Just that really. Figure is ok, but I do have big(ish) boobs (32E/F) and a few faded stretchies on my tum. I accept that I'm not going to be a Baywatch Babe this year, but I do want to look at least ok in a bikini.

Boobs are pretty perky, so no real need for underwiring, would prefer some sort of stomach holding in panel on the pants really.

So top half I'm pretty flexible on and bottom half can be anything but a thong or one with stringy sides, which will make me look like a ham hock.

Love this but the price is and the pants are a bit too low-rise, I think, given that I'll be in the sand with DD a lot.

Not bothered where it comes from but budget is a maximum of £50

M & S have lots of options - some with a higher waist too!

Are you London based? If so, the kings road sports club is nice? I would try sweaty bettys and maybe the surf shops in covent garden/ speeedo shop too.

This is normally where you post back and you live on the isle of Skye

WOW ! The pants might be a bit low slung though.

I live in Worcestershire, about 25 miles south of birmingham

I've been looking for a new bikini for my hols and surprisingly have so far been most impressed with George at Asda and Florence & Fred at Tesco .

Prices are FAB, choice is really good and there are loads of mix and match items in each range. Did fancy really splashing out on a figleaves one or something similar, but have deceided to go for the bargain one and save the rest for cocktails!

that last link of yours is exactly the same style as one of mine NdeP, with just a diff print.

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 13:59:59

I love it but the halterneck might make my boobs look like a big wobbly builders arse (minus the hair)

lou33 Wed 20-Apr-05 14:00:33

But i have to say , I have tiny tits and it makes them look big from the way it pulls them in, yours might look too nell gwynn ish mayhaps?

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 14:00:54

milkmaid chic

lou33 Wed 20-Apr-05 14:02:42

i would go for a 2 strap one myself, for you

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 14:04:57

trouble is the 2 strap ones just have a tendency to look mumsy/frumpy and dull

fuzzywuzzy Wed 20-Apr-05 14:06:29

NdP if you want the figleaves bikini thingy, type in 48B-55B-238 at checkout in the vouchers bit, and you get £20 off ofcourse you'll still be a little over budget but that's the best I could do...

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 14:06:59

Thanks for the tip fuzzywuzzy

MandM Wed 20-Apr-05 14:09:41

Thought you were typing out my vital stats there fuzzywuzzy!

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 14:12:53

love this too , pants are the right sort of syle as well

lou33 Wed 20-Apr-05 14:27:27

my ones arent mumsy

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 14:28:25

They look frumpy on big boobed women, as a rule.

Came across but got a virus from their site
Now officially quarantined
I am expecting a visit shortly from my (notso) friendly IT manager.

should add it only works if you spend £80 or more...
