Keep cool by the pool this summer

Girls sunbathing

If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off somewhere fabulously hot and glamorous this holiday season then you’ve no doubt been giving your holiday wardrobe some careful consideration. What to wear poolside can be a tricky style dilemma for those who  are not used to being so exposed.  Have no fear!

Read on to ensure you select the right swimwear for your body shape so you can kick back in confidence this Summer.

…with a small bust and straight body shape, then you should aim to create the illusion of curves with your swimwear.

Have fun with patterns, frills and embellishments on your top half to fill out your bust; ties or details at the hips will balance out proportions and emphasise your slim waist !

…and have a fabulous bust, it’s important to have adequate support built into your swimwear to ensure you’re comfortable.

A solid block of colour will be most flattering, particularly a central panel with a lighter shade on the outside, which will have a slimming effect. (That old wive’s tale about black being slimming will be debunked in a later blog!)

If patterns are your thing opt for some fabulous florals!

Retro style swimsuits (as seen on the likes of Marilyn Monroe) will look amazing on you!  This comes from the Magisculpt range, sold out but others are here….


Just because you’re in holiday mode doesn’t mean you should forget to complete your look with some well chosen accessories !

A dramatic sun hat, oversized sunglasses, embellished beach bag or vibrant mani/pedi will all complete your poolside look. Now all you need is a cooling cocktail !

Happy Holidays 😉
