Going away in three weeks and desperately need some new bikinis. Im a 34DD and they need to fit well but not be all grannyish! I look at the triangle ones longingly and know it wil never hapen grin

Im a size 10 (dont love the tops of my legs so avoid shorts)

Any recommendations?

I'm 36DD, halter tops work best, they pull you up! Freya do a good range, got mine on figleaves, size guides are very accurate.

Freya. Lovely designs, in fact bought one from house of fraser just yesterday.
Also try fantasie, or for a cheaper range, gorgeous at debenhams are quite nice

Figleaves sell good stuff too.

YY to the Freya ones-they are fab, but for a cheap fix Primark have cup size ones too.

Cheaper still, Next now have bikinis in cup sizes that are quite pretty, despite being designed by geri halliwell

Freya are ace. Bravissimo does quite a few by them or you can get them online. They are quite expensive but I find that they last about two-three years as opposed to falling apart / fading after a month in the sun.

Figleaves - bought a tankini from them back in April - could not have been more impressed with it.

I can totally recommend Fantasie bikinis, Im a similar size to you and i find them so flattering. They are sold in House of Fraser and "proper" lingerie shops. Have got two that are three years old and they still look brand new.

check ebay, you can find both Fantasie and Freya very reasonably priced. Also

The 'isme' web site does some fab bikinis-with proper underwiring and solid support.

Try Freya on E-bay. I just bought 3 for less than the usual price of one!
