I have a new bikini that's in a psychedelic pink paisley. I'd been hunting for ages for the perfect one, and a chance conversation led me to start looking on Ebay. That's where I tracked down this new with tags bikini by Pistol Panties, a fancy brand I've been admiring from afar. The brand specialises in flattering, feminine and glamorous swimwear, but as their new bikinis retail for £139, I hadn't made a purchase. I'm delighted that this one off Ebay cost me under a tenner, including postage.
The thing is, I've accidentally ordered two of them. I didn't know if my bid for this one would be successful so I ordered another one, identical in style but with a polkadot print instead of the paisley. Oops! To add to the bikini-rama, the other seller has accidentally sent me the wrong style of bikini, and so a third bikini was sent through the post. I thought that the second bikini was one of the most unflattering styles I've ever tried, but the third was the right size bottom and wrong size top, which I couldn't even get on. Can you believe that there's now a fourth bikini being sent out?! I find 90% of bikinis unflattering, does anyone else have as much trouble with them as I do? I swear I look better naked than I do in a bikini.
The reason for the bikini purchase is that I'm off to Pembrokeshire in West Wales for an overdue holiday. Those of you in the know about the Welsh climate may ask why I might need a new bikini for West Wales? Let me assure you that I will be swimming only in pools of the indoor, heated variety. The Irish Sea will not be warm. Although at the time of publishing this, I've managed to get a small burn on my lower leg, so I won't be swimming quite as much as planned anyway!
I have so many exciting adventures to share with you in my upcoming blog posts - bear with me on this short break and I look forward to catching up with you all on my return. Have a super week all!
Have you bought any new swimwear or had any bikini woes so far this year?
