Boutique Bikinis

Five Of The Best Places To Buy A New Bikini This Summer

Boutique Bikinis

There's no denying it - Bikini season is finally here. The weather is warming up, the days are getting longer and dreams of weekends by the beach are finally looking like a reality once again. Apart from spending the day soaking up the rays with friends, bikini shopping is one of our favourite parts of Summer, and with so many brands, styles, colours and cuts available, picking the perfect bikini is a serious art. City Beach and Kmart are great and all, but unless you want to show up to the next beach day wearing the same bikini as your friend (#awkward!), it's time to shop around a little - And we've got just the places for you!
