Top 5 Swimsuits From River Island

Even though I am now the wrong side of 35 I can still rock a bikini with the best of them. I am proud of my post-pregnancy body, sure I would love to have a stone of blubber sucked out of my thighs and ass but overall my body isn’t too shabby after housing and birthing 2 kids.The problem I now have with wearing bikini’s on holiday is the need to chase around after 2 small children while trying my best not to expose my boobs or bum. For practicality swimsuits are a necessity for family holidays and with so many fab designs and colours around you don’t need to be a #frumpymummy. River Island has always been my go-to shop for swimwear thanks to their vast choice and correct sizing. I know that if I buy a size 12 swimsuit I am not going to have the material riding up my bum or squashed bulging boobs. I have chosen my top 5 swimsuits from the River Island range to showcase for you today.


  1. Black shirred bardot sleeve swimsuit – £36 This swimsuit is perfect for anyone with a bit of a mummy-tummy as the patterned top is going to draw the attention up to your top half. Add a pair of shorts and you have the perfect outfit for exploring the shops.

  2. Orange floral mesh insert plunge swimsuit – £36  The bright orange colour will look great with a tan and the crossover front will stop any boob slippage. This swimsuit has a high leg which will elongate even the shortest of leg.

  3. Pink tropical cut out high neck swimsuit – £35 If you have a boyish figure this swimsuit will give you some curves and show off your slender stomach. The Pucci pattern is fun and sporty.

  4. Coral snake print ring zip plunge swimsuit – £35 With a zip down the front this swimsuit can be modest or racey , however, you are feeling on the day. The snakeskin pattern is 80’s chic and very easy to wear.

  5. Black rib bandeau tie side swimsuit – £36 This is a classic black swimsuit with a twist. This will suit all body shapes and add glamour to any day besides the pool.


Take a look at the rest of the range from River Island to find your perfect swimsuit. Colourful or plain they have beachwear to make your trip to Bognor feel like 2 weeks in Bermuda.
