Holiday wardrobe and the joys of being ‘traditionally built!’

Its so exciting choosing what to pack and wear for a holiday! I love to see Coral Bay and Peyia, ‘lit up’ with the happy villa holiday guests, in their colourful ‘holiday clothes’ – especially at night when the ladies ‘dress up’ and look amazing!

Living here, its hard to know what to wear for work in the hot sun too! I’m very English and old school and couldn’t even wear open toe sandals to the office for  many years : it felt ‘wrong’ and not wearing a jacket, felt positively outrageous! Life has moved on now and with temperatures hitting the late 40s in the high season, work clothes have had to adapt – though not quite to the point of the skimpy holiday gear!

I was laughing with a lady today in Phillipos in Coral Bay. She was looking for a bikini as she’d forgotten to pack hers. It didn’t matter to her, she said, while she was in the privacy of her chosen rental villa (!) but she and her family were planning a trip to the beach so she thought she’d better ‘wrap up’ so to speak! Good job too. Many people don’t!

Being a lady of generous curves, I shared with her the challenges of shopping here for swimwear which covers but feels comfortable – and those of seeing the ‘thing thongs’ parading poolside and the beaches! The world is full of different people  of differing shapes!

In good shape are our holiday villas with private pools, including the lovely 3 bedroomed Karens Sunshine Villa which has very special offers on for May and June! In not so good shape is me after the months of recovery from spinal fractures BUT I’ve promised myself getting sunshine fit is my next task – and I’m eternally grateful for my ‘family bottom’ which helped me bounce the steps when I fell. Could have been so very much worse!

If you’re choosing holiday clothes and are looking for somewhere to show them off, come to Cyprus! With tons of wonderful deals on offer, I’m sure you’ll find an attractive villa in a desirable area, which deserves you looking wonderful! Email to me on and I’ll share all with you! (now what do I wear to walk the seafront ? )
