Sun Worshipping in Marbella with

First I got my bosoms out for Natalie Lee's Warrior Woman Project, now I'm prancing around by a pool in Marbella being photographed in my swimwear! Whatever next?

But this isn't any old swimwear, oh no. Here I'm wearing the striped bandeau swimsuit from Gottex, which the lovely people at very kindly sent me when they heard about my trip to Spain last weekend.

In the past, fancy swimwear has never really been on my radar. First of all I can't actually swim so you'll never catch me heading to the local pool to do a few lengths after I've dropped the kids at school. Similarly we very rarely go on foreign beach/pool holidays in the summer. I'm ashamed to admit that I've had the same swimsuit for quite a few years and I got it in an end-of-season supermarket sale. Needless to say it's not the prettiest but it does the trick if I decide to take the kids to the leisure centre on a Saturday morning, plus I have a few bikinis which I wear for optimum tanning when the good old British sunshine does decide to make an appearance.

I decided to go for a Gottex swimsuit from after a friend recommended the brand and, more specifically, had commented on how supportive their swimwear is. The striped bandeau one I chose has tummy control and it's no secret that my tummy is the part of my body I'm most self conscious about. The fabric is incredible quality and really thick, so straight away I noticed - and loved - the support it offered plus, with its black, white and gold stripes of varying thicknesses and two sheer panels I felt that it was in a different league to your standard block black or navy support swimsuit. It also has removable gold straps (which I chose not to wear) and soft built in cups which provide some additional support for your boobs if you want or need it. Overall I thought this was a really glamorous looking control swimsuit and it turned out to be super comfy too.

I honestly didn't realise what a difference a good quality swimsuit would make to my confidence - I ended up spending four whole days sun worshipping next to the pool at our Marbella apartment and I even went for a dip in it every day!

The price tag may be a bit on the hefty side (£148.95) but honestly I think it's worth every penny. The thought, details, materials and workmanship that have gone into making this swimsuit are very apparent, even before you put it on.

Thanks so much to UKSwimwear for gifting me this swimsuit. All thoughts are honest and my own.
