It's that time of year again. The sun has come out and it's time to face the prospect of wearing swimwear. The diet may have fallen by the wayside months ago, but there's no reason to hide away - the one-piece is back en vogue.
Aside from the Holy Grail a decent cossie is the single most difficult thing to track down. No further evidence was needed after a single trip to the local swimming pool. One lady was wearing something that wouldn't have looked out of place on a beach 200 years ago and at least two others were wearing leggings and a baggy t-shirt underneath their swim suits. The problem is that however pretty the designs may be you just can't actually swim in them whilst preserving your modesty.
Speedo have come to the rescue with their Sculpture range - designed to emphasise your best bits and disguise the worst. There are three fits to suit different body shapes; the bust shaper for top heavy, the waist smoother for hour glass, and a tummy and hip sculptor for pear shape. Sizes range from 10-20 and B-G cup. They even come in two different body lengths - all to ensure the perfect fit. It's practically made to measure. The only down side is that they cost around £100. Somehow I managed to get my hands on one for a tenner at T.K.Maxx (don't ask me how I do it, Bargains just seem to call to me).
