Some of you will gasp that I’ve chosen to write a peace on swimwear after one of the worst storms so far of 2014, but I’m not sure about you I need thoughts of summer holidays or at least a spa day! I love pretty swimwear, but for me it needs to be practical too as I love swimming! As I’ve explained previously I’m tall and sometimes struggle with getting swim wear to fit – especially tankinis!
Long Tall Sally have an excellent range of pretty and functional styles, cut specifically to fit women over 5ft 8! Here is a sneak preview of some of my favourite tankini styles, maybe I shall brave one this summer!
I adore this 50’s style halter neck tankini, the plain bottoms make it flattering on broader hips (like mine!) while the neckline draws the eye up from your tummy! The top is cut longer so it avoids the problems I usually associate with tankinis – the midriff gap! This is available in sizes 10 to 22, and will be available from early March 2014, priced at £40.00

If you fancy something a little more glamourous, how about having a look at the snakeskin print tankini? Cut especially for tall girls, just look how fabulous this tankini is!

I love the fact the top has a narrow halter neck, yet the bottoms aren’t skimpy, and the print is very on trend! This is such a glamorous tankini, whether you’re on a Carribean island or on Bournemouth beach it’s sure to make you feel like a superstar! I think I’d team it with a pair of gold sandals and an oversized straw hat! This will be available from Long Tall Sally from early March 2014 in size 10-22 priced at £40!
