How many bikinis/swimsuits is enough?!!

I have recently been trying to declutter my life, including my wardrobe, with the mantra that more is not always better. So I was quite happy with having two pairs of bikinis and a tankini for my holiday - but then I was talking to a friend who said she always takes about 10 pairs or so, so she always has a dry pair spare, etc.

So that made me think - do I need more????

I suppose it depends on your holiday. I use my bikini to swim in, and I never sunbathe because I have fair skin and a desire to avoid the melanoma my mother had removed. So one good quality bikini that dries fast is fine.

I suppose if you were lying about constantly in the sun you might want more from a variation / boredom point of view?

I like to have 4 for a 2 week holiday - usually a couple are favs, but I change at lunchtime for a dry/ fresh one, so 4 is a good number

I've got one full body swimsuit and about 3 bikinis. In my opinion if the weather is warm enough to get in the water it's warm enough to dry yesterday's bikini

I've got 6 bikini but go away for 14 days at a time. Plus an all in one for if we visit a water park.

Hmm, maybe I need just one more...

Blimey. I got excited last year when I had two cossies for the first time in my life.

I took 4 bikinis this year (am still on holiday!) and that was plenty as I rinsed and hung them out to dry overnight
