Just recently, Loose Women star Linda Robson wowed the internet after posted a picture of herself in a flattering blue swimsuit.
The 60-year-old showed off her enviable figure in the one-piece, after her recent dramatic two-stone weight loss.
Fans flocked to the stunning image of Linda on her sunny holiday, to praise her newly-won figure. However, many were also left fascinated by her slimming choice of swimming costume.
Hundreds of fans hurried to the picture, to comment on how wondeful Linda looked - and ask about her choice of swimwear.
One wrote, 'I think you look fabulous in your swim suit Linda ❤ it an absolutely gorgeous picture'. While another commented, 'You look amazing! Wheres the swimsuit from? I need it!'
And luckily for us, and all fans of Linda out there, the mum-of-three has revealed that she snapped up the figure-hugging costume from Marks & Spencer.
The swimsuit in question is Marks & Spencer's Secret Slimming Padded Bandeau Swimsuit - and it's actually one of the retailer's best-sellers.
M&S confirmed that the slimming suit is a bestseller in their swimwear range, and has proven popular with customers for a while now.
Amazingly, the much-loved costume is available for just £25, and it's particular design promises to hold you in in all the right places.We don't need any more convincing!
Linda has confessed in that past 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.
She 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."
According to M&S, 'This swimsuit uses our innovative secret slimming technology, where an inner layer of control fabric holds and flatters the figure.'
The suit is currently available in almost all sizes, from an 8 - 22. The costume is also available in some plus sizes, (online only) 18-24. Sizes 26 to 28 have now sold out.
But you needn't only take Linda's word for it. The clearly popular suit has also won itself a wave of positive reviews on the M&S website.
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.”
