The Bikini Body...

... have your cake and eat it

Writing this post enormous mid-week brunch feels odd, but for us, rocking your swimsuit or bikini is all about feeling confident and dressing for you. Life is too short for diets and on holiday we want to relax and enjoy good food and excellent wine. Equally, we all want to look and feel our best come B-day so we suggest 2 weeks of Project: Body Beautiful:

Whatever your figure, a perfect posture sheds pounds and adds height. Our favourite fix is Reformer Pilates- pilates exercises gently instructed on reformer machines by softly spoken toned instructors. One class and you feel nipped and tucked in all the right places and 2 inches taller. Book yourself in for 2 classes a week for 2 weeks and you will also feel ultra-toned, full of beans and very long. We love BodyMap with Ronnie for personal tuition and serene surroundings.

It sounds obvious, but it works: drink more water and less salt for 5 days before you fly. Try to eat more brightly coloured vegetables such as red peppers which will give your skin a beautiful natural glow. Exfoliate. And moisturise. Our favourite 2 in 1 product for this is Dead Sea Magik's Sea Salt Brushing which makes your skin look fabulous and no need to do anything other than smile afterwards- does anyone else hate moisturising?

Finishing touches:
What would a rocking bod without a perfect mane, tail and hooves be? We cannot get enough of Ruuby, the beauty concierge literally at your fingertips. Whatever your beauty need, be it a facial, Brazilian, mani-pedi or even a juice delivery this app is a must-download. Appointments are always available immediately- no wait-time necessary and you can either choose by location or yes, they even come to you. Opt for a detox massage with Urban Massage and also book Francesca for her pre-holiday mani/pedi, wax and spray tan package- both in the comfort of your own home. Use code LOVELF (because they love us) for £10 off your first booking.

Dress for you:
Embrace your shape and dress to enhance your best bits. Slim your midriff with the subtle X bandaging of an Amaranthus swimsuit. This is also an excellent shape for those lucky enough to need bust support or merely wish to discreetly draw attention away from your décolletage. Bottoms up: It's simple, slim down with the ladder side briefs or add curves with the ribbon side. Smaller busts can be given a non-surgical boost and wide shoulders are narrowed with the ruched Rosa bandeau whereas the Paeonia wrap-over top adds irresistible curves to the most modest of chests and provides excellent support for the largest. The Lilium multi-tie one-piece is excellent for all figures.

And Lastly:
Enjoy. Hold your head high and eat all the pie. After you look wonderful Day 1, your sun-kissed skin will do all the work for the rest of the week. What's a holiday without ice-cream, plenty of ros
é and a large pair of shades.
