Swimwear Trends for 2022. What's Your Favourite?

2022 Swimwear Trends We Love

Fashion moves fast. It can be hard to keep up. Fortunately, while still following general fashion trends, swimwear remains relatively consistent. New styles and trends are launched each season, but they tend to be a slow evolution from the previous collection.

2022 brings new trends and resurrects others to create a collection of swim styles to suit everyone. Here at Curvy Swimwear, we have embraced the new while staying true to what sets our brand apart. Our customers can be assured that regardless of trends, our swimsuits have been designed with their needs in mind.

It’s time to discover what to expect over the next few months as we launch new styles, colours, and prints to elevate your swim wardrobe.

Frills and ruffles have grown in popularity over the last few seasons, leading to a major trend in swim for 2022. Whether you opt for a subtle swish or a full body frill-fest, a swimsuit featuring ruffles will see you rocking the romantic trend with style and confidence.

Pretty colours and prints enhance the romantic feel of frilly swimsuits, serving fresh, feminine vibes for the beach or pool. Watercolour prints in soft reds and pink, dreamy lilacs, and delicate florals, set the tone for our romantic ruffled swimsuits.

The popularity of exercising in water is increasing each season, as more folks are discovering the low impact benefits of swimming, water aerobics, and deep water running. Training in public pools with extra chemicals and heat require a chlorine resistant swimsuit in an athletic shape that is easy to move in.

The demand for more chlorine resistant styles and prints, sees us growing our collection of athletic swimsuits to meet the needs of our customers. This year, you’ll find our best sellers reimagined in florals and fresh colours, with new styles added to the ever-increasing popular range.

Strapless, off the shoulder, and one shoulder styles are always in style when it comes to swimwear. Whether it’s to prevent tan lines or show off your shoulders, these styles add a sexy sophistication to your swim wardrobe.

2022 sees a resurgence in shoulder baring styles with frill bikini tops, bandeau one pieces, off the shoulder tankinis, and one shoulder swimsuits, just to name a few. You’ll find these stunning styles in textured fabrics, prints, and metallics, with shades to suit every fashion taste.

Matchy Matchy

The family matchy matchy trend of recent years is showing no signs of slowing down. Parents and kids love feeling connected by fashion, with co-ordinating swimsuits that create a sense of unity and whole lot of fun.

Creating a mummy and me look with matching prints and swimsuits has never been easier. This season we see an increase in styles available for children with an extensive offering of adult swimwear in the same collections. Have fun with your mini me as you both enjoy wearing quality swimsuits in beautiful fabrics.

Swimwear design has always looked to the past for inspiration. The glamour of the 50s and 60s is evident each season as we use figure hugging and timeless elements from this era of classic design. Whether it’s a vintage print or hourglass silhouette, retro style is alive and well in 2022.

Here at Curvy Swimwear, our retro collection is growing considerably, with a high demand for vintage shapes and prints. In 2022 you’ll see anything from very literal pinup inspired swimsuits with low leg lines in retro prints, to subtle takes on classic poolside glamour. With an emphasis on waist shaping, curve loving styles, our retro collection has something to suit everyone.
