Super Stylish Designer Swimwear For Curvy Girls.

In case you are not a long time reader of my musings I feel it only right to tell you that along with my designer footwear, handbag and sunglasses obsession, I also have a bikini one.
There I said it.
Some things never change no matter how old or overweight you get, but luckily for me I do at least get to help my three daughters choose their swimwear whilst I dream of days gone by when I would have bought similar two pieces.
Sadly I don't have the body of Elle McPherson nor that of Linda Barker, although I certainly make a "SPLASH" whenever I enter the water and I have already had a browse at new season swimwear and am eagerly awaiting my trip to Marbella in May, so with a few old designer bikini's now destined for ebay, I am on the hunt for something both age and figure appropriate and this is where a new swimwear range ticks all the boxes.
Step in Swimwear designer to the A List, Melissa Odabash, and her capsule "sea" collection for Marisota.  At last we have a range of figure flattering shapes, purse friendly prices and styles in sizes 12 to 32 and not a tie sided bikini bottom in sight - Amen to that!

Melissa Odabash for Marisota, giraffe print bikini, £40

Melissa Odabash for Marisota, teal blouson swimsuit, £45

Versatile: The giraffe print sarong comes with a gold ring to enable it to be worn in at least 3 different ways

Cool and elegant: Sea collection white kaftan, by Melissa Odabash for Marisota, £35

Sea by Melissa Odabash

The collection also includes gorgeous cover-ups, sandals, beach bag and a rather glamorous sunhat, so celebrate your curves and feel confident in your swimwear no matter what your size . View the full collection here

  1. Hi there!! Wow, what a lovely collection, the kaftan and first bikini in the print are amazing pieces and would be fabulous for the summer holidays! Will you be getting something from this collection? xxx

  2. Love this post and adore all the pieces! The cover ups are especially gorgeous! I'm in need of a new swimsuit - a nice one - because I found a brand new with tags Speedo at the back of my bottom drawer I must have bought 3 years ago which is perfect for actual swimming. Think I'll go for a tankini again but with more support and lift for the bust - goodness knows if I'll ever find it though!

  8. Ooooh, now I desperately want to go on holiday. I need some sunshine in my life:) Love the second one, very flattering cut.

  9. I've recently come to the conclusion that I need to start buying quality swimwear - the H&M bikinis won't do any longer:) This is a great collection, and I just love that cover up! Too bad they don't seem to deliver to Norway though.

  12. Swimwear puts the fear of God in me, but I think these cover ups and kaftans could definitely help me out! x

  13. I am also looking at putting my bikinis on ebay or even giving them away! Tops dont cover my assets, bottoms well, either too baggy or too skimpy. Have you looked at Bravissimo? I absolutely hate shopping for swimwear. One day maybe, one day I will find something that fits, even a 1 piece!

  16. They are all amazing but my favorite was the blue one. As it can cover the stretchmark I got during my pregnancy. Fabulous!
