It’s swimsuit season, finally! While it’s still unclear whether exotic getaways will be an option this year, that’s no reason not to relax by the pool on a luscious staycation (hold tight, I’m working on a top holidays close to home post!). With the shops only recently opening up again, there are some amazing deals on, well, everything! But I can’t resist picking up a new bikini or swimming costume when the summer season hits. These are my absolute favourite picks from across the internet.
I don’t think leopard print will ever go out of style and this Next swimsuit with its plunging neckline is super-flattering.
Floral zip front plunge swimsuit, Marks & Spencer
It was so hard to pick from the M&S Swimwear collection because there are so many gorgeous choices (and they’re all selling out so quickly!). I like the soft blues and pinks along with the zip detail on this one.
Tummy control wrap bandeau swimsuit, Marks & Spencer
£12 (was £28)
I prefer to wear white towards the end of the summer so this M&S number is just perfect, especially because of its reinforcement around the tummy area.
Edge colour block shaping swimsuit, Figleaves
Figleaves specialise in flattering figures, so I have no doubt the lines of this swimsuit are cut to flatter! Plus, who doesn’t look chic in black and grey?!
Black Elasticated Scuba Sponge Swimsuit, River Island
River Island isn’t one I usually think of for swimwear but the black and gold contrast on this one really caught my eye. We all know black is slimming, so why not have fun with it too?
Oseree are a French swimwear brand I’ve got my eye on, as colour-blocks are so on-trend right now. It’s so cool that they have a mini-me collection for kids too.
Martha maillot navy, Casa Raki
Keep things close to home and sustainable with this one-piece from the London designers at Casa Raki. The colour is so classic and the frill around the middle is perfect for highlighting the slimmest part of your body.
Double strap textured swimsuit, Whistles
£65 (was £75)
Want to make a statement with your swimwear? Red is always the way to go. This Whistles costume has such a classic shape to it. I love it.
Blue printed halterneck swim dress, Sainsburys
Finally, if you’re after something cute that’s magically flattering around the waist and upper thigh area, Sainsburys swim dresses fit the bill.
