have been looking for what seems like ages. i am short, size 12, 32dd, and don't really want anything too low cut at the front as i have a scar on my left breast, sort of right in my cleavage. these are ones i like,
boden the crossover swimsuit in the kiwi geo flower print. quite like it, dh thinks it's old woman-ish.
pour moi this also comes as a tankini, like the bandeau top as it will cover scar.
panache like this one, not sure if it would cover scar, but tried on similar in a shop and even though it's halter neck it gives good coverage.
see, sometimes when you've been looking at things to much, you just can't tell anymore whether they're nice or not. this is what i need, plain and simple 'no, don't like that one' or 'that'll make your arse look like an elephant'
The first pour moi one. It manages to look delicate and feminine whilst giving the 'coverage' you're after. Some of the others are a bit heavy/mumsy looking. Can I steer you away from the Panache one in particular?
Hmmm. I really like that Pour Moi one... (gets purse)
Panache coverage is good but I've never liked that suit design too much. Check out M&S D-G swimwear for seriously similar (and I mean exactly the same as Panache!) styles that you could try on. I have the spotty one - similar to the Panache Monroe in every way.
I find Boden crossover swimsuits quite plunging but I am quite short and think it makes a difference. I'm a size 12 32e.
I love the fern one but also don't wear black and was considering this myself.
