Hello Sunshine! Gossard Swimwear

Swimwear is hands down the most challenging item to buy. We're both UK size 10, and whilst we know we're fairly slim, we still have our hang ups and problem areas...!

We sought a little advice from Alain, our favourite personal stylist at Debenhams who said that larger hip/bum girls should opt for a standard brief shape to hide all manner of sins and not draw attention to your problem areas, and to pick an area to highlight. So when Gossard got in touch and asked us to review a few pieces from their new collection, we got brave, put our big girl pants bikini on and tried 'em out.

Flic has already been wearing hers in Cyprus - a quick review for you lovely readers!

"Ok guys, I have to say that yep it's worth the money and this is hands down the best bikini I've ever owned. It is supportive, looks fabulous, washes well and fits beautifully. I took other cheaper bikinis - some I'd had a while, some I bought to take with me - and whilst it's fun to mix and match, I definitely think splurging on a new swimsuit or bikini every year or two is a great investment. I got some lovely compliments (always a bonus) and the print was so summery. Perfect!"

Lauren will definitely be sporting hers in the Algarve, Portugal this summer! She chose the gorgeous classic Sienna bikini, in universally flattering black...

Where are you going this Summer? We'd love to see your blog posts and pretty holiday snaps! If you liked the look of our picks, why not head on over to Gossard? We love that they have retro style high waisted big briefs and a choice of different bra shapes - that way you can mix and match whatever works for your body shape.

They've got a sale on too, and we love these cheerful one pieces for hollywood style glamour (above) - only £20 each!
