The grown-up’s guide to swimwear (it’s all about the one-piece)

LONG gone are the days of nipping to the high street and grabbing a bikini off the peg.

While I may have pangs for those days of cheap and cheerful two pieces, I’ve entered a whole new world – where investing in a flattering swimming costume is not only a necessity but the chicest option.

Which is a result, as one-pieces are definitely having a moment right now.

Current labels to know include Marysia and their scalloped designs, retro eighties stripes from Solid & Striped and the perfect fit, mix and match pieces at Prism (which I am currently lusting after). FYI, the most Instagrammed bikinis are courtesy of Kiini – which has a very Copacabana beach feel.

Even the most body confident amongst us probably wouldn’t say no to a little bit of help in the swimsuit area.

So here are some of the most flattering swimsuits available right now – some aren’t cheap, but this is one area where cheap won’t always cut it.

    Love the khaki in the middle…but not sure I’ll need it for a week in Inverness in September?? Maybe next year when we have Portugal in our sights 😉
