An introduction to swimwear

I had my first introduction to the art of swimwear this Friday, over a Shoreditch breakfast with the lovely Ruth from Olga Olsson and my two Digit fashion buddies – Alexis and Nomfundo.

For such a small piece of clothing, an awful lot of care and time goes into creating a swimsuit. In fact, probably almost as much time and anxiety as it takes the average girl to find a swimsuit that she feels comfortable in.

We’d probably all save a bit of time (and pain) if we were able to take Ruth along with us to the annual swimwear shopping trip. After years of helping customers find the perfect swimsuit for their shape, it only takes her a matter of seconds to recommend what would suit us girls, despite the fact we are clad in multiple layers of clothing.

It helps that her collection of luxury swimwear is full of highly desirable pieces with designs to suit all body shapes and style preferences. My favourite piece was the Marilyn sweetheart ruched one piece whilst Alexis had her eye on the lovely high-waisted Lara bikini.

It is true that these pieces will set you back more than your average M&S cossie – my current swimsuit did only cost me £15 after all – but alongside making you feel more confident, the Olga Olsson pieces are made with environmentally responsible materials and techniques where possible.
