Pink Salt Swim
We love the eye-catching swimwear from local label Pink Salt Swim, which creates beautiful pieces with one-of-a-kind digital prints. Designed in modern yet modest silhouettes, strategically placed colour block panels also help to create the illusion of a slimmer silhouette (yes, please!) Prices range from $109 for a strapless bandeau swimsuit to $159 for a halter bikini swimwear set, with sizes ranging from a UK 6 to 14.
Shop online at pinksaltswim.co or at What Women Want, Mandarin Gallery and Yacht 21, Wheelock Place.

We love the bold and colourful prints from K.Blu Swim, which launched onto our shores in 2014. Available in seriously chic prints and silhouettes (check out the crossover bikini sets and ruffled off-shoulder one piece), there’s nothing not to love from this local label. What’s more, K.Blu is just about to launch its first Curve collection this November. For a limited time, you can trade in your old swimwear (size UK 14 and above) for them to fit you with a new special swimsuit. Participants will receive a limited edition K.Blu beach kaftan, special discount codes and first dibs on the new collection.
