Swimwear shopping is right up there with jeans shopping and bra shopping – a haunting and yet necessary evil for all involved. But this summer’s hottest swimwear trend not only looks super cool and can be snapped up on a budget, but it looks bloody gorgeous on everyone (or at least we think so!).
Your summer 2022 BFF? The humble textured swimsuit. Made Insta-famous by Hunza G, the sustainable British brand that first burst onto the scene a couple of years ago, the textured – or shirred – swimsuit is the trend that’s sweeping the online high street right now.
I wore a hot pink dupe by River Island on my recent holiday and felt fantastic, despite being dubious about how the fabric would work on curves and rolls. I saw a few other women around the pool in similar styles – some one-pieces and some in bikinis – and thought it looked bloody gorgeous on every shape and size.
The good news is that there’s loads of colour, shape and price options online right now. George at Asda is leading the cavalry with their range which come in orange, blue, pink, black and later this summer – violet – there’s swimsuits from £14 and mix and match bikinis from £5.
For a classic and universal-shaped swimsuit, Monki whilst Next have a style designed especially with additional support for those with a bust of DD or more.
