You may have seen that me celebrating on social media recently as I won a holiday to Tenerife through Thomas Cook Airlines thanks to my #CarnivalFiesta blog post! I found out the news whilst I was bed bound with an absolutely horrendous throat infection, so it made my week all the better! James and myself are headed to the Santa Cruz de Tenerife carnival at the beginning of February, which is a little over two months away.
With this in mind, it's got me both excited and terrified of the prospect of having to strip down on a beach. I'm usually a city break kinda girl, so I've never had to face the prospect and nightmare of swimwear shopping. Being
blessed cursed with a pear-shaped frame (I'm all hips and bum with no tits, but not in a good way!) makes bikini shopping all the harder. For example, I have to buy separates as my bottom half is two sizes bigger than my top, so if my dream two-piece comes as a set then it's a 'no go zone'. Also, being quite tall means a lot of swimsuits are usually far too short in the body. It's an absolute nightmare, I tell you!
Thankfully Blossom Lingerie have come up with a genius interactive guide for styles that suit pear shapes. One of the tips recommended it to wear fringing on your top half to lengthen your body. As I'm a huge fan of anything with fringing, I'll definitely be keeping this in mind!
