I love the Esther Williams ones but can't really justify the price. I like the halterneck style ones . Any decent ones around this season pls ?

I hope this works

I think this is beautiful, there are some fabulous swimsuits on Etsy.

The last one didn't work, it should have been red. For this price you could have a few!

I apologise, a lot of those have come through as the same costume, there are loads of 50's inspired swimsuits on their site though...even 2 pieces.

Primal, it's lovely thanks but out of my budget, sorry should have been clearer on that!

Looking to spend about 30 at most I think.

Tersa - thanks, they look fab but I wonder would I get stung for customs on those ?

Blizzard, I like the look of the red one maybe bit I'd prefer a plainer pattern so I can um, hide in the corner somewhere...

And don't apologise, thanks for posting the links for me ��

This is lovely but not quite 50s style

They do it in other colours too.

No Bustle, there is a plain red one on page 2 of their site. I thought I had posted it but it didn't work.

this one

I was in Next yesterday and they had some lovely ones. I'd also try TK Maxx on line or in store as they had a good selection last week.

I have the red halter neck Esther Williams one and it was worth every cent. I wore it all last summer and it still looks as good as new. So, if there is any chance you can stretch to it, I highly recommend!

The Kelly Brook range for New Look are a bit '50s and well priced.

Bravissimo have one here

If you wear bra-size swimwear, look for the Panache Veronica or Tallulah on eBay. I think they start at a D or DD.

Buzz thanks that's perfect! I'll get it smile Zee, unfortunately I just don't get a chance to swim that much, I've been three times this year so I don't think it's worth it. Maybe if I get a bit of spare cash.

Thanks everyone for your help. smile

Ooo, I helped! <proud>. Just noticed your name, I see rp a lot around here smile

Ooh rp nd his bouncy locks. I often see one of the short stingy boys from westlife. That's not quite the same, is it? I need to move grin
