Take the Plunge

With summer fast approaching, the idea of wearing swimwear can send many of us into hibernation.  But never fear, this year the womanwithdrive team has the ultimate list of the most flattering bathers on the market.  So all you need to do is sit back, soak up some sun and sip on a cocktail.


1)    Miracle Suit


As the name suggests, this is a miracle swimsuit that guarantees to make you look 10 pounds lighter.  We went to David Jones to see if this swimwear lived up to its claims.  Well, we were pleasantly surprised!  Not only did it make us feel skinnier and give great shape, we were even confident enough to step out of the fitting room and model it for the sales staff!





2)   Zimmermann Instinct Ruched Balcony One Piece


Perfect for those of us with a smaller bust, this gorgeous rum-coloured balconette swimsuit has mesh ruched detailing on the bust and moulded underwire cups to give the illusion of a fuller chest.  The colour also reminds us of a fine drop of red wine, which is a good sign.





3)   Norma Kamali Ruched One-Shoulder Bikini or Swimsuit


Comfort has never looked more stylish than with Norma Kamali – the queen of figure-sculpting swimwear.  Whether you opt for a bikini or one-piece, you’re guaranteed to step out in style.  For those who want to show some skin, but still leave something to the imagination, then the bikini is perfect.  The top is elegant and chic, while the boy-leg bottoms provide enough coverage without looking like grandma’s bloomers.

Beyoncé has even been spotted rocking a Norma Kamali swimsuit. If we can look as good as her in this, then we’ll be happy!







4)   Melissa Odabash Bahamas Ruched Bandeau Swimsuit


The perfect swimsuit for soaking up some sun or sitting poolside in sheer style. This ’50s-inspired black swimsuit is flattering and stylish at the same time.  Channel your inner movie star and team with a floppy sunhat and some designer sunglasses – then book a ticket to St Tropez!





5)   Beth Richards Faye Mesh-Paneled Swimsuit 


Beth Richard’s designs bring sophistication back to the beach.  Her collection shows that you don’t need to bare all in a string bikini to look super sexy.  This black one-piece is a contemporary take on a classic cut.  You’re guaranteed to look cool and stylish, and it also doubles as a bodysuit after dark, the perfect multi-tasker.





6)   Nancy Ganz Mauritius Swimsuit


Nancy Ganz is the master of illusion and if her infamous shape-wear is anything to go by, then her swimwear is sure to be a success.  It’s shape-wear in disguise.  It holds you in and tightens you up – without having to go to the gym!
