It’s summertime again and whether you’re looking for trendy new swimwear or a classic swimming costume you can enjoy for years to come, we have something for everyone from our favourite swimwear stores.
Start planning for long summer days lounging at the pool or start the countdown to beach days with a swimsuit that suits your budget and your style.
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.
- Ruche Mesh Lined Swimsuit R 399.00- R429, Woolworths
- Belted Polka Dot Swimsuit R 399.00 – R429, Woolworths
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.
- Animal Print One-piece Swimwear R179.99, MRP
- High waisted bikini bottom R99.99, MRP
- One shoulder bikini top R99.99 Tops, MRP
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
- High waist bikini white and black R299, Superbalist
- Crop bikini top R299, Superbalist
- Scoop neck one-piece – black and gold R599, Superbalist
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.
- Shweshwekini activewear maruha swimsuit blue-black R850, Zando
- Thabooty’s my little secret monokini black R389, Zando
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.
