If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen me and the girls in our matching swimming costumes. When I spotted them in Next I knew I just had to have them – I have always said that Next have gorgeous kidswear and that I’d wear half of it myself and now I can! I am sure there are plenty of people who will think me bonkers but I don’t care – I love it and so do the girls.
Now obviously because they are from Next they are all brilliant quality too. The girls have swimming costumes but mine is actually a tanksuit. I’d heard of a tankini before so wasn’t entirely sure what a tanksuit was but I’ll tell you what it is – genius.
Basically it looks like a tankini but it is actually a swimming costume! The pants are part of a swimsuit and then the top part just layers over the top to create the illusion. The result is a really flattering look and you don’t have to worry about pulling your pants up while you whizz down slides and enjoy yourself in the water.
The matching fun isn’t just for the girls either – boys can match too and I have bought some shark trunks for Wills and Mr F – keep an eye out for photos of those when we go away in a few weeks!
Would you do matchy matchy with your kids?
The girls and I were kindly our swimsuits but all words and thoughts are my own.
