Summer Style for Sun, Sea and Sand

It's been so long since you saw your beachwear you probably can't remember what it looks like! If you think it's not worth investing in your swimwear because you don't wear it that often, think again.

We all like to feel good and look good on holiday and what you wear on the beach is just as important as what you wear out for dinner. You want it to fit and flatter you and make you feel good (especially as you are exposing more of your body!).

So, if you have dusted off your swimwear and it's looking a bit tired, faded or shapeless or it simply doesn't suit you any more, now is the time to invest in something colourful and flattering.

Beautiful Colours To Choose From - useful if you know your colour profiling. 

I'm a CLEAR with dark hair, blue eyes and pale skin 
and love my scarlet swimmie with its beautiful bow at the bust.  

Swimwear colours we recommend for this summer are:

Beautiful Shapes for Luscious Lady

Your swimwear should give the same support as your underwear, suit your body shape and be in your WOW colours. Remember you'll be wearing it all day!! See our tips to find out which cuts suit your shape best.

As long as your proportions are good (you're not a Full Hourglass) you can wear any style, depending on your personal preference.

Full Hourglass
Underwiring or support is essential. Your bottom half should have little detail and ensure it doesn't finish at a wide point on the hips. Avoid stripes and detailing on your bust and hips. 

Triangle like meKeep detailing above the waist. Keep to simple lines on your bottom half, you might choose a darker colour. Beware of high-cut styles that finish at your widest point; you don't want to emphasize your hips but you may want to lengthen your leg if they are short like mine.  Just don't finish at the widest part.

Inverted Triangle
Halter and square necklines work well, as do pattern and detail on the hips. Choose geometric rather than floral patterns. Go for styles where tops and bottoms are sold separately.

On a one-piece, a central panel in a darker shade gives the illusion of a slimmer shape, as do square necklines. Avoid high-waisted bikini bottoms and choose geometric patterns.

Try a tankini or vest top that covers the middle and isn't too figure-hugging. Choose a bottom that is roomy and deep. For more cover, use a sarong or a floaty beach kaftan. Details on the shoulders will draw the eye towards your face. 

From the beach to the bar,
I can help you to get holiday-ready this summer!
