Have yourself a slimmer summer with our top picks of slimming holiday essentials

Have yourself a slimmer summer with a few simple outfit tips.

Upcoming holiday? But not quite feeling your best… we know how you feel. With a few simple outfit tricks and tips we’ll have you feeling ready for the sun in no time.


Now this is seriously the best slimming holiday essential you need! A control swimsuit. Swimsuits are seriously having a moment! They seem to be more favoured over bikinis this summer and are all over the high street. With so many different styles to choose from you need to narrow it down to the designs that promise to contour and control whilst maintaining comfort like the Seaspray one below.


Another slimming holiday essential you need, a maxi dress. Always our go-to hero outfit when it comes to the summer, so easy to slip on and also super flattering. If you have a bigger tummy then opt for a style that has either ruching or a knot detail like the one below to hug your curves in the right places. If you thighs are the problem or you are not keen on getting your legs out a maxi dress with a pleated bottom will skim over your bum and thighs perfectly – one with a waist belt will also nip you in perfectly.


Elongate your legs by adding a pair of wedges to either maxi dress or summer floaty dress. Wearing them under a wide legged pair of trousers will not only make your legs appear endless, they will save you having to take them up if they are too long.


If you want to give yourself a bit of height whilst lounging around the pool but don’t fancy donning a pair of wedges with your swimsuit then try out a pair of flatforms. We love this silver Topshop pair!


A floppy hat will not only protect your face from the sun, choosing one with a large brim will also balance out your proportions if you have large hips – double win.


Happy shopping!
