With the smell of Spring in the air and my beach holiday fast approaching, this only means one thing – Bikini season is once again here. The thought of beaches, BBQ’s, sunshine and vinos gets me excited, except I have that dreaded mission ahead of finding that perfect bikini. And I know I’m not alone here.

Born out of this exact frustration, best friends Em and Elle teamed up in 2010 to launch Kini Swimwear, every woman’s best friend this season. Kini set out to create beautiful bespoke swimwear that caters for all shapes and sizes and lets you be the designer. After all, we are all unique and deserve to have a bikini that fits right and makes us feel good on the beach.

So I sat down 2 weeks ago and ordered my first pair of Kini Swimwear. I was blown away by the amount of choice, not only styles and prints but all the finer details you wouldn’t normally think about such as clasps, frills and types of ties.  It was seriously a one stop shop.

I chose the underwire top and the skinny bottom in animal print and black blocking. I have been on the search for the ultimate animal print bikini for a very long time so as soon as I saw that print, I knew I had hit the jackpot.

My order arrived just 10 days later, in a cute black and white stripe pouch and was blown away with the amazing quality and fit of the bikini. It was spot on!

Here are my 3 reason why you need to get yourself Kini Swimwear.

1. Quality – This is a bikini that will last you years, survive the chlorine and still fit like a glove.

2. Different sized separates – I have always struggled to find the right pair of bikinis as I have a very small bust, curvy hips and they are often different sizes. With most companies selling just a matching size, it became quite difficult to find the perfect fit. It was always the option of having a top falling down or 4 butts! Now I can have a top that fits perfectly and a bottom that is flattering thanks to Kini.

3. Be your own designer – I have always liked owning items a little more unique and hate laying next to someone on the beach wearing the exact same bikini. Now I never have that worry and it’s really cool to tell people I designed this!
