I am petite,but with good sized cleavage. but much prefer swimming suits to bikinis (better coverage)
I feel a bit boring in my present costume which I bought in a rush
it's a bit like this

Right so we have this red polka dot but medium leg, so not so flattering
yellow polka dot with very low leg, sort of cool in away, I like boyleg
blue boyleg
Yellow one and blue one out of stock , bah humbug
m+s pale blue halterneck with belt-like this one

I need more suggestions please, particularly as I now think the frost french ones were lovely (as I can't buy them)

What are your legs like, you need long slim legs to look good in boyleg styles, although that blue one is nice if that style suits you.

More generous (ahem) thighs look better in high cut legs. Maybe this or this

I like this one. Actually I think I might buy that one, thanks for prompting that search smile

I have got slim legs, so could go boycut
yyy, I like that last white company one
sophisticated but slightly frothy with the frill
What do you reckon, navy or white?
White only probably good if tan, and still english rose pale me, so navy i suspect
currently my short list is the white company frilly cup navy or the M+S pale blue halter neck

No way I could wear white! I have put the navy in shopping basket, browsed that sale and now the total is in the hundreds shock

Halter necks are good, give good cleavage.

Do you swim enough to justify the two?

DarrellRivers Sun 19-Jul-09 17:23:40

Will probably opt for the white company one in navy
Slightly cheaper and i think i look better in navy than the pale blue halter neck, but I shall think about it tonight and decide tomorrow
Have already done too much sales shopping so will try not to browse the rest of the sale

DarrellRivers Sun 19-Jul-09 17:24:08

Or buy the two

macherie Sun 19-Jul-09 17:27:06

Spotty one

Ooo, like this if you've got a good figure

Where else is good for swimsuits?

Know what you mean about sales, went to tesco this morning ended up with 2 pairs of lovely shoes from House of Fraser.

How did that happen?

DarrellRivers Sun 19-Jul-09 17:30:37

I might buy the two and send back the one I like least
The figleaves spotty one is gorgeous but £65 and only available in 12/16
Can't do strapless, worry about losing the top

Went for a coffee in town yesterday
Ended up with lots of surfer chick dresses and tops from 2seasons (I never shop in 2seasons)
Am sure will now rain all holiday

DR, you probably know this already, but if you go into the white co via the mumsnet link you'll get the 10% discount even though it's already reduced in the sale. I was surprised as most discounts don't apply to sale items.

Another good reason to buy it.

As for rainy holidays, the dc and I have taken to swimming in outdoor pool in the rain this year, they think it's hilarious, and since it's rained every bloody day since they got their hols at end of June, we had to adopt a 'if you can't beat em, join em' approach.

Now that is worth knowing
Thanks macherie

I have little useful to add except that I HEART your username, DarrellRivers

Oh, and I'd go for the red or yellow polka dot.

DarrellRivers Tue 21-Jul-09 08:28:52

Thanks JSB
Now it is pouring with rain, my heart has gone out of the new purchase

Oooohhhh thibk from your description you may end up looking a bit Babs Windsor in the yellow Polka Dot!

I have this one and it looks quite nice here and this one which makes you look as much like the special K girl as it is possible here
