Simply Beach asked if I'd like to review their service and try out a bikini so I jumped at the chance. Yes we had a little bit of a heatwave and I know we are nearly in winter... but I am planning a winter sun getaway! The last couple of winters have been rather depressing, so sun, sea and sand are going to be the perfect remedy. I still haven't booked flights, but hopefully I'll get somewhere sunny, even if it's ever so slightly close to home than Brazil.
When browsing the Simply Beach website, I was pretty impressed with the choice. I tend to like quite feminine styles, but there are plenty of sporty, glamorous and practical styles to choose from too. After perusing for some time (and getting my boyfriend's opinion) I settled on a red polka dot, ruffle trim bikini by Animal.
I couldn't believe I would get the chance to try it out in October but I did! The first weekend of this month was gloriously sunny so I gave it a test run sunbathing in Regent's Park. The quality is great, but I did underestimate the size of my boobs slightly... could have done with a size bigger on the top. If choosing again, I think I would go for something with a cup size instead. Delivery was super speedy and you can get a bikini delivered for just £1.99 which is a fab bargain.
There is also swimwear available for men so if you're can't stand the sight of your man's Speedos or perhaps want him to ditch the board shorts, you can take matters into your own hand with all sorts of men's swim styles.
Here are a few more of my top picks from the website...
P.S. the yellow towel in the photos was a free gift with purchase from Lacoste fragrances. I love it, it's huge and I'm sure I can't get lose it on the beach it's practically neon!
