Retro Swimsuits Rock

Oh how I loved my Agent Provocateur bikini…it was a pre-bebe purchase that make me feel like a goddess. But now 2 years after bebe arrived the bikini has not been touched for said amount of time. I’ve checked out the ebay re-sell price and it’s good, but I still like to look at it and remember those times. So the beach is beckoning and I figure I can no longer opt for the Victorian look I’ve recently adopted (pretty much covered head to toe) as my daughter is giving me odd looks.

I invested a decent google session looking for the one…I know that an actual bikini is out…I really can’t go there at the moment…and feel that for a chic beach look a tasty all-in-one is the way to go. I had to get past the ‘sports’ ones (ick), the frumpy ones, the ones with hideous patterns and find ones that would enhance and flatter. I’m a huge fan of Sea Folly the Australian brand but it was my ultimate discovery of a website called For Luna, selling retro style swimsuits. It was love at first sight between me and the navy blue retro swimsuit.

A small parcel arrived just a few days later and inside was a pretty pouch containing my new swimsuit. And quite simply, I’ve not stopped talking about it. I love it. I never thought I could love a swimsuit. I thought it might be just too retro, too cool for the local swimming pool but no, quite simply it rocks in a way the Agent Provocateur bikini does. Yup, it makes me feel like a goddess, a post-bebe beach goddess, no mean feat. It enhances and it flatters…and it gets it’s first outing in public this weekend sur la plage. Watch out Brighton here I come.
