Thanks for the replies. I love the Figleaves ones. Afraid that I need to look for shapewear to hold it all together and I am a 38F which could do with some support too. Budget is probably less than £45 as I am unlikely to wear it again, at least for this year.
I would say the according to their size chart I needed a size 24, I ordered by usual 20 and the pants are a touch snugged than I like. The cup sizes seem right though, I really wanted one style and they didn't have the correct size so I risked going up one and I shouldn't have.
Thanks Lurking. The colour block one is lovely and one I would buy if I were a size smaller. I'm feeling a bit body-conscious just now so trying for a flattering shape but kind of low-key without being too predictable and going for a shape-shifting black bodycon style. Not asking for much really.
If you are going away on a sun holiday, I would really go for what you like. While I know you will notice your size and shape, no one else will. Everything looks different in the sunshine. The colour-block one is way nicer than a palin black one. Probably less noticeable on hols too. Plain black in the heat always looks too hot. And I certainly wouldn't let just one size put you off. Give it a go.
Not sure about that one either. Think the mid-rift colour is a bit off and doesn't really go with the rest. Sadly not a hot sunshine sort of situation, more of a UK mini-break with friends in an intimate setting and likely to be rainy-outdoors sort of break. Usually, sunshine hols work out OK as I tend to just lay down and then use wraps when walking around.
