After a fabulous week by the sea in Brittany I arrived home at the weekend to find Summer had taken its own holiday. Just as we hit the road to drive back from Exeter airport the heavens opened. Oh well, I suppose it was long overdue. I just don’t want Summer to end! I’ll be packing a case and heading off again next week, although only to my mum’s in Cambridgeshire, but it’s forecast to be warmer there than in the North West. I’ll take my beachwear, just in case I get the chance to bask in the sun 😉
Good quality, well-fitting swimwear is a must for feeling confident and looking stylish on the beach or by the pool (or in the garden for that matter!). This Fantasie Ko Phi Phi swimsuit and sarong certainly live up to my high expectations from beachwear. The swimsuit fits perfectly, with adequate bust support thanks to the concealed underwire and tummy control for a sleek contour. It’s available in up to bra size GG and features adjustable straps.
Buying swimwear in your bra size rather than dress size is essential if you’re well endowed. Having the right amount of support improves posture and can make you look slimmer. After years of only wearing bikinis for the beach/pool I’m loving one-pieces lately, they have an old school glamour feel about them.

The sarong is made from lovely soft cotton, and feels great against the skin. I find some cheaper sarongs made from manmade material don’t stay put when knotted. They also don’t feel nice to the touch. This one is definitely my favourite, especially as the soft cotton makes it easy to wear different ways. I wore it tied around my waist, as a halterneck dress, and also crossed over with the corners wrapped around the swimsuit staps. You can effectively turn it into a dress in a mater of seconds..perfect for going from beach to bar!
