Stylish swimwear

Stylish swimwear for the beach

The thought of wearing the kind of skimpy swimwear that I used to pack into my holiday luggage, pre-children, now frightens the life out of me. There wasn’t much material in those bikinis ‘back in the day’. They therefore won’t be making an appearance on our family holiday to Greece next week seeing as my shape and body has changed somewhat since being pregnant with twins.

However, neither do I want to be covered head-to-toe Nigella Lawson style..(remember that black suit?).

So step forward flattering swimwear and some stylish accessorises to give me a comfortable but chic look for sunbathing around the pool and sipping cocktails whilst the children splash about.

Here are my top picks from around the high street for stylish but comfortable summer swimwear and accessories for this season:

Super stylish swimwear for Mums

Floppy sunhat by Accessorize £15

Ditsy floral swimsuit & flip-flops by Laura Ashley £45 & £16

Rose gold sunglasses by River Island

Bag by Debenhams £20

Lace sarong by Monsoon £19

I love the colour of the ditsy-print swimsuit, which I now own and is in my suitcase! Plus, more importantly, I love how it has tummy control which is perfect for looking gorgeous. With matching flip-flops! I will be using a sarong too for when it’s time to head back to the room, or for sitting around eating lunch with my family by the pool.

Floppy beach hat + cool shades = summer essentials. I love these rose gold sunglasses!

As a Mummy of two I also need a large beach bag to carry all the suncream, towels and snacks for the children to the beach. This one is stylish, practical and reasonably priced too.

We don’t have long until we head to Levante Beach with Mark Warner Holidays so I must dash off and finish my shopping!

Love, Jess x
