When the fabulous ladies from Bras & Honey asked me if I'd like to review an item from their store I was spoilt for choice. They specialise in larger cup lingerie and swimwear and so I had the luxury of not being limited to a few styles, the majority of which wouldn't look out of place on Mrs Trunchbull.
I'm going away again this year and so thought this could be a sneaky opportunity to get a high quality bikini, rather than the usual fast disposable fashion I go for for my holidays. As soon as I saw the Panache Savannah bikini in Emerald I knew I'd found the one.
The magenta, topaz and emerald shades are simply stunning - Summery without being too gaudy and really flattering against my Casper complexion (Which, incidentally, does not change in the sun. At all.)
These are the gathered bikini bottoms which give a surprisingly good amount of coverage, despite my expansive bum. The top is the Balconnet which is beautifully flattering as well as supportive, the straps are lovely and thick and my boobs are exactly where they should be - not around my tummy button.
The only thing I'd say to bear in mind about the sizing is that bikinis are not bras, the straps are a lot less flexible so it's often worth sizing up. This top is a 34GG and fits beautifully, I'd potentially should have gone for a 36 but actually I like the fact that I can do some mega cannonballs without worrying about flashing a multinational audience. I went for the 2L (18) with the briefs and they fit perfectly, again I usually like to size up a little so I'm comfortable and there's no digging in.
I simply cannot wait to get this bikini and the body within it into the sunshine because this bikini, me , my kindle and a sh*t-tonne of sangria are what this Summer's going to be all about.
Are you going to be baring your button this year? My theory is; life's too short to worry about the wobble when you're on holiday - Just enjoy yourself or what's the point REALLY?!? Thank you Bras & Honey for this lovely ensemble, I certainly know where to look when I need more big boobie bikinis!!
