We might not have Boity or Ayanda's bodies but that doesn't mean we can't all rock their bikinis

Summer is here and the holiday season is fast approaching as well.

Close behind? Swimming costume season. And for a lot of us, bikinis. Body positivity movements have definitely helped many shed our insecurities instead of trying to shed enough kilos to feel like we're bikini-ready.

From one pieces to two pieces, metalics to prints, there are so many options to choose from. So how are we going to make our swimwear choices?

There are many factors that go into choosing the perfect bikini - it is a combination on your choice of fit, colour and cut.

So we look to some of our favourite celebrities for some inspiration.

The underboob look has been a hot trend (Kourtney Kardashian may have had a little to do with it) and has been seen on a number of local and international celebrities. Boity recently sported this look at a holiday she shared on Instagram.

Sometimes a simple black one piece swimsuit is all you need, it's low key but can also be striking. Which is your favourite cut or style?

Strapless, cross body, backless, asymmetrical?

The trend that stands out the most is the laser cut one piece. While it may seem very subtle, the laser cut detail gives you just the kind of detail that makes it memorable on Ayanda Thabethe.

The off-the-shoulder frill neckline has been a favourite for quite some time now, but for this specific swimwear style the right colour counts for much more than you would think. The trick is getting a colour that complements your skin tone as seen on these celebrity looks.

Takkies took our breath away in her baby pink one piece.

A simple white swimsuit is another classic and hardly goes out of trend.

Paired with the right jewelry (for that holiday selfie you know) it can make it look glam. Lesego Legobane know as Thickleeyonce shows us how its done with a metallic jacket and hoop earrings.
