How funny is this throwback video of the first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show back in 1995? When I first watched this I honestly thought that it was more dated than it is. I think that it’s safe to say that they’ve evolved since then with their now multi-million dollar over-the-top shows with celebrity performances, diamond-covered lingerie, and themed runway segments. They’ve now literally turned this runway show into a worldwide, televised event that millions of people look forward to every year. It’s an understatement to say that they’ve since changed.
Now compare that to some snippets from this year’s past show; it floors you how much things can change in 16 years!

March is coming to an end and beach weather is just two months away! Before you know it, you’re going to be searching for the quickest workout regime to whip your bod into shape and you’ll also be trying to find this season’s cutest bikini styles before they’re on back-order until Christmas! And I will tell you this; Victoria’s Secret has some amazing styles this year and I want to share three of my favorites. My online Vicki’s shopping cart and the treadmill will be my best friends for the next 8 weeks!
So the thing I love the most about the three styles I want to share with you is that they all offer SUPPORT. Whether you fill out a bikini top with ease or you need some help just trying to push them up, you need a top that is supportive, especially since you’re going to be marching around in front of everyone at the beach and you want to feel as comfortable and look as good as you possibly can. I’m not going to lie, I always feel self-conscious because I don’t fill out a bikini top the way that I do a bra and I always wish bikini tops had more wiring or supportive technology integrated into them. The first swimsuit that caught my eye is the Miraculous Pleather Push-Up Halter Top. The top is $58 and the bottom is $30 and talk about bombshell va va voom! The top gives you maximum support and the special padding allows you to be lifted up and out, adding the illusion of almost two cup sizes. It has a pleather, shiny appearance and the sleekness of the black top and bottom screams sexy. It’s a simple swimsuit but I love it!

The second one that caught my eye is the Forever Sexy Sailor Bandeau Top & Bottom Swimsuit. This adorable, flirty swimsuit goes perfectly with this season’s nautical trend and I love the fact that it doesn’t necessarily have a halter or strapless wear to it; instead, it has classic straps, which can be removed, but I find classic straps to be easier to deal with when you’re laying out trying to avoid tan lines. I love the little navy bow-detailing in the center because it really gives it a special flair. The top is $50 and the cute little matching sailor skirted bottom has a slit on the side and a cute gold clasp in the front and it runs for $40.

Lastly, my favorite swimsuit is the BioFit 5-Way Push-Up Bandeau Top. This amazing bikini top feels like it’s custom-made to anyone who wears it. The secret is that each cup size has unique shape and padding to feel custom-made and you can wear it five different ways: halter, classic, crossback, v-front, or strapless. Like the sailor top, it has a cute bow-detailing in the front and it also has underwire cups with push-up padding. It runs for $48 and it does have a matching skirted bottom, which I love, but I personally prefer a more classic bottom. Victoria’s Secret thinks of everything because they allow you to choose from alternative styles, such as low-rise, side-tie, and foldover scoop, some selling for as little as $28. You can choose from over a dozen different colors or patterns for your top and bottom. I actually love the featured one that they chose, the black and white dot. It resembles a subtle animal print but it’s pretty and can be paired with multiple different solid colored bottoms. I can’t wait to start my ordering! Make sure that you check the size chart and return policy on their website before ordering.
