It finally feels like summer is here! Ok, it might not exactly be tropical, but anything over 18c feels warm in the UK. I think I can confidently pack the big jumpers away and get my feet sandal ready. We might even be able to get the paddling pool out soon! When it comes to swimwear (ok, I won’t actually be swimming in the paddling pool) to wear closer to home, I prefer something that provides more cover than my typical holiday beachwear. Cue my new shorts and vest set from Calypsa!
I know how difficult it can be to find functional swimwear that fits just right, feels comfortable and looks great. So, when Calypsa invited me to choose a set from their website I was thrilled to see so many options in different colours and patterns. I’m not one of those people who can buy a bikini set off the peg because the tops are always too small or bottoms too big. We are all different shapes and sizes so mixing and matching tops and bottoms is the only way to ensure a great fit. This Calypsa swim vest and shorts set fits me perfectly and provides enough coverage while keeping me cool.
The vest has inner support so I feel comfortable while my bust stays where it’s meant to be! The gathering at the sides is a really nice detail too. The shorts are available in different lengths – I chose the 7″ option because I’m not very leg confident. With this longer length I’d feel happy wearing these to go shopping or out for a walk. For size reference I’m wearing a medium in both. The waistband on the shorts is quite roomy but the drawstring keeps them firmly in place. I want to book a holiday now so I can wear them abroad!
