Retro Twist - Bandelettes Review.





Bandelettes: c/o Mish Online. Dress: Alice & You at Asos. Hair Accessory: Diablo Jo's from Claireabella's Closet.

So I may be having a Marilyn Monroe moment here on purpose but it was needed! I know that the dreaded "chub rub" is something that so many women battle with whenever they choose to wear a skirt or dress without tights I know I do and I've tried some anti chafe sticks, not very glamorous let me tell you that now! And my usual choice for under anything would be my comfort shorts or a pair of cut off leggings which certainly does the job but they aren't really pretty and when I'm dressing up properly it does make it feel ever so slightly less, well dressy when I pull them on! 

So when Mish Online offered me the chance to try out a pair of Bandelettes I couldn't resist. I'd heard about these bands of lace with non slip silicone strips on the inside to battle the 'chub rub' but I have to admit I'd never tried these before because I was pretty sceptical as to whether they'd actually work but I'm happy to say they really do! Now I've not worn them for a full day where I've been walking for miles but I've worn them when I've been out for drinks etc and I didn't find any issue with them rolling down at all as this is something I was worried they may do. My only issue is that I may have measured my thighs wrong as on the edge nearest my knee they are a little loose and aren't tight to my leg there, however it hasn't seemed to compromise their performance and it's my own fault for my dodgy measuring skills! One of the things I love the most about these Bandelettes is that they look like the top of hold ups and I don't mind if my vintage dresses flip up and you see some of the lace as it looks so retro and cute!

You can find all the different styles of Bandelettes here!

Electric Tone with Swimsuits For All.





Swimsuit: c/o Swimsuits For All. Sunglasses: Specspost. Bag: H&M. 

Today I'm showing you another fabulous number from Swimsuits For All, this time it's a One Piece. Back in the day when I used to swim ALOT my only option was usually an ill fitting and pretty hideous swimsuit. Luckily today I can find all different types of costumes to fit me that I love just like this Tropiculture Underwire! Yes you heard me it's underwired, this is something I feel is often lacking in swimwear having the support of an underwire, I mean generally speaking I don't desperately need it as the foam cups will do the job for me but I know many lovely women with a larger chest than me who would much prefer the more structured support. What I particularly love about this piece is that the underwires do not dig in at all and it are extremely comfortable to wear! The straps are also detachable if you don't fancy having the tan lines, the hooks on these are extremely sturdy so you don't feel like the straps will just ping off, which believe me has happened to myself in the past! Initially I wasn't sure if I'd like the print on this as it's something I'd not normally choose but once I'd put it on I decided I liked it after all. The print and neon accents really work together without being too in your face. Here I'm wearing a US18 I believe and in UK sizes I tend to be a solid 20. 

I decided to accessorise with my new favourite bag and my trusty chatty sunglasses which have my prescription in which is ever so handy! Obviously if I was at the beach and not in my back garden I'd probably just have sunscreen on and no make up but I decided to add a pop of colour with my MUA velvet lipstick in Criminal.

I'm hoping to get to the beach at least one more time this year so I can make the most of all my fabulous plus size swimwear!
