23 best bikinis to buy and wear on holiday for some winter sun

Okay, we know what you’re thinking: bikinis? In winter? Guys, it’s freezing outside? But now that going further than the British coast is a bit less complicated, we can escape to some winter sun and don the cutest and best bikinis wherever we end up.

There’s a plethora of warm countries to travel to now that the world has opened it’s doors again, and – since the weather has taken a turn – they’re all bound to get snapped up fast by people looking for some vitamin D. The safest thing for it, after booking of course, is a daily peruse through the swimwear sections of all our fave brads (read: ASOS, Sefridges, Net-A-Porter and H&M).

Even if you’re headed nowhere more exotic than a holiday cottage with a hot tub this year, there’s no reason you can’t do it in style. Whether you have been savvy enough to secure a weekend break with a spa somewhere in the UK or are going more far flung, a bikini is the best way to get you in the holiday mood.

There’s little discrepancy over the fact that high leg and high waisted styles reign supreme, while capped sleeves, ruffle trims and crinkled fabrics are proving similarly popular for 2022.

Retro-inspired underwire is appearing on more bikini tops than ever before, which is great news for girls with bigger boobs. Whether you’re an A-cup or on the bustier side of things, they’ll make you feel confident and supported. We are also here for the fact so many bikini brands are including recycled materials in their fabrics, making any new buys less impactful on the planet.

The leopard print trend we’ll be seeing throughout our wardrobes is continuing into our swimwear collections, too, as proven with this animal print bikini from ASOS, and we’ll be seeing lots of bright colours and strappy designs through bikinis like this one from Mango and this one from Faithful The Brand. The copious amounts of seersucker we saw last summer? That’s making a comeback too – check out this Hunza G bandeau bikini and this colour-block mix and match set from ASOS DESIGN.
