Tropical prints are huge this summer, not only is a print flattering and helps to hide problematic areas but they are perfectly suited to a day around the spa pool. If you are naturally fair then a pale background with contrast colour print will enhance the slightest of tans.
Plunge costumes are the most flattering shape for all bust sizes. A smaller bust can be enhanced with padded cups and a low V, which also draws the eye upwards away from the hips. A large bust needs a shallow plunge and more support as this has a minimising effect.
Halterneck bikinis and swimsuits look great on a large bust but can pull on the shoulders so select convertible straps so you can wear them both halter and traditionally.
Accessorise accessorise, this is your instant fix for spa travelling glam. Choose accessories that are similar in colour tone to your swimwear and use in a multitude of ways. A pareo can be used to match in a hat or a bag, or as a summer scarf. Dresses can be glammed up in the evening and kaftans or tunics can be worn over skinny jeans with heals for night-time chic.
Ignore the sizing and wear what is comfortable. If you are tall go up a size for extra length, same for a large bust – no-one will know the size once it is on! Promise.
