Rawrgirls Review: Playful Promises Swimwear at Swimwear 365!

Wednesday, 22 May 2013

I'm heading to Barbados this summer so for the past few months I've been scouring the internet for the hottest swimwear around! Barbados is home to the gorgeous Rihanna who always looks amazing at the beach, so the pressure is on to look good while sandy. I still have a few bikinis that I took travelling, but unfortunately my favourite one passed on to the big wardrobe in the sky after a fun snorkelling trip on the Great Barrier Reef. 

I've always been a fan of Swimwear 365, I wrote a guest post for them last year and when they heard I was heading to the Caribbean this summer, they offered me a piece of swimwear to review! They stock a great selection of brands which are suitable for all shapes and sizes, my favourites being Lascana, s.Oliver and Playful Promises.

I always tend to be attracted to the quirkier brands which is why I chose this black floral print bikini by London-based brand Playful Promises. I was probably drawn to it because it's so similar to my favourite bikini (R.I.P) and I'm a sucker for a bright floral design with cute frill detailing. I love that you buy the top and bottom separately, not only does this allow me to pick and choose which two styles I like best, I can also buy two different sizes!

Swimwear 365 Review

My booty is much bigger than my top and sadly a lot of swimwear brands don't seem to cater for chicks like me. Thankfully Playful Promises is different, I'm assuming this is because they also sell lingerie and know the deal. I already have an underwear set from which made ordering easy because I knew I'd need the size S bottoms and XS top. The top is quite skimpy so I don't recommend sizing down unless you're a lot smaller up there.

Bandeau bikinis are perfect for tanning in which makes this one perfect for my trip. It also has a magnetic clasp to stop any embarrassing swimming pool incidents, pretty nifty eh? Swimwear 365 offer speedy delivery and have an awesome customer service team. I'd definitely recommend them to everyone!

T - So who wants to buy me the Hummingbird bikini? ;) XoX


  1. Love this! It's great that they cater for different sizes as well. Great for us girls that don't have equal proportions hehe :). Really pretty design, love the hummingbird one too! xx

  2. I agree, searching for a big top size and a smallerish bottoms is so so difficult so its really helpful that they sell them seperatly! I love the bikini you've chosen those frills are gorgeous!

  3. Ahh that bikini is so cute! Also so jealous of you heading off to Barbodos this Summer! I'm determined to get away somewhere hot this year so I can wear my bikinis in the beautiful sunshine they were made for (not the pebble beaches of Wales where they usually end up!)


  4. How wonderful and lucky you are to go to Barbados! I usually end up buying a different bittom for swimsuits, but fortunately I have found a few great ones this season. I love the floral design! :-) /Madison

  5. Oh wow, you're going to have an awesome time! I always like to mix and match to ensure I get the right fit too - although it's been quite some time since I've been on a beach! <3 xxx

  9. This is so cute, I love frilly swimwear! The magnetic clasp is a good idea too xxx

  10. Playful Promises create really pretty things! I want to buy something like this but I probably have no use for a new bikini, don't think i'll be going on a holiday for quite some time! waaah :-(

  15. Amazing bikini, cool colours!!

  16. That bikini is soo cute! I hate when they come as a set too, my non-existent chest means I'm always at least a size smaller in tops than bottoms. I have been sneaky before & brought both sizes, then returned an 8 top & a 10 bottom as a pair though! Mwaha! ;)

  17. How cute. I am actively looking for bikini at the moment whilst continuing to hit the gym to get beach bod ready! Will check these guys out!
