With Summer now officially in full swing, many fans at home have been turning to Love Island in the hopes of finding some last minute outfit inspiration to help make the most of the longer days and rising temperatures. But whether you’re jetting off this year, or staying home to make the most of a British stay-cation, we’ve found the perfect bikini courtesy of bombshell Jess Harding to help get into the summer party mood.
Spotted on Thursday night’s episode of the ITV2 dating show, Jess was seen wearing an eye-catching bikini emblazoned with Love Hearts as she chatted with the girls ahead of her date with newcomer Sammy Root. The stylish bikini has since been identified as the Candy Hearts Bikini Set, by Sherbert Lemons, a firm favourite of the star.
Priced at just £45, the matching set features functional string ties with triangular cups, while the bold print keeps the casual garment fun and flirty. Available in sizes XS to XL, the item will no doubt quickly fly off the shelves as the warmer weather begins to make itself known over the coming weeks.
If the Love Heart print doesn’t strike your fancy however, Jess has also been seen wearing the Green Reptile Holographic Bikini, which she actually wore to make her villa debut back on June 5th. Just like the Love Hearts bikini, the stylish two piece, features simple tie details alongside triangular cups, while the thong back brief allows for maximum tan exposure while lounging on the beach.
Interestingly, it was this bikini that Jess wore when she reignited the upside down bikini trend, as she reversed the top while wearing it on camera. While the trend may seem baffling to some, it has been a firm favourite with Islanders both past and present, since Antigoni Buxton first debuted the trend in Summer 2022.
Although it may not be immediately obvious, the upside down bikini trend actually makes your simple two piece a lot more versatile, and, according to Antigoni, a lot more flattering.
Last year's Love Island contestant said: “It gives the opportunity to show a bit of cheeky underboob. A bit of under-boob with a bit of a tan line looks kind of hot.” She also adds: “It lifts my boobs and makes them look a lot nicer.”
Although you can try the trend yourself with just about any regular triangle bikini top, brands have jumped at the chance to expand on the trend, with plenty of brands making bikini tops designed to look upside down, or with extra long strings that allows you to style it in a whole range of different ways.
