Get Holiday Ready With UK Swimwear

In the past, my pre-children holidays were filled with relaxing by the pool or beach as we lazed about enjoying the summer sun without a care in the world. I never really gave too much thought to swimwear for these holidays; I was happy enough with how I looked on the whole. When my first little boy arrived I must admit I became really self-conscious about my appearance. I was finding it really hard to shift the baby weight, my boobs had grown and I just didn't really feel like me anymore. We actually haven't really had any holidays since the children arrived that would require any holiday swimwear but this year we've booked (along with my brother's family) a camping trip to Cornwall on a bit of a fancy campsite which is right on the beach and also has an indoor and outdoor swimming pool! And so when UK Swimwear got in touch to see if we would like to try one of their pieces, it came at just the right moment.

UK Swimwear has a large array of absolutely stunning swimwear items including bikinis, swimsuits and tankinis as well as a wonderful selection of accessories too. I spent a long time browsing the site. I really liked how they feature a range of shaping as well as underwired swimwear to encourage confidence and enhance one's figure. I was particularly drawn to both the boho chic ranges and the floral ones, they were so pretty! 

After looking at the site for a long time, I had a bit of a realisation. I'd spent years being negative about my own post-baby body yet I actively encourage body confidence on the blog, on social media as well as to my friends. Women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes whether they are slim, curvy, tall or short. Each woman is unique in her own way and that should be celebrated. I truely believe that, yet for many years I hadn't extended this belief to myself. And so with that in mind, I decided there was one thing for it, I'd opt for one of the floral pieces I'd been coveting (but worried might draw attention to me) and in a bikini style too! 

The piece I chose was the Anita Rosa Faia Aurora underwired bikini. What I loved about this piece was the stunning floral design. The bikini top has a unique crossover design on the bust with a gathered cup. The straps are adjustable and it's also underwired for extra support. The bikini briefs feature the same beautiful design.

To compliment the bikini, I chose the Pia Rossini San Remo Sarong in red for those times when I'm sat around the pool, hopefully enjoying some good weather! This is a fabulous item, it's adjustable, versatile and  lightweight and looks beautiful teamed up with the bikini. 

I'm so pleased with the items from UK Swimwear, they are the loveliest swimwear items I've ever owned. I can't wait for our holiday now and promise I will try to practice what I preach and show myself a bit of kindness!
