I Think I've Just Found 21 of the Best Bikinis in the World

So you’ve booked the holiday, scoured the internet for restaurant recommendations and now it’s time to curate your vacation wardrobe—beginning with what’s needed for the beach. If there’s one perennial holiday purchase we can’t resist splurging on, it’s a special bikini. Small but mighty in their effect on your holiday packing, it is important to feel fantastic in whatever your choice may be. Whether that’s a colour or print that lifts your spirits or a detail that highlights the favourite parts of your body, there are better options than ever out there for two pieces.

British brand Hunza G has already been nominated as the swimwear label of the season (by us, of course), and there are some key developments from longtime beloved beachwear brands Mara Hoffman and Lisa Marie Fernandez. The high street also has an array of trend-ticking iterations, from polka dots to posey prints in every cut from high-waisted to itsy-bitsy string styles. We’ve rounded up the best bikinis available to shop right now; sorry in advance if you end up wanting all 21…

Hope you’ve got a big suitcase.
