Sexy, Yet Suitable, Swimsuits

Or foxy and flattering… whichever way you look at it – this is a pretty hard item to get right. For a start, you are still parading 95% of your body and the bits that you usually disguise with clever dressing have nowhere to hide.

So what do you do if you still want to look sexy but need to look suitable? You create an illusion. So that from a distance, people aren’t noticing circumference of thigh, they are noticing how nice you look.

Good lines, never too tight (I always go up a size in swimwear) and a fun block of colour works a treat. House of Fraser has a fab collection of swimwear this season.

Let’s take a look….

Phase 8 Scarlet Swimsuit £47.20

With a detachable halter neck strap, this red swimsuit has a soft sweetheart neckline that is universally flattering.

phase 8


Oasis Waterfront Stripe Swimsuit £35

The eye is cleverly drawn to the narrowest part of your body where the top and bottom half of this swimming costume meet.


Kate Spade New York  Bandeau Bow Swimsuit £150

Enhance a smaller bust with the banned bow across the chest. This will make your waist look slimmer. Not a great one for bigger boobs though…

Kate Spade

Seaspray Hourglass Halter £75

Gathered sides help forgive a wobbly tummy.

Ted Baker Low V Tuck Swimsuit £75

I am not sure how flattering this swimsuit actually would be, but I absolutely love it and surely everyone would be admiring your swimsuit they wouldn’t look at anything else!

Ted Baker

Jets Parallels Low Back Infinity One Piece £135

Clever cut and design of this swimsuit draws the eye into the waist.


Whistles Vacation Swimsuit £60

Such fun but not in a club 18-30 kind of way that most slogan swimsuits look like. It’s navy and white which is automatically chic and vacation is so much more chi chi than holiday!


Perhaps you are still in the bikini camp? Sit tight, it’s coming!!

Have a lovely day xx
