Would YOU Buy This 99p Bikini? InStyle Puts It To The Test

Peacocks has launched a 99p bikini, and it’s actually not as bad as you'd think. To celebrate the bargain-fever, we take a look back at the other £1 wonders that have hit the shelves over the years...

Yep, you read that right. High-street brand Peacocks has launched a 99p bikini, and it actually doesn’t look too bad. Available exclusively on the Peacocks website, the blue and white polkadot two-piece is a nautical classic, ready to throw in your suitcase no matter where you’re travelling to. At this price, you can even afford to buy one for everyday of your hols.

While we’re not so sure the quality of this budget bikini will rival the likes of it's more pricey counterparts, it certainly does the job of looking a lot more expensive than the 99p you forked out for it as you lounge by the pool, cocktail in hand. Upon getting our hands on it, it's obvious that you'll need to keep an eye on the top's straps to make sure there’s no accidental exposure and, just as an FYI, those bottoms probably aren't made with hardcore waves in mind. In short, this is bikini is amazing value for money but it's USP is definitely aesthetics over function... 

This isn’t the first time our underwear drawers have been treated to unbelievably cheap prices. Remember when Poundworld dropped the £1 bra? It wasn’t the sexiest undergarment on the market, but it was a sell-out sensation across the country. The sporty style was more crop-top than Agent Provocateur, but for, um, boob emergencies (let us know if you can think of any…) can you ever really argue with 100p lift?! It even came in a range of classic shades and was big enough to support ladies up to an E cup. Talk about pleasing your entire market.

In 2013, iKrush.com also got in on the £1 act, selling a range of ten dresses for the bargain price of, you guessed it, £1 each. There was PVC, floral, and graphic prints to choose from with details like dip hems and cut out panels homing in on the top trends – and all for a quid. Not even Primark could price-match that! The launch was to celebrate the brand’s first birthday, and it went down a treat with bargain-hungry shoppers desperate to grab a new outfit for less than the price of their morning coffee.
