Favourite Swimwear

The truth is, I don't own any swimwear. For a few years I just borrowed a swimming costume from my mum on the rare occasion that I was dragged into a swimming pool but, for a long time now, I haven't had to even borrow a swimming costume as any suggestion of me going swimming is vetoed point blank. It's not that I hate swimming. I used to love swimming - I felt like I should have been born a mermaid for much of my childhood. I just had no confidence in being in public wearing so little. I think the last time I wore a bikini was probably when I was about 9 - even then it was a tankini and I felt awfully self-conscious. But the last time I went swimming I wore a borrowed swimming costume, a large tshirt and a pair of knee length shorts. Thinking of that, I feel sad that I had so little confidence in my body that I had to wear more than most people were wearing outside of the pool let alone in it.
But, this summer, I want to try to make a step in the right direction and at least buy a swimming costume.
I find that it is difficult to find a nice swimming costume though. There are always so many different bikinis which are always so pretty and which I couldn't help including in my favourites here but there aren't so many options with swimming costumes. I would love to see loads of different styles and prints in swimming costumes and for them to be super flattering but that doesn't seem to be the case. I do like though this current trend of high waisted bikinis as my stomach isn't my favourite area so I would feel a lot more comfortable if it was a bit covered and, also, I just think the style is so cute and retro.
