1) Buy a new swimsuit; a bikini seems a bit too daring at this time of year unless of course you're somewhere tropical. I don't own any sporty swimsuits and my old cossies are looking a bit the worse for wear as I've had them coming up to 10 years; post baby swimsuits that attempted to cover up my belly. However I think the draping and folding that is usually employed in 'shaping' or 'tummy control' swimwear draws more attention to that area than it detracts.
I'm sure I once read somewhere that, like jeans, you should opt for one size smaller than you usually wear for the most flattering look however for a more definitive guide this 'Swimwear buying guide' from John Lewis is a great resource!
Anyway above I have picked an array of my favourite, spa appropriate, swimsuits; from statement colour blocking, to tantalising mesh inserts, flattering one shoulder styles to stand out animal print. I've actually bought and kept the Debenhams J by Jasper Conran Gazelle print Bandeau swimsuit, as a darker base colour is more flattering on paler skin, and of course it promises tummy control technology!
3) Then I'm going to print off a picture of Margot Robbie, top, and stick it on the wine bottle in the fridge! A sure fire way of reducing the calorie intake before the big reveal. Failing that on the day I'll stay tucked under the complimentary towelling robe wishing I'd had more will power!
