Dreaming of Summer Swimsuit Roundup

Dreaming of Summer – Swimsuit Roundup

All that talk about different holidays on Monday got me dreaming of some time away in the sun, after all, I seem to have spent the last few days as a living icicle, an issue which has taunted me since my fibromyalgia diagnosis. So with the idea of winter sun and dreaming of summer coming our way I have put together some of my favourite ideas forΒ swimsuitsΒ this year.


One thing I learned last year about swimsuits was sometimes looking outside of your normal box can really surprise you and offer up a new idea of what really is the perfect suit for you.

Normally I wouldn't go for something that is quite so patterned or something with a square neck. However, the contrast between white and black really drew my eye to this suit and it is definitely something I could see slipping into a suitcase.

If you are someone who loves colour then this beautiful swimsuit might be for you. Personally, I can imagine it working wonderfully on a tropical beach, surrounded by palm trees, blue sea, sand, perhaps the odd coconut and this beautiful rainbow of a swimsuit.

As someone who isn't too keen on my thighs, I have to admit I try and stick to swimsuits that have a skirt, as they help me feel just a little more confident in what I am wearing. This one in particular also offers ruching that will help distract the eye from any areas you may personally see as a problem.

For those who perhaps want to take the swimming side of being on holiday a little more seriously, be it in the hotel pool or the sea. Then this swimsuit seems to cross the lines of being both, great for more serious swimming as well as looking stylish.

So there are a few swimsuit ideas I think might be perfect for this year, but what you do think of them? Do any, in particular, take your fancy?

    I found myself sucking in my tummy as I read this! πŸ™‚ I don’t like my inner thighs so I always go for a skirted suit. The Tutti Fruitti suit is calling my name. I love the color, the design – I love it all! Ruching always helps!

  2. robin rue

    I love that rainbow one. I am so looking forward to summer. It’s been a brutal winter so far.

  3. candy

    Don’t know if I am ready to think about swimsuits just yet. Wonderful to see the one piece suits and all the different styles and colors choices for this coming season.

  4. Sarah Honey

    Hopefully, this winter will go by quickly and summer will be here sooner. These are some great swimsuits for summer.

  5. Amber Myers

    These are all such lovely swimsuits. I’d wear any of them. I’m a fan of one pieces. I rarely do two pieces anymore.

  6. Tomi C

    I really like that Gottex Profile Tutti Frutti Skirted Bandeau One Piece. Not the color so much, I prefer blues when it comes to swimsuit but I love that skirt on that suit. Oh Summer, come quickly. This winter has been a beast.

  7. Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    Summer seems so far away, with the cold we’ve been experiencing here in Florida! Of course it really won’t be that long before we’ll be swimsuit shopping. These are cute!!

  8. Yeah Lifestyle

    What a great round-up. Like you, the one piece Gottex Profile Tutti Frutti Skirted Bandeau seems like the best fit for me.

  9. Joanna

    I love the first one, it could have been perfect for the holiday I just returned from, in Mexico. It was so hard finding a bathing suit in the shops in December, I wish I would have bought one online.

  10. Olivia

    Oh my, I am so in love with Charmline Rainbow Concert One Piece, it’s so up my street! I love swimming costumes that suck you in a little too.

  11. Ben

    I love that swimsuits are more in style nowadays. Never was a big fan of bikinis. (Although it like literally doesn’t matter to me^^)

  12. Karyl | Karyl's Kulinary Krusade

    These are all really cute swimsuits…I haven’t bought a one-piece in ages. I love the black and white one the best. I love the bold print, and it’s very flattering

  13. Katrina Jean Carter

    I am right here with you! I love summer and i would so wear swimswear all day everyday if I can. My favorite is the black and white with square neck. I completely agree with your statement regarding it. I picked it becaue it’s feminine, sexy, yet modest!

  14. Cris F

    They’re all lovely, but I, too, really love the rainbow one. The colors just speak to me!

  15. Marysa

    Those are all cute suits! I am not much of a swimmer, but both my kids are on swim team, so they spend many, many hours at the pool. It would be nice to have a cute suit for myself!

  16. Natalie

    I love all of your swimsuit picks! I am seriously longing for summer weather and sunshine!

  17. Pam

    I really like that skirted bandeau one piece. It’s a really pretty color and the ruching is extremely flattering.

  18. Mimi Green

    Last year I tried out a one piece for the first time ever. This year I’m going to get off my lazy tail and work out a little so I can comfortably get back in my two pieces.

  19. Angelic Sinova

    The Gottex Profile Illuminate Sports High Neck One Piece is my favorite! So cute. I know I’m in the minority but I LOVE winter and the colder weather (summer is my least favorite season).

  20. Kita Bryant

    These are all really cute. I really can’t wait for swimming.

  21. Christy

    I can’t wait for a bit of sun! I love the pink swimdress personally, it looks like it would be very flattering for both stomach and thighs (which is definitely what I need!). I usually wear a plain black swimsuit and I might be adventurous this year and buy something with a bit more colour.

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      It is so nice isn’t it, definitely something that would be a bit more flattering, though I could probably be with it being in a different colour I’m not particularly a pink person lol.

  22. Rhian Westbury

    Oh I really like the pink swimming suit, esp as it seems quite covered up which is always what I want x

  23. Rebecca Smith

    That Tutti Frutti Skirted Bandeau is calling my name! I can’t wait for summer..is that bad?

  24. Dee Jackson

    I really can’t wait for summer. I’m really liking the rainbow one. So cute.

  25. Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes

    I am really looking forward to summer! You have found some stunning pieces, I love the high neck swimsuit πŸ™‚

  26. Chubskulit Rose

    Winter have just begun on my side of the world but I am dreaming of summer too. Those are nice swimsuits!

  27. Scott

    I do hope swimsuit season gets here soon. It’s only January and I’m already tired of the winter weather!

  28. forkwardthinkingfoodinista

    I am deffo dreaming of Summer and these costumes, the last one I really like x

  29. Emily

    Oh yes, this winter is brutal with the cold weather! I am for sure looking forward to summer. I am loving that pink swimsuit with the little skirt attached to it. That one seems like I can chase my kids around and not worry about my swimsuit showing off more than it should.

  30. Dogvills

    I love the Gottex Star Fame Square Neck One Piece swimsuit! I love the design because it is so unique. The skirted bandeau looks cute too. I can’t believe I am looking at swimsuits in the dead of winter! Makes me wish it was summer already.

  31. Emma-Louise Dean

    These are some beautiful swimsuits – I’m especially loving the rainbow one! Honestly I can’t wait for it to warm up a bit more and maybe get a holiday abroad in – we need some sun asap! xo

  32. Mayah Camara

    These are some really nice swim suits I love the black one with the rainbow neck. I can’t wait for the summer to come!

  33. Cindy Gordon

    These are some really cute bathing suits! I could use a new one.

  34. ricci

    I can’t believe summer/swimsuit season is coming!! I love the pink ruffle bottom swimsuit the best!!

  35. Rachel

    I’m so longing for some sunshine! I think the square neck is my favourite – it would result in the most flattering tan lines ?

  36. staciistaysea

    Charlime Rainbow may be for me cuz I do love me some colors, nice blog

  37. Miranda-Anosa @AJD (@MyraBev)

    Ohh dear, I feel you! I am super over dreaming of summer and the beach as well. These swimsuits are all gorgeous and I want to have all of them!

  38. Stargazer Writes

    The high neck is the one that appealed to me most. Though all of them look gorgeous! I will check them out.

  39. Deborah Butler (@SuperBusyMum)

    I am dreaming of sunshine myself – plus – my freckles are in serious need of a top up! Some lovely swimsuit choices there!

  40. Lynn

    I just started looking at swimsuits the other day for a beach trip I have in April. Thanks for more inspiration!

  41. Linda Hobbis

    I like all of those – have to confess I don’t feel totally comfy in a bikini these days – it’s too cold in the UK in any case! One pieces are much more flattering.

  42. Laura | What's Hot? (@WhatsHotBlog)

    This is a great selection! My favourite piece has to be the black one with the fluorescent straps across the chest, I’d be happy to wear that in the pool πŸ™‚

  43. Jeanette Leighton

    I like number 4 but I don’t really do swimsuits only when swimming in the local pool

  44. Aduke Schulist

    I like these suits. I need a new one. I normally just wear two piece suits.

  45. Ashton Gibbs

    These are all beautiful choices! I particularly love the pattern on the first one, plus black is always my safe colour. πŸ˜‰

  46. beccajtalbot

    I have to admit Sarah, I’m not usually a fan of the one piece swimming cossi – but I love the Profile Illuminate Sports High Neck One Piece you’ve pulled out here! The pattern is awesome, a great take on the traditional black cossi x
