Design your own Bikini

Design your own Bikini - Melbourne Girl

If you have always wanted to add your own personal touches to your swimsuit, then we have an insider tip for you – you can now design your own bikini.

You can now custom design your very own bikini (or tankini or one pieces) online, and have them shipped to direct to your front door or work desk, just in time for summer or your next holiday.

It’s all thanks to the wonderful crew at Kini Swimwear. The brand began in 2010 when founders Em and Elle gave up waiting for someone else to set up a website where you could design and order your swimwear exactly as you want it!

Growing up on the sandy white beaches and crystal clear waters of Western Australia, the surf is part of their DNA, and they know the value of a great bikini  – one that fits right,  flatters  your shape, shows of your best features and makes you feel comfortable and confident about your body.

Last month I jumped onto Kini Swimwear and created my own design! As you can see in the image below, the illustrated design template allows you to be as innovative as you want, with various fabric options, strap alternatives and style cuts. You can quickly create an account that allows you to save your creations in a gallery (so you come back to them to order at another time).

The simple process was so much fun… My only problem was choosing only one! No doubt I’ll be visiting again soon for another creation.

    I have a pair of bikini bottoms I would like made. I was wondering if it is possible for me to send them to you and you can kind of recreate them? Thanks for your help anyway 🙂
