Welcome back beauties!
I booked myself a cheeky trip for some sun and it really got me thinking.. of course what am I going to wear but then the poolside stress kicked in! I really wanted to put together a go to post of really good swimwear that provides the support in the right places that curvier gals need. Is there such a thing as a “flattering” swimsuit? Well I certainly think there is and here are my top picks!
In my number one spot has to be these beauties for a number of reasons, I love the clever rouching detail on the front this will help to disguise a multitude of sins (and I have many), the halter-neck style is also a huge plus for me because you can open it when sunbathing without losing the support also unlike a lot of halter-necks this one still offers side support (nothing worse than a side boob lets be honest! This one is from H&M €39.00 sizes 18-28 and comes in black and polka dot
Next up is another beauty from H&M again this one has some fab rouching on the front on the front for a forgiving silhouette and an underwire bra top for support which I for one am delighted about there is also slight padding on the cup which is removable this style comes in sizes 18-28 and is €39.99.
Next up is most flattering for those that have a bit of a tummy issue but a defined waist, the bottoms are high-rise with rouching across the front and the top is underwired with detachable padding and again has a nice piece on the side rather than a “string” which can be very unflattering on fuller figures again this beauty is from H&M and comes in sizes 18-28 €39.98 (they are sold as separates)
This is also another fab option with some clever rouching across the tummy area and a firm hold strap sizes 18-28 €39.99 from H&M
This is from a fab Lingerie shop called La Jolie Femme they stock everything from maternity to bridal to swimwear and in between! How fab are these two styles the tankini has a built in bra and goes up to a 38G the straps are detachable as is the belt around the waist there are also strings on the side to make the top longer or shorter which is music to my ears! This is one that will last! €83
Also from La Jolie Femme is this stunning swimsuit again detachable straps and goes up to a G cup for support another piece you will have year after year €75
This budget option form Penneys is one that I use most weeks to swimming when at home and I love it, again it has the clever rouching on the tummy and cup support for just €14 its my star budget buy sizes 8-20
Now that we have the togs sorted I always think its nice to have something comfortable to throw on so that you can feel super comfortable sitting at the pool side bar sipping a cocktail (*Take me there now*). I always think an oversized shirt is fab, casual and sexy. Im loving this style from Simplybe.ie sizes 12-32 €30.99 it comes in a number of colours including black
Next up is a must have for me I just love this piece for it versatility it goes on like a waist cost and can be worn in a number of ways including as a dress see the pics below, I do love a multiuse item and lets be honest this leaves more space in the case for shoes! This comes in S-XL but will fit sizes 12-32 €27.99 Simplybe.ie
This beach dress is from V by Very on Littlewoods Ireland and I love the embellishment around the neck line it comes in sizes 8-24 €42
Lastly this super cute dress from Asos.com is ticking lots of boxes for me, I just love the little coloured pom poms on the sleeve and with this style dress you get a little arm coverage too for when you are just heading to the beach or sitting out having lunch it also comes in yellow for those a little braver they comes in sizes 16-28 and are just €24
I hope you found this really helpful but above all if you do nothing else go, relax, rest, enjoy because you are gorgeous and life is far too short to be worrying about what the label on your swimsuit says!
