Home for the Holidays

If you’re taking time out for a stay-cay this summer, make it feel like a special occasion with a beautiful new swimsuit. Whether you’re hosting a pool party or simply lounging around in the comfort of your own home, slipping into a swimsuit that makes you feel fabulous will at to your summer vibes. 

Twist Front Bandeau One Piece

Our crowd favourite is the ideal swimsuit for all occasions, but we especially love it for stay-cays. The twist front bandeau one piece is a stunning strapless swimsuit that feels great to wear. Spending time outside in the sunshine calls for a versatile piece. This one piece offers a stylish option for preventing tan lines and it can be worn as a bodysuit. Wear it with wide leg pants or shorts for when guests come over and you’re ready to go when it’s time to dive in.

One Shoulder One Piece

Just like the twist front bandeau, a one shoulder one piece can be worn as a stylish bodysuit, taking you from cocktail to pool party in a flash. A one shoulder one piece is a sexy option that you can feel confident wearing in your own home or out and about. Throw on a beautiful summer skirt to complete your stay cay look and head to your favourite local bar or restaurant for a fabulous night out.

Beachside Getaway

It’s no secret that Australia is blessed with some of the most spectacular beaches in the world. Our beachside towns and cities are set up for locals and visitors to enjoy the natural beauty of our coastlines as well as all the delights of shopping and dining. Pack your bag with stylish swimwear to take you from the beach, to lunch, to sundowners, or out and about exploring your new surroundings.

Frill Sleeve One Piece

Beach holidays mean long days in the sunshine. Protect yourself from the hot, summer sun with a practical and stylish swimsuit that offers coverage for your back and shoulders. Our frill sleeve one piece protects your back, shoulders and chest with a zip front option for high neck coverage and cute flutter sleeves. Throw on a pair of stylish shorts and feel fabulous walking around town or to and from the beach.

Crop Wrap Top

Bikini lovers will adore the crop wrap top. This bikini top alternative offers excellent sun protection with coverage for the upper back and shoulders. You’ll feel confident with a little less skin showing but with the same fun bikini girl vibes. This top looks great with a high waisted pant or skirt if you’re heading out to lunch or a browse at the local markets.

Cruising in Style

Cruising is back for summer and new swimwear is essential if you’re setting sail. You’re going to want swimwear that you can confidently walk about in on the boat with complimentary beachwear and coverups to complete your look. While you can wear regular swimwear at your beachside stops, we strongly recommend chlorine resistant fabrics for pools and spas on the boat. These areas will use pool chemicals that can be damaging to regular swim fabrics.

Chlorine Resistant Swim Dress

A swim dress is a fabulous cruising swimsuit. Not only are our chlorine resistant swim dresses safe for public pools and heated spas, but the style offers excellent coverage while heading to and from the pool area. You’ll feel confident and comfortable with the coverage the skirt offers for your curves, booty, and upper thighs.

Chorine Resistant 3 Tier Tankini Top

This fabulous 3 tier tankini doubles as a top, so you can travel a little lighter with a versatile piece. The chlorine resistant fabric will protect your top from harsh pool chemicals and the damaging effects of heated spas. The ruffle design gives you confidence to move about the ship without feeling self-conscious of your bust, belly, and hips. After lounging by the pool all day, throw on a pair of wide leg pants and head to dinner in style.

Island Vacation

Whether it’s the Whitsundays, Indonesia, or French Polynesia, an island getaway requires very little luggage. Surrender to island life and relax without worrying about what other people think and embrace the beach girl you’ve always dreamed of being. Now is the time for bikinis and skimpy cut swimwear, leaving your cares and insecurities on the mainland.


Every body is a bikini body. We’ve said it before and we’ll continue shouting it from the rooftops – if you have a bikini and you have a body, you have a bikini body! An island getaway is the ideal time to show a little more skin. It’s easy to find a secluded spot to bare your body or join in with everyone else leaving their cares behind. Island life is free of judgement and you’re encouraged to let your hair down and live a little carefree. Fortunately our bikini collection includes a wide variety of styles tailored to your bikini dreams.

Rash Vest

Island holidays are not just about lazing the day away on the beach. It’s also a great time to try new water sports. You’ll be spending long hours in the hot sun, kayaking, snorkelling, or exploring other ways to enjoy your island adventure, so a practical cover up is essential. A rash vest is perfect to throw on over your bikini when the rays are little too much. They will also help to keep you warm if you’re spending time in and on the water.
