Looking good and feeling great in your swimwear is always easier when we feel confident in ourselves. So, lucky for us, lingerie and swimwear expert – and one of our esteemed Designers at Debenhams – Aliza Reger popped into Debenhams last week for a twitter takeover, to offer us a few solutions for summer… #AskAliza
Twitter: I’m currently sporting a nice tummy due to childbirth. Any swimwear you can recommend?
Aliza: I would recommend these two designs – especially the dark floral number as this is really flattering - http://bit.ly/ZXS8Qc and http://bit.ly/10YMy3a
Twitter: I’m off to Ibiza this summer – what are the hottest beach trends I should be wearing?
Aliza: Hot pink is always good; add black shades for the perfect look! Go for bright colours, big floppy hat and big shades. What about this bikini >> http://bit.ly/YhdYO3
Twitter: What influenced your latest collection?
Aliza: Flattering colours for tropical destinations with that uber-glam 50’s vibe!
Twitter: I’m not really sure how I’d look in a sarong on the beach – any tips?
Aliza: My top tip for beachwear is keep it simple and always keep a sarong, like this one, in your beach bag >> http://bit.ly/151rM47
Twitter: Any tips for dark colours like navy or black? Help – these tones make me feel less conspicuous!
Aliza: A top tip from me is a swimsuit will hide sins around the tummy area, be more flattering and make you feel more confident!
Twitter: I like to wear black at the start of the holiday and brighter colours or white once I’m tanned. Do you have any cute bikini options?
Aliza: I agree black is always flattering and white looks great with a tan! What about this? >> http://bit.ly/10uNZ1S
Twitter: Do you prefer bikinis or a one piece?
Aliza: I’d choose a style with in-built tummy control for extra confidence. Try this style >> http://bit.ly/ZXUbDS
My takeover has come to an end. My final top tip is to book a summer holiday and take a range of swimwear from my collection Reger by Janet Reger – don’t forget your suncream…
Top tip from Aliza: ’Fit’ is important with swimwear just as much as lingerie, so make sure you get yourself measured in store!
