OOTD: ABY Beach Edition

Before I gulped down everything in sight, I managed to snap a few pictures where I looked closest to svelte in my favourite swimsuits (from my closet) this season.

I am one of those people who can’t swim but packs about 7 different swimsuits for a one week holiday. I am seriously sceptical about large bodies water (and the secrets & creatures they hold) and will not go in further than shoulder level. And even then, I have outdone myself. Travelling by sea is not even an option. Mathew tries his hardest to goad me in every time but as soon as I feel the sea bed getting further and further, I’m outta there! My comfort zone is where the water hits the sand. Hahaha!

Even so, I enjoy beaches more than anything else. It’s the perfect place to read, people watch and just relax really.

Pink always catches my eye and this swimsuit did. It is my favourite one piece by far. It has a zip in the front which can be styled up or down and of course I tried both. I’m a double D cup so and I wear size Small clothing so my chest area is slightly bigger than my hips. I can never find the perfect fit in one piece swimwear. Who else has this problem???Β  I tend to look for swimwear that offer different bra sizes which is rare. The zip on this baby could barely stay up :/ You can see watermarks right up to my chest area so I went for it that day πŸ˜‰

By day two in Alicante, I was feeling the effect of the sun on my melanin. It is always so cold in England that sometimes even dark skin will paler than normal.Β Is this true or myth? I was looking tanned for the gods. Yasss!

This Moontide Rainbow Swimsuit is my go to swimsuit. I take it with me every time I pack for a vacation. I feel sexy yet comfy in it.

This Asos mesh swimsuit comes in a wide range of cups. They are from DD-G which is quite handy. So I had to grab one immediately. When in doubt, wear black πŸ˜‰

    I frequently hit up Asos too for swimsuits because they accommodate larger busts, although mine are smaller than yours 😜.
    My favorite pic is the pink one. I bet you had all the tongues wagging in that one lol
    And Alicante seems to be a popular spot for British vacationers.
    Hmmm 😌😌
