For longer legs
The trick when your hips are a little wide? Make legs look much longer with an indented bathing suit that goes way up, in order to create an optical effect. This model by the label Seafolly, coming straight from Australia and offered by Ôdabaïa, is the perfect example for those who want a silhouette worthy of Baywatch. Furthermore, its retro cut and its stripes are right up there in this Summer’s trend.

Play at being a mermaid
Here is the ideal bikini for those who hate bathing suit marks. A high triangle tied in the back of the neck, an adjustable pair of panties, an aquarelle motif with flattering colours, this small nugget is signed Pain de Sucre and is available on Ôdabaïa.

Bikini Bottom with adjustable bows, Aquarella - Diva, Pain de Sucre, €70.
Divert the attention
For those who have a little tummy, here is the solution of those who know what to do: divert the attention thanks to a one-piece bathing suit that smoothes the tummy and attracts the gaze on a maxi cleavage (thus on an asset). This model by Tori Praver, available on Ôdabaïa, definitely does the job, with pretty embroideries to boot. Thanks to its adjustable straps, you can regulate the cleavage effect in keeping with your morphology. A must.

Treat yourself to a dream tan
This Summer’s colour will be, note it once and for all, terracotta. Particularly great for a bathing suit, it has the advantage of enhancing very white skins as well as matt ones. The already cult one-piece of Seafolly is a must. And, of course, you will find it on Ôdabaïa.

Go for the ruffle
Perfect to give small breasts some volume, the ruffle is the coquettish detail to adopt this season. Ôdabaïa has perfectly understood this and offers the great looking Amenapih bikini with a floral print at a mini price. Quite simply the adorable bathing suit to slip in your suitcase and to whip out at every occasion.

Imitate Lara Croft
It’s easy to show off when you come out of the water wearing a furiously sexy bathing suit. And you can do just that with this Seafolly model with laces that precisely enhances the cleavage. Or how to emulate Lara Croft in one fell swoop. Wow ! It’s available on Ôdabaïa. Heads are going to spin...

Dare the nude style
It’s the bikini equivalent of Carrie Bradshaw’s “naked dress” (the famous nude dress that sent Big over the edge). Not easy to wear? This bikini in the same overtones, spotted by Ôdabaïa, by Tori Praver, ex top model and designer, native of the Hawaiian island of Maui wonderfully enhances golden skins and of course offers a strong potential of suggestion. To be avoided if your skin looks like chalk at the beginning of the holidays, but to whip out in order to make a sure catch.

Ultimately trendy when worn with a pretty basket, you can even slip it on to go sip a cocktail at a beach party. Cheers!
