miracle swimsuits from figleaves - worth the money?

I am going on holiday with my size 8 sister and am dreading it as I am a size 16-18. Obviously I am not going to look as good as her but I thought a miracle suit might at least stop me looking hideous. Has anyone got one, are they worth the £100+?

No opinions on this but watching with interest

they look really uncomfy to me,just let it all hang out

Ooh, I just ordered one, so I hope so. Mine has an underwired bra bit, too. I'm going to feel more comfortable held in tightly, I think.. far too self conscious otherwise.

letit all hang out is just not an option for me, as soon as I found out sister was coming on holiday I almost cancelled. I should have lost the weight really but it has not happened as my anti depressants make me want to eat like a horse although I should have the self control to stop eating.

sarogs or kaftans are cheaper, but that women on trinny and susannah looked amazing - same as a corset really
