S WE creep ever closer to holiday season (yay!), you may have noticed – in the shops or on social media – that swimwear seems to be shrinking. Cossies come with deep V-fronts and ludicrously high-cut legs, while bikinis are becoming even itsy-bitsier and teeny-weenier than ever.
That’s all well and good if you’re a Kardashian cast member or a leggy model (or both – looking at you, Kendall Jenner), but what if you don’t want to flash your bum or sideboob or tan lines when you head off on holiday?
The good news is, among this year’s swim collections, there are a lot of amazing options for those of us who need more than a few inches of Lycra and strings or straps to keep our bits in place.
These stylish pieces will make you look and feel amazing this summer... the illusion of a bikini but with more support. THERE’S a reason highwaisted bikinis are so popular with plus-size fashion bloggers – they’re fantastic for emphasising your waist and skimming over that lower midriff area that so many of us are keen to keep under wraps.
Floral patterns and cute ruffle details make these two-pieces even prettier.
