Just checking out what IW has in store for later, and noticed a swimwear hour was iminent, checked out the website, and there's a couple of wearable things mixed in with the downright hideous...but was totally shocked by the prices. This monstrosity is going to set you back the best part of fifty quid once you've paid the postage.....All I can ask is WHY? It has no special features, ie it's not tan-thru, it isn't structured...it's just a swimsuit of which there are plenty much prettier and more stylish on BHS's and Marks and Spencer's websites where prices for a one piece start at around £25 and going up to about £35! I don't doubt for one minute that you can probably pick up a decent bit of swimwear from Primark for less than a tenner, but I realise that some people aren't keen on Primark's ethics so won't shop there.....but what I'm trying to say.....is why on earth would anyone want to buy swimwear at IW, when they're blatantly hoping to rip their customers off. If I was going to spend £50 on a swimsuit, it would have to have something a little bit extra...be made from fairtrade fabric, or something, have a bit of "design" to it....something!!!!! Having said that looking at marks n' sparks, they've got something to suit everyone.

IW really need to pull their (badly styled, holey) socks up... cause all the seem to do at the moment in the way of clothing is cheap n' nasty, expensive and nasty, and at best expensive and mediocre!

The breast support isn't up to much!....what's that keyhole thing meant to be for, 'cause it sure isn't for decoration.....I'd fear a pop out in that :23:
 
Well said Merryone, I wouldn't even part with a fiver for that swimsuit, yuk!

If you're going near the water don't forget your rubber wellies you're gonna need 'em <a href="http://plugin.smileycentral.com/http%253A%252F%252Fwww.smileycentral.com%252F%253Fpartner%253DZSzeb008%255FZNxpt484YYGB%2526i%253D16%252F16%255F6%255F12%2526feat%253Dprof/page.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/16/16_6_12.gif" alt="SmileyCentral.com" border="0"><img border="0" src="http://plugin.smileycentral.com/http%253A%252F%252Fimgfarm%252Ecom%252Fimages%252Fnocache%252Ftr%252Ffw%252Fsmiley%252Fsocial%252Egif%253Fi%253D16%252F16_6_12%2526uiv%253D3.0/image.gif"></a>
 
Again having trouble getting a piccie on, but I found one on Bhs's website which looks much better quality and I would imagine be aimed at the same age group the IW monstrosity is aimed at....it's heaps more stylish too. It has the same fabric construction and also has built in support..and what's more it's more than half the price of IW's one....I'd be happy to wear it. The item no is 20420 on www.bhs.co.uk.

Just checked and it's pretty much out of stock, not surprised tbh, I will be shocked if Jacqueline's overpriced stuff sells out....or will I?
