Help style geniuses please!

Honeymoon in Mexico in a few weeks, at a fairly nice hotel.

First time staying somewhere "nice" so not sure what I need for dinner etc? Also plan to spend some time sightseeing so need appropriate clothes.

Am a size 26, top heavy. (Bra 44 L according to the intervention ladies)

Am hoping to use what I already have in wardrobe where possible, but have some budget

Honeymoon in Mexico sounds great! Congrats. Dinner - plain/ block colour maxi dress and statement jewelry as staple? Sightseeing.... same. Or 3/4 7/8 trousers and top and sunglasses. What do you like to wear in summer in hot places? For me, footwear is always the issuesad

thanks for replying mummie

I have a black strapless maxi dress, so could work with that.

Mostly in summer abroad I wear long skirts and kaftans, but that is mostly because where we ordinarily go that is the most cultually appropriate thing outside the hotel (and I come home as white as I left)

How much of everything should I take? How many swimsuits, how many sets of underwear?

How long are you going for?

I love a floaty kaftan over swimwear, with jewelled flip flops and funky beach bag and big shades.
Maxis are great in hot weather, I wouldn't take anything constricting.
What a lovely honeymoon, congratulations.

Wow Congrats. Maxi dress will work for dinner, maybe a scarf to cover shoulders if breezy by water. If having a little spend Monsoon have a range of sizes especially online.

For sightseeing I would take trousers to avoid thigh rub - 3/4 length cotton or linen. Personally I always wear short or thin cropped leggings under maxi dresses for the same reason, but obviously not for relaxing on the beach or similar.

I get your point MsJupiter but i normally use the Lanacane anti chafing gel and it is amazing!
