Substance X Kini Swimwear: Spots

Last week we shared with you the striped bikini designed by Ally Carey of Substance Blog. This week, it’s time to admire her second creation, and this one’s all about polka-dots!

Polka-dots are often associated with vintage styles, and that’s exactly where Ally pulled her inspiration from, channelling her “mum and her sisters in the 70’s when beach culture was prominent.”

You can buy both of Ally’s designs from our ready-to-wear shop, or create your own bikini using our custom swimwear design tool. If you buy during October, a portion of proceeds will be donated to the NBCF to support the fight against breast cancer. There’s no better time to buy a custom kini!

We’d love to know which design is your favourite – STRIPES or SPOTS? Leave us a comment in the box below!

Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

Ah, polka dots. It’s a swimwear print that has never gone out of style since it was popularised during the 1950’s and 60’s. During this time, bikinis were still considered very risqué. Fast forward fifty odd years, and now women are encouraged to wear their bikinis with confidence – something we wholeheartedly support here at Kini.

Recently, Ally Carey from Substance Blog created two custom bikinis using our swimwear design tool, and of course, one of them featured a timeless polka dot print. So, in celebration of the almighty polka-dot, we decided to share a collection of our favourite polka-dot bikinis through the ages.

Stripes are a classic trend that never go out of fashion, and they are proving to be a popular choice once again for summer 2014. Celebrities and fashion bloggers have joined in with the love for all things nautical, but it can be a daunting trend as you want the stripes to work with your body and you also want to stand out in your swimwear, no one wants to be playing Where’s Wally on the beach.
