Am looking for a new bikini...

The bra should make the most out of my b cups.
The bottom shouldn't be a thong, that is all.

Have access to all shops here so fire away :-)

Christ emperor. Try google.

You have no weird cup size needs. You just want a bikini, very lazy post !

I ordered a load few bikinis last week from 'Swimwear365'. They had sent me a promo code for 15% off first order.

I was really impressed with the selection they had. Huge try on session last night which was not a pretty sight grin but decided to go with the Lascana Navy Spot - halter neck to even out my pear shape, and fab bottoms that have a wide waistband which eliminates any muffin top.

I would link, but I'm a total ludite so can't blush

Would really recommend the site though. Good luck!

What's wring with you Ladymountbatten?? If you don't like it don't post.

For the other two - thanks for the tips! I bought my last bikini in Gap, a few years ago, so looking for inspiration on where to look. I also checked Debehams website just now.

Looks like its going to be complicated, too much stuff out there.

First Ever Link Attempt

Am ridiculously pleased that my link worked! Please click on it - you can absolutely hate the bikini, I just want my link to be clicked on!!

I've bought this in 3 colourways for my holiday. I have a D cup and it holds my norks well, and the bottoms are well fitting too.

Fivefold - thanks for the link!

My old bikini has that shape and it is flattering.

And a search on that site found me your bikini's cousin :-)which is exactly what I am looking for

Is the quality good?

I clicked, nice bikini.

Landofsoapandglory - i was going to add in my OP that I like neutral colours or black though.. But I like your style :-) that shape though looks like it encloses the boob and I am looking for a push up ;-) so I would say maybe not on the basis of the shape.

fivefoottwowitheyesofblue Mon 22-Apr-13 23:12:40

Yes, the quality is lovely. My last few bikinis have been from Next and M&S and this one is significantly better - thicker, bottoms are fully lined and it just looks better all round.

My code for 15% off was S7JP. I don't know if it is an indivual code but may be worth a go.

I wish I never opened this thread. I am not going on holiday this year and having looked at bikini's I really want to! hmm
The one you linked to, FiveFoot, is lovely. Looks like it would be very flattering too. Am a little envious wink

fivefoottwowitheyesofblue Tue 23-Apr-13 07:27:59

Thanks Letme. I don't look like she does in it though envy

I'm pretty flat chested, and find that push-up/padded bikinis actually make it look worse. Triangle bikinis are the way to go for me, and have had surprisingly good success in Primark and Tesco (and recently in the US, Old Navy). This was despite trying on much more expensive ones in a variety of shapes and colours.

Also, given that all my swimming cozies get stained with sun cream and get a bobbly bum from sitting on rough swimming pool edges, the cheaper the better IMO.

fivefoot off at a tangent here, but would you WANT to look like the model does in that bikini?! shock IMO she looks anorexic and photoshopped to the point of deformity!

fivefoottwowitheyesofblue Tue 23-Apr-13 08:00:32

True! It's just that I am soooo wobbly - not fat just wobbly.
