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 ?

He does still have his bouncy locks and plays at local pubs occassionally. He is quite a 'grounded' rock star, mixes with locals smile

Have you tried Sports Direct??
I bought my daughter 2 from there last week-halter neck, skirted & 50`s style!!.
Paid £27 for both of them!!

*short, singy. Pfft, phone.

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

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

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

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

Bravissimo have one here

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

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!

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.

the page

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

This is lovely but not quite 50s style

They do it in other colours too.

BustleInYourHedgerow Thu 01-May-14 12:52:14

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

BustleInYourHedgerow Thu 01-May-14 12:51:16

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...

BuzzardBird Thu 01-May-14 10:24:56

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.

BuzzardBird Thu 01-May-14 10:23:33

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

BuzzardBird Thu 01-May-14 10:22:30

the best!

BuzzardBird Thu 01-May-14 10:21:19

another 50's[

BuzzardBird Thu 01-May-14 10:20:13
