Bikini shopping doesn’t need to be a traumatic experience, particularly with so many mix and match pieces on the high street.

We’ve rounded-up a range of styles and shapes to suit all figures and budgets. From Zara’s simple-as-they-come white bikini to River Island’s blingy two-piece, we hope there’s something you’ll want to wear around the pool or on the beach.

For a bikini that will last you years and will stay put whether you’re swimming or playing a vigorous game of bat and ball, try Seafolly’s designs. If it’s value you want, Dorothy Perkins’ red floral number looks much more expensive than the price tag and the bold but pretty print will ensure you stand out on holiday.
