Go to Woolworths for timeless classics

From as far back as we can remember, Woolworths has been synonymous with quality. Although their swimsuits are a little on the pricey side, they’re an investment buy and will last you for years with the right care.

Invest in a classic one-piece swimming costume in cute and quirky styles that also come in plus sizes.

MRP is the place to go for trendy swimwear

If you’re looking for this season’s latest trends at affordable prices, MRP never disappoints. Their range of swimwear includes comeback trends like neon and animal print in more shapes and styles than we can wear in one summer.

We absolutely love the high-waisted bikini bottoms you can mix and match with different bikini tops which are sold separately.


Superbalist has so many plus-size options

Usually, we specifically go to plus size stores for the biggest range of plus size fashion, but when it comes to swimwear, Superbalist has curated the most stylish swimsuits this year.

It is so refreshing to see that swimwear designers have realised that plus-size is not a dress size and provided so many different styles. There is definitely something for everyone

Zando has local swimwear brands

Local is lekker and we love the Shweshwekini, it’s fun, stylish and is actually in shweshwe print. Swimwear doesn’t get more patriotic than this.

Our favourite thing about the Shweshwekini range is that they’re a complete outfit all on their own.

Another local favourite is actress, presenter and radio personality Thando Thabethe’s Thabooty’s. If you share Thando’s sexy style and want something a little risqué, Thabooty’s are what you’re looking for in petite and plus sizes.


Real sporting  value at Decathlon

Swimming isn’t all fun and games and if you’re taking your time at the pool seriously, you might want to invest in a swimsuit that is as serious about pool time as you are.

Decathlon has both traditional swimming costumes and modest costumes that cover more skin.
