I have been toying with this big pants look for a while now. I love the practicality as the higher cut holds everything in, great when you have to chase after two kids on a beach. Not sure if ‘big pants’ is the right description though?

I spend a lot of time bending down, picking up some random sand toys or suncream and no amount of pilates has completely dealt with my mum tum.

I do love a good swimming costume, but I also like a tanned tummy… that’s where I started looking at the over-sized pants or boy pants.

I love this look paired with a vest or shirt .

My favourite is this one from Ripcurl, called the Bomb. I love the sporty edge and the higher chest coverage is great as this area often just burns- I don’t like too much sun on this area.

ASOS and Matches  have a wide selection at great prices . This time of the year is often a great time to grab a bargain.
