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.
Printed Swimsuit and Tropical Bandeau
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.
