Summer Swimwear

As someone who seriously loves her food, I can’t say I look forward to bathing suit season all that much… until this year.

This year, I decided that I could either stress myself out worrying about how I looked, or what others thought of me, or I could just… not. Accept my un-photoshopped, ultimately healthy body and just have a great time, ignoring gross societal pressure (I’m looking at you, Protein World) to be a ‘better’ version of myself.

The team behind George at Asda also did some research into global swimwear trends, and found that most women globally (like me) find advertising of swimwear misrepresents the average female. It really does.

Because ultimately, what I really want from a swimsuit is for it to be practical – and if it looks cute, that’s a bonus too.

Which is why I’m boycotting bikinis – getting the right size for both top and bottom is a pain in the backside, and the fact that they usually cost more, despite being less material, irritates the hell out of me.

Luckily, the lovely team at George sent me over a few adorable one pieces, which are all super cute – and very flattering, too.

I was sent the swimsuits for purposes of review - all opinions my own.
  • I love these 2. I always wear bikini but I was really thinking of getting a 1 piece this year. Your choices are amazing and very classy! love it!

    oh these are gorgeous. I love the flower one. It makes me think of hawaii!

  • I love love love swimwear, especially as I used to live in warm countries and where beaches were a quick drive away! I also lived in Bournemouth for a year so when I lived in London, my bikinis, tankinis, bandeaus were kept in their own drawers for holiday purposes. But these days though, I feel like the one-piece has made a fantastic comeback! I can’t wait to shop!
