As summer rolls in for the southern-hemisphere inhabiters and many of us experiencing lockdowns across the nation catch tentative glimpses of the light at the end of the tunnel, one thing is on the mind, and that thing, is the beach. The love language of Australians everywhere, the beach is inherent to our nature, and with it, the perfect swimsuit is an essential wardrobe staple. Here, we pay tribute to the classic: the string bikini. The adjustable tie up bikini that we all own at least one iteration of, string bikinis are some of the most versatile of the bunch, and a style that will forever be in our hearts.
Perhaps you're erring on the side of micro kini's this summer, and showing as much skin as humanly possible after being holed up inside for far too long, in which case we have you covered. If you're in need of a string bikini that feels slightly more demure, we're also big fans of the classics. From lurex to crotchet to good old fashioned nylon, these string bikinis will have you dreaming of white hot heat and summer nights so balmy you never quite make it out of your swimsuit. We are of the strong opinion to ditch the idea that only the smallest of sizes can embrace the string, and encourage those of all body types to lace up in this classic. For pieces that leave little to the imagination and everything to the dream of a never ending summer, these are the string bikinis we're buying this summer.
