High Waisted Swimming Knickers – An Elomi Review

It seems that even though the weather has changed and the coats and scarves are coming back out, we are still very much talking about swimwear. With every summer that passes fashion critics and consumers all over the world are talking about what makes suitable swim attire. I would think opinions on this matter would vary depending on who you are in conversation with.

I have seen loads of posts and articles about one piece items, bikinis, tankinis etc all featuring a plethora of different styles and brands, celebrity collections and blogger favourites. A little over a year ago I first heard of lingerie and swimwear brand Elomi. The brand specialising in garments for a fuller figure have a series of gorgeous and simple styles and I have to say when I recently tried out their high waisted swim knickers I was beyond impressed.

Many people buy swimsuits so that they can look super cute on the beach whilst catching some rays. I personally like items that are cute to look at but are practical for me. I really enjoy swimming and when I get near the sea I love take a leisurely dip and really go for it! First and foremost I want to feel comfortable and relaxed when I have a lot of skin on show. As a very busty woman I like to feel supported, lifted and secured in my swimsuit especially as water can make a garment feel heavy and loose. I also like something that is tight and firm against my stomach.

When I first tried out these high waisted knickers I was amazed by the comfort, flexibility and support. They came just under my bra line, and held me in nicely. Some of my looser, wobbly bits were smoothed out and I really liked the overall look and appearance of the garment. I must state that I have a lot of high waisted spanx and control underwear that I like to wear with more form fitting items especially dresses. As much as I enjoy wearing these I have to say I was shocked to find that these swim knickers gave me a better overall shape and support than most of my shapewear and they actually feel amazing on, even when wet!

I was worried that I would have a little slippage in the back and stomach areas once the garment was wet which would inevitable reveal my back-fat but in truth I NEVER had this issue and felt amazing on the beach when I went away earlier this year.

For those of you who are wanting to try a fatkini but would consider wearing a bikini top and matching swim knickers these are amazing and I cannot rate them more highly. You can pick these up via the official Elomi website or of course you can check out some other online retailers. I picked my pair up at Brastop for an amazing price so do check them out if you have a holiday coming up or you like to go to your local swimming baths.

Remember what ever you where, feel fabulous in it and where it with a smile!

Fashion World – Liz McClarnon Swimwear Range Launch Party

One thing we ladies enjoy, seeing the arrival of a new clothing line!

When I got invited to the launch of the new line by Liz McClarnon for Fashion World I sent in my RSVP pretty quickly. The former Attomic Kitten has come up with a swimwear collection for the brand and from what I saw there are some really nice pieces in the collection. The thing that’s great about this collection is that there is something to suit pretty much everyone and the sizes range from 12-32.

Me and Liz (Excuse my after work look, Liz looked stunning I loved her Tiki Dress!)
 What better place to have a Swimwear launch party than a Tiki Bar complete with ladies in grass skirts, men doing tribal dances and free-flowing cocktails?! The first drink I ordered was the coconut special named after Liz. They were even serving this one in full size pineapples!…
The collection is full of cute patterns and prints with a mature and sweet style that would work in any holiday destination on any local swimming baths.

My favourites out of the collection are the 2 black swimdresses. I love the cute daises on the bust line for one of them and the flamingos on the other.
After a lot of entertainment and coctails myself and the girls had a good catch up and even managed to snap a few pictures:
