Flattering Bikini Posing Tips

We all want to look great in our swimwear on holiday, and taking a few snaps in our bikinis is now common place (because come on, who doesn't love a bit of Instagram and Snapchat?!).


But the thought of swimwear photos can be a bit nerve-wracking for some. To help you feel super confident in your bikinis and swimsuits this season, here are a few of our favourite poses guaranteed to make you look great in every snap...




Hands On Hips

Putting your hands on your hips accentuates your waist and gives you a gorgeous silhouette.




One Leg Popped

Popping out one leg elongates your legs and helps give that booty a little push outwards.




One Leg In Front Of The Other

If you want to elongate your legs and flatter those hips, putting one leg in front of the other is the perfect pose for you.




From Above

Photos in general are more flattering from above, and it's the ideal angle to show off your whole look.




With A Prop

Switch your cuppa for a coconut and pop over to www.thelondoner.me for a very mellow (& yellow) blog post! ⚓️

Want that 'hey, look at me being all cute and beachy with my coconut/float/book/cocktail' (delete as appropriate) look? Grab a prop and pose it up!




On A Float

A new video with all my favourite summer pieces went up on my channel yesterday! Link is in my bio! #cestjetset #crete #hellooctobertravels A photo posted by Susannah Bonaldi (@hellooctoberxo) on


Floats are the hot Summer accessory right now and they are the perfect place to get your pose on.





Leaning Against A Wall or Tree

Leaning against something is ideal to give off that nonchalant cool beach vibe, whilst also allowing you to pop that leg or booty for elongation and accentuation.





Hands In The Air Like You Just Don't Care

Missing this Island Paradise!! New photos and blogs from my Maldives trip are now up on my website! www.sjana.com.au (link in my bio!) @amillafushi ALSO you can head over to the @theasia.collective blog to have a read of a little something something I wrote for them too! woohoo!

And finally, why not just wave your hands in the air, splash through the sea, and generally act like you're having the best time of your life. Because odds on, you probably are whilst on holiday, and happiness is the most flattering pose and vibe you can possibly give off.  




What's your best advice to feel body confident in your beach snaps?
