Swimwear Review – Mirage 0

No I am not seeing things…Mirage Tutti Fruiti is the most beautiful swimwear set and my favourite to date.

I have already worn it out to a spa day with the girls and got a lot of compliments which totally made my day. It is so suited for me because it is fuss free in comparison to a swim suit (meaning no stripping to go for a wee which always feels odd to me in public toilets!) and also covers that dreaded Mum Tum. I know I harp on about this but we all have our horrid areas and the tummy is mine. I know you don’t have to be a Mum to not like your Tum, but with this it doesn’t matter either way, it covers the lot.

Mirage Tutti Fruiti is a swim wear design influenced by the 80′s graffiti print and consists of pinks and corals in colour with striking black floral design over the top. When I first studied it I felt it had the influence of Japan in it, with the Orchid flower design and sunset colours and it fitted into the spa scene smoothly.

This is not me (sadly) but is exactly how I feel in this swimwear!


The ‘Freya Girl’ is a ‘Real Woman’ 0

As if we need another complaint about female body image in the media.

Today I came across two articles in particular which have again got me thinking about that ugly term ‘Real Women’.

The Daily Mail Online posted an article about Kelly’s lovely beach bod and I was dismayed by the sheer amount of negative comments by readers which slate her beneath The Mail’s complimentary article.

Outlet Swimwear Review: Freya Zodiac, Bamboo Island and Mystic Bikinis 2

Never to be put off by a little bit of cloud down by my local beach Sandbanks in Dorset, I ventured to take some pictures of some of my favourite Freya bikinis of times gone by –  the ‘Zodiac’, ‘Bamboo Island’ and ‘Mystic’ styles.

All of which have been released for a year or more and are firm favourites. Despite most not being currently sold (unless you are lucky to come across them online or an store) they are similar to many bikini styles and shapes that are available in current and upcoming collections.
