What I Wore in Gran Canaria: Fashionable One-Piece By The Pool

Hello lovelies,

Back at it again with my third entry to my ‘What I Wore In Gran Canaria” series! In this post, I show the one-piece style swimsuits that I wore by the pool. This is always the most exciting (and most expensive) aspect of going abroad for me. However, this time I found some bargain pieces and wanted to share this with you guys.

One Piece

Red and blue baywatch style swimwear or swimsuits. fashionable one pieces designed by primark. Haul

Over the past year, I’ve been seeing a lot of bright coloured one-pieces all over Instagram. I have been obsessed trying to recreate this trend but had problems finding ones in stores that were inexpensive.  However, I was pleasantly surprised when I found swimsuits in Primark at an absolute bargain – 4 pound each! I almost decided to take the plunge and buy one in every colour. Though I decided it was probably best for storage if I stuck to two, buying one in a Baywatch style red and another in blue.

I was concerned I might look like a child in a sea of grown women considering I haven’t worn a one-piece since I was a kid. I was even more concerned because I decided I couldn’t leave Primark without an inflatable pink flamingo, even though I was about to be staying in a hotel that is specifically for adults only. I won’t lie – I did receive funny looks. I’d like to think it’s because the high cut of the swimsuit and the low back made the piece a little sexier, but truly, I’ll never know.

In terms of practicality, I did not expect very much at such a low cost. I chose a size 10 but perhaps could have gone a size down because the straps kept falling down, leaving me exposed on occasion. This I did not mind so much as it really only was intended for fashionable wear, a splash in the water, and not for swimming lanes. The fabric, of course, does not offer much support but again, this is something that isn’t a requirement for me. The only issue is the fabric can become thin which does not conceal nipples all that well but, if you’re a bit of a feminist/ #freethenip advocate like me then let them reign in all their glory.
