The Perfect Swimming Costume

I recently bought a magazine (which shall remain nameless but it had a lovely photo of Kylie on the front) and it being the June issue it was naturally devoted to beachwear and holidays. Obviously all these pictures of nice sunny places made me very jealous, but as I leafed through pages and pages of swimwear my only thought was 'I don't actually like any of this'.

Call me old fashioned but I prefer slightly more coverage than the average bikini (for one thing I need the support!) so I went looking for my idea of the perfect beachwear, and I was quite pleasantly surprised with how much I found which I loved. Here is what I would love to be wearing on my (non existant) beach holiday!

we can be old fashioned together, I cant be doing with skimpy bits of string.

I'm loving 50's style beachwear. They covered and looked so gorgeous. I've been looking for one for ages.

Oh, oh, oh! How gorgeous! I love the spotty bikini and the 50s style costume. The floral dress and the fan are gorgeous too... actually, I want it all! And a holiday to wear it on, please! :)

I find the June/July editions of magazines SO boring because all they are is pictures of swimsuits! These are really nice ones - much classier and cuter...

I can't wear a bikini! I just feel kind of naked. I don't know how other girls manage!

Love the vintagey polka dot one you picked :)
