Debenhams Reveals The Great Bikini Cover-Up Contradiction

The leading department store uncovered the great cover-up contradiction when they asked customers if holidaying in Britain affected their usual choice of swimwear, and identified the reasons for this newfound modesty among those staying at home for their break.

No longer the preserve of older women, less revealing swimwear options such as theskirted swimsuit are enjoying a surge in popularity among women of all ages, with a rise in sales of more than 112% year-on-year compared to skimpier styles such as bikinis.
