Who said swimsuits were meant for swimming? Anyone who spends pounds 75 and upwards on a bikini or swimming costume does not have Olympic training in mind. For that, stick to Speedo or Adidas. But if you're the sort of girl who swans around the pool, cocktail in hand and high heels on feet, these heavy-pose-factor sun-suits are just for you
