While our friends back home are getting ready to wrap up warm for winter, we are getting ready to hit the beach…woohoo!! Perfect weather season is just around the corner girls, giving us an excellent excuse to go shopping for new beachwear, yay!
I must confess I don’t enjoy shopping for swimsuits; sometimes it can feel like an endless task just trying to find one that fits! I’m sure I’m not alone in this quest to find the perfect one piece, so we’ve sought out some of the best (not on the high-street) brands you need to know about.
If you’re looking for on-trend or classic, petite or plus size, these boutique stores have got you covered…in all the right places!
Last minute pool day or staycay planned? The despair when you realise you’re in dire need of new beachwear but have zero time to hit the malls…
Like a kind of swimwear superhero Sand Dollar is here to the rescue delivering all your swimwear needs to your door within 3 hours of purchase and what’s more, the driver will hang around while you try on your chosen items, so go ahead and order two or even three sizes…now this is service!
Sand Dollar is confident they can offer something for everyone, bringing a mix of luxury items as well as one-off pieces sure not to be seen on anyone else. They don’t stop at bikinis, tankinis or one-pieces, you can shop beach kaftans, dresses, jumpsuits, accessories, shoes and more!

TKD hails itself as the first lingerie store in the region to cater for those of us who’ve been blessed with big boobs…these ladies know how to create a stunning swimwear collection whatever your cup size!
Specially designed for women with cup sizes from D to K, TKD has made sure you’ll no longer need to feel shy on the beach with their gorgeous range of stylish swimwear for the curvy girl.
If you like a bit of boho chic, then you’ll love the Rush bikini and tankini styles. With soft crocheted fabric, gold eyelets and ties, plenty of must-have shapes and multiway options and some very clever panelling, we think this is a style staple for this season.
Or if you’ve been looking for a bandeau style bikini to escape those pesky tan lines then check out the Marina’s smooth, sleek fabric, sophisticated style, inner moulded cups with gathered outer fabric which creates a perfect shape while giving you maximum support in a strapless style.
