Buy the look: Blue summer skies. Bathers, Beach Dress and Santorini

By Anita McLachlan

About this look:
Let the blue of the summer sky take you to a place where you relax in an instant. Wearing nothing but your bathers and a hat. Santorini perhaps? Well...not right now but one day. In the meantime, a girl can dream can't she? We threw in the cotton beach dress just encase you wanted to venture beyond the pool to the bar.

Summer ready? Absolutely. Go get 'em.

Tummy conscious in your swimsuit? The 3 Tier Tankini style, in plus sizing too, is the answer! Help with confidently covering up a belly is the #1 request here at Sequins and Sand and this the most loved style - the go to cossie to help overcome that 'problem area'.
It's the style women turn to season after season because they know it works.

This summer's new print is a stunning paisley blue with ascents of white. Called the Santorini Print because of the signature blue and white colours of that most stunning Greek Island. Wouldn't that be nice. For now, in Covid times, we'll have to sit back and dream.

How does it work its magic? It's in the diagonals of the tiers which visually lengthen. And the tiers themselves especially when in a printed fabric, create movement and distraction, something this stunning blue print does so well. Contrary to some belief that they would add volume. Not so in our experience and expert opinion.

Wear this fabulous tankini top with a high waisted bottom for extra tummy support. Add a matching rash vest with long sleeves or a plain in a short sleeve for extra sun protection and coverage. Blue would keep the glam feeling up there. Throw over a blue beach dress in mesh or cotton and you're well on your way to having a wonderful beach or pool day. As for your tummy trouble...I think you'll find that's ease off too.

Features:

  • 3 Tiers or frills at the front but not at the back
  • Shelf Bra is built in with moulded non removable cups for bust shaping and support
  • Flattering V neckline
  • Straps are wide and fully adjustable for a customise fit and extra support
  • High back for to help with good coverage and great bust support
  • Suitable for C-E Cups

Size & Fit:
Size: 10-22 (while stocks last)
Fit: a great style for those with a fuller tummy shape and those who are more tummy conscious.

Fit: a great style for those with a fuller tummy shape (a Round (apple) shape) and those who are more tummy conscious with wider hips and narrower 'up top' with a Triangle (pear) or Diamond shape, look great in this style too. Rectangles love it too.
