She confessed that while there are still parts of her body she’s insecure about after her weight loss, the swimsuit helps her to feel more confident.
Linda said, “Yes, there’s still parts of my body I don’t like – like my flabby tummy – but I’ve got a contour swimsuit from Marks & Sparks.”
The swimsuit in question is Marks & Spencer’s Secret Slimming Padded Bandeau Swimsuit. Amazingly, the costume is available for just £25, and it’s particular design promises to hold you in in all the right places.
One customer wrote, ‘Lovely swim suit and it looks so flattering and it is super-comfortable.’
And another agreed, commenting, ‘Being of a fuller figure and not the most confident of people in swimwear because of my size, I was delighted to find this swimsuit. It is very flattering, very comfortable.’
In fact, it has almost achieved a 5*star rating on the website – which certainly sounds like a good thing to us.
Linda revealed that it was her recent two-stone weight loss that finally gave her the confidence to wear something more revealing by the pool.
She said, ‘I’ve spent the last 20 years with a sarong on. But I finally felt confident enough to take it off.
‘There was no Photoshop. I have lots of veins but my legs look really good in that picture, so I decided to post it. I’ve just turned 60 and I feel better and fitter than I did at 50. And I’m really proud.’
Previously, Linda revealed that she has cut sugar and alcohol out of her diet in order to lose the weight, while also following a low-calorie food plan.
She also shared that she walks 10,000 steps a day, and partakes in regular spinning classes.
The Loose Women panellist told the Mirror, “I can’t believe I haven’t had a glass of wine for over a year,
“Now I still go out, but I have sparkling water instead and I honestly don’t miss wine at all.”
