Let's discuss the dreaded swimwear ..... two weeks of the year we strip off and display our bodies in a bikini or swimsuit. You need to feel confident in your swimwear, especially if you are running after toddlers on the beach or by the pool when there is often no time to reach for the cover up!
Since having the kids I am less body confident I will only wear a swimsuit now .... preferably one that holds me in and up in certain places!! Last year my favourite swimsuit was £25 from M&S you may remember - it was a Dolce inspired polka dot number (this year's version here). I do love polka dot swimsuits as you can see in my swimsuit edit below

If you still have a bikini body, then there are some really pretty ones about, before the kids my favourite bikini was the Bel Air bikini by Melissa Odabash I had it in two colours turquoise and classic black. The fabric just holds and sculpts you and the bikini top although is not underwired or cup sized it is amazing for big boobs..... so flattering!

As you can see my tastes are pretty minimal, I like plain black, navy, red, coral and turquoise blue swimwear with the prints being either stripes or polka dots .... personally I just find them more classy. I do like a bit of scalloping too and the Marysia swimwear collection is so pretty.
Yes and pretty expensive too I can here you saying .... but there are some good high street options on the scalloping front, notably from Accessorize, H&M, Asos and Misguided.
