It took me around three decades of growing up on Australian beaches and a routine skin cancer screening check to realise that I should have covered up more over the years. I’ve always worn sunscreen, but still hours beneath the hot Australian sun has caused skin damage. An upcoming trip to Singapore prompted me to go searching for a new swimsuit, which led me to SunSoaked sun protective swimwear – a range so good I had to share!
The brand is creating a new genre of swimwear – sun safe chic. It all began in 2012 when founder and designer Kate Davis Steer, recognised that she could buy protective swimwear for her young daughter but not for herself. Anything that offered protection from dangerous UVA and UVB rays was masculine and not remotely stylish. So Kate set about solving the problem, combining her background in design and fashion to develop SunSoaked. It quickly became apparent that Kate was not the only one after stylish, protective swimwear – the brand has developed a cult following by women all over Australia and the world.
“La Dolce Vita” is the apt name of the SunSoaked Spring Summer 2017/18 collection. The range is made up of one and two-pieces as well as swim tops, swim skirts and shorts, swim active and resort wear ideal for mixing and matching. Live the sweet life and go from the beach to the street in luxe Italian, figure enhancing, chlorine resistant lycra. Each piece offers UPF 50+ sun protection, which is the highest possible rating. All that safety doesn’t compromise on style, choose from a range of intricate prints that pay homage to nature or go classic in black.
SunSoaked understands how to make swimsuits to flatter the female form and therefore finding the #ultimateonepiece is a cinch! Available in sizes 8-16, the range offers two way stretch – giving impeccable fit and just the right amount of nip and lift in all the right places. The one-piece swimsuits also incorporate ruching across the torso for a sleek effect.
Summer is almost upon us! Invest in a SunSoaked swimsuit this year and feel confident and protected on the beach. Add some SunSoaked Resort Wear and effortlessly transition your look to the street.
