Sun, surf and sea is finally upon us. Although we all love the sunshine, the holidays, the longer days and nights, summer also brings along that dreaded swimwear devil. This year however, trends have never been kinder to all shapes and sizes. For instance, one-piece swimsuits have drastically moved from being labelled as the dowdy choice for the older lady and instead the fresh alternative to a bikini for younger bodies. Fun graphics and cut-out designs ensure just the right amount of flesh is exposed for a youthful look while ruching and block-colour continue to flatter women of all ages.
Still a very popular choice with young mums and fuller figures, tankinis bring an added confidence to beachwear especially for women reluctant to expose their tums. Bikinis however still remain the number one in the swimwear category yet there’s a significant move towards change. High-waisted 50’s designs and sport-inspired looks mash-up the usual string and teeny -weeny bikinis of the past.
It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and leave your distressed black swimsuit far behind.
