Bravissimo gingham bikini

Today's swimwear pick is another pretty design for those of you who need a DD+ cup for some extra support on the beach. The retro-inspired gingham design is from the in-house label at Bravissimo, who are long-term experts at making sure those of us with fuller busts get plenty of fashionable underwear and swimwear options.

I love the description of the colour of this bikini - it's not red. Oh no, this is 'cherryade pink', which reminds me of childhood holidays and picnics on the beach. With this in mind the gingham print is very apt - not to mention timeless and flattering.

You get a choice of bottoms to go with the cup-sized plunge bikini top (£34). Choose from the short pictured above, with drawstring detail on the sides, or opt for a slightly more skimpy brief with a wide red band - both are £20 a pair.
