We talk bikinis with Bree Warren

We were lucky enough to shoot with New York-based Australian beauty Bree Warren at the stunning Gordons Bay. It was a pleasure to learn more about Bree, her love of travel and surfing, the blog she curates with her boyfriend and her empowering philosophy...

Of all the swimsuits you wore for the shoot, which one do you see yourself wearing on repeat this summer?

The leopard prints! I had actually seen them before I shot for Tigerlily so I was kind of already sold. I love that there are removable cups in the bikini tops and the one piece fits so well.

What do you look for when shopping for a new bikini?

Number one thing has to be fit but I mix up the styles quite a bit. My go-to is a triangle bikini top and tie side bottoms but lately, I’ve been wearing everything. I have some more conservative bikini’s that I surf in and then more skimpy ones for beach days. I mix up the shapes so I don’t get tan lines… I think that’s why I have way too many haha.

Which do you predict will be the best-selling Tigerlily suit of the season?

I’m all about the one pieces at the moment. I never thought I would be saying that but I’ve been converted. The white striped one is hot! Sexy and comfy at the same time.

Tell us your health and wellbeing secrets…

They aren’t really secrets but eating well with lots of fresh vegetables and being in the ocean are what makes me feel the best. Going for a swim at the beach is when I feel healthiest and happiest. I eat A LOT of spinach, broccoli and zucchini… basically addicted. Since living in New York, I have become really conscious of processed salt and sugar. I can see it in my skin and my body when I’ve had too much! If I’m at home I have a green smoothie every day but I’m often on the road for long periods of time so I take homemade cereal and Elle McPherson’s Super Elixir in my bag.

The most important thing though is how you feel. Everything in moderation because you’ve got to live and have fun! When you’re happy and positive you’re going to attract that back to you.

We’ve been following the ‘The Wave Provocateur’ on Instagram… where will your Tigerlily bikini take you next?

I’m on a road trip across America for The Wave Provocateur as we speak! Currently in New Mexico and will be heading to Arizona, Utah, California and Mexican Baja. So my Tigerlily’s are going to be popping up everywhere over the next month or so. x
