Actress, model and writer the multi-talented Charlotte Goiris is looking to add another notch to her belt as she competes in Miss Universe Australia! We love this gorgeous girl and couldn’t have been more excited that she chose to wear a piece by Kini during the swimwear round of the competition. Charlotte rocked a stunning bright pink two piece in our brief pant and triangle bralette top. This set is perfect for hourglass and pear-shaped girls as the contour line of the bralette adds a defined contour line to accentuate the smallness of your waist and the lower cut of the brief sits at the perfect place on your hips.
We are huge believers that everyone can look fabulous in their swimwear, in fact one of our favourite lines is ‘if you have a bikini and a body then you have a bikini body.’ So we were truly delighted to see American retailer ModCloth send such a beautifully positive message to the world.

Model, mum, blogger and all round style goddess Brodie Harper was seen rocking her very own custom Kini this week and we could not be more excited! As well as sharing our passion for fashion, fitness and shopping she also shares one of our fears, admitting ‘there is one word that leaves even the mort seasoned shopper running for the hills . . . swimwear!’ She wrote a gorgeous post about Kini and our custom swimwear over on her blog, By Brodie, and she designed this gorgeous floral and bright pink piece.
We were so excited to see that we had been featured last month in The Weekly Review’s list of ’emerging fashion trailblazers’ as they went through the concept and ideas behind Kini Swimwear.
Australia’s go-to lifestyle and fashion portal, the wonderful Fashion Society came along to check out our Melbourne Pop Up shop last month, and asked us a few questions. Their interest in us is an exciting step for us, as we love reading their hot tips on fashion and events all over Australia.
Now that we are officially in summer, it’s time to splash out in a new swimsuit and Perth Now are here to give us ladies advice on styling to suit each body shape so you can look your best when you catch your next wave.
The launch party for our first pop up store may have been last week, but it continues to live on within the pages of the internet with the help of a feature on Style Hunter all about the event and Kini’s first ever little store. Combined with our own photos that were taken during the launch, Style Hunter gives you a complete run down of what happened just in case you missed it.
We could not contain our excitement when we saw that one of our favourite magazines, The Renegade Collective, asked us for a few words about Kini Swimwear and featured us on their website!
December marks the beginning of summer in Australia, and Girlfriend mag is helping you prepare by sharing some of their favourite summer bikinis and swimwear tips. We love the way they used “real” girls for their shoot – each one has a unique and gorgeous body shape. At Kini we celebrate bodies of all shapes and sizes, so we’re proud to have one of our Kinis gracing the pages of a magazine with the same mentality.
Girlfriend styled the girls according to their body shapes. Colour blocking and frills were used to balance out Isabelle’s “hourglass” body shape. Raychel, who describes herself as “pear-shaped”, wears a floral one piece with a halter neck and side panelling. These features draw attention to her shoulders and accentuate her small waist. Finally, Hanna wears a bandeau style and low-slung briefs to elongate her body. It can be extremely hard to find the perfect bikini for your body, so Kini loves that Girlfriend is sharing some tips and giving their readers a greater chance of feeling confident during the summer season. For more bikini body advice – check out our post on how to choose the right swimwear for your body shape.
The fixed triangle top and basic pant can be designed as separates using our custom design tool, or alternatively, the “Easy Tiger Set” can be purchased in our Ready To Wear shop. It is the same leopard print kini worn by former Miss Universe Australia Laura Dundovic during her holiday in Bali, featured in The Daily Mail earlier this year.
Keep an eye out for Kini bikinis in your favourite magazines over summer. We’ve already graced the pages of Cleo, Cosmo, Elle and The Renegade Collective. If you spot us, let us know in the comment box below!

November’s Cleo set out to do all the hard work for you by finding out the biggest summer trends of the season and narrowing down the best bikini’s, one-pieces and high waisted tankini’s to look out for – including our high waisted frill floral bikini. Always there to help you out, thanks to Cleo you now have multiple recommendations to this seasons hottest bikini’s for looking fab, and we thank them for choosing us.
Fun and flirty, Cleo has officially deemed frill bikini’s perfect for flaunting your stuff. But keep in mind how minimal the frills are, each swimsuit keeps frills to one small section only rather than to overpower it with frills galore. Our bikini only has frills on the underwire top and no where else, making it an accent detail rather than the main attraction – and it fits in wonderfully with the selection of other swimwear that follows the same rule. Minimal frills can accentuate an area of the body, they can make your hips look smaller (due to added fabric around the top of the bikini) and can make your breasts look more defined (for the same reason). The tropical floral print of our custom kini really ties together that “fun in the sun” vibe that Cleo has stated frill bikini’s have. For a cute yet saucy appeal to your swimwear, look no further – frills are no longer “too young” but are now flattering and fun.
