Why is it so hard to find a decent bikini this summer? Help me girls!

I’m just asking for a little affordable flattering sex appeal! It’s that time again, I’m going on holidays to Greece for 2 weeks in July, where else would I be going! I need a bit of Island hopping of a summer. I’m going to Naxos and another island that I can’t spell or pronounce but it’s ok Alexis is fluent.. but I do know it’s fairly remote and has no wifi.. help me Jesus!! I think the lonely planet visited once…

Our balcony in Santorini last year… swoon…

Anyways, so on my lunch breaks, I’ve ventured out to the likes of River Island, H&M as I am trying to upgrade from Primark/Penneys as I just can’t face anymore TK Maxx style shopping in there, the stress is too much. I also dislike shopping in general but this year, I’ve taken to looking online also, as I am on my lunch break today. I literally can’t find any nice Bikini’s. They’re all so plain Jane, boring the head off me. There are really nice ones I have seen for like £120 but I refuse to spend anymore than £25/30 on one bikini. I’d rather get 2 nice ones instead of like 5 Primark ones. You only end up wearing the same ones all the time anyway.

I’ve also taken to fashion blogs but still nothing. It’s more like a chore than anything else.

Can someone tell me where I will find nice bikinis that actually excite me?

This stuggle is also as real as wedding dress shopping!
