Get Inspired and See How our Swimwear Looks on Everyday Women - Different Shapes and Sizes
Sometimes is re-assuring and confidence building to see how other women look in their swimwear. We relate to others that we see ourselves in, even if it's just a little. It really does help. That's where our Cossie Confidence Crew comes in. Our #CossieConfidence initiative was started to inspire and encourage women to get into their bathers, to live their best summer, making wonderful memories with family and friends. The Crew volunteer their time to do this and do an incredible job. You will see them in various photos and wearing different swimsuits in our store and in the blog. If you want to see them all and know more about them, then head over to the Cossie Confidence website by clicking here and on Instagram too. The girls would love to see you and you might just get that confidence boost enough to get you living your best summer too. What have you got to lose? See the girls in action in the video below!

For further inspiration and style advice, relax and kick back in the Summer Oasis Blog. Our easy to throw together Looks will show you how to pull it all together and look great on your next precious summer break. It makes packing a breeze.

Get Social With Us! If you're social (and we are too), then pop over to Facebook and Instagram where we mostly hang out the most.

Need to go a bit deeper? Why not book a 1:1 Fitting Online! More and more is being done on video and via video conferencing these days.

"Hello Girls at Sequins and Sand! I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your wonderful service! From the kind, down-to-earth, detailed language you use to describe your products on the website, to the cute wrapping, bow and personalised note that you include in the package. I have had a great experience ordering from you and would 100% recommend you to all my family and friends! The postage was so quick and I definitely appreciated that it was free. It gave me such peace of mind when I placed my order that I would be able to send them back for a refund at no expense to myself.

The quality of the cozzies that I ordered are of such high quality and I am going to be feeling so happy and confident 'strutting my stuff' on the beach during my upcoming holiday! Thank you again and you can definitely take pride in the top quality service and products that you provide. Lauren. "
"Dear Anita and girls, received my cossie, the morning after placing my order, love it! Packaged beautifully further enhancing the buying experience which never disappoints.
Quality products, especially for the curvy girls, informative descriptions, great sizing tips and good photos making shopping so easy. Thanks for your efforts they are greatly appreciated.
Have a great summer, Therese. "
"See what you've done to me!! I used to be the person with the horrible old
one and only boring swimsuit, worn year in and year out till it fell off.
Now here I am taking 3 possibly 4 swimsuits to Bali!! Am I being greedy -
well of course but you make me feel okay about it and all your gorgeous
swimmers, I just can't resist. Kaye "
