“For around the pool I like dark colours that don’t draw attention to my figure. My favourites are navy blue, black, dark red and emerald green. I try to avoid little patterns and I like stripes or dots. It’s important that the swimwear is the right size and offers the support needed. The last thing you want to do is to keep pulling up your bikini bottoms or tops! 50s style bikinis also seem to be a big trend this year; they are ideal for apple shaped women, especially for those with a large chest as they tend to have wide straps and high bottoms.”
I have chosen a few pieces I can recommend and would wear myself from the Bonprix swimwear collection.
This balcony balcony is underwired and comes in two different colours, black/olive and grey/blue. It costs £27.99 and comes in the UK sizes 10-20. You can order it here.
This is an eyelet push-up bikini, but you can remove the push up cushions if wanted. The bikini is available in the UK sizes 8-20 and it costs £29.99. You can order it here.
