friday favourites 015 {and giveaway}..

So another week rolls by and today all I'm wishing for is new swimwear. Since I spend most of my evenings in the pool, I think it's high time for a new one. Particularly as all my recent swimming seems have resulting in my shrinking my way out of my older costumes. I'm never going to be a bikini body. However, although I want to something practival enough to swim 100 lengths per day in, I don't think functional needs to be boring. I headed on over to the Simply Beach website to have a look and have narrowed it down to my favourites:
001: Seafolly Lola Rose swimsuit, £89
002: Red or Dead Fly By swimsuit, £60
003: Jets Classique Halter swimsuit, £140
These three costumes would fit the bill very nicely indeed - I particularly like the Red or Dead one.

Simply Beach don't just offer swimwear. Oh no. They also sell designer lingerie  - if you haven't visited them already, you should! They have been nice enough to offer me a £50 gift card for their website to giveaway. If  you'd like to be in with a chance of winning, here's how:

  1. those swimming costumes are amazing! i adore the first one but i'd just wish it had straps! i'll enter your giveaway even though it's utterly greedy since i won the last one :D xxx

  2. That is my most wanted by far! Red leopard print is right up my street :]

    Enter me please
    I'll tweet as well xx

  3. I am one of those women who doesn't have decent, nice, pretty underwear. It's like I'm not normal sometimes.

    So. If I was to win I think this would mean I would have that problem covered.

    But in actual fact there are so many items on the website that I would like. I just spent half an hour going through the website going "Ooh that, and that, and that, and I'd like that. Oh yeah and that."

  4. This is fantastic! I find it really hard to find cute retro inspired swimsuits. If I won I'd probably pick the Red or Dead Fly By one which you've featured, I like how it manages to look retro yet quite sporty with the panels. Also LOVE their icecream print one, shame it's strapless!

    1. I totally agree - the ice cream one caught my eye, but I'd be too worried to swim in a strapless number.

  5. Oh my goodness, I'm actually in love! This one is my fave I think:

    I love the retro feel! Going to keep browsing through though, they have some wonderful stuff. Enter me please :) Fingers crossed! I also tweeted. xxx

  6. So many to choose from, but my winner is the 'Jets Twilight Infinity Bandeau Bikini - Persimmon', the colours and style are perfect, just wish I had that body to match.

    I've tweeted the details @madders83.
