Marie Helvin said: ‘Who says women should be denied the right to wear a bikini just because of their age?
‘It’s not as though the only options out there are tiny string bikinis – there is so much choice now for women thanks to sites like isme.com, and they put so much technology into today’s designs.
‘Like every woman I’ve gone through the experience of my body changing with time.
‘As the years go by you get to know yourself better, and learn what works for you.
‘It becomes even more important to find clothes that fit, flatter and help overcome the confidence issues that all women share.’
