#LBBPicks: Swimwear and Cover-Ups For The Summer

    Whether you’re hitting your trusted neighbourhood club, a 5-star hotel, or Croatia {courtesy Game of Thrones}, you’re going to need something to swim in. So, we’re giving you a bunch of other recommendations and websites to check out.

    PS: This story was done in association with Wear is the Discussion, an invite-only fashion portal. So think of this as first-hand advice from a bunch of people who take their clothing very seriously.

    The Beach Company

    An extensive range of swimwear, beachwear and most importantly holiday fashion, The Beach Company is outdoing itself not only when it comes to clothing, but also with accessories. Goggles and scuba wear will also ensure that you feel the sea over and under.

    Holidae

    Providing holiday clothing only for women, this store covers everything from resort wear to winter stuff. We particularly liked their beach and swimwear. The sarongs and kaftans are perfect for travellers, and the range is expansive enough to pick and choose from.

    Pretty Secrets

    We see awesome cuts and styles for those who have been looking forward to this swim season. Find a bikini you see yourself lounging in, or choose from the selection of tankinis if that floats your boat. And if you must have style, we hear there’s peplum on a one-piece.

    A relatively new store, the best news yet {we’re looking at our hips while writing this}, is that they will customise your swimwear basis your measurements. Hallelujah.

    Speedo

    Speedo has our vote for support, longevity, and overall functionality. Although the racer backs aren’t exactly what you’d call ‘holiday swimwear’, if you’re training, or swimming as a workout, you cannot top these.

    PALM Swimwear

    Another Australian brand that’s creating waves in the swimwear segment is PALM Swimwear. They ship their beautiful minimalistic designs all over the globe, which means more for you and me. If chic cuts and neutral colours do it for you, then log on right now. This is your sign.

    PDA

    PDA does customised costumes which can be used as dancing leotards or swimming costumes. They have a wide range of designs and colours, all of which are customisable, just so you can have that perfect fit and design. We absolutely love their LEO504 and customers are loving the ‘promo’. They have a cash on delivery and prepaid service, all over the country. This has us swimming in joy.

    Zivame
