These days there are styles and fabrics in swimwear that support and flatter fuller figures as well as cuts that create curves for the slim. This season’s hottest looks are neon bright abstracts and colour blocks, botanicals, jungle foliage and colour pop florals. Styles include retro-look longline bikini tops and shorts which are great for swimming, bandeaus for evenly tanned shoulders, gathered fabrics to cleverly disguise any lumps and bumps and ties to add pretty detail.
