The Swimsuit Is Back
From poolside lounging to beachside dipping, the swimsuit has never been sexier. It oozes confidence and while we don’t actually expect to be doing any swimming in it, you will look good sunbathing, poolside cocktail-ing and it will even double up as a bodysuit paired with your favourite trousers and tailored jacket.
Swimsuits have gained popularity from the recent fitness movement and athleisure. They have also become a favourite piece to wear at festivals, teamed with shorts and wellies.
From a plunging neckline to a high leg, a low cut back to cut out panels, there are a variety of styles to choose whatever your body shape or age. So, despite women previously opting for a one piece over a bikini to hide body parts, the swimsuit is all about flattering the body.
The swimsuit that goes beyond the beach. It’s sexy, powerful and timeless. Don’t forget to accessorise it! Take a look at some of our favourites….
