1950s style swimsuit by Hell Bunny
To any woman whose self esteem plummets at the thought of what to wear to the beach, I recommend a 1950s style swimsuit.
They’re flattering, feminine and they mean I actually look forward to going to the beach. In fact, 1950s style swimsuits basically changed my life. I used to dread being seen in public so scantily clad. But since discovering how incredibly flattering these 50s-style swimsuits are, I relish any excuse to wear one, including a trip to the seaside.
Who cares if I can barely doggy paddle and my chest is five shades darker than my face?
I feel like a 1950s movie star. And what’s better than feeling like a 1950s movie star? Feeling like an Italian 1950s movie star, of course! Enter Hell Bunny’s exquisite take on vintage swimwear and my happy face.
This has to be one of the most gorgeous swimsuits I’ve found.
What really makes this baby stand out is the luscious scarlet and fuchsia floral print. It’s irresistibly sexy and oozes la dolce vita glamour. Don’t forget to paint your lips and nails to match. The black background streamlines your silhouette and the ruching across your tummy helpfully skims over any bulges you gained while enjoying life.
Essential reading on sizing and fit
The Hell Bunny fit on this one-piece is true to size. I’m wearing my usual size 12 and it’s spot on. The fabric is strong and supportive. It sculpts your figure and sucks in your wobbily bits, acting like an incredibly beautiful piece of shapewear. The thick halterneck straps hoik your tatas right up, giving support and Mediterranean cleavage to even huge, heavy breasts like mine.
It’s currently available for £29.99, which I consider a bargain price for this much poolside confidence. Can you tell how much I love this swimsuit yet??
