In the middle of summer I don’t want to wear anything other than a bikini in the water. But when it comes to surfing, this can be a bit of a problem. The last time I attempted to surf without a wetsuit, I exposed way more to Bondi than I would have liked to. Even my most secure triangle bikini top doesn’t seem to cut it when I’m diving under waves and coming off my board.
That’s where my new ‘Santorini’ bikini in aqua by Lychee Swimwear comes in. It’s got a crossed-back for extra security and unlike most bikinis in this style, this cut is super feminine. The bottoms are a little too skimpy to surf in, so I’ve been wearing my Roxy wetsuit shorts over them. I’m used to changing bikinis after a surf, so I’m loving the fact that I can now wear the same bikini when I’m sunbaking and chilling on the beach.
And just when I thought I couldn’t love Lychee Swimwear anymore – I discovered their bikinis are all only 50 bucks and come with free shipping worldwide YAY!
