My Favourite Little Black Bikinis

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-all-sisters jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-all-sisters jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-all-sisters All Sisters Bikini (Similar here) | All Sisters Bikini Bottoms (Similar here) | Sunday Somewhere Yetti Sunglasses


I admit most people don’t have as many bikinis as I do, but if you’re going to invest in one, it has to be a little black bikini. I love a good, supportive fit, made from good fabric like this one from All Sisters and below I’ve put together a slideshow of some others I also recommend.

A fun, new style I don’t yet have but is definitely on my list is this double strap cross back bikini or this ballerina inspired bikini top and lastly this mesh insert triangle bikini which looks divine (insert heart eyes emoji). Is black your favourite bikini colour or do you prefer prints and colour??

The bikini colour you need for this summer

bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear bikini-swimwear Zulu and Zephyr Easterly Harness Bikini (black here) (similar here)


Green bikinis are one of those things this season that everyone is jumping onto. Well when I say green it’s more olive or khaki, a natural green. I love this colour because as we go into the middle of the summer season your tan is a little deeper and the khaki colour will really compliment your skin tone. I naturally have an olive undertone in my tan but I believe no matter what tone your skin is it can pull off this gorgeous bikini colour.

Try this one from Jade Swim with thin triangle straps, or this strapless bikini with bow detail or my peronal fave from Kiini.

Watermelon Waterbaby

I wanted to shoot a bikini a little differently so I did as I always do on a hot, sunny day and blow up a floatie! I got this super cute watermelon blow up from Clark Rubber and if you wanted you can get a whole fruit salad including limes and strawberries. The next one I’m going to invest in is the big blow up boat – they’re so fun out on the bay with a bunch of friends and an esky! Seriously my favourite thing to do on New Years Eve.

The best thing about this as a Christmas gift is that it’s perfect for all summer long, I could imagine me on Christmas day after lunch, blowing it up in the backyard and using it as an air mattress as some younger sibling family member just stands there spraying a hose into the air and letting the cold water fall onto you…. the bliss… That or you’re lucky enough to have a pool for it’s intended use (which my family don’t!).

Seamless Black Bikini

I’ve worn alot of bikinis in my time and nothing annoys me more than a bikini that’s too tight, which is often the case and why I order a size up (10) to my normal dress size (8). However when I ordered this Grana bikini it was nice to find that it is completely seamless at the edges. Just like your favourite seamless underwear you wear under your bodycon dresses and skirts these bikinis won’t be giving you muffin top! I also got the red one peice which I featured on my instagram here and here. They’re also good if you’re into a little bit more coverage.

Just checking in! hope you’re all well and loving life. Thought I’d share these unpublished photos Wes and I took while we were on the Central coast. I love this little series because the beach was almost completely empty and I was actually struggling with catching any light (it was about 6pm) and the wind was gale force. But despite this we still managed to do what we love and do best which is capture photos and enjoy the beach.

Hope you’re all having the best weekend and are ready to wrap up the year!!

Mid Week Bliss

lespecs lespecs lespecs lespecs jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds-camilla Camilla Divinity Dance Bikini | Lespecs Bodoozle Sunglasses


One of the best things about working for yourself is that you get to choose your weekends. I often look at the weather for the week and pick the days I want to spend at the beach and work my week around that haha.

In saying that, it’s not always fun and easy. I often work weekends and late nights/ early mornings. But you can only do it it you’re motivated enough and love what you do.

In this look I’m wearing this gorgeous Camilla bikini. It’s such a good shape and they’re so comfortable! The waistband has an elastic and the straps are adjustable to suit your bust size. I’d say the bust coverage is small and the bottoms coverage is medium.

Kim’s Beach Hideaway

I got a two storey villa right on Toowoon Bay Beach, literally metres from the crashing waves.

The entire experience is beautiful from the delightful staff, the amazing buffet meals, dual showers, spas, the comfiness of the king sized bed to the ease we had getting to and from the beach.

We were truly blessed by the gorgeous weather we had as well! So thank you to the team at Kim’s I can’t wait to go back.

Was such a fun shoot and great way to document our time in Bali and capture how we don’t ever really take anything too seriously and we’re just out to have a lot of fun, see beautiful places and meet wonderful people. We’re already planning our trip back!

One Piece Bikinis For Your Bust Type

swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island swimwear-rottnest-island Karamelon Bikini | Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars | Triwa Sunnies


I’m just gonna put it out there… I’m a bit bikini obsessed. I love a good quality bikini and that includes the perfect little black one piece bikini that should be staple in everyone’s beach wardrobe. I’m going to talk you through your options and what’s best for your bust shape.

Smaller chest: Your traditionally trained stylist with tell you to go for something with ruffles or bows or something that has embellishment on the chest to accentuate your bust. To me that’s fine, but personally I am a much more minimal bikini wearer and I don’t ever wear bows or frills on anything. I would embrace not having a ridiculous amount of cleavage and opt for a super low cut bikini like this one which has padding in it. The beauty of not having out there cleavage means you can get away with this style without looking slutty. Another alternative is a style with a alot of panel detailing on the bust. Super fashion forward.

Bigger Chest: I’d say I fall into this category (being a DD) and although I love the high neck style it actually doesn’t make your chest look smaller or flatter your bust, but in fact tends to make it look bigger with more of a monoboob vibe. Unless that’s the look you’re going for then I’d suggest a low cut style, but not too low cut (because from experience your boobs fall right out!). I love backless styles and if you don’t feel like you need the ‘support’ then give this style a go but there are also plenty of one-piece styles that have the in-built bra with a much more conservative back.

Somewhere in between: You’re the babes that can get away with any of the above. Try a balconette style or one of these sexy front zip bikinis which you can adjust to whatever mood you’re in <insert winky face>
