Fashion trends come and go and then just when you think you will never see a trend return, it does just that. Just like corduroy jeans that were so popular in the 80's have crept back on the racks this winter.

For years we watched swimwear get smaller and skimpier as the years went by. Tiny swimsuits are not for everyone, and the retro/vintage vibe pieces have been making their appearance in current collections and many women are embracing the extra coverage and confidence that this brings.

Here are a few fabulous options that definitely provide that retro luxe vibe.

This pretty floral bikini is from SUNMARIN®. The pant is a generous cut with an attached gathered overskirt which provides a nice bit of coverage!

The beautiful full pant and little capped sleeve of this stunning set from SUNFLAIR® captures a true vintage look with superior comfort and fit.

Another fuller pant option, this time the addition of some rich colours certainly makes this SUNFLAIR® style a true winner.

A modern tankini provides a vintage vibe with its longer length top. This great one from SUNMARIN® provides great coverage with comfort and style.

Finally a monochrome skirted swimsuit covers all the things you want to hide but lets you look like a vintage goddess at the same time. This stunner from SUNFLAIR® will also provide great bust support and comfort.

Vintage style elements open the door to so many more women being able to wear a bikini with confidence and its a trend we hope to see continue in the years ahead.

Most women find shopping for a swimsuit a rather confronting ordeal. There are so many reasons why our bodies do not look toned and smooth like we wish they did. Lack of confidence to display our lumps and bumps in public, see too many ladies choose not to enjoy swimming and splashing in the water.

We should be proud of our bodies regardless of what they look like. Unfortunately we are constantly bombarded with images of perfect looking females. Our confidence is eroded, but all is not lost. A skirted swimsuit could be the perfect solution!

There are two types of skirted swimsuits. One is a one-piece swimsuit that has a skirt permanently attached. The other option is a tankini style which simply means the top and bottom are two separate pieces.

In the past skirted swimsuits were pretty much reserved for larger, older women. These days they are available from size 10 and with modern prints they will cover the tummy and upper thighs and look very stylish in the process.

This classy navy and white swimsuit from SUNFLAIR® is a tankini style with a separate pant. Available from size 10 to 24 with cup size up to an E. Soft cups make this a very comfortable wear. Adjustable straps will ensure you get yours swimsuit to fit perfectly and XTRA LIFE® fabric inclusion will ensure it retains its beautiful shape after lots of swims.

This super smart style from SUNFLAIR® is a traditional skirted swimsuit and is all one piece. Available in steel grey/white and also a red/white combination. Sizes 10-24 with cups up to an E. Features include soft cups for comfort and a lower cut back. This style also includes XTRA LIFE® for long life wearing

This beautiful bright option is from SUNMARIN® and is a tankini style with a separate pant. Soft cups and adjustable straps guarantee comfort and great fit. Available from size 10 to 22 and up to a F cup.

As you can see these 3 swimsuit options provide fantastic coverage and will give you the freedom to enjoy time in the water without being so conscious of your shape.

If its just your tummy area that gives you concern, you can greatly expand the options available by trying on a more traditional tankini that includes a looser top and we have plenty of those available for you to discover at your closest boutique.

A great swimsuit can make all the difference when it comes to feeling confident and looking great when at the beach or by the pool. Good swimwear are made from quality fabric, have excellent cuts and can last for many years if looked after correctly.

Great swimsuits are an investment piece and should be treated with respect. In return they will provide you with years of swimming fun and the care instructions are included on the tag. Unfortunately most people will not even glance at it and throw the tag straight in the bin.

Follow these simple guidelines and you will extend the life of your gorgeous swimsuit tremendously.

  1. When applying sunscreen try and avoid applying it directly on to the swimsuit.
  2. Immediately after swimming rinse the swimsuit in clean water.
  3. As soon as possible, make sure your swimsuit is hand washed in warm water at approximately 30C using a mild washing liquid. If you do use powder washing detergent, ensure that all the product is completely dissolved before submerging the swimsuit in to it.
  4. Make sure you rinse well in clean water to remove any traces of detergent.
  5. Do not wring out the swimsuit to help it dry faster, you can press it gently in between a folded towel to remove excess water and then simply hang up and let it drip dry.
  6. Do not dry in the sun to speed up the drying process.

Consistently following the above guidelines will make a huge difference in extending the lifespan of your stunning swimsuit.

If you swim regularly especially in a heated pool you will really benefit from including a swimsuit in your collection that is made from chlorine resistant fabric. This innovative fabric is very resistant to chlorine damage, is super comfortable to wear and has the shortest drying time. Here is a snapshot of some of the great designs currently available:-
