SUN, sea, sand and sweat – there is a lot going on when you’re on holiday so the last thing you want to be worrying about is your bikini.

You want to feel comfortable and confident in swimmers that make you feel that way – not like everyone is ogling your fashion fail. 

When shopping for your two-piece this holiday season there are five mistakes you should avoid.

Here, fashion editor Clemmie Fieldsend says what you should never buy to make a splash this summer. 


While it was all the rage on last year's Love Island, fashion experts scoffed at the show's contestants with their boobs hanging out. 

The look may be okay for twenty-something ladies with pert busts, but anyone else may be left with what looks like saggy skin hanging out from under your costume.

It looks like you couldn’t splash out on a new bikini and the one you have doesn’t fit. 

This trend should stay firmly in the past. 


Whether it's small stones or big plastic rocks stuck onto your bikini, they are a huge no.

They look very, very dated and are only worn by Z-listers.

If you’re not a strong swimmer then an overly padded bikini top might be useful at the pool, but other than that they’re good for nothing. 

Seeing someone's cleavage pushed up to their jawline as they totter around the resort makes them the laughing stock of the holiday and it just looks like you’re trying too hard.

Plus, when you’re hot and trying to relax the last thing you want is a thick, heavy pads strapped to you that will make you over heat. 


Frilly flowers on bikinis only resemble old-fashioned swimming caps and are unflattering.

They’re stand-out size and shape only draw attention to themselves and they add volume – aka they add volume to your figure

Plus looking like you’ve borrowed your nan's 1950s swimming cap and fashioned it into a bikini is dated and unstylish.

Avoid at all costs.
