  • Think a one-piece is boring? Our pick of glamorous swimsuits will change your mind...

    Bikinis, tankinis, one piece swimsuits…what is your first choice when it comes to swimwear? There are so many variations on the high street these days that when it comes to shopping for your holidays or even just a ‘staycation’, it can be a little overwhelming to say the least. We are huge advocates for the one piece swimsuits – they don’t have to be frumpy or unflattering. Infact, they are more flattering and, in our opinion, the very classiest option for the poolside. Choosing a controlling shape that nips in your least favourite parts is simply an added bonus.

    Strapless, halter neck, underwired and cupped – we have trawled the high street for a range of the very best one piece swimsuits available. And all are available in wonderfully attractive prints or classy block colours. Whichever one you choose we are positive that you will look and feel fabulous by the poolside this summer.

    When deciding on the print you’d like or which colour to go for, make sure it will match your skin tone and won’t wash out your complexion. Black is generally a very safe option to go for if you are relatively tanned. For fairer skin, try going for medium shades such as this coral swimsuit or mid-greens and blues will work really well.

    Another advantage of the one piece swimsuit is that you can hop in and out of the swimming pool or sea, run around after the kids and sit having your lunch feeling one hundred percent confident. There will be non of that shameful flapping and untying of bikini strings that is the source of much poolside embarassment.

    Renowned for their flattering cuts, combined with trend-led shades and detailing, if you’re looking to invest in swimwear with staying power then Seafolly is a no brainer. The coral shade of the Goddess one piece will suit all skin tones and last for many beach breaks to come.
