Shopping for a swimsuit can be on of the trickiest summer tasks, but luckily Marks & Spencer has come to the rescue.
The popular high-street store never fails us when it comes to all our shopping needs.
And hunting down the perfect swimwear is now no exception, with the launch of their brand new, figure-flattering, white swimsuit.
They have just released a new costume with a plunging halter-neck and a chic gold belting, that's almost an exact dupe of a designer swimsuit by brand Melissa Obadash.
Coincidentally, it's a brand loved by the Duchess of Cambridge, and her sister Pippa Middleton - so it has the coveted seal of royal approval too.
Their plunging white swimsuit has been worn by multiple celebrities, including Kate Moss.
However, the pricey costumes and bikinis sell for hundreds of pounds each, making them out of most of our price ranges.
But luckily, this M&S costume, which looks strikingly similar to one of their sold-out designs, is available for a fraction of the price, at just £35.
And it's not just a super glamorous swimsuit either. It comes with a slightly padded bust, and a tummy control waist, to ensure a flattering fit for confidence around the pool or at the beach.
There are only a couple of reviews on the Marks & Spencer website at the moment, but the majority are glowingly positive.
One shopper said, 'This is stunning and such a simple and iconic design.', while another happy customer commented, 'Well done M & S you have actually smashed it this year with your swimwear and this swimsuit is the best. When I saw this on your website I had to order it, I’m normally a 14 in M & S swimwear but the 12 fitted better.
'The color is a cream rather than white but looks soooo expensive. I love it!!! At the age of 52 I never thought I’d get away with it but it has a great lining and support!'
The M&S swimsuit is proving popular already, with a few sizes already sold out. So if you want it for your summer holiday, be quick!
