How To Take A Great Bikini Pic, Honolulu, Hawaii

Bikinis and the beach are the combo for every summer selfie! Scrolling through Instagram at this time of year is bound to be full of girls in their swimsuits at destination locations, such as Honolulu, Hawaii! Fortunately, Born of the Water is located here which means we can help make your selfies stellar this summer. We’ve got a large selection of swimwear for every shape and size, so whether you’re local or on vacation, we can help you slay your selfie with a new kini! Here are some tricks to taking a fantastic bikini pic for your feed:

You know you best! Practicing in front of the mirror is best to discover your best angles. If you’re still not sure, make sure you or your bestie takes a picture from above, which helps to make you look smaller on the bottom half of your body.

Give Yourself a Good Background

Hey, if you're in Waikiki, you gotta show Waikiki (especially with Diamond Head in the background!). But if you're at aunty’s pool, try to stand in front of a solid color. Pick a background that’s somewhat lighter rather than dark, since it can help make you stand-out (as well as look tanner).

Great Lighting

Lighting for a picture can be tricky. When in doubt, shoot at sunrise and sunset. It's the best light in any circumstance! If you’re shooting midday, the sun is straight overhead, and you're going to have shadows under your eyes. In this case, lie back or wear sunglasses.

Love Your Swimsuit

If you love your swimwear, then you’ll definitely show it in your smile! Finding the perfect color and the perfect fit can definitely aid in feeling more confident, and show through your pictures.

Eh, Maybe Don't Sit

You could be a fitness model andla pearl swim bikini swimsuit mzking fully sitting down on a deck chair would still squish your thighs like you wouldn't believe. Seated photos are super challenging, so be wary. Try to stand or sit on your knees if possible.

Get Silly

Just have some fun with it! If you’re not up for a super posed picture, then opt for a candid since it’s super light and fun— don’t try too hard since this can end up killing the vibe in your selfie.

Have Fun

Confidence is attractive! We are all unique, and no woman should feel hindered from a bikini this summer. A smile is the best thing you can wear (besides a swimsuit)!
