My friend Vicky has five bikinis and two swimsuits, one for every day of the week. 'I just don't want to do any laundry when I'm on holiday,' she told me the other day, trying not to blush. 'What's your surname – Beckham?' I laughed. Puts my ancient black one piece in the shade, that's for sure.
If you're planning your holiday wardrobe, the good news is that the Debenhams Blue Cross sale starts today – yippee! There's up to 70% off selected womenswear, menswear, childrenswear, beauty, homes and swimwear, including the designer collections. I've got my eye on this gorgeous Butterfly by Matthew Williamson kaftan, reduced from £35 to £28, and stunning Beach by Melissa Odabash swimsuit, reduced from £38 to £26.60.
And don't forget, if you're a KidStart member, you get 2.5% back on purchases from Debenhams – which will come in very handy for those back to school clothes in September.
