Time for a Change

Day 21: Best Beachwear Cheat

Most of us have a bit of our body we like the least. For me it’s my legs, specifically my upper thighs, and they are the bit of my body that I am most self conscious about. So what to do on the beach? Of course sarongs are always handy and are a great cover up for legs when strolling round the pol or wandering along the beach, but sarongs are not practical for swimming or water parks!

Last year I had the brainwave of buying some long surfer shorts for girls.

Modern, cool, funky and flattering – I love them. Team them with a bikini top or, for more cover up, a tankini. Animal, Roxy, Quiksilver, Billabong O’Neill all have great surfers shorts for girls.
