Cos(sies) you're worth it: 5 Hot Swimwear Brands
At age 27 I declared that I was too old for bikinis.
Now don’t take my word for it, there are many hot mamas rocking two-pieces right into their 90’s. But if like me you adore the comfort and ease of the one-piece - and the guilt-free joy of your third round of patatas fritas on the beach as much as you cherish independent designers - then this article, my friend is for you.
These swimsuits are rubbish. Literally.
Batoko is a British brand producing irresistible cossies made from 100% recycled plastic waste that would have otherwise been headed for landfill and our oceans.
Despite having the resources and tech available, only 10% of plastic is getting recycled. But Batoko are out to change that with their line of affordable swimsuits for grown-ups and kids.
Cute and conscious.

Polish-born, Marysia Dobrzanska Reeves, former ballerina and longtime surfer spent most of her time wearing leotards and wetsuits. Now based in LA, she’s translated her early uniforms into a modern swimwear collection.
Made from premium Italian fabrics, the swimwear is cut by hand and has attracted some big cheese fans including Lupita Nyong’o and Gwynny.
Not cheap, but cheerful. I like this one in Yolk pink and red colours, $329.00 at marysia.com
It is on good authority that I say to you that this green stripe swimsuit is an excellently flattering cut.
Les Girls Les Boys calls itself un-filtered, un-pretentious and honest and a brand that challenges out-dated ideas and established norms.
So there you have it, brains and beauty. Get yours £90 lesgirlslesboys.com
I’ve included the Ayla Savannah Frill Swimsuit here because I’m being a good girl and this is a feature on cossies. BUT I am also physically attached in body and mind to this halter / high-waisted trousers look below.
They recommend pairing with Coronas and tacos which is definitely something I can get behind.
