Weather in Singapore hasÂ been alternating between roastingÂ hot and drenchingÂ rain recently, soÂ what does one do when she wants to show off her new floral swimsuit withoutÂ suffering the consequences of erratic tropical weather? Take a tripÂ down to her aunt’sÂ to use their beautifulÂ outdoor pool, of course. This little nook featuresÂ the right amount of shade from the scorching sun throughÂ its paneled roofing as well as lush foliage from trees that grow on the perimeter. It alsoÂ offers a meditative view of the Koi pond right across the boardwalk. And have I mentioned the pool is a jacuzzi too? I’d live here forever if I could.
But I digress. It was love at first sight when I saw this swimsuit on the Chictopia Shop,Â so much so that I didn’t care that I exceeded the budget I got in collaboration with Chictopia; I had to have it. I’m a fan of floral prints that findÂ a strong balance between bold colours and visual sanity, butÂ the modest cut of the top was actually what sold this piece for me. I’m not exactly fleshy on top, so the sweetheart cut is pretty much perfectÂ inÂ creating curvesÂ where I naturally lack. The quality was really well-done too, in fact exceeding my expectations when I discovered that the bust area was substantially padded with aÂ reinforced under-bustÂ (something that the more well-endowed might appreciate). Also, the swimsuitÂ bottom is a high-waisted vintage style that fit comfortably without being too tight. All in all, thisÂ was an amazing purchase I didn’t regret. â™¥
