Swimwear for your 2017 Summer Holidays

Monday, July 03, 2017

With the kid´s summer holidays just around the corner, many of us are preparing for our annual family break. We are busy shopping for clothes for everyone, including swimwear for ourselves. As you can see here, there are some really interesting swimming costumes and bikinis available in the shops.

String bikinis

For those of you with the confidence to wear them, string bikinis are a great option. However, they tend to only be available in smaller sizes. This is primarily because this style of bikini is not a great option for curvier women. String bikini bras have a tendency to slip out of place, which can lead to embarrassing situations.

High waisted bikinis

The good news is that as each year passes more and more designers are including high waisted bikinis in their ranges. These are an especially good option if you feel a little self-conscious about your midriff. If you are going to be running around after the kids or want to enjoy playing beach volleyball or something similar they are one of the best choices. This style of bikini stays in place even if you are very active and offers a good level of support. Quite a few retailers have started to sell their bikinis as separates, which makes it easy to put together the look you really want.

90s inspired one-pieces

Every year, swimwear designers take their inspiration from a different fashion era. For 2017, it is the 90s, which means that high legged one-pieces are once again widely available. These costumes are extremely flattering. They look especially good on women who have long legs.

Cut-out swimming costume

Another trend that is partly inspired by the 90s is cut-out one-pieces. They look interesting, although you need to bear in mind that you are going to end up with an unusual tan if you decide to wear one.

A varied colour palette

For 2017, no one colour dominates. There are a few plain one-pieces and bikinis out there, but brightly coloured swimming costumes that feature bold patterns are set to be more popular.


Most of us like to take something light with us to slip on over our swimwear for when it gets too hot or cool on the beach. For many years, sarongs have been the most popular option. This year, it is cover ups. These lightweight dresses come in a range of styles and lengths, although the longer ones seem to be more widely available. Provided you choose wisely you could potentially wear your cover-up in the evening or at other points during your holiday.

Hat and sunglasses trends

To complete your look why not treat yourself to a new pair of sunglasses and a nice hat. For 2017, large floppy hats are a hot trend. These look especially good when paired with a 90s style swimsuit. All you need to do is to add in a pair of oversized sunglasses to complete your look.

Beach bags

Big beach totes are back in vogue, so you will not have any problem fitting everything into your bag. Thispage gives you a good idea of what is available.
