Spotty dotty swimming costumes or bikinis

Anyone seen any nice ones? I tried and bought the Boden one in red, but returned it as sadly it didn't quite fit right.

Fancy something in navy or red, and it doesn't have to be spotty, but I do like the 'nautical' look of them. Am a bit of a Breton obsessive too!

Thanks in advance!

I've got this one in purple and also a blue which I can't find any more. The stripey Midnight Grace one looks lovely too. They are a really good fit and give great support. The frilly knicker detracts from my belly too grin

I also got a blue spotty bandeau swimming costume from Sainsburys but I can't find that on line I'm afraid.

I got a fab black and white spotty one from Asda - £12! And it's a belly hider one too, 50s ish. Removable halter neck straps.

Thanks both. toastandmarmiterocks did you get the big knickers? I quite fancy them but wonder how flattering they are? I am a size 8 with a fairly flat tummy but I have had three children so there is a little wrinkling that I'd like to disguise! Also BF the moment so underwired top looks great!

What's your budget? Because the J Crew one on NetaPorter is gorgeous here

Ooh!! I love it, and am going to the States in a week and a half - will order and collect when I'm there, thanks!!

Just looked, equally expensive in dollars. Hmmm.....will keep it on the backburner. Anyone else seen any?

I got the 'pin up frill bikini brief'. My size varies depending on items I'm usually an 8 but I went for the 10 because I didn't want a tight fit (so unflattering). Perhaps if I manage to stick at the 30 day shred I'll wish I'd bought the 8!

... wanders off dreaming of a teeny tiny pert size 8 toosh...

Lucky you going to the states! Is there anything on Figleaves?

The knickers on the figleaves ones are nice (and high) but don't work with the tankini. With the bikini they should be good.

M&S has a lovely one too here. I bought the tankini last year and have last week bought the matching bikini top from Figleaves ( the Panache Monroe)

Panache also do a lovely nautical red stripe

I'm not usually a M&S fan, but this one is very flattering on.

Thanks ladies, will have a look when the baby sleeps!
