Swapping grey skies and puddles for turquoise seas and white-sand beaches? We’re so jealous! A winter escape is the best way to banish the post-Christmas blues, bar none.
But when you’ve been used to covering up in jumpers, the idea of wearing next-to-nothing in public can give you a hefty dose pre-holiday wardrobe anxiety. How can you ensure you look fabulous on the beach and still enjoy the season of excess? Does anywhere even sell fashionable swimwear at this time of year?
Relax, winter beach babes. Pour Moi has you covered. We’re famous for our well-made bikinis and swimsuits in fabrics designed to hug your curves without sagging. Our fashion-led styles are bursting with features to help them fit and flatter, leaving you to enjoy mince pie season guilt-free. And unlike the rest of the high street, we realise that people travel at all times of the year, not just three months in the summer.
We also know that the confidence you get when you feel good on the beach is priceless. So with that in mind, we’ve created a list of items that’ll help you pack for your hard-earned holiday like a winter sun pro. From swimming costumes and tankinis to bikinis and playsuits, stash these in your little wheelie suitcase to keep all eyes glued to your sunlounger.
The bikini to help you get the perfect tan
If you’re heading off on a short winter break, the Heatwave strapless bikini will ensure you make the most of every second in the sun. Even better than a bandeau bikini when it comes to maximising your tan, the sweetheart neckline avoids those annoying white patches in the middle. And while the zesty shade looks great when you’re golden, print is far more forgiving on paler skin tones at the start of your holiday.
The instant-confidence swimsuit
It’s hard to tuck into a club sandwich by your hotel pool when you’re worried about your swimsuit digging in or creating bulges. You’ll look forward to your winter break a whole lot more when you’ve got the Orchid Luxe Wrap Belted Control Swimsuit packed in your suitcase. With a gorgeous flower power print, it has a stylish tie belt to highlight your waist, moulded pads for extra shaping and a tummy control swimwear panel to hold you in. Voila! A super-sculpted beach silhouette in seconds.
The beachwear that does double-duty
Everyone needs some stylish cover-up in their beach bag, so shield yourself against the rays with this Embroidered Crinkle Bardot beach playsuit. A real winter sun essential, wear with flat sandals and your hair down in beachy waves by day. But for a night time look that’s perfect for a pool party, pair with platform heels and a sleek blow-dry. And if you get it now, you’ll be able to wear it long before the summer fashion-pack get their hands on it next year.
The go-to bikini
The ideal bikini is one that dresses up the good bits and diverts attention from the rest. The Capri bikini set does all that, but adds an extra helping of high-fashion into the mix. Ruffles are a massive swimwear trend at the moment, but the Capri’s gentle frills are also super flattering because of the way they skim over your body without clinging. And because it has underwire for extra shaping, even larger cup sizes can wear its light, triangle style and still feel supported.
The A-list swimsuit
Five-star hotels, celeb-style yachts... If you know your winter break is going to be glamorous, the Castaway Adjustable Halter Underwired Swimsuit swimming costume is a must. Everything about it is high-end, from the gorgeous crochet lace to the daring mesh panels. Worn with mirrored shades and statement jewellery, it has everything you need to bring out your inner beach goddess. And, with its luxe, crochet lace, this suit will only add to your glow.
The beach-to-bar tankini
There’s nothing like a tankini to help you fully relax on your winter sun holiday. But the Hot Spots underwired tankini top can take your pool-side confidence up a few extra notches. Halter neck tops are fabulous for giving you a killer cleavage, but our beautifully boho ditsy print version comes with a built-in underwired bra to help you feel extra-secure. So roll it up to get some sun, roll it down to stroll to the beach bar. However you choose to wear it, you’ll find that full coverage has never looked so flattering!
