It’s vintage inspired swimwear today ladies, with our final ‘Vintage Britain’ Blog.
Swimwear is probably the most important purchase before any holiday as it’s something that you wear all day long, so you need to be comfortable, supported and still look stylish. All the selected styles have a gorgeous British vintage vibe that conjure up images of the British seaside in days gone by…think brightly coloured beach huts, grand architecture, donkey rides and Punch & Judy. However you don’t have to be holidaying in dear old Blighty to fit in with our vintage theme, our Bravissimo swimwear will look stunning on any beach where the sun is shining, from the Isle of Wight to Ibiza.
The Tropical Paradise Bikini Top by Bravissimo (new from Bravissimo) is a gorgeous floral bikini and very similar to a bikini that Brigitte Bardot wore on the beach in Cannes in 1953. This bikini is an underwired halterneck, it’s very flattering for bigger boobs and gets top marks for its shape, support and uplift. It is available in tropical floral, which will look good on any skin tone. It is available to buy with matching swim tie side or swim briefs and if you require more coverage than the bikini top will provide, there is a Tropical Paradise Tankini Top by Bravissimo too.
The Antigua Bikini Top by Pour Moi in aqua dot is also new, and proving very popular already. It’s another super flattering halterneck which has lightly padded cups. It ties at the neck and the cups are edged with a cute frill. It also features a gorgeous central bow, so along with the polka dots it adds to the vintage look. This bikini top will create great curves while offering good support. It comes with matching swim shorts or swim tie side.
The Beach Belle Tankini by Faubourg has a pretty seaside vintage feel. Available in floral/stripe, this tankini combines fabulous, retro style florals with candy stripes. It is an underwired tankini top, with a concealed bra back fastening. It is available with matching swim briefs or swim shorts. One reviewer comments, “I love it, the design is stunning and the material is very good quality. Can’t wait to go on holiday…”

Not many people could complete a challenge like that, not many of us wouldn’t want to. But it does show you, David Walliams is just a very strong swimmer, not an Olympic swimmer. Swimming is a great all round exercise and no, it’s not a good idea to take a dip in a fast flowing river, but taking up swimming in your local pool is a great idea if you want to get in shape. It’s kinder to your body, your boobs are supported by the water, so the bounce that you get when you take part in aerobic exercise is eliminated before you even start. Swimming will boost your metabolism, it firms all of your muscle groups and burns calories. And the best bit? It doesn’t put any stress on your joints as it creates weightlessness, so you can swim happily everyday without injury. Swimming can also help keep you young, research shows regular swimmers are biologically up to 20 years younger than their actual age.
So if you need any more reasons to take it up, how about Bravissimo’s brand new styles of swimwear that are in our stores now. They are so gorgeous, you will be happy parading up and down at your local poolside. The Paradise Swimsuit by Faubourg in red palm is a stunning swimsuit, the tropical print is based on the Kashmir Swimsuit from last autumn. It is underwired and very flattering with a sexy plunging neckline, it has adjustable ties at the neck, this swimsuit is exclusive to Bravissimo.
The Monroe Halter Swimsuit by Panache will look fabulous in the pool or at the beach, it has a fifties look and is on trend with its lovely polka dot print and is available in chocolate/cream. This swimsuit is super flattering and is underwired and will flatter your shape also giving great support. It has a cream panel, which sits under the bust creating a nipped in waist.
The Premier Ultimate Swimsuit by Speedo is a great sports swimsuit if you are a serious swimmer, it has a supportive built-in bra and is a very flattering fit. The fabric used is chlorine resistant and is very comfortable. We have received wonderful reviews on this swimsuit, it is available to buy in, aqua/black, black/pink and ink/pop pink.
Come on in girls, the water’s lovely.

Summer is coming to an end and we have been dismayed how dark it’s getting much earlier in the evening! We are still seeing some warm days, however as soon as the sun goes behind a cloud, you can feel autumn in the air. The end of the summer also means the end of Bravissimo’s summer sale. The good news is that now the best bargains are up for grabs, there is some fabulous lingerie, nightwear and swimwear on offer. So if you are savvy, you could have your swimwear sorted for next summer, new nightwear bought in preparation for the colder nights and stunning lingerie purchased as a treat for yourself or as a Christmas gift for a friend (I know, I know, we mentioned the C word).
The Paige Bra by Miss Mandalay is a gorgeous bra in fantastic hot pink. It is sexy, fun and flirty and would be suitable to spice up any evening. It is half sheer on the cup, so that gives it lots of sex appeal and it is contrasted with a bright yellow lace trim. This bra is an underwired balconette, with a slightly fuller cup, which offers a bit more support. It is available to buy with matching briefs or the utterly cute frilly thong.
The Magic Triangle Bikini Top by Freya is a stunning triangle bikini, it is black, with a metallic printed stripe in silver and white. It is based on the popular ‘Vodkatini’ design and is wire free, lightly padded and creates wonderful cleavage and great shape. This is such a classic bikini, it will never date and you will feel confident that it will always look great.So the nights are drawing in and it is getting chillier, it is really important that we feel comfortable and warm when relaxing in the evening and in bed. The Check PJ Bottoms by Bravissimo and Lounge Hoodie by Bravissimo, are just the thing to see you through autumn and winter. The pyjama bottoms are made from cotton, so will keep you warm, without making you too hot in bed and they can also be rolled and buttoned up. The hoodie is wonderfully soft, it has a deep-V and front pockets and is available in French navy. A perfect top for cosying up in front of the TV.
So get these great items before they go and don’t miss out on much more fantastic lingerie, swimwear and nightwear in the end of season sale.
