I always dread the summer. It may sound like a strange thing to say as most people love the warmer climate. However summer to me is an endless struggle when it comes to clothes. Everything I buy tends to be extremely unflattering in my opinion. Usually I can’t find clothes which enhance my figure or are a colour that flatters my skin tone. So you can imagine how hard it is for me to find swimwear that I feel suits me.

That is one of the reasons why I was hesitant to buy bikinis online in Ireland because at first you can never predict the quality of the garments you are going to receive. However I was fortunate enough to meet a friend of mine who had already found an online store and received a luxury bikini from the brand in question. We went swimming one day and I could not help but notice just how flattering and high quality her bikini looked. When I asked her where she had got it, she advised me it was from Sparkle Mode (http://sparklemode.com), an Irish swimwear brand. I got the details from her and visited the website later that evening.


A Review of Luxury Bikinis from Sparkle Mode

I was very impressed with the range of bikinis and swimsuits available on the Sparkle Mode website. There is a wide range of swimwear styles to suit every figure. They are also at extremely affordable prices. The swimwear is also UV protective which means more protection from the sun if you are going abroad or it is a particularly hot day.


My Top Picks of Swimwear from Sparkle Mode

My favourite bikini that I found online was the Ibiza bikini as pictured below. This bikini looked an extremely flattering halter neck shape which adds lift and curve to the bust area. The tie bottoms give extra detailing without it looking “too much.” Perfect for sunbathing by the pool on a summer holiday.

I also needed to purchase a swimming costume as I am planning on undertaking many sports on my holiday this year and after reading this guide on the best swimsuits for my body I chose The Positano. The Positano swimsuit pictured below is modern with its low scoop back. Yet it is also supportive with the underwired cup support that it provides.





My Review of The Sparkle Mode Service

I am always hesitant to buy swimwear online, not just because of the fit and quality, but because of the service that you may receive too. I am delighted to say that the delivery from the brand was very prompt indeed. They kept me updated at every stage of my delivery so I knew exactly when my parcel was going to arrive. Their returns policy is also very clearly stated on the site so I knew exactly what to do if my online swimwear order did not suit.
