M&S Collection Water Lines & Feather Print Bandeau Swimsuit
Sparkle at the pool
A really pretty swimsuit, particularly for sunbathing with the detachable halter-neck strap. Has crystal bead embellishment. Looks good on.

Close, but not quite!
This looks lovely, the colour and style are fab, but it fails on construction. Unless you are a stick insect, this type of costume has a natural tendency to 'pull down' a little as the elastic in the material is so strong. Unfortunately the rubberised strip along the top is not strong enough to hold itself in place and it folds outwards, showing an uneven and untidy 'edge' to the costume. This is accentuated every time you have to grab hold of it and 'hoik it up' a bit, as we all do! Not quite so much of an issue when you have the neck strap on - but if, like me, you choose these costumes so you can avoid any tan lines, and want to walk around 'strapless' all day, it will not do the trick. I shall be returning it, along with the 'Digital Floral Bandeau' swimsuit which has exactly the same problem - but even worse, as the rubberised strip on that one is white!
