Stylish Swimwear

Swimming costumes have always been a fashion oversight as far as I’m concerned. To find a fabulous bikini to flaunt on holiday is a necessity, but is prancing around a grotty indoor public pool looking stylish really as essential?! Apparently so! I was totally put to shame last week at Scarlett’s first Swimming lesson, the glamour mums wearing bright and fabulous one pieces and tankinis made a laughing stock out of my faded black, thread-bear-on-the-bum cossie I bought 2 years ago for a last minute aqua fit class. So, I shan’t be making that mistake again, this week I’ve been on a mission to find something more suited to a sun bed in St Tropez as opposed to the delights of Bracknell’s Coral Reef just to fit in! Swimming Costumes are quite an exciting buy actually, you don’t need to worry about the tan lines or whether or not its going to go with your towel (honestly I don’t really do that), and there is a such a huge variety to choose from whatever the season. Here are a few of my favourites…

Most Flattering

This costume by Lascana has all the tricks to make for a curvy silhouette; the bold print, the dark colours, rushed detail around the waist and a halter neck.

Best for Posing

Special K eat ya heart out! Should you dare risk a plunging neckline (and money is no object) this Karla Colletto costume at Net-a-Porter is simply divine!

Best for Swimming

Can’t beat Speedo, not just because of the technology within the fabric, but because of the feminine cut offering unbeatable support as well as flattering your shape!

Great Value

Found this little number by George in Asda, at only £12 what a bargain!

Biba swimwear is just as glamourous as their dresses and this black 60’s inspired one-piece complimented with bold red nails and gold simple jewellery is the ultimate in swimwear style.
