Summer may have been cancelled for must us but that should not stop you from planning a beach holiday. What is a beach holiday without your favourite bikini set anyway? We all have a love-hate relationship with bikinis. Society may restrict you to a certain bikini body type but if you were to ask us, we'd tell you to wear a bikini regardless of what your body type is; 'have a body, will wear bikini' is the attitude to have. We will object if your bikini is not stylish enough, though. Bikinis are meant to be flattering no matter what your body type and thankfully there is a bikini for every kind of body. That being said, don't restrict yourself to a bikini style just because it is meant for let's say a bustier woman or a pear shaped body - there are no rules here. We're fortunate to be living in a time when bikinis have become super inclusive and stylish that anyone and everyone can wear it. Stylish bikinis are what you should aim at and nothing less. Who wants boring holiday pictures on the 'gram, anyway?

Never miss another beach holiday by saying you didn't have the right kind of bikini to flaunt.

Fasnoya Cut Out Bikini Swimwear
A monokini as the name suggests is a one piece bikini where you have the elements of a bikini set rolled into one with cut outs to resemble it. If you have always felt like you aren't sure how to pull off a bikini then a monokini is a great place to start.
A monokini is one piece swimsuit with cutout sides which can be treated like a bodysuit as well. Pair this monokini with a pair of trousers for your next beach holiday that switches from lounging on the sand to party ready.
Monokinis are generally halter neck styles so if you're not looking for one then this monokini too won't make the cut.
4. Bandeau Bikini
Callm Women Polka Dot Bikini
Bandeau bikinis have been a favourite since time immemorial and not just in 2020. The bandeau bikini is tube top that can be styled with a regular tie-up bikini bottom or a high-waisted one. Some bandeau bikinis can be smocked while some like this one have a tie up on the front.
Who can possibly go wrong with a polka dot bikini? Style it however you like it whether with shorts or a skirts. On a regular basis you can also wear it under a shirt as well for a casual look.
Some larger busted women prefer not wearing bandeau tops as they may feel uncomfortable.
5. Padded Cups
Boldgal Women's Bathing Swimwear Tie Dye Bikini
Ladies, the only bikini set that will remain evergreen in your closet while being stylish as well is a padded one. Padded bikinis don't have to be boring. Experiment with colourful patterns and styles like this one which will support you (better than your snake-like friends) and still make you look like a fashionable Goddess.
The padded bikini top usually comes with adjustable straps that can be hooked and removed too. So feel free to convert these into a bandeau bikini as well. Just because they're padded bikinis don't mean that women with smaller busts can't wear it. Padded comfort is for all!
If you don't find padded and underwired bikinis comfortable then this one is not for you.
6. Animal Print
Callm Women Two-Piece Animal Print Bikini Set
Animal prints have made a huge entry in the fashion arena and the bikini space is no different either. Animal printed bikinis are a statement making swimwear style and needs no effort or mention as to why adding one to your closet is the need of the hour.
This particular style of swimwear is fabulous to be worn as part of your party wardrobe too because the top alone can double as a gorgeous crop top thanks to the plunging v-shaped neckline.
If you're looking for a full coverage on the chest, then this v-shaped bikini may not work.
7. White Bikini
FINE STITCHING Women's Halter Neck Bikini Set
You may see a white bikini as ordinary but this very same bikini has in fact had celebrities gushing for more. White bikinis are all the rage for how versatile they are and is clearly one of the most popular and stylish bikinis out there.
There are unimaginable ways of styling a white bikini and not once will you ever find one which is not good enough.
The only reason you'd not buy a white bikini is if you're looking for another specific colour.

Who has ever said no to a floral bikini? We have never and neither should you. Floral bikinis can be worn all throughout the year and there is no reason why you shouldn't opt for one.
This bikini top can easily be paired with a pair of high-waisted linen trousers for a night out at the beach.
If you're not looking for a different kind of print, then floral one like this may not make the cut.

Cloe Valentine Women's Multicolor Tribal Print
Aztec prints keep hopping in and out of style. But the reason it makes its way back in fashion is because of the colourful prints and eye-catching detail which makes for a chic inclusion to your closet.
A tribal print usually speaks for it so accessorising is key and so let the swimsuit do all the talking.

10. Hardware Bikinis

We have seen many brands incorporate belts, shells and metallic hoops to the bikinis in this season to make them look extra jazzy. These have become very popular with celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid and we're not surprised why.
The top and bottom individually look just as stylish as well. The top alone can be worn as a crop top for a night out as well.
The shiny material and buckles are accessories in itself and delicate to no jewellery is recommended when pairing this bikini set.
