I think New Look is the best place for cheap but nice swimwear. I buy my bikinis there every year and I haven’t had to throw a single one out yet because they all last. A string bikini bottom would be good for your measurements as you can tie it to fit your size, and the string tops are good too because of the removable padding so you can have it in or out. You should get away with most styles on top though because judging by the photo on your blog it doesn’t look like you’re too big or small chested to be restricted to certain styles.
If you don’t need one deperately soon hold out until the big summer sale is on because if you’re willing to mix and match colours or printed tops with plain bottoms (or if you’re lucky to find a matching set) you can get a full bikini for as cheap as £5.
Peacocks also have some nice ones for quite cheap.posted about 5 years ago
I say for cheap swimsuits, well first off it never hurts to buy cute ones for next year at the end of this season to try it out for price.. but normal prices I’ve found that H&M is a dear friend, Victoria’s Secret has some pretty amazing ones on sale during the normal swim season, super adorable ones. Target is always a go to, and I really like flea markets, there are usually independent designers selling their stuff for cheap and then its super unique. For an hourglass shape, definitely string bikini bottoms because as splashofcolour said, you can tie them accordingly, but also for tops I love strapless ruched ones. they make you look busty but take some attn off your belly (if need be) and make ya look a lil slimmer.posted about 5 years ago
I’m around your shape! (my hips are a little bigger, you’re lucky :-P) and I bought my last bathing suit at Victoria’s Secret online. It was a little pricy, but they can have some great sales. And honestly how often do you wear a bathing suit? I’m fine with wearing the same one every time as long as I really love it, you know? Splurge if you have to that makes you feel comfy and sexy!

Try the usual places such as Dorothy Perkins, Peacocks (although I hate that shop in summer), New Look, maybe Debenhams as they have sales on there.
Also try Marks&Spencer, Tesco or Asda (the last two do surprisingly nice clothes)posted about 5 years ago
Well for your body shape and skin color, Id go with a dark color striped bathing suit. Like in blue or something. Try target, Belles (and outlet), and maybe Victorias Secret.posted about 5 years ago
