just keep swimming, just keep swimming..

As you'll all no doubt be aware, I've recently been bemoaning my lack of any decent swimwear. I swim a lot, which has resulted in my once-decent trusty old swimsuit becoming all stretched and mis-shapen, as well as the fact that I've lost a few dress sizes over the past few months.

Never fear though, there will be no more moaning from me. (Well, no more swimsuit-related moaning anyway.) Those lovely folks at Simply Beach, experts in swimwear and womens' underwear, have come to my rescue by offering me a new suit to review.

Of course, I didn't have to think twice before plumping for this Red or Dead beauty. I ordered it and within two days it was with me, which I was really impressed with. All packed up in a cute little waterproof bag, which comes in handy when carrying my damp swimsuit home again.

I love the colours; particularly the bright orange piping and panels. More importantly for someone who swims one hundred lengths per day, the fit is perfect and straps stay in place. Although it isn't padded, the top section is lined and I feel fully supported, which is where I've had swimsuits fail in the past.

I love that it's a quirky print (obviously) but that with that the Red or Dead suit is also functional, as that's where I find so many of the high street stores fall down. You can either have a cute print on a bikini (never going to happen!) or a swimsuit with so many sections cut out of it that it looks more like some kind of weird bondage gear, or you get a bore-tastic black swimsuit with one sad little go-faster stripe, if you're lucky.

Simply Beach have given me the best of both worlds with this Red or Dead Fly By swimsuit. I really love it and would recommend their service and site to anyone!

  6. That is the best swimming costume I have EVER seen. I often think they get forgotten in favour of inpractical bikinis. It's nice to know someone does gorgeous swimwear you can actually swim in!

  10. This is lovely. I don't know why practicality and prettiness can't go hand in hand more often. I went for pretty with my last suit - I ended up with twisted cups after ten minutes in the pool.
    Very impressed that you do 100 lengths a day!
