Three swimwear styles set to make a splash this summer

SPRING is here, and it’s time to blow up your inflatable flamingo again.

New swimwear styles arrive along with the warmer weather and Tigerlily designer Catherine Thorbecke says we’
re seeing three trends in particular: Sexy Bikinis Swimsuits, vintage two-pieces and bandeau bathing suits.

“There is no doubt about it — teeny bikinis are here to stay,” Catherine says.

that do not have fussy ties.

“We’re also very excited that vintage-inspired, soft underwire bikini bras and high-waisted bottoms are
making a resurgence.”

Tigerlily’s Voyage collection will get you in the swim spirit.

“Our Voyage collection pays homage to the free-spirited 1960s era and the glamorous lives of the jet-set,”
Catherine says.

“It is retro-inspired with a modern twist — premium, exclusive fabrications milled in France, Spain and
Italy, playful and unexpected styling, hints of lurex, beautiful embroidery detail and custom hardware.”

Catherine recommends opting for a cup fit bikini top if you’re sporting a curvy figure for extra comfort.
“For those who are blessed with curves, we are loving our new flattering C/D (cup) longline tri, sporty
Bianca bra and feminine Elle bra styles, all designed especially for a bigger bust,” she says.

For athletic figures, Catherine says bandeau styles give the illusion of a wider bust.

“For those with a slimmer, more athletic figure, we suggest you try our new straight-across Eden bikini bra
style or our new sporty, high legline Elle pant, named after the queen of the bikini herself — Elle
Macpherson,” Catherine says.

Take that as a tip from an expert — brief straps that sit higher on the hips give the illusion of longer

For those feeling a little self conscious ahead of bikini weather, Catherine says confidence is key no matter
what you’re dressed in.

“I have always loved this quote: ‘Skin is sexy. Body shapes are sexy. It’s not the Sexy Bikinis Swimsuits. If a woman is
sexy, she is sexy, no matter what she is wearing’ (from) Angela Missoni,” Catherine says.

“While having a beautiful, great-fitting Sexy Bikinis Swimsuits is essential, looking good in a swimsuit is all about having
the right attitude.

“Hold your head up, walk proud and enjoy your time in the sunshine.”

Dorit Kemsley Gives a Tantalizing Peek at Her New, Neon Swimwear Collection

All summer long, Dorit Kemsley kept her Instagram feed filled with images of herself rocking amazingly stylish swimwear — but that’s no surprise. After all, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal is a swimwear designer herself, and sits at the helm of the fabulous line Beverly Beach by Dorit. (Watch the video above to see Dorit dish on her line.)

Indeed, dreaming up fabulous bikini designs is a full-time job for the Beverly Hills mom — and her work doesn’t end when summertime wraps up. So, even while Dorit’s fellow Beverly Hills ‘Wife Lisa Rinna starts designing cozy fall sweaters, Boy George’s bestie has two-piece ‘suits in electric hues at the top of her mind.

On September 5, the RHOBH pal took to Instagram to show off a sneak peek at an upcoming, neon design. “Crimson pink sneak peek,” she wrote. She wore the suit with a swipe of hot-pink lipstick and a straight, sleek ponytail.

This is the second sneak peek at the upcoming collection; the first one also had a neon theme. Check it out:

Lena Dunham and Emily Ratajkowski Teamed Up for a Sexy Swimwear Shoot

Lena Dunham took to Instagram on Wednesday to share some shots from a recent photo shoot that she starred in for Emily Ratajkowski’s swimwear line, Inamorata Swim. And while we’re used to seeing Ratajkowski as the one posing for the camera in a bathing suit, this time she got behind the lens and played art director. Clearly, she knew what she was doing.

“That time @emrata made me a full [oiled-up] swimsuit issue chick for @inamorataswim,” Dunham captioned a carousel of pictures on her Instagram feed. “I’ve loved Emily forever because she’s wise, kind, gets how complex feminism and femininity are, and gives the perfect amount of fucks. Honored to get behind her.”

In the photos, Dunham is seen wearing an oversize hat, a strapless leopard one-piece, and a pair of mod-inspired circular earrings. The brand referred to Dunham as “one of our muses” in an Instagram post, and given the serious face and attitude she’s serving up throughout the shoot, it’s easy to see why.

The stunning series of pictures wasn’t the only thing to come out of the Dunham-Ratajkowski photo shoot. In her Instagram Story, the Girls star also revealed that Ratajkowski taught her the meaning of the phrase “thighbrow” (the crease where your thigh meets your hip) during their time together, and points out that her own is on full display.


Nina Dobrev Rocks A Slinky Black Swimsuit While Playing Beach Volleyball

Nina Dobrev was revealing her toned body in a black swimsuit as she played a little beach volleyball on the
sand in Malibu. Daily Mail shared new snaps of the former The Vampire Diaries actress rocking a black bathing
suit while enjoying some time by the ocean in California on September 2.

The new pictures shared by the site this week showed Nina having some fun with friends April Love Geary and
her musician husband Robin Thicke as the gang played a fun and friendly game in her slinky back one-piece.

The actress – who most recently co-starred alongside former Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria in the
movie Dog Days – showed off some serious skin as the group hit the ball back and forth over the net,
sporting a black swimsuit with thin straps and white frills across the top and the bottom.

Nina appeared to be getting pretty into the game, as the candid paparazzi snaps shared by the site this week
showed her running around on the sand in her swimwear as the group played with the ball.

Dobrev left her signature brunette hair straight and down as she hit the beach, showing off her very
impressive beach body to the world as she took part in the game during Labor Day weekend.

But Dobrev’s slinky swimwear isn’t the only time she’s been showing off some skin in a one-piece recently.

As Inquisitr previously reported, the stunning actress was revealing her toned body once again as she headed
to the infamous Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.

The star showed some skin in a black mesh bodysuit while sporting her hair up in pigtails and an array of
different necklaces as she shielded her eyes from the sun in funky embellished sunglasses while hitting the

But there’s no doubting that Dobrev works seriously hard to keep her seriously impressive swimsuit body in

Speaking to Shape Magazine in July 2017, Nina confirmed that strength training is actually the key to her
killer figure.

“I actually did not do a lot of [strength training] in the past—I only did yoga and ran in terms of
training,” she explained to the health and fitness magazine of how she changed up her workout routine.

“Strength training with weights and such a regimented schedule has been new to my life, and now that I
understand the way it all works, the science behind it, it’s changed everything for me,” Dobrev then
continued of her workouts, admitting that it’s also allowed her to eat more.

“I eat so much more than I used to,” Nina said of her diet, “and I feel so much leaner and stronger than I
ever imagined I’d be.”

Emily Ratajkowski Shows Off Her Fun-Loving Side On A Segway In Her Latest Instagram Post

Emily Ratajkowski is well-known for her fast-paced and beautiful Instagram feed. Usually, the photos feature the svelte model rocking various street style looks or wandering around dream-like islands in bikinis. The bikini looks are unsurprising as Ratajkowski runs her own swimwear line called Inamorataswim.

However, Ratajkowski took a departure from her usual glamour shots to share a photo of herself riding a Segway on an undisclosed beach location. The model wears what looks to be a leopard print bikini top paired with blue and white polka-dot bottoms (that both look to be garments included in her swimwear line judging from recent posts). Behind her stands a small white pooch who is clearly eyeing the fun scene in front of it. It is unclear who took the photo but guesses include celebrity photographers, a member of her girl squad, or her new husband.

Ratajkowski’s fun side is never really far from view. Even on her social media accounts, the model totes clever captions and funny photos. Including an early summer snap that features her wearing an Oprah Winfrey tube top. While Ratajkowksi initially made her fame modeling and using social media, she has now added the labels actress, feminist, and designer to her bio as well. She has spoken out in support of Planned Parenthood and will be starring in the 2018 film Cruise.

Ratajkowski is a recently married woman, having tied the knot with her partner, Sebastian Bear-Mcloud in a small courthouse ceremony on February 23 this year. Ratajkowski stunned in a yellow pantsuit which she paired with an elegant veiled black hat. Ratajowski made the marriage a surprise by simply posting on her Instagram story details and pictures of her wedding. Her secret wedding was attended by close friends and took the entire internet by surprise. Vanity Fair reports that even the model’s parents didn’t know and that she had to break the news to them before reporters ran the story. On the topic of her now iconic mustard suit, Ratajkowski had this to say.

Pregnant Pippa Middleton shows off growing baby bump in bikini during Italian babymoon

With just weeks to go until they welcome their first child, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews have enjoyed a brief babymoon in Tuscany. The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister and her financier husband spent an idyllic three-day break in Italy, where they were pictured enjoying some quality time together under the sun.

Looking tanned, toned and positively blooming in a bikini, Pippa, 34, was seen caressing her baby bump as she soaked up the sun in Tuscany. The mum-to-be, whose baby will be a cousin for Kate’s children Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and four-month-old Prince Louis, relaxed on sun loungers with her husband at the excusive Il Pellicano hotel in Porto Ercole.

The couple, who married in May 2017, also enjoyed a spot of swimming, climbing into the ocean via a ladder from their hotel. Fitness fanatic Pippa took her goggles and swam laps along the coastline, taking breaks by lying on her back in the waves.


Pippa, who writes a fitness column in Waitrose Weekend magazine, recently told her readers how much she has been enjoying swimming during the latter stages of her pregnancy. “Swimming throughout pregnancy offers a wonderful feeling of weightlessness,” she said. “As the months pass, you feel heavier by the day, but being in water gives that floating, light-as-air feeling that soothes and relieves the body, counteracts increased back strain and stretches the legs from the growing bump.”

And she added: “As the summer weather contributes to feelings of bloating and swelling, swimming will keep your body cooler while exercising, something that is a relief in pregnancy.”

Locally crafted unisex threads and splashy swimwear to storm 32nd edition of Vancouver Fashion Week

B.C. designers Adam-Lin Bungag and Anelia Basson will hit the runway with gender-fluid garments and printed sun-protection wear, respectively, during Vancouver Fashion Week, which takes place from September 17 to 23.

Face tattoos may be the dernier cri among today’s recalcitrant youth—to which we have to earnestly ask, why?—but Adam-Lin Bungag is all about the neckline. Rather than dubious depictions of barbed wire, stars, and split-open hearts, however, three simple words—each letter capitalized in plain sans-serif font—are centred above Bungag’s collarbone, the phrase clearly visible against the 23-year-old’s olive skin: NOT DEAD YET.The Philippines-born and Vancouver-raised fashion designer had the expression inked on him last year following a particularly tough struggle with mental illness. It’s a reminder that “I can keep going and I can be the person that I want to be. And I can create my future, my truth, and my outlook,” Bungag tells the Straight by phone. But as friends, colleagues, and strangers increasingly came to recognize him through the distinguishing tattoo, the message evolved into his brand.

“I was like, ‘Well, this is a great business move because people know me for this tattoo, and people who don’t know me will know the name because it’s so—well, it kind of hits you hard,” explains Bungag.

Prior to rebranding his clothing line as Not Dead Yet earlier this year, Bungag was designing and presenting edgy, gender-fluid garments under his first name. Not Dead Yet is a continuation of this work, offering up a made-to-order selection of brash, unisex, and often voluminous apparel—think drop-crotch trousers, graphic crewnecks, and decorative harnesses—that command one’s undivided attention in an oversaturated fashion market. The LaSalle-College grad liberally employs “marginalized” fabrics like PVC and latex in his collections, expertly crafting them into cropped blazers, hoodies, and belted military-style pants fit for casual wear.

The shiny latex, in particular, lends the items an arresting but still approachable quality—especially when the material is drenched in vivid hues like red, lime green, and yellow—helping to combat the “oversexualization” that typically surrounds the textile. “Just because the main industry in which latex is used is fetish,” notes Bungag, “doesn’t mean everything we do with latex is fetish.”

Bungag’s manipulation of unconventional fabrics is evident in Not Dead Yet’s past collections, and will also carry through to Eulogy, a boxy, “dress-shirt–heavy” line for spring/summer 2019 that the designer will present at New York Fashion Week and Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW). Informed by Bungag’s interests and influences during his so-called “emo phase”—a dark time in his youth when he would readily self-harm—the collection will make generous use of Tyvek, a waterproof and tear-resistant synthetic fibre most commonly seen in housewraps and the coveralls worn by tradespeople.

“That fabric symbolizes how crushing and how easy it is to leave scars on someone,” the designer explains. “Or how, even though you try to iron it out and make it better, there’s still going to be creases.” While many of Euology’s pieces will be cut to feel billowing and extravagantly oversized, there will be more skin-tight garments as well. These, too, serve a purpose. “The stuff that is fitted is meant to feel constrictive, like it’s holding you back,” notes Bungag.

As a queer man who has wrestled with identity issues and feelings of inadequacy, Bungag wants other LGBT folks to view Not Dead Yet as a safe space where they can express themselves freely through their wardrobe choices. “That’s really the driver for Not Dead Yet: to share what the queer experience is, what my experiences are, and what marginalized experiences are,” he emphasizes. “And to just share feelings, because, often, you can’t express those feelings well enough in words.”

Bungag—who is set to appear on Slice’s competitive reality series, Stitched, this fall—is one of four B.C.–based designers appearing at the 32nd edition of VFW. Other homegrown talents are Lillea Goian, a 20-year-old who makes comparably not-for-the-faint-of-heart gender-neutral pieces, and Kirsten Ley, who will present an avant-garde collection of couture gowns inspired by 1900s anatomy diagrams. And then there’s Anelia Basson, a newcomer to VFW who will debut Explore the Journey, the spring/summer 2019 line from her Ania Art label that’s comprised of flowy dresses, swimwear, and sun-protection apparel for both men and women.

A self-taught artist and designer who’s dabbled in everything from painting and photography to textiles and ceramics, Basson dreams up colourful, psychedelic patterns before printing them on T-shirts, rash guards, and silky shorts and frocks. Many of her designs are abstract—boasting what Basson describes as a “tribal” style—though some feature the outlines of bears, rhinos, and other creatures that nod to the 56-year-old’s adopted home on the West Coast and her birthplace of South Africa. Amid the swirling shades of azure, rust, and violet are references to B.C.’s Indigenous communities, too.“A few of my fabrics are representative of the beauty of Indigenous culture,” Basson, who is based in Chilliwack, explains. “And through each of those prints, there’s a story to be told.”

In addition to honouring her roots and surroundings, Basson takes care to consider Mother Earth in her work. The designer’s swimwear and sun-protection garb is manufactured from a breathable, ecofriendly fabric crafted from post-consumer plastic bottles and crab and shrimp shells, and boasts a UPF rating of 50 and is antibacterial and odour-zapping, to boot “It’s very important to me to be more aware of the environment,” she says, “because the fashion industry can be a very large polluter in the world.”

Explore the Journey will tell the story of Basson’s voyage in life thus far—both as an artist and designer, and as a woman who immigrated to Canada from South Africa more than 25 years ago. She hopes that wearers of the collection will feel as poised and content as she does putting it together. “I just want the customer to feel freedom in the comfort of the fabric,” she explains, “and to feel confident when wearing my dresses.”

Bungag feels similarly. “It’s really about how you allow them [the audience] to see it and experience it,” he says. “They can either see your story or create their own story. And that’s so powerful.”
