Bon Marche kindly sent me a swimsuit to test for you lovely people, although I’m hesitant to show photos of my in it, as I want to maintain my readership!
Swimwear is such a hard area for me, as it’s just so revealing of all the areas I’m most shy about. I still have some great ideas of swimwear designs that would flatter us curvy girls, but don’t have the know-how to turn these dreams into a reality…yet!
So in the meantime, I need to check out what’s already out there, and that’s where Bon Marche come into it. They sent me their geometric print swimsuit, which has tummy control (thank goodness!) and even built in cups. I HATE swimsuits that don’t have bra cups, as my puppies need to stay in their kennels, especially during physical activities like swimming!
I love the monochrome edging which really flatters my body, and helps to give an hour-glass shape. The design also has a retro 1950s feel, which is the era I am completely obsessed with at the moment.
For £14 I think this is great value for money, because it really helps in two of my “shy areas”- the tummy and boobs. The tummy control works well and is not uncomfortable like some control-clothing can be.
I would love to pair this swimsuit with a black and white polka dot sarong, I just need to find one first. Until then, I will use my shimmery black kaftan so I feel less self-conscious when walking along the beach.
All that’s left is to book a holiday…and find the money for one!
Bon Marche kindly gave me this swimsuit to review. No payment was received, and all opinions of the piece are honest and my own.
