Acambha | My Bikini MusthavesWhen I received these bikinis from Acambha I immediately knew I wanted to shoot them in a tropical surrounding. A lot of green, palm trees and still close to the sea. Lucky for me I had a trip planned to Curacao. With dozens of beautiful locations to choose from!

Acambha swimwear is a Balinese brand but I’ve never been to Bali and haven’t experienced that island spirit yet. But I wanted to make sure to capture the relaxed vibe of this day thanks to the amazing location and cute bikinis of course. I think both me and the photographer pulled it of, don’t you think? I even played around with my hair style during the shoot haha!Acambha | My Bikini MusthavesAcambha | My Bikini MusthavesShop print bikinis here

The Acambha collections named Magic Dance and Voices of Freedom are really defining the essence of the brand: bohemian spirit and laid-back attitude. The feminine and unique pieces are all little treasures from this magical island. Even being almost 7 months pregnant during this shoot I didn’t feel uncomfortable for a sec and was really at ease with what I was wearing #goodvibesonly

I love it when swimwear brands expend their collection with matching beach dresses, sarongs and bags. Not that I always wear a bikini with matching cover-up but I like to have a wide selection to choose from. Because sometimes a certain print looks better in a dress than in a swimsuit. It shows the brands expertise in designing and I think Acambha did this really well in their Free Spirit range.Acambha | My Bikini MusthavesAcambha | My Bikini MusthavesShop high neck bikini tops here

Although it was interesting for me to see if I would fit in these bikinis since I was 29 weeks pregnant when this shoot took place, I still felt comfortable in them (wearing size small in both bikinis). Balinese swimwear brands tend to be a bit smaller than European brands and I have to say the bikinis were slightly tighter than usual. But that’s just because I’ve gained a few pounds here and there ;)

Tell me, which one of these two bikinis is your favourite and why? Would love to know!
