Swim Guide Summer 2021

 We love Summer! As soon as we see the leaves come back on the Frangipani trees and change the air con from hot to cool, we get excited about what the new season will bring. No matter your age, Summer brings a feeling of hope and positivity to our lives as we peel off the layers of the cooler months and embrace the thought of the new.

Back when we used to buy magazines, my favourites were always the swimsuit editions, with beautiful editorials of idyllic island scenes featuring the new colours and prints of the season. I was instantly transported to the sunny locales and couldn’t wait to shop for a pretty new swimsuit or five.

That excitement has never left me, and I look forward to fresh new swimwear releases each Summer, wondering what new colours and prints I’ll be hitting the beach in.

Let me share my excitement as I take you through the new prints of Summer 2021.

 

Classic Black and White

Let’s start our journey on the sophisticated side, with the classic combination of black and white. The traditional monochromatic colour scheme is timeless and suits everyone. While it is considered a safe option in fashion, it needn’t be boring.

The Acapulco Black and White swim collection features a predominately black base with pops for white accent to show off design details. What elevates it from being boring is the embossed, textured fabric.

The subtle self-print creates interest and gives the fabric structure, while differentiating it from other simple black swimsuits. You’ll love the way you feel in the luxurious fabric in swimsuit styles that hug your curves and work for your unique body type.

Animal Print

Animal print returned to the fashion scene with a roar and is here to stay for eternity. It has become such a sartorial staple that it’s even considered a neutral. We love animal print for swimwear and offer a selection of designs to suit your taste.

The sustainable Leopard swimwear collection is our first foray into recycled swim fabrics. We have partnered with Repreve, who save tonnes of plastic waste from going to landfill each year by transforming recycled plastic into luxurious swim fabric.

Our Leopard is the perfect classic animal print in universally flattering warm tones with pops of black. The collection includes a variety of swimsuit styles to suit all shapes and sizes with a selection extending to size 26.

If big cat prints aren’t your thing, why not try a reptile print? We offer the Turquoise Snake collection for lovers of subtle animal prints and beautiful tropical colours. The deep turquoise shade suits all skin tones with the black reptile print providing depth and interest. Embrace your wild side this summer with a fabulous animal print from our stunning collection.

Floral

It wouldn’t be a summer swimwear collection without florals. Florals have become a staple print in swimwear each season. They allow us to deliver beautiful colour palettes and stunning shapes that work beautifully for swimsuit design.

Our first floral for the season is Corsica. A stylised floral with a black base, Corsica is the perfect floral for those who want to move on from block colours and experience the joy of a beautiful, printed swimsuit. With pops of black and a pretty pink border, the Corsica swim separates can be paired with classic black pieces to create your ideal swim set.

Dropping later in the season is the Positano collection. This romantic print with large, soft blooms, comes in two colour ways. Positano Black is a striking floral with a black base featuring bursts of lilac and aqua flowers. This collection features many of our best selling styles and will become a summer favourite.

Positano White is the alternative colour way, offering a softer version of the large-scale floral design. A winter white base sets the scene for the subdued pink, apricot, and mauve flowers. Pops of sage and antique gold foliage further create a harmonious colour palette that adds romance and femininity to your summer days.

Paisley

Paisley prints pop up in swimwear collections from time to time, receiving a very warm welcome with every launch. An alternate to florals, paisley prints offer a way to showcase an intricate design and seasonal colour palette, and work beautifully with swim styles.

This summer our Santorini Blue collection presents a classic paisley print in blue tones inspired by the idyllic waters of the Greek Isles. This is the ultimate summer blue that suits everyone and sets of the bronzed tones of sun-kissed skin.

Be warned. Once you experience your first swimsuit, you won’t be able to stop at just one piece from the Santorini Blue paisley collection. The way this print and colour combination looks against your skin, you’ll want more and more.

Tropical

What is a summer swim collection without a tropical print? We love a tropical inspired print that showcases island foliage and colour combinations. Tropical prints are not limited to green palm fronds, but take inspiration from the many wonderful islands and their often lush landscapes.

The Molokai tropical print does exactly that. Inspired by the colours and shapes of the Hawaiian island, Molokai features a black base with pops of jewel tones and the moody blues of deep ocean waters.

The foliage and flowers are inspired by the lush forests found in these rich, fertile islands, and translate beautifully into swimwear designs that showcase this stunning tropical print. You’ll fall deeply in love with the Molokai collection in our best-selling swimwear separates.

Retro

Swimwear and Retro prints are a match made in heaven. Channel vintage vibes with a cute swimsuit in a fun, retro print.

Navy and White Polkadots never go out of style, and our collection of swimsuits in this classic retro print are among our best-selling pieces. Just a step up from a block colour, the Navy and White print is a timeless colour combination that never goes out of style and looks fresh on everyone.

Want something with a little more pop? Retro Floral will launch this summer in styles that bring 50s poolside glamour into present day fashion. Figure hugging styles that feature retro design elements are presented in the cutest floral print. Pastel flowers take centre stage with pops of candy pink accents to bring you a fresh take on vintage style this summer.

If Our Swimwear Could Talk

October 19, 2021 4 min read

In a moment of Friday frivolity here at Curvy HQ, we found ourselves wondering “What would our swimsuits tell us if they could talk?” Hilarity, and a little inappropriateness ensued, as we envisaged our swimwear chatting away to one another on holidays. With no other pressing engagements to occupy our time, we decided to compile a list of our best-selling swimsuits and imagined what their personality traits would be.
