RACHEL, 22 YEARS OLD, FROM NETHERLANDS
TELL ME ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE WEARING
It’s a design by Anna Nooshin, a dutch lifestyle blogger who worked with Hunkemoller to create a bikini collection. I really wanted this one but it sold out in one day. Then I went back another time and they had one sitting on the rack – and it was exactly my size! Meant to be.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A GOOD BIKINI?
It needs to fit your figure and your skin tone. There’s so many styles but you can’t wear everything. I’d rather it looks good if it is a little uncomfortable, and not wear something that doesn’t fit well.
HOW MANY BIKINIS DO YOU PACK WHEN YOU GO ON A BEACH HOLIDAY?
Ha! Too many! I like to have one for every day! For a 2 week holiday I probably have 8 – 10 bikinis. But because I have so many they last a long time and I get good value for the money I spend.
HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO LOOK GOOD ON HOLIDAY?
I think everyone would like to look good, but if I’m on holiday I’m happy anyway so it’s not the most important thing! I’m not worried about what other people think of me.
DO YOU GET MUCH OF A CHANCE TO WEAR BIKINIS IN THE NETHERLANDS?
No – the weather is not good enough. That’s why I love getting away as much as possible.
ANY TIPS FOR PEOPLE ABOUT TO HEAD AWAY ON THEIR HOLIDAY?
Don’t pack too much – leave some space to go shopping!
