Indy Bikini in Holly Hyde c/o Triangl Swimwear, Boohoo Fedora, Topshop Sunglasses, Customised Tie Dye Tee c/o Cordelia Hearts, Leopard Slip Ons c/o Daniel Footwear
My absolute most favourite way to get into the summer mind frame is to go out and buy a brand new bikini! Even if I'm not going abroad, it's always nice to prance around in the garden attempting to get a bit of colour (especially when I have to stand next to this travelling babe who is topping up her Gambian tan in Morocco as we speak!)
Because of this yearly ritual, I don't traditionally spend a lot of money on decent swimwear but as my shopping/financial habits have changed dramatically this year it made sense to invest in something worth the while. Luckily, I didn't need to spend a penny thanks to the incredible people at Triangl and I got the best quality bikini going, in a style and pattern that is certain to see me through a good few seasons of swimming and tanning even with my ever changing body shape! The neoprene material is so comfy and doesn't do that unflattering cling thing most swimwear does when it's wet.
I know loads of people worry about the sizing of Triangl products so I based mine around Naomi's previous Triangl review she did (here) back in January and went for an L for both parts. I am a size 10 trouser size and 8/10 in tops and dresses but having only recently been blessed with boobies I wasn't entirely sure what to go for. I was happy with the sizing as it wasn't too snug but the tie string nature of both parts meant I had the flexibility of it fitting exactly how I wanted it to.
Naomi rightly said in her post that the best thing about us shooting together is the fun and laughter we have and the confidence we give each other to be proud of who we are! and nothing shows it more than agreeing to do skimpy bikini post just 4 months after having a baby, and just another reason why I wear my specially made TSOP tie dye tee with nothing but pride :)
