|Glamming it up by the pool in Thailand|
On a friend's recommendation I went to check out the togs at Scally & Trombone on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy. It was a truly momentous occasion because it was the first time in my life I have ever tried on swimmers and thought they looked OK, in fact more than OK - and it is thanks to Esther Williams Swimwear. The world's most famous and glamorous mermaid has designed some truly amazing pieces.
I purchased a Classic 1-Piece Sheath and am so happy that I did. It is a halter neck and has gorgeous 40s-style ruching down the front. The best bit about this particular suit is that is that it gives you curves, flattens your tummy and holds you bosoms in the right place! There are loads of fabrics to choose from but it's the inside where the magic happens. The construction of the suit is a work of engineering genius. Everything is sewn into the suit - no little cup inserts floating around - and the stitching is reinforced with extra pieces in all the right places to give you great shape and support. It's like putting on a pair of magic pants - shoving everything into the right corners - but it's still very comfortable.

For the Melbourne ladies Scally & Trombone don't have many styles left at the moment but they are expecting a delivery in the next week or two so be quick because this summer's best kept secret has just been blown!
