Whether you're a sporty swimmer or a beach bather, it's all about the swimsuits when it comes to looking great by the water. Hit the pool or the sea in style in one of our trendsetting swimming costumes.
If you're heading on holiday but you're not quite ready for the bikini, women's swimming costumes are a great alternative. Not only do they cover more of the body, but many boast an array of flattering design techniques that'll accentuate your favourite parts and conceal others. A monokini style swimsuit is a great bikini substitute. Look for a style with cutouts, plunge necklines and low backs to keep some of that bikini feel. Features such as ruching and side panels will flatter the body and add some interesting details. Wear yours with a long flowing kaftan and pool sliders for the ultimate holiday look.
If you take more pride in your pool lengths then your sun tan, swimming costumes will give you a better fit and more control in the water. Halter necks styles are perfect for serious swimmers, and padded tops will keep you feeling secure as you glide through the water. If you don't want to forgo some sultry appeal with a full swimsuit then opt for sheer panelling or little design details such as lace up sides and zip-up fronts. These will give you a stylish athletic feel but they won't compromise the secure fit. Wear yours with jogging bottoms to the swimming pool if you're out to exercise, or with a sarong and flip-flops on holiday.
