    Editor’s Note

    I have tried on a Hunza G before. I bought one because I’d been influenced and the colour was incredible (the costumes have a huge selection of colours available). I absolutely loved it but didn’t feel all that supported. 

    Hunza G’s seersucker swimsuits were a big deal in the eighties and are now a popular brand with the fashion pack. This red and white design is part of the new season collection and is crafted from the textured fabric, and shaped into an all-in-one bandeau silhouette that’s doused in nautical-inspired stripes.

    Editor’s Note

    Wow! Calling all big busted ladies – I’ve found the most dreamy swimsuit. Say goodbye to frumpy styles and say hello to this neon pink number. Prepare to have everyone green with envy poolside. 

    This swimsuit really is something. If you thought the Hunza G style was just for the small breasted ladies, think again. This supportive underwired swimsuit is made with the same much-loved textured fabric on its best-selling Cancun swimsuit and it’s definitely going to fly off the virtual rails.

    I have this swimsuit from last year as they brought it out in a gorgeous candyfloss pink shade. I do have to say I adore this green and think it’ll look divine in the sunshine. 

    The textured fabric mixed with the one shoulder design equals a very stylish swimsuit. It’s designed in a regular fit, with added stretch for comfort. It also features Sun Smart technology which helps to protect skin against harmful UV rays.

    Cupshe is a very popular brand across the globe and it’s easy to see why! There are so many options when it comes to swimwear and the price point is very good, as is the quality.

    This is giving major Hunza G vibes with the neon bright colours – which I love. I’ve read the reviews and they’re a real mix – but those who love it, love it. 

    This sexy scoop back swimsuit is absolutely gorgeous and comes in an array of colours. It features removable padding for support and shape. This would look great with a pair of denim shorts and a bright linen shirt.

    I absolutely adore Seafolly and I would probably say it’s my favourite swimwear brand. I just think you can’t go wrong and there are plenty of stylish one-pieces to choose from. They are quite expensive but I have some that I have worn for years and years and they’re still excellent. 

    Made from the on-trend textured fabric, Seafolly’s Sea Dive one-piece swimsuit has a simple, no-frills design. What’s more, if you love it, you’ve got three other colours to choose from.
