Top 10 Swimsuits Online

Because bikinis aren’t your only option…

Right about now, you’re probably thinking about your summer holidays. Either they’re booked and you’ve started the ‘don’t come near me with that chocolate’ campaign or you’re still wondering where to go. Whatever your current scenario, you’ll be needing some swimwear STAT. Lest we forget, the best stuff always sells out by the time we’re actually setting off on our trips. Avoid being the one wearing last year’s washed-out swimwear and pick your fancy from the below. This time around, we’re focusing on one-piece options, because let’s face it, sometimes you’re just not in the mood to bare your midriff on a beach full of bronzed, Mediterranean bodies. Still though, no need to feel frumpy or unfashionable. Behold, our 10 online favourites.

If you’re feeling in any way insecure about stepping out onto the sand, there’s nothing like a bit of ruching to give you a confidence boost; it hides everything. But just because you’re playing tricks with material doesn’t mean you have to forgo a swimsuit that looks sexy at the same time. $98.50, Victoria’s Secret

There’s nothing quite as flattering for the bust – whether you’re bigger-boobed or flat-chested – than a halter neck. If your boobs are big this will give you a nice structure, if they’re small it will give you a little boost. And pastels work wonders with a tan. €47.82 Asos.com

This navy little number boasts a secret slimming feature with a ruched bandau, perfect for those who want to keep their tums under wraps and their boobs happy too. €40 M&S

For the girl who can’t get enough of floral patterns, but doesn’t quite want to go for a bikini, this Topshop beauty will leave your two-piece-wearing friends feeling envious. €36, Topshop.com

You might want to cover your tummy, but you might be super proud of your boobs. A plunging neckline is super sexy and again, this works well no matter what your cup size. €24.59 Asos.com

So you want to look like a Bond girl? Look no further. $78.50, Victoria’s Secret

For those after a touch of vintage, this swimsuit gives the illusion of an old-school two-piece €36, Topshop.com

This swimsuit is very clever. The black panelling on the sides give a slimming effect, meanwhile the aztec pattern leaves you feeling fashion forward. €56.01, Asos.com

If you’re not a bit happy with your bum, you’ll be pleased to know you can cover it up with these gorgeous satin shorts. Matching the suit to the shorts gives the effect of a skirted one-piece. Swimsuit €39.99, Satin shorts €24.99 both H&M

For girls who want to create the illusion of curves, thiis swimsuit with a frill detail is as pretty as is it sexy. We love. €24.99 H&M

Asos swimsuit options, M&S, Topshop, H&M, Victoria’s Secret
