Swimsuits for real women
So most of us have either got a holiday booked already or are certainly hoping to get away. As the time draws closer we start thinking about what we're going to pack and as we do we suddenly remember we need a swimsuit/bikini, however the one that you've had packed away all year (or maybe more) doesn't fill you with excitement and if you're honest you don't like the look of it on you anyway. I do this every year. However last year for the first time ever l bought two (from Next) that l'm genuinely happy with and they actually made me feel confident.
May l also add that after 3 children l will never wear an itsy-bitsy bikini like l used to and the days of lounging around the pool reading a book have long-gone, now l'm either digging hole/building sandcastles/or wiping ice cream of someone's face.
Therefore l need something that whilst running around doing these whilst holding everything in.
When you shop around there are so many that look more like underwear and on the average woman would be terrible so the ones l recommend below are failsafe, sticking to the basics of what a good swimsuit should look like. Nothing fancy, just classic.
