Let’s face it, swimwear can be pretty darn expensive. I have been victim to oggling over £40-£50 pieces of swimwear and almost taking it to the till before realising I’m not going on holiday this year and £50 is a lot of money for something I’d wear twice a year when I get my “fitness burst”. However, there is a solution.
George at ASDA is probably not your first stop for fashion finds. As a supermarket brand, it is easy to assume that the clothes will be poorly made and terribly unfashionable, however, George is the perfect place to pick up some really cute swimwear this summer. For under £15, you can find the right swimwear for you no matter what your shape and size. As the line goes from a size 6-24, everyone is guaranteed to find something they like and they carry a lot of different styles of swimwear. Here are our top picks from the current online selection.
Everyone needs a bikini that has a fun print, and this Wonderwoman themed two-set is perfect for some candid shots on the beach this summer. The halter-neck tie may not be for everyone, but the strip style of top is flattering and covers the entire bust to save your dignity. Even if you’re not a fan of the top, the star-print bottoms would look brilliant with a plain blue top and for £4 are an absolute steal.
For those who aren’t quite confident enough for a bikini on the beach, this pink polka dot costume gives a glamorous 50’s look. Running from a size 8 to a 24, this costume will flatter any shape and support the larger breasted ladies amongst us. The halter neck tie is removable for those who don’t like the weight around the neck, and the flattering front panel will hide any lumps and bumps you may want to conceal. Not a polka dot fan? Check the website for more costumes in the same style and price but with other prints.
If you are on a really tight budget, this eye-catching zig-zag print separates are only £3 each. The lime green string detail makes this set look much more expensive and the monochrome pattern will look gorgeous against a tan. Although the bandeau style top may not be for everyone, for only a couple of pounds you could buy the top or bottoms and wear mis-matching sets. Why not buy a few different styles and stand out on the beach with a mixed set?
The standard bandeau or triangle bikini sometimes isn’t the most flattering for curvier figures, and moulded cup bikini tops are hard to find on a budget. However, this gorgeous stripe-printed number is very flattering and comes with matching high-waisted bottoms for only £14. The cross-over detail between the bust is flattering and will enhance the cleavage without showing too much off and the extra material on the bikini bottoms will help conceal any problem areas you may have around the stomach. The high-waisted look is very trendy this summer, and George have lots of styles available on the website.
