As summer is in full swing and with my holiday in the sun less than three weeks away it’s now time to start panic buying swimwear.
I have around a dozen bikinis in my arsenal already of course but I’m always tempted to buy a new one or two each year. Yes those itsy bitsy items which I wear for up to 2 weeks out of 52. Usually, take around a dozen on holiday but stick to my two favourites.
Swimwear styles come and go and some have been around forever, from the tiniest micro possible to a bit more coverage high waist style, triangle top, bandeau or underwired. Frills, no frills. The list is endless.
When it comes to bikinis, I prefer to buy them as ‘separates’ as I am small framed, but blessed with fairly big boobs.
This means I need to mix and match the top and bottom. I imagine this is a universal problem for the majority, whichever way around. If you’re a size 6 like me, it’s assumed you have the chest of a nine-year-old. Not always so.
Last summer I wore a one-piece pool-side literally the whole holiday, there wasn’t much to it, blue in colour with cut-away front and halter neck. This summer I find myself still lusting after a swimsuit as opposed to a bikini. Or perhaps I could have both!
I thought I would put together my Top Ten Swimwear Picks and since this is an ‘edit’ type post I’ll stop waffling now and get straight to it. To see more styles, use the navigation arrow to the right.
