A Basic Black Bikini Update

Even I think this underwired number makes my boobs look good. Without that flattering bit of wire they’re way more average, but who isn’t up for a helping hand in the cleavage department?!

I’d seen this style milling around on Instagram and did my usual ‘must find on eBay’ search. It was actually pretty easy to get hold of, the quality wasn’t bad and fit wise it was the usual (normal-ish size top, definitelyyyy size up on the bottoms – I’m at least a M/L when ordering off eBay). And you know what the best thing about this bikini set was? Amaaazing for tan lines! I wore it on the first day to get things going and ended up with the tiniest of white bits. Woo.


Yup, a little bit of summer sadness has hit post holiday. I’m not compleeetely down in the dumps though – normally summer ending makes me really miserable, but this year I am partly looking forward to all things A/W. There’s so many nice events to stick in the diary! I’ll also freely admit that even the TV schedule vastly improving at this time of year makes me happy. I’m easily pleased with Bake Off, a hot chocolate and some cosy autumn pyjamas.

I’ve got a couple of last summer updates to share over the next week or so, sharing a few other eBay bikini/swimsuit favourites with you. I’ve had a lot of questions about direct links, so it’s just easier to stick them all in one place. Hopefully some of you have holidays still booked in, or even want to stock up for next year – I know I’ll be keeping some of this year’s swimwear and updating with a few from eBay next year. ebay black bikiniBelow I’ve got the direct link to this bikini, as well as some favourite all black styles… I’m loving the super strappy one! Even though I’ve got more into wearing colour over the summer, I still use black as my comfort blanket, and will always end up with at least one black bikini on holiday. Even though your whole bod’ is on show, black is still slimming right?! I hope so – on this year’s holiday I ate so much feta cheese that any sort of ab definition had disappeared within a day of landing in Kefalonia!
