Scorching hot: the best swimwear trends for summer 2019
Raise your hand if you've ever felt personally victimised by a change room mirror while trying on swimwear? Alongside trying on jeans, it's just one of those activities that most women are hard-wired to hate. It might have something to do with the fact that in years gone by, teeny tiny string bikinis have been all the rage, and the thought of squeezing into one of those (with fluroescent lighting pointing out our flaws) is enough for us to steer clear of the beach completely.
Thankfully, swimwear is changing; trends are becoming more modest, more chic and more universally flattering. Finally!
Regardless of whether you're a one- or two-piece kinda gal, there's a whole new collection of trends to try. The ones we're loving most?
- Dark floral
- Neutral tones
- Frills of all sizes
- '50s-inspired shapes
