chatting to mate online who has stretch marks. SHe reckons she is binning bikinis this year.
SHe has amazing figure, really tiny - I think a suit cut out might look really nice. she worried is a bit jlo.

I did try one on once. I looked ridiculously bulgy. Bikinis are far more flattering to my figure, but your friend may well look lovely in one.

I never have but there are plenty about IRL here. Not UK though. 1001 in ASOS. OSme actually look like they'd be worth a try. Just not on me.

so they are for bloody amazing befigured folk then?

Like sodding bikinis?!

An actual waist is a prerequisite I think . Much easier to fake in a bikini or one piece.

yes, good point
I wonder how much scaffolding they have any how.

Would look terrible on me

I've got this one

I think the ones with the sides cut away are more flattering than those with the front cut away.

I like the design!

Your friend could buy some cover up cream such as Veil to cover her stretch marks and wear a bikini.

For some reason I get the image of that awful Lizzie Cundy when I think of a cut out swimsuit but the New Look one already mentioned is nice.
