Holidays and swimwear
As the holiday season is approaching, I thought I would talk about swimwear, it can be a nightmare for many - it’s finding that right swimsuit that makes you feel good - whatever your size.
For those of you who have large boobs, think about support. Make sure the straps are wide and not thin spaghetti straps, also avoid halter neck styles.
Tankinis are a great option for those of us who are short-waisted - I have found that the traditional swimsuit style is just too long in the body. Although you could shorten the shoulder straps.
To help make your legs look longer opt for high-leg styles.
If you are very fair - a black swimsuit may be too high a contrast between the black and your skin tone - pick a lighter colour instead.
Boo Hoo and Asos do a range of petite swimwear - although some of the styles are aimed very much at the younger market!
Check out Swimwear365, Next and some of the lingerie companies.
Tip; Check out standard sized linen shirts - they will be long enough to be a short beach cover up.
There’s a huge range of coverups available too, from sarongs to floaty style dresses - so there is no reason for you to be a shrinking violet on the beach.
