Planning a bit of a health kick in the new year? Why not take advantage of Black Friday to treat yourself to those all important items that will help you set yourself up for a happy and healthy 2018.
Here we've identified everything we think you need to get yourself off on the right foot. So treat yourself, or better still, perhaps send our list on to your loved ones to help them get started on their Christmas shopping a little early (and at significant discount).
For something you'll feel good in EVERY time you put it on: we recommend our best-selling navy cossie. Worn by indoor and outdoor swimmers alike and now available for pre-order in up to size UK 24, this classic cossie is perfect for the weekly swim.
Say goodbye to feeling nervous as you nip from the changing room to the pool - this cossie is designed for your body shape, comfort and confidence.
Available over the Black Friday weekend for £79 (down from £105) with code BLACKFRIDAY25 at checkout and with FREE delivery worldwide - it's a no brainer.
We recently discovered Aqua Sphere's Vista Goggles and fell a bit in love. Big enough to ensure your eyes are fully covered without that awful eye-socket sucking feeling with a smart, slender design so that they don't take up your whole face: these goggles are a leak-free dream.
Handily available in a Navy & Black colourway to suit your navy cossie. Coordinated swim kit? Tick.
Available to buy for £19.99 from Wiggle and keep an eye out for additional Black Friday discounts.
There are a lot of good reasons to wear a swim hat including several benefits to you (keeping hair out of your face, minimising the impact of chlorine on your hair and, if you're an outdoor swimmer, keeping you warm). However there are also important benefits to others of wearing a swim hat (less hair in the pool = much nicer pool). There are plenty of good swim hat manufacturers and we personally like to have a few to hand so that we can coordinate with our cossie of choice.
If you're an outdoor swimmer or a competitive swimmer then a brightly coloured hat is great for safety reasons. If you have long hair then do investigate long hair hat options - there are lots. However, for the weekly pool swim a black basic swim hat is a must. Speedo do a good black silicone hat for less than £3...
Looking for motivation and inspiration for that weekly swim? We couldn't recommend Jenny Landreth's Swell more highly. A dry-witted and poignant account of the many "swim suffragettes" who fought for a woman's right to swim, with snippet's from Landreth's own swim story laced throughout. Swellis a laugh-out-loud and heavy-hearted-sigh kind of book that will leave you desperate to grab your cossie and head to the nearest stretch of water. A perfect partner for a new year swim-kick.
Bloomsbury are offering 45% off Swell until December 10th....
Our unique sizing system was developed to offer a comfortable, sleek and sculpting fit, whatever your shape or size.
We know that no two “size 10” bodies are the same. So we developed a sizing model that is tailored to three different body shapes:
Step One: Pick your usual UK dress size from 8-20.
Step Two: Pick your bust size based on our Muse Measurements system:
|BRA CUP SIZE||AA - B||C - E||F - HH|
So if you typically wear a UK size 14 and wear a 34A bra, you’d order a 14 Hepburn. Likewise if you’re a UK size 10 and wear a 30F bra, you’d order a 10 Hendricks.
All our pieces are designed to offer stretch. However, if you’re in between sizes we recommend sizing up.
If you are very long in the body, we also recommend going up a dress size to offer additional length.
Our Swimbras & Swim Crops are designed to fit snugly so that you feel 100% secure as you move. We have developed a precise Bikini Sizing System to help you identify your correct size.
|BIKINI TOP SIZING||Cup Size|
Band Size (inches)
|26-28||8 Hepburn||8 Monroe||8 Hendricks|
|28-30||10 Hepburn||10 Monroe||10 Hendricks|
|30-32||12 Hepburn||12 Monroe||12 Hendricks|
|34-36||14 Hepburn||14 Monroe||14 Hendricks|
|38-40||16 Hepburn||16 Monroe||16 Hendricks|
|42-44||18 Hepburn||18 Monroe||18 Hendricks|
All our knickers come in standard UK dress sizes from size 8 - 18.
We currently offer all bikinis in sizes 8-18 and all swimsuits in sizes 8-20.
We are very aware that our size range is still relatively limited. We’re a small independent brand, and have focused initially on offering a highly comprehensive and effective set of products to women who wear dress sizes 8-20.
However we are very responsive to demand. If you would like to see more sizes in different types of products please get in touch at email@example.com - we'd love to hear from you.
