Our fashion industry has too often been guilty over the years of forgetting that women have boobs – and they need dressing. YOU’s fashion editor Sophie Dearden, size 34E, knows the problems all too well. And she has solutions…
When buying swimwear it used to feel like it was either too skimpy or super frumpy. I’ve learnt that it is something worth investing in. Great underwiring will keep those puppies above your navel, while quality thick-lined material will offer support and last summer after summer. With one-pieces you need something that fits the body and accentuates your waist. This gives you shape. Hurrah! With bikinis don’t try to cover up your wonderful breasts. Make sure you feel comfortable and confident, then wear whatever you feel great in. And when buying cupped swimwear, remember to look for cup sizes as clothing sizes may not reflect your bust needs.
