Get Ready For Summer With Vix Beachwear In Support of EACH

We have been delighted with the positive response and support the Baby Cambridge Fundraiser has received thus far. It's terrific to see so many of you supporting the invaluable work carried out by East Anglia's Children's Hospices. The Duchess described the organisation as "inspirational" and in her role as patron of the charity she spent part of her second anniversary visiting Naomi House to mark Children's Hospice Week.

Naomi House Facebook Page

We will be running a host of contests, giveaways and online activities in the coming months featuring items from a selection of Kate's favourite brands. We want to make this fundraiser fun whilst raising much needed funds for EACH.

For our second giveaway (I hope you all enjoyed the Links of London giveaway over at What Kate Wore last week) we have two amazing prizes I think you will rather enjoy, especially with summer approaching. Have you guessed what they are yet?



Yes, it's beachwear from one of Kate's favourite brands, VixThe First Prize includes the Cayman Bia Tube Bikini. The blue and white tie dye halter neck style bikini features logo sliders for adjustable coverage and removable padding. It retails for £198.

An essential summer piece to have in your wardrobe is a stylish kaftan; and one lucky entrant will win the gorgeous Pipa Kaftan piece. It is described as:

'Vix's lightweight white kaftan is perfect for warm weather. Slip this pretty broderie anglaise piece over your favourite bikini at the beach, or team it with metallic sandals for sunset cocktails.'

The Pipa Kaftan retails for £199.

And the final item included in the first prize is a pair of Gold Vix Sandals.

Before we share information on how to win these fabulous prizes, Claudine Davies, owner of Chelsea-based Biondi Couture, stockists of the widest selection of designer swimwear, beachwear and accessories in the UK, not to mention a favourite of Kate and Pippa's, has kindly shared some essential tips to help you perfect your holiday wardrobe.

BIKINIS WITH BIONDI

It’s the time of year when you are consumed by the panic to get body beautiful and beach ready in time for the holiday season. But Claudine Davies, owner and founder of Biondi Couture, believes that looking good on the beach is all about finding the right bikini that is the perfect fit…

Top London beachwear boutique Biondi Couture is where you’ll find all your holiday essentials and is a firm  favourite with Kate and Pippa, and many other celebrities.

Buying a bikini is not always an easy task, so Claudine has shared her top tips.

What is the philosophy behind the store?

Biondi stocks an amazing selection of designer swimwear, beachwear and accessories in the UK, providing everything for the perfect holiday wardrobe. I am committed to ensuring my clients look and feel great in their swimwear, and travel around the world to find new and exciting products. I always say wearing a swimsuit is the most naked a woman ever is in public, so it makes sense to invest in looking good. It is Biondi’s aim to source styles that compliment and inspire confidence as well as look fantastic.

What are your top tips for swimwear shopping?

  • Choose a shop like Biondi with knowledgeable and helpful staff. Don’t be scared to ask for advice and try on as many shapes as possible.
  • Always select fit over fashion. You will not look good if the suit does not fit properly.
  • Don’t be afraid to invest in a well-made bikini as they will often fit you better.
  • Resist covering up your worst bits in fabric – this will accentuate them and make them look bigger.
  • For those who really struggle with their shape, choose a shop that sells separates or choose a bespoke bikini as this is made to measure to fit your body exactly.

So we’ve found a bikini that fits well, but how else can we boost our beach confidence?

Most importantly make sure you’ve found a swimsuit or bikini that you feel happy in and then get a fake tan, wax or shave and make sure you have a nice manicure and pedicure. If you feel confident you will look great!

What are the bestsellers for Summer 2013 at Biondi?

We’ve got a gorgeous range of Vix as favoured by Kate – see the Vix giveaway for a taster!

We’ve also spotted lots of other celebrities wearing Vix bikinis…

Yes, the Vix Bia tube bikini in any colour or print is a must-have. This classic Vix bikini is cut to perfection – making it popular with lots of celebrities. Kelly Brook, Coleen Rooney, Denise Richards, Kim Kardashian and Abbey Clancy have all been seen wearing it!

With many thanks to Claudine for sharing her incredibly helpful tips. One can take a look at the magnificent selection of swimwear at Biondi here and find out more about their bespoke service here (A very exciting new website will be launched on May 20th).

I've been hitting the gym and working on a healthier body image to prepare for my wedding (and life!), especially after my fiance's young niece asked me if I was going to have a baby soon because my tummy is HUGE. I was mortified. Talk about motivation though! I haven't worn a bikini in years and am determined to prance out onto that beach as the fit, confident woman I used to be! WOOT WOOT!

    A few blocks away from my street there is a quarry that has filled in with rain water over the years. In the summer, the water is always warm, and always Caribbean blue even though we're so far away from the south. I'd love to wear the Vix bikini there.

    Also, two years ago I had to move away from my best friend. This summer, I'm flying out to go see her for a week, and she lives 30 minutes away from the beach, so I'd also love to wear it there.

    My dream destination would be Hawaii, because the last time I went there it was the most beautiful vacation I've ever had, and I'd love to have that experience again.

    Telling my cousin in Denver Colorado about Prince Harry being in Colorado. She didn't have a clue so I told her about the Veterans game he will be going to in Colorado Springs. She said it just so happens her brother will be in Colorado Springs that weekend. So she thought she would maybe try to take her son and get me a picture. Ha this is all good fun but, a worthy cause for our American and British Veteran's.
