Though the dreary weather could have you fooled, summer is almost here, bringing with it beach days galore! And if there’s anything we Aussies do well, it’s swimwear. With our proximity to some of the finest beaches in the world, it’s no wonder we’re also home to some of the best swimwear on the market. Whether your preference is classic and timeless, or you have a penchant for itty bitty 'kinis with too many straps and graphic prints; if you have big boobs or size inclusivity is your top priority, there’s really no need to look beyond our humble shores.
Now, we know that swimmers tend to pile up, but because they’re something we’re not likely to toss away in a hurry (shout out to the 10-year-old tankini I never quite gave up on), they’re generally something worth investing a little more time and money into. Plus, they’re generally pretty stretchy and can grow with you more than other wardrobe items.
From the perfect one-piece to statement bikinis, the right swimmers are out there for you — it’s just a matter of knowing where to look. Ahead, we nail down our all-time favourite Australian swimwear brands.
