2017 Summer Picks: Bikini

BY Wendy

I've been dreaming about visiting the beach lately. Salty hair, sandy beach bums, teeny tiny bikinis. Ahhh…. isn't that the perfect summer getaway? But

a. I have no money to travel

b. My bikini body is not ready

c. I don't have any nice bikini

You see, I'm a problem solver. When my dreams get crushed by reality, I try to un-crush it. A friend of mine says this a lot, and now I’m starting to live by it too: if you want something, make it happen. So right now, while I’m working my ass off to get a job and work on my blog and video content to make money (please refer to point a above), I am also practicing yoga and controlling my diet to get my bikini body ready (refer: point b). Okay, point a and b are in progress, which means… it's time for me to look for a nice bikini right?

I found this blogshop called Zaful a while ago and they have many cute clothes, especially swimwear, at really affordable prices. You only need to spend $30 USD to get free delivery worldwide, which I thought is pretty reasonable too.

Here are some of my favourite bikini designs for this summer:

Tropical Print Plunge Bikini - Green S

Shop the Tropical Print Plunge Bikini. On SALE: $16.49

Palm prints has been all the rage since last summer, and it doesn't seem to be going away yet!

Low Waisted Cami Padded Bikini Set - Red S

Shop the Low Waisted Cami Padded Bikini Set.

Red is the colour for swimwear this year. This plain basic would be the perfect all-year round swimwear for both the beach and the hot tub in winter!

Front Tied Textured Thong Bikini Set - Yellow S

Shop the Front Tied Textured Thong Bikini Set. ONLY: $11.99

Ditch the cover up, pair this front tie bikini top with a pair of denim shorts and you have the cutest outfit already.

Bralette Crochet Top And Floral Tied Bikini Bottoms - White S

Shop the Bralette Crochet Top And Floral Tied Bikini Bottoms. ONLY: $11.99

I'm so in love with crochet bikinis, but I honestly have no idea how it works… Like, does it not get heavy when it's drenched?

V String Bralette Bikini Set - Laterite S

Shop the V String Bralette Bikini Set. On SALE: $13.49

I don't know how naked you'll look in a nude bikini, but I couldn’t get my eyes off these classy looking bikinis. What with those string around the waist and top!

A quick glance at the shop's bio tells me that Zaful is an online fast fashion store based in Hong Kong. I placed my order for a few pieces last week and I received one of the packages today already. For the price that I paid, I would say that the quality of the bikini is good enough. The product is exactly like what it claims on the website, and the sizing matches the chart. I have no idea when I’ll be visiting the beach yet, but I can't wait to wear my bikinis already!
