For those like me who don’t want to hang out (of?) a bikini by the pool or on the beach it’s not always easy to choose a one piece swimsuit that is cut to be flattering if you’re curvy. These are my favourites.
I believe that a one piece swimsuit can be far more sexy and flattering than a bikini – maybe unless you have a model like figure – so if you’re looking to invest in something gorgeous to take away with you choose from a selection of halter necks, v necks, bandeau (with detachable straps) and simple one piece swimsuits that you’ll really feel good in.
Inevitably there’s a wide range of prices from designer to high street, and every colour under the sun, literally. Some have ruching and extra support and others just let you do the talking. I often think there’s nothing better than something beautifully cut in black but inevitably there are floral swimsuits, stripes, spots and swimsuits with various bits cut out.
Many of these have started to sell out, particularly in larger sizes, so please don’t wait until you’re just about to jet away, therein lies much frustration and disappointment. The key to the best holiday swimwear is to choose early and then accessorise with cover-ups and beach dresses – post to follow shortly……
