When UK Swimwear got in touch with me to choose and review one of their swimsuits I couldn’t wait to see what they had to offer. Especially as we have already booked our next trip to Spain for later this year.
Going on holiday with the family is a great way to spend some quality time with each other, away from all the hustle and bustle of daily living.
We took our children who are 5 and 6 on their first holiday abroad last year. We went to Spain and I can honestly say it was the best holiday that we’ve had together.
One thing I did struggle with though was finding the perfect swimwear. As we usually holiday in the UK, the only time I’d be in a swimsuit would have been in the changing room, the pool and back in the changing room. However, when abroad you spend a lot more time in your swimsuit. Laying around by the pool or at the beach. Wandering around covered by a sarong and I was definitely very frustrated trying to find something that I would feel comfortable in. In the end I chose a swimsuit with an attached skirt. This wasn’t the best choice as I spent most of the holiday peeling it off the back of my legs and it was not very flattering!
UK Swimwear was created in early 2008 by Dawn and Jonathan, husband and wife. They believed there was a gap in the market for good quality products to both men and women of all shapes and sizes. The gap was widened by the fact that customer service was not seen to as an important factor when dealing with customers. This would set them apart from their competitors and to this day it still does.
UK Swimwear has grown considerably and is now one of the world’s leading swimwear sites.
The range offered by UK Swimwear is incredible. There is a huge variety of styles, colours, fit, shapewear and more.
I will say here that leading on from their customer service statements above I can highly vouch for this. I chose a swimsuit and when it arrived it did not fit, I contacted UK Swimwear and they couldn’t help me enough. I returned the item free of charge and chose another. Again this one didn’t fit either and was returned. This is not a reflection on UK Swimwear however, we all know how sizes can differ greatly from one brand to the next and UK Swimwear were amazing in making suitable suggestions for alternative pieces that would be truer to size.
The Moontide Eden Twist Swimsuit
This is the Moontide Eden Twist Swimsuit and it fits perfectly! It retails at £82.95. Whilst this may seem a little pricey it is definitely worth it. Not only does it fit fantastically, it is much more comfortable to wear than any other suit I have owned which in turn makes me feel very confident in wearing it.
So much so that I am actually publishing the following photo of me wearing it! How fantastic does that look! I am by no means a small woman but at a size 16 I am comfortable with my curves and this piece just makes me feel wow.
UK Swimwear have swimsuits starting at around £20, and those on sale start at less than £20. There is something to suit everyone’s budget.
The Eden Twist is a wonderful blend of the most modern and ancient styles and motifs. Its modern elements come from its white geometric base with circular honeycomb pattern that is futuristic and chic. The ancient part is thanks to its namesake of the Garden of Eden. Luscious leaves and the wonderful array of colours that comes with the natural world. This is a bold and eclectic piece.
- Soft cups
- Adjustable straps
- A detachable front knot
- A placement print
Overall I am incredibly happy with the whole package offered by UK Swimwear. Their customer service is second to none. They didn’t make me feel bad for returning two pieces and they were very helpful in making suggestions for alternative items. The Eden Twist swimsuit fits perfectly and is incredibly flattering. I would highly recommend UK Swimwear.
