I’m often seen squeezing myself into a swimsuit that is unfortunately too small – being tall and long in the body has its disadvantages. To be honest, I’m beyond caring – as I firmly believe that the best way to get a bikini body – is just put one on. Not sure who said that, but thanks, I agree.
But, having said that, I do miss the glamour and comfort of a beautifully-made swimsuit. The kind you can actually swim in, the kind that fits and the very elusive kind that gives you confidence if you ever get the chance to lounge around the pool on a hot summer day. In my case, it’s the quick run into the outdoor lido.
So eye spy David Nieper and this luxury swimdress. I’m a big lover of swimdresses but they are so difficult to get right. If the skirt part is too long, swimming is impossible and sometimes the ‘retro’ look is hard to get right. From limited sewing knowledge i.e. watching the Great British Sewing Bee, sewing swimwear is a difficult job and only experienced seamstresses can cope with the stretchy material.
Made in Britain
Now experienced seamstresses is what David Nieper has in abundance. They make all their own garments in their Derbyshire factory and employ over 250 people.
Beautifully-made for confidence
This swimdress is so well made. It is also so flattering, and is fully lined for support. In trying it on, I was really surprised how good it actually made me feel, and look – it nips in at all the right places and gave support where needed.
So good, I actually posted a few pics of myself on instagram – me in a swimsuit, now that is a first.
In terms of sizes, the swimdress is available in sizes 10-24 and if swimdresses aren’t your thing, you can view the full David Nieper swimwear range.
Here’s a selection of other David Nieper swimwear that caught my eye.
