Summer beachwear

RELLECIGA 1/2 Cup Bandeau Push-up Molded Foam Padding Bikini Set

Product Details

I mentioned in another beachwear review that you get what you pay for. Well this set is more expensive but far better quality fabric. Its fully lined in briefs and top except for the back strap section, has unwired, padded and slightly moulded supports in the top, and is gently stretchy making it really comfortable.

I love the design except for that awful plastic jewellery halter top – but that can be removed and the top left as strapless or maybe insert some ribbon to create your own straps. Of course that’s just a personal dislike, maybe you love that part? Each to their own…

The back fastening is metal and I think plastic would have been a better choice, given this is going to be worn on hot days ( if we get some this summer!) Its also got some side boning in the top so with the underwire and padding really seems quite secure and flattering to wear. The briefs are lined throughout so no worries about transparency when you get wet, and that extra layer just makes swimwear feel so much better. The sides do have some very small adjustment possible.  I’d ordered this on S for my 14 year old granddaughter – she’s a UK size 8 and it looks fine.

The fabric feels good quality, with some stretch and the lining really makes a difference. Its well finished, the edges are all over-locked,  and there are no lose stitches or seams showing. I think its an excellent quality bikini – I just don’t like those beads 😉 but as that’s personal I’ve not included that in my rating.

Stars: Five, excellent for summer sun

Nergivep Girl’s 3D Digital Printing Dacron Swimwear Cross Braces Beach suit

Product Details

Well, you get what you pay for!

This is an inexpensive suit – its very pretty, comes in 14 attractive designs and has some stretch, but: its very thin, has no gusset, no extra layer to prevent poky nipples, (not everyone wants to expose them on the beach or while swimming) and is very, very small. Bust area says up to 90cm – that’s 35 ins and I’d say that’s an absolute maximum and only if you’re an A or B cup.  Its not really long enough for most adults, and more suited to a child around 10 to 14 years-ish depending on how big they are. To be fair it does say “girls” swimwear, though the images seem to me to be an adult.

Its very pretty, and I love the silky feel but we have the unicorn design, and as the fabric is so thin I’ve a feeling the white parts will go transparent. If it was a bit more generous on size, had a cotton gusset and slightly thicker fabric I’d love it, its got such pretty designs, and is a very attractive and flattering cut with bound edges in a matching black fabric. Its a shame the extras have been skimped on, an extra couple of quid on better fabric would be well spent.

Stars: three, very pretty but some impracticalities.

LILBETTER Lady V-neck Polka Dot Pocket Long Maxi Dress, Boho Casual, Cocktail, Beachwear

ZANZEA Lady V-neck Polka Dot Pocket Long Maxi Dress Boho Casual Cocktail Beachwear

This is a pretty sundress, and surprisingly roomy. so many clothes on amazon are just too small, but I ordered this in XL and its fine for me – a UK 16 but certainly not a 20 as stated!

Its a thin fabric but as a sundress that’s what I want. Its made of a polyester/cotton mix and hangs really well. It doesn’t appear to crease easily – the images are taken straight as it arrived, in a crumpled plastic cover 🙂 so it’s great for holidays when you Do Not want to be ironing. The dress is machine washable but its such a light fabric that on hol you could just rinse it out, hang up overnight and its ready next morning.

It’d make a great beach cover-up too, for when you’ve been sunbathing or swimming and want to tour shops or something without getting changed first. Its a simple design, flattering “v” neck, spaghetti straps that can be adjusted and it flares out to hang really well. the seams are all over-locked and the hems are simply turned up, not a bound over edge.

I’m really pleased with it – just need the sunshine now!

 

Stars: Five, excellent value sundress for summer

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
