A decent swimsuit is something I’ve been after a while!

I have my perpetual day dreams that one day I’m going to be whisked off to drink Champagne in a hot tub on a yacht and I really should be prepared with a wardrobe of glamorous and flattering swimwear to see me through the trip. So far it’s yet to happen, but I think my time is definitely due.


It might not seem worth spending out a lot of money on something you wear only occasionally, but really it’s worth getting something that’s going to be flattering, not go see through or fall apart, as walking around almost naked isn’t the time you want a wardrobe malfunction!

So, today I have a very cool giveaway for you, and then next week I’ll be back to bore you with all the things I’ve been up to while I’ve been taking a break, or maybe not, because for all I know all I’ve done is sit around in my pyjamas. Like every other day.

Vintage inspired swimwear is a little easier to find than it used to be, but still a huge number of high street brands get it wrong and go for bikini bottoms that are cut too low, or too thin straps on tops, or slightly too high legs. So, swimwear is one of the things that it’s still far easier to find a flattering vintage style suit from a specialist retailer.

Bettylicious are a long time sponsor of mine and one of the biggest UK stockists of that gorgeous retro Esther Williams swimwear, and today she’s generously offered to giveaway the swimsuit or bikini of your choice to one lucky winner!

The selection on the Bettylicious site is pretty extensive, with 20 styles of 50s style swimsuit and 7 retro bikinis to chose from so there should be the ideal style for everyone !
