As you may know, our BIG holiday this year is going to be at Walt Disney World – too excited! With it getting closer and closer, I like to prepare as best as I possibly can with three kids, and start to think about items of clothing we can take.
For us, a holiday is just as much relaxing as it is about having fun. Thankfully, our Disney Resort has 5 pools, and the kids absolutely love swimming. Whilst we will be in the parks a lot, we will also have ‘down time’ and be relaxing by the pool, making the most of the sunshine and the resorts facilities. With that being said, beachwear (or pool wear in this instance) was on my agenda!
UK Swimwear is an online store that is perfect to browse items for the pool or beach. There is a huge array of items, from beach bags, cover ups, kaftans to support swimwear and bikinis. I was amazed to see an online store that offered all of this in one place, and pretty much met the needs of most woman’s shapes and sizes. There was even matching sets, which is especially nice if you want your swimwear to match your cover up!
Over the years, I have owed many a style of bikini – some more comfortable than others! But I really like the bandeau style of bikini, and with a smaller bust, these suit my figure better. This one in particular has a bright trendy pattern across the main bulk of the bikini with a black trim – something I found rather fun and quirky! I also love the zip detail at the front which I feel completes the look. The bikini also comes with a halter strap for extra support which I find helpful.
I have already worn the bikini whilst on a family break to Center Parcs, and found it very comfortable to wear and is one I will be taking to Disney World for sure!
To complete the look, I chose this beautiful white embroidered kaftan. Designed by Aspiga, this is an ethical brand designed in the UK and made in Asia and Africa – even using traditional methods! To wear, it is super light and using the tassel tie at the front, pulls you in at the waist. I love the pop of rich pink vibrancy too. Tassels are still a bit hit for the summer, and I cannot wait to take this on holiday with me – perfect for us Mum’s who are no doubt running after our little ones by the pool!
Overall, I am super impressed with UK swimwear, and the range of items the online store has to offer. The items I chose are true to size and I am really happy with the fit of both. The kaftan in particular is my favourite as it will see me though many beach holidays, and is perfect to throw on when taking a walk after a lazy day by the pool.
What is your go to swimwear piece for your holiday this year? Let me know in the comments!
