Make a Splash This Summer - NEW Mermaid Swimwear is in!

Anita McLachlan - 17th October 2020

Bring your inner Mermaid out to play this summer with a brilliant blue swimsuit from the new Mermaid Collection. Includes plus sizes too.

The new Mermaid Swimwear collection is delightful. In brilliant blue hues with highlights of pink it, beckons us to summery fun and play.

A small collection of just 4 pieces each available in Sizes 10-22 so included plus sizes too. There's also a swimsuit for bust prosthesis if you've had a mastectomy. Let's take a closer look:

Bandeau One Piece
Straps on or off? That's the biggest decision you'll need to make with this one piece. A great All Rounder as we like to call it here at S&S HQ. Why? Because it works on just about everyone. It's a style we've stocked for 10+ years for that reason. And it's just fabulous in this super summery print. Look for Liz in the listing. She's there to show you what it looks like on a fuller tummy shape. She's also a DD cup and a size 18. Thanks Liz.

Sleeveless Zip Up One Piece - Post Mastectomy option too
With it's higher neckline, easy access zip up front and bust pouches for prosthesis, this stylish one piece ticks a lot of boxes. There's no ruching in the tummy with this one so if you've got a shape that doesn't need much ruching or you prefer a smoother look to your swimwear then this is one to check out. Great support for swimming laps and on that SUP.

3 Tier Tankini Top
In our #1 selling style for those who are tummy conscious, the 3 Tier is a trusty tankini option. Team it with a Turquoise, Navy or Black bikini bottom as all 3 colours are in the print. Less black in the print than blue tones.

Want a bit more leg coverage with your pairing? Then there are Navy and Black swimshorts in our range from different labels that will work well. Find them all here.

Short Sleeve Rashie
Top off your Mermaid cossie of choice with a matching Rashie. Too much matchy-moo for you? Then team it with the new Turquoise Honeycomb one piece or tankini. It's a perfect match. This print will also go back with Navy one pieces and Tankini tops for a more subdued pairing. Black is an option as well, as there's a little bit of black in the print.

Style Your Mermaid Effortlessly With...
A Beach Overshirt in White, Navy or Black for a great match. These are selling really well because they are made from cool light cotton and area a semi-relaxed fit. A good length to about the knee and can be dressed up to take out when you add a cotton slip underneath.

The large cotton sarongs also come in White, Black, Navy and Turquoise for another easy to add option.

The short Mesh Tie skirts are a nifty option too if you don't want the fullness of a large sarong. Again in White, Black and Navy. Too easy!

There is much brewing with new stock landing every week now.
Top Tip. If you love something you see, then get in early girls. This is not a pushy sales pitch. I wouldn't insult your intelligence with that. But this summer is different on so many levels due to Coronavirus. Labels have cut back production due to the uncertainty. Many run a 'just in time' inventory too doing smaller runs of production more often as stock runs out. It's often a good risk management strategy and helps with cashflow BUT with India and SE Asia struggling to manufacture AND international freight delays at times, there is much uncertainty around stock availability. Just something to keep in mind.

Thanks! I look forward to seeing you Friday. If we can be of any assistance, to help you find your inner Mermaid, then please reach out. There are many ways to get the help you need, and they're all right here in The Change Room - even a Size Calculator! If you're ready to go, shop away below!
