Nothing is more versatile than a blank bandeau one-piece. With a flattering high-leg opening, and silicone taping at inside cups to keep the swimsuit in place, this is a great staple.

Hunza G

A fashion-pack favourite, Hunza G's iconic crinkle bikinis and swimsuits are a sartorial staple.

Xandra Crinkled Bikini SetSelfridges

We especially love the white for a chic look this summer. The design features a scoop-neck top that drops from thick shoulder straps and high-leg bikini bottoms.

Osiris Frilled-Trim Bikini SetSelfridges

In a flattering high-waisted style, Frankies Bikinis have created a two-piece that is reminiscent of a classic 80s style. We love the pop of blue and blue bandeau design.

Pucci

Nothing say's 'holiday-mode' quite like the iconic Pucci prints, ideally worn with oversized sunglasses and matching sarongs.

A plunging open-back style with swirls in mauve hues, Pucci's vibrant swimsuits are a cool-girl must-have.

Marmo Knotted Printed Bandeau Bikini TopNet-A-Porter

If the idea of a patterned one-piece feels intimidating, shop the Marmo printed bandeau, complete with a sweet bow at the centre. Pair with black or white briefs, if you're after something simple, or the matching bikini briefs if you want to go all out.

H&M

A high-street favourite, you can't beat H&M for elegantly designed affordable swimsuits.

Non-Padded Bikini TopH&M
Price: £12.99

We're particularly enjoying this yellow bikini for an extra touch of elegance, making it look so much more expensive than it is (and butter yellow is the 'it' colour right now).

With over 350 positive reviews, this striped swimsuit is a firm best-seller. It's fully lined with a square-shaped neckline, and the cups feature removable inserts that provide ample support. It also offers the perfect dosage of French girl chic.

Mango

Apart from stocking the best wedding guest dresses on the high-street (there, we said it) Mango's swimwear selection is brilliant, with a variety of two-piece bikinis and swimsuits at affordable prices.

Swimsuit With Asymmetrical OpeningMango

For something in between a one-piece and a bikini, opt for Mango's swimsuit featuring an asymmetric cut-out.

Marks and Spencer

Okay - M&S might not be the first thing that enters your mind when conjuring up images of 'cool' bikini brands, but hear us out. The brand's best-selling tummy-control swimsuits are out of this world, well-loved by influencers (Vogue Williams is a huge fan) and fashion editors alike.

The tummy-control technology is designed to flatter you from every angle, leaving a smooth finish. Red is a must for this season, and this style - like most of M&S's - is available from 8 to 24.

Marks & Spencer's scallop plunge swimsuit is already selling fast, with hundreds of positive reviews. If you don't fancy the orange, you can shop it in pink, purple and black, too.

Strapless MonokiniSKIMS

A great alternative to a one-piece or two-piece swimsuit, a monokini is cheeky, with bold cut-put details at the front and back. Make sure to size up for the perfect fit.

Signature Swim Triangle TopSKIMS

You can't go wrong with the classic Signature Triangle, available six limited-edition shades as well as two classic shades.

Marysia

Another industry favourite, the scallop edges synonymous with Marysia are not only a beautiful finish but also make for swimwear that doesn't cut in, meaning you'll always be comfortable.

boden stripe swimsuitJohn Lewis

This sell-out swimsuit comes in plenty of colourways and remains one of the most flattering cuts out there.

Navy is a shade that's so easy to wear, perfect for summer days lounging by the pool. We enjoy the ruffled and contrast embroidery on this one-piece.

This season, swimwear is all about embracing bold prints, vibrant colours, and flattering cuts. High-cut bikini bottoms are making a major comeback, elongating the legs for a super flattering look.

One-shoulder and asymmetrical silhouettes are also having a moment, adding a touch of chic elegance to your ensemble. And for those who prefer a bit more coverage, one-piece swimsuits with plunging necklines and belted waists are stealing the spotlight this year.

How do I choose the perfect swimwear for my body type?

Finding the perfect swimwear for your body type is all about knowing what works best for your shape. If you have a fuller bust, look for swimsuits with built-in underwire or adjustable straps for added support. Our guide to the best swimsuits for big boobs can help. For those with a smaller bust, opt for styles with ruffles, padding, or bold prints to create the illusion of volume.

And, If you're pear-shaped, choose swim bottoms with higher-cut legs to elongate your silhouette, while those with an athletic build can rock bandeau tops and high-waisted bottoms to accentuate their curves.
