Thinking about sunshine and looking at ordering some bikinis for my holiday in the spring. I really struggle to find ones that suit.

I'm a smallish 8-10 (34B)

I like this one from Boden

But don't know what size to order. How do Boden bikinis come up? Would I need an 8 top?

Can anyone recommend nice ones, normally go for bandeau tops, prints, bright, not normally padded and no wire.

I thought that one was nice too when I flicked through the catalogue. Why not order different sizes since it's free returns?

Ive found some nice swimmers in J Crew sale, and sometimes Old Navy when visiting US (although they do now ship to UK), and also a really cute one from Abercrombie (again when in US). It's teeny though, so you'd need to size up.

Ahh hadn't thought about Crew, will have a look, thanks! I looked in store in Fatface but not many places have summer stuff in yet annoyingly (but unsurprisingly).

I also think I will order both sizes and return one set. Do you know if Boden do come up big/small? I haven't ordered many clothes before.

Nowwhy if you are a size 8 to 10 it is highly unlikely your bra size is a 34 band.
I would check out the bra intervention threads!
I am a size 8 on top and wear a 28 band.
I know this is about bikini's but it will help you to find the right size bikini top if you go for a structured one.
