I’ve spent hours (literally hours!) browsing the internet trying to find nice and good value swimwear, so here are my top picks, split into swimsuits, swimskirts, and bikinis. I find some of the best features for swimwear are skirted bottoms (covers up bulgey thighs), longline bikini tops (hides back fat), and high waisted bottoms (holds belly in).
So far I’ve invested in the Blue and White Striped High Waist Bikini for only £6 off eBay from a Chinese seller, and also this Longline Pink and Black Polka Dot Bikini, also £6. I’m not sure if they’ll arrive in time for my holiday as I only just discovered them. Also I wasn’t sure about sizing, so I got one in size L and one in XL as Chinese sizes are usually tiny. I also bought today this amazing tropical print longline, high waist bikini from Primark for £11, and there’s lots of (tiny) PR photos (here) showing whats soon to come to Primarks new summer range! I want this, this, and this.
