Holiday Antics with Swimwear365

17 July 2013

Before jetting off on holiday to Tenerife three weeks ago, I was able to pick a bikini of my choice from Swimwear365's website and I really was spoilt for choice! After a lot of umming and arring I went for this pretty black floral bandeau bikini number from Marie Claire, which retails for £38 and can be bought on Swimwear365's site here.

For holiday tanning I prefer to pack bandeau bikinis, rather than triangle ones, and I also find that they are better for a smaller busts like mine. I often have trouble finding an underwired bikini that is wide enough (36inches) but also has small enough cups, so bikini shopping for me is pretty much a nightmare! Oh to be genetically gifted in the bust area, my life would be a hell of a lot easier, but you have to work with what you've got; or lack of to be precise.

So, here is how I styled my Swimwear365 Marie Claire Bikini for a day out to Siam Water park in Tenerife, which is actually where they record some of the dates for the Saturday night dating show 'Take Me Out' - YES, Isle of Fernandos is Tenerife!

Now for the quality and endurance test: The rides at Siam Park were pretty intense and I had a few moments where I thought I was going to fly off the rubber rings, but they were so much fun - even if I did end up a bit battered and bruised!

My previous experiences of wearing the wrong bikini to a water park abroad has ended up with either an unintentional nipple slip or getting off a slide wearing a thong, rather than the bikini briefs I was wearing to begin with #nightmare. So, I was 100% impressed with the Marie Claire Floral Bandeau bikini, as the top and bottoms stayed put for the whole day...yay :)

Below are some snaps from Siam Water Park and the intimidating slides...

As you can see behind me in the final shot there was a 'MASSIVE' water slide that drops nearly vertical and you are taken through a tube that is surrounded in a water pool infested with swimming sharks - a bit like the infamous slide in Dubai - yet I was too chicken to do this one!

Overall, on holiday I probably wore this bikini the most - I think I took 5 and only used 4 - and I have to say that it gets a big thumbs up for fit, quality and for staying put and keeping all the right places covered. Thank you Swimwear365!
