I think I would normally feel pretty self-conscious posting pictures in a bikini, however I think this is a different matter. This is an awesome high-waisted retro style bikini from Modcloth that I bought in the sale last year and I absolutely love. I’d been wanting a high waisted bikini forever, preferably one of the Esther Williams one – I got one of her swimsuits a couple of years ago and it is honestly amazing (take a look at the end of this post
). I also have some pictures in that coming up from this holiday, but I wanted to do these ones first! But those Esther Williams ones are just so expensive – but I spotted this one in the Modcloth Sale and just had to get it, I think I got it for around £25 including delivery to the UK, which is pretty good really!

I would have felt a bit silly posing these pictures round the pool or at the beach, particularly since I got weird looks wearing it there anyway, so balcony it was. Even though they’re not the best quality photos, they actually show off the bikini quite well. I’m pretty certain that these style bikinis suit me better than normal ones, but all the other girls in string bikinis round the pool had certainly not seen anyone our age wearing something like that before, the way they put down their books and stared at me!!
