So here’s a selection of swimwear available from Arnotts. If you click through the photographs you’ll get, in the file name, the prices and brand names. Hurrah for technology / clever naming.

As someone with a somewhat ample – ahem – bosom, these kinds of tops are probably a good idea, although I do just tend to stick with swimsuits. More classy, I say, although what I really mean is “more casual, and I don’t need to worry about engaging my core”.

I have a swimsuit just like this! But in purple. I’ll tell you now, it’s not great for swimming, but if you don’t care who gets a good look at your goodies, then go on ahead.

I love polka dots, although I do fear looking like an overgrown child. Now: the bottom polka dot swimsuit is lovely, and I like, in theory, the skirt idea, but does it not scream “I am a bit fat – no, look, I really am, check out my swimsuit skirt”?

Cute! Vintage in appearance!

I know this looks very . . . I don’t know. Old? As in, old-school? It’s not vintage in the way we think of vintage, but it’s very retro. In a I’m-going-camping-to-Wexford-with-my-folks way. An old-fashioned innocence? I like it.

I don’t love this swimsuit at all, and I suspect it only looks great because it’s against a sunny, holiday background – but oh, what a background! Now tell me: are you holidaying? Is this acceptable, in the recession? If so, where are you holidaying? If not, are you having a full or half head?
