recommendation for bikini

Postby hailstonez » Fri, 28 Apr 2006 11:59 pm

Any recommendations for places to shop for unique bikinis, offline or online? it's like any girls' nightmare to turn up at the beach in the same or similar bikini with at least 5 other pp.

Takashimaya 5th floor, or Tannlines at Wisma perhaps on the 2nd or 3rd floor.

For online, you can try Victoria Secrets and they will ship to SG. The good thing about VC is that it is more precisely-sized in regards to cup size and chest size. Just like bra sizes they would have 32 A, B and C, 34 A, B and C. However the tops may be ill-fitting for Chinese frame as cups are more far apart and sits lower at the chest. And it may need to be altered for best fit.

I especially like the 'candid' shots of the model performing housework in full regalia

Just get your regular bra size in SG and convert to US meaurement e.g 80 is equivalent to 36 in USA. Then chosse your cup size. American cups are a liitle bigger. The cup B in USA may be larger than cup B in SG. However swim bikins are made of spandex and it has a lot of give, so getting the exact cups is not that critical.

This is an excellent idea. You can exercise your wildest imagination and creativity to come up with the most unique design that nobody else will be wearing. The drawback is the lack of suport. Those twins need to be gently-craddled to counter gravitational force.

I will never look at women in bikini the same way again..

it's getting too technical.

Perhaps I have been over zealous in sharing my bikini knowledge :oops: . I love and can never get enough of them. So does my hubby and I have no idea why since I am the one who gets to wear them :???: .
