Mixing It Up
I was really excited when Protest announced their “mix and match” bikini promotion. If you are new to Protest clothing you really have to go check them out. Protest bikinis are feminine, unique and very flattering. With the mix and match you can create a different look for every day on your holiday by swapping around the tops and the bottoms. The pretty finishes and clever edging enables you to make your own statement on the beach and absolutely guarantees your individuality. The “mixer” facility on the website is fun too and you can keep clicking and changing until you find your perfect combination.
To coincide with the launch of the mix and match Protest ran a promotion with Cooler Mag and asked me to model some of their bikinis. I must admit I was slightly nervous to begin with as I have always been very shy about my body and have only ever done a bikini shoot once before. I am not super skinny either and because female surfers are known for having bigger arms through paddling, I was a bit worried how the photos would turn out. Luckily working with photographer Lizzie Churchill I forgot about being body conscious and instead had a really relaxed day shooting some beautiful bikinis.
