Boom Boom Bikini at home

THROW your saggy bikini bottoms away and get into a Boom Boom Bikini, says Christina Henline.

The 27-year-old former Noosa girl said the new summer/fall line brings a bit of Hawaiian flavour to Australia.

Boom Boom Bikini originated in the tropical islands but has since made a home for itself on the Coast in the past year with two stores stocking the bikinis - Fred and Ginger clothing boutique at Peregian and Urban Elements at Noosa Junction.

Christina, who loves swimwear and surfing, described Boom Boom Bikini designs as bright, fun, colourful and unique.

She said unlike other swimwear lines that focus on how they look not how well they stay on in the water, Boom Boom's were designed with surfing in mind.

"Girls want to be able to look great on the beach and know their bikinis are going to stay on even after wiping out on a wave," she said.

When the talented beauty is not surfing, hanging out at the beach or designing bikinis she can be found with her nose in the books studying to become a primary school teacher at Griffith University on the Gold Coast.

Christina already has a degree in business and communication from the University of the Sunshine Coast which helps her run the Australian side of the swimwear business.

But although she said she loved clothes design she also thoroughly enjoyed teaching and believed she could juggle the two careers.

"It's good to be busy," she said with a laugh.

Boom Boom Bikini is currently sponsoring the Miss Noosa Reef Beach Babe 2012 competition being held at The Reef Hotel Noosa.

Competition dates are: heat 2 on Friday at 10.30pm, heat 3 on January 20, heat 4 on January 27 and the grand final on February 3.
