Must have swimwear styles

Swimwear trends can be confusing and seem to constantly change. We're here to help! From velvet one pieces, high cut bottoms and tummy control tankinis, these are the swimwear trends you should try this year.

    High Waisted Bottoms

    High waisted bikini bottoms are becoming increasingly popular year to year. These swimsuits are great if you’re looking for more coverage than a regular bikini bottom, and a figure flattering cut. They’re a great style on every woman because they smooth out your tummy and accentuate your waist. The extra fabric and higher rise allows you to feel more comfortable and confident while still showing off some skin.

    Our range of high waisted bikini bottoms are fabricated with double stitching in all of the seams around the legs and waist for a secure and durable style that will last. Most of our high waisted styles have a mix of ruching, panelling, power mesh and two layers of materials, designed to keep you fully supported.

    Ruffles are very popular at the moment, especially in swimwear. They’re a gorgeous and feminine addition to any swimsuit, and as an added bonus they’re incredibly flattering. Ruffles are an easy way to disguise parts of the body you don’t necessarily like, such as the stomach and bust. 

    Our most popular ruffle swimsuits would be the 3 Tier Tankinis and One Pieces, available in a wide variety of colours and prints. The swimsuits have a v-neckline to compliment the ruffles cascading over the front of the body, covering the bust, stomach and hips.

    Tummy Control Swimwear

    Tummy control is a concern many women have when buying swimwear, leading to a surge in flattering and stylish tummy control swimwear. If you are self conscious of your stomach, or are looking to define your waistline, tummy control swimwear is a great option. A good tummy control swimsuit should have some sort of ruching, especially around the stomach. This feature helps to draw your stomach in, slimming the mid section and shifts focus to other parts of the body. 

    Our range of tummy control swimwear is made with Power Mesh lining to help you feel supported and secure in your bathers. Features such as panelling and ruching help to disguise your waist and stomach area for a comfortable fit that flatters your figure. 

    Another popular style in our tummy control swimwear are the tankinis. Pair them with a high waisted pant for ultimate support and tummy control!

    Long Sleeve Swimsuits

    Long sleeve swimsuits are getting more and more popular, mainly because they’re great for sun protection. As we are understanding more about the dangers of being unprotected in the sun, long sleeve swimsuits are becoming trendy. 

    Our range of long sleeve swimsuits are perfect for sun protection while also being stylish and flattering. Our collection features beautiful colours and prints with unique design features such as waist shaping support and a full length zipper to provide a small amount or maximum coverage. We also have long sleeve rash vests for extra coverage over a bikini top or one piece!

    Velvet Swimsuits

    Velvet swimwear has been around for a couple of years, but people were definitely unsure about it at first. Now, it seems to be a swimwear staple that isn’t going away any time soon. 

    Our velvet one piece swimsuit shows off the velvet fabric beautifully while being extremely flattering and stylish! Available in lilac, pink and aqua there is a colour that everyone will love. They’re incredibly comfortable, with moulded cups and a built-in shelf bra for a supportive fit. They also have nude lining throughout the entire front of the swimsuit for added security!

    High Cut

    Direct from the 80s, high cut bikini bottoms are back in style and shorter than ever! The stylish cut highlights your curves and booty while elongating your legs making them look longer and leaner.

    Our range of high cut bikini bottoms are a comfortable and sexy style that accentuates your waist and curves. They come in a high or low cut option depending on your preference and a range of colours and fabrics. They have a thick band around the waist and underneath is double stitching throughout the seams for added support and structure. Our velvet high cut bikini bottoms are fully lined in nude fabric for extra coverage.

    Multitasking Swimwear

    Another popular trend is multitasking swimwear - aka swimwear that doesn't just have to be worn in the water. One pieces can be worn as bodysuits with pants, skirts or shorts worn over the top for a casual look. Bikini tops can be worn as crop tops, and our bike pants can be worn in the water or to the gym. Our Kaftans can double as a cute coverup to wear to the beach and also as a casual sundress to events afterwards!
