Nina Agdal's top tips on buying bikinis

Nina Agdal loves wearing really bright bikinis.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl is a brand ambassador for beachwear brand OP. Having spent a large part of her modelling career in swimwear, Nina definitely knows what she likes best.

“OP is bringing in a lot of different styles this season,” Nina told Modelinia. “There are a lot of bright, tropical prints and a lot of neon colours, so it’s very playful and carefree; it reminds me a lot of being in California and having fun on the beach. I also really love wearing bright, super colourful swimsuits at the beach because they help bring out your tan, which I like.”

The Danish model appeared on the 50th Anniversary cover of the celebrated magazine alongside Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge. The 22-year-old has also modelled for Victoria’s Secret, and she had some top tips for anyone who wants to take a good picture in their swimwear when they hit the beach this summer.

“It’s all about practising in the mirror. Everyone is different and everyone’s bodies are different, so it’s important to figure out what works best for you,” she explained to the website. “If you want to cover up your stomach a little bit, you can cross your arms around your waist, or try posing at an angle with a friend.”

Nina’s final tip is the most important one; do whatever you need to do to feel good about yourself and that will be reflected in the shot.

“If you do have to take a photo but aren’t completely comfortable with your body, you can always throw on a cute top or a cover-up. It’s about finding that confidence though and being happy in your own skin,” she said.
