Looking to prolong that bridal feeling for as long as possible?! Time to purchase some sexy summer whites for the honeymoon then! There are still plenty of gorgeous swimsuits, bikinis and beautiful beach cover ups on the market at the moment – and what’s totally awesome is that you could get your hands on some at knock down prices in the sales! Sure if that’s not an excuse to extend the wedding budget just a little more, we don’t know what is!
Beautiful Bridal Swimsuit
White swimsuit?! Stay with us… While the thought can be terrifying, white togs are surprisingly easy to pull off and work for pretty much every skin tone. The trick of course is getting one that suits your shape, but once you’ve sorted that you’re laughing. But aren’t they see-through?! We hear you and the short answer is a drawn out maaaaaybe. Double layers are always a good idea, so have a check for that before you buy, if you’re diving in online stretch out the fabric when it arrives and if you can see your fingers through it you’re playing with fire, pop it back in the post and think no more of it.

If you’re feeling particularly confident on your ‘moon a glorious white bikini might just be the way to go. We’re loving some of the crochet detail bikinis that are trending at the moment – there’s something so carefree and 70s about them, right?! Same rules go for these as for the cozzies; check them out for sheerability before jumping in at the deep end!
