THE ULTIMATE DIY BURKINI (did I succeed against the burkini monopoly?) | Under £25 | Modest Swimwear

** O P E N M E F O R L I N K S **

Yes-kini or No-kini? Everyone needs a few great swimwear pieces for relaxing by the beach, or going for a weekly swim at the local leisure centre. In recent years, the burkini has hit headlines for a number of reasons, highlighting its importance for women who want to cover skin when on the beach. At present, I feel like there is a bit of a burkini monopoly in terms of design, colours, price and general style. After recently travelling to Iceland and feeling frustrated I had to find a way to DIY my own burkini – and here I am showing you what I managed to come up with.

Let me know what you think, what you’d change or modify and if it would work for you! Don’t forget to leave me a comment and subscribe for my daily December videos.
