The Problems With Bikini Shopping

We all know shopping for a new bikini or swimsuit can be a difficult task at times, but your swimwear prayers have been answered! Here are a few of the common swimwear shopping issues and how we can solve them for you...



Problem: You pop out to the shops but it rains the whole time. Not exactly getting us in the mood for Summer sun now is it?



Solution - At Simply Beach you can shop online from the comfort of your own home, rain or shine! All you need to do is grab yourself a cocktail and you'll be in the holiday mood in no time. It's 5 o'clock somewhere right?  




Problem: Your skin hasn't seen daylight for many winter months and you can't really imagine what the swimwear is going to look like once you've got that golden girl holiday glow.



Solution - If you prefer to embrace your natural skintone then rock it girl! But if you want to get your body summer-prepped, pop on a bit of gradual tanner before those bikinis arrive to help yourself see what the swimwear will look like once you're hitting that beach on holiday. If you're after a few tanning tips check out our blog post here.  




Problem: So many bikinis are in matching sets and if the bottom fits perfectly, the top is most definitely not going to. Why cruel world, why!



Solution - At Simply Beach we stock a huge range of bikinis in separates so that you can mix and match the sizes to find your perfect fit! No longer will you miss out on that beautiful bikini bottom because it only comes in a matching sized set!  




Problem: Strutting around in the changing room showing everyone what you look like is not your idea of a good time. But also being hemmed in that little square cubicle doesn't give you much chance to test out what the swimsuit feels like if you move around much or wear it for longer periods of time.



Solution - You can try on everything you order in the comfort of your own home when you buy at, and you have 28 days to return anything that isn't perfect for you. That means you even have time to accessorise it up and see how everything would work with other pieces in your wardrobe. Bonus!  




Problem: It's August (aka British Summertime still) but there are basically no matching bikinis or nice swimsuits left as everything has gone into sale and you're surrounded by scarves and Autumn boots. Searching through those empty rails like...



Solution - Luckily we re-stock throughout the year and constantly have gorgeous new collections arriving from all the best brands including Seafolly, Melissa Odabash, Lepel and more. We've got you covered 365 days of the year.  




Problem: You want a swimsuit but the only styles in the shops are the 'on-trend' cut outs options, and crazy tan lines are definitely not for you.



Solution - We have a great selection of swimsuits whether you're after a high-neck, a high-leg, a scoop-neck or a V-neck we're sure to have something to suit your style. (And if you are all about those cut out tan lines, we've got something for you too!)  




Problem: You look in the changing room mirror and think 'God I look awful today' 'Is it just me or is it this lighting?' Changing rooms are notoriously bad for hideous lighting, which doesn't make you feel your best when you're trying on something that many of us feel self conscious in as it is.



Solution - Ordering online with us means you can try everything on at home, in your own lighting, where you can feel like the confident beautiful woman you are. Buh-bye bad changing room lighting shadows and uber bright bulbs.  




Problem: The high street really doesn't cater well if you have a bigger bust or you're looking for larger sizes in flattering styles. You've searched everywhere and still nothing gives you the support or coverage you're after.



Solution - We stock a wide range of swimwear for DD+ cup sizes and plus sizes in flattering on-trend styles. So whatever your size, we're sure to have something to make you feel confident and comfortable at the beach.
