Getting back into a swimsuit after giving birth is nobody’s idea of fun. But if it’s going to happen then you might as well pick one like Beyonce’s. Just three months after the arrival of Blue Ivy, the singer hit the shores of St Barts and showed off her toned figure in a sophisticated and flattering skirted swimsuit.
The panelled one-piece in question is by Norma Kamali (stocked at Browns and Net-a-Porter). But with prices in the £200-300 bracket, you may be looking for something a little more affordable.
Seaspray’s skirted black swimsuit is the by far the best match, and coming in at £78 it’s a bit more accessible. M&S has a selection of flattering styles as does Debenhams, but it’s French label La Redoute which has the best selection of both printed and plain black skirted swimsuits.
I’ve had a hunt around and found the five best in stores now. What’s more they’re all available online so you don’t have to drag your little one around the shops. Simply click through the gallery above.
