Obsession

The thought of swimmer shopping makes me cringe and with Summer soon approaching and no swimsuit I have had to bite the bullet and start looking. I am definitely going for a full piece this year but still want something cute. A problem with a lot of the full pieces is that they have parts cut out or really low backs which is not what I am looking for. I just want something that is cute but I feel comfortable in. My birthday is in December and Mum has offered to buy my new swimmers so I have been able to increase my usual price range that I would allocate for swimmers. Here is some of the swimmers I am considering....



Both swimsuits above are Cozi by Jennifer Hawkins - I think these are both cute options and definitely affordable at approx $90 each.


These two options are from Modcloth and what I like about these is the thicker straps, full back and the extra material over the tummy. Their both approx $90 + $25 postage but I am concerned if they don't fit/don't suit I will have wasted my money. Has anyone seem anything similar to these in Australia? Or alternatively if you have bought swimmers from Modcloth how true to size are they?

Ps - I am trialling formspring on my blog. If you want to ask me anything the link is in the sidebar :-)

  1. Cute choices! I went with a one piece this year too--I got it from Target, and it had a ruched belly which was very nice. :) Bathing suit shopping can be such a nightmare, but I'm sure you'll look adorable in whatever you order. :)

  2. I am supposed to be devoting today to cozzie shopping. Clearly I'm realllllly looking forward to it as its 11 and im still in bed psyching myself up hahaha
    love the red polkadot one! you know a good place to look, etsy (is there anything etsy doesnt do) there are some great swimmers at reasonable prices and at least you can ask the designers about the fit!
    Goodluck!

  3. the modcloth ones look a lot more flaterring. I say go for it, if it doesn't fit I'm sure you can return it!

  4. hi darling! honestly you know i love the pink with white polka dots but with your coloring i think the soft pastel stripes. so sweet. i think the navy with white polka dots are great too. i love how you are going to increase the price range since "mum" is footing the bill! hah!

  5. I like the look of those modcloth ones - very retro. My only advice would be to thoroughly scrutinise their size guides, but I'm assuming you probably would have already done that. The pink polkadot one is very cute, too.

    Also, thanks for the London tips!

  7. I really love your choices. I haven't tried Jennifer Hawkins Cozi range yet but it looks cool.

    I haven't seen ones similar to the modcloth ones yet but I'm sure might find something similar.

    I love Seafolly :)

  9. Feels rather strange commenting on swimsuits as here we feel like we are rapidly heading for Winter!

    I do like those two Modcloth ones and totally agree with you over the thicker straps.

  10. i like that you call them swimmers. here people say bathing suits or swimming costumes and both sound kinda funny when you think about it!

    hope you find something you LOVE!

  12. Pretty swimsuits! I really like the ones from Modcloth, especially the first one!
    It's refreshing to hear you speak about summer approaching!

    I hope you have a good day!

  13. So glad you told me to keep going with Dragon Tattoo because I've really been struggling. Sometimes it's so hard for me to keep going when the beginnings are hard to get through, but then I remember how much I loved Memoirs of a Geisha, which was SO hard for the first 60 pages or so.

  14. I love thinking of you preparing for summer while it's getting chilier every day here in Texas! :) Those swim suits are all so adorable! I love the last one best - Navy is one of my favourite colours!

  15. Oo, gorgeous picks! I've been eyeing off bathers on modcloth too - wish I could help you. I have a black cozi one piece that I love! That stripey one would look great!
