspire girls to feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin by promoting healthy and natural bodies, which is something I fully support.

Their blog covers fashion, beauty and lifestyle and the duo are constantly addressing serious issues and using their fame for good purposes; read their latest article about why you shouldn’t pay to ride elephants in Thailand here.

Now that you’ve got a good idea about the girls behind A BIKINI A DAY lets talk about their recent collection with my favourite on-line retailer Missguided!

The sexy collection launched earlier this month and features a variety of cuts, shapes and styles. Personally, I’m really glad the girls chose a wide range of bikinis to feature in this collection because every girl is different; there really is something for everyone. The colours used are perfect and bang on trend, they range from pastel nudes to bright reds so you can find the perfect bikini to flatter your skin tone.

BIKINI PERFECTION
.
When it comes to the A BIKINI A DAY X MISSGUIDED collection, the stand out selling point for me is that each bikini is designed to fit the female body perfectly; the bikini top from the ‘Mesh Mix Triangle Bikini Set Red‘ has over the shoulder style straps that hook into the back straps to spread the support evenly just like a bra & I have to say it’s the most comfortable bikini top I’ve ever worn! I’d highly recommend this swimwear collection to anyone with a bigger bust C-D/DD the cups are wider and slightly longer than most I’ve seen on the high street and support you perfectly so that you feel 100% confident.
If you’re more of a halter neck girl then have a look at the ‘Mesh Panel Tie Bikini Set Nude’ which features a gorgeous gold tasselled neck tie with matching tie side bottoms (perfect for curvier hips).

BRAZILIAN BOTTOMS

Since following Natasha and Devin on Instagram I’ve become much more aware of what cuts suit which body shape. Before following them I would always wear full coverage bikini bottoms (to be honest I didn’t even know what ‘Brazilian cut’ meant!) In my mind I’ve always found full coverage bottoms quite annoying, they can easily become saggy or uncomfortable, which is definitely not what you want at the beach! I bought my first ever Brazilian cut bikini actually by accident, I ordered a bikini on-line without inspecting it and when it arrived I really wasn’t sure whether or not I’d get on with it. Luckily, I was pleasantly  surprised and haven’t looked back since. I find the Brazilian fit very flattering and comfortable so now my bikini collection at home now has a good mix of full, medium and small coverage bottoms to match my mood.
The ‘Mesh Panel Tie Bikini Set Nude’ is a great introduction to Brazilian Bikinis so if you’re a bit apprehensive like I was at the beginning, I’d say this set is for you! The colour is just to die for and the adjustable ties mean you will get just the right amount of support.
Still unsure? Read up about why you switch to Brazilian bottoms on the A BIKINI A DAY blog here.

LUXURY FOR LESS
.
One other reason to treat yourself to a couple of pieces from the collection is the price vs quality. The fabrics used are super soft and supportive, they’re not scratchy or clingy at all and in fact are very similar to the fabric used in Natasha and Devin’s luxury swimwear brand Monday Swimwear which I bought and reviewed earlier this year, you can catch up here. Monday swimwear is roughly triple the price of the Missguided collaboration and when I’m comparing the two, there’s little/no difference! The same high quality design and fabric of the luxury brand is used in the Missguided collection meaning you get a beautiful, perfect fitting bikini without the hefty price tag!

This is the reason I’m so glad that Natasha & Devin decided to work with Missguided as opposed to the other on-line retailers. I will always head straight to Missguided for on trend fashion for less and this collection is no different, ranging from £20-£35 you really can’t go wrong.
Here are a couple of my favourites from the collection, click to shop.
