The Best Black Swimsuit
As Black complements almost every skin tone, it is the most flattering and slimming swimsuit colour. Suiting any age, shape or size, a black swimsuit is just like the LBD, or ‘little black dress’.
Named the LBS, the little black swimsuit is a timeless classic. Fashion trends may come or go but like the LBD, the little black swimsuit never looks outdated.
A black swimsuit will suit any season or occasion.
Whether by the pool, on the beach, paired with denim shorts or for your next holiday, a black swimsuit is effortlessly chic.

The Classic Style
A simple classic cut minimalistic swimsuit will look demure while still giving you that understated wow factor.
Choose a square neckline or a bandeau cut costume- simple, chic, sleek and great for tanning those shoulders!
The Sex Bomb
By drawing the eye to the centre of the chest, a sweetheart neckline oozes subtle sexiness.
If you want to really rock that sexy black swimsuit look then try a deep-plunging V-neckline or a lace-up deep-V neckline.
A cut-out style gives you the feel of wearing a bikini but with the coverage of a one piece, a great halfway mix, creating a super-streamlined, sexy silhouette.
One shoulder swimsuit
Asymmetrical, one-shoulder swimsuits are super-sleek, stylish and look elegantly expensive.
The deeply flattering high leg cut will bring a touch of glam and visually lengthen your legs.
Pair with wide leg trousers like a bodysuit for a timeless evening look.
For the ultimate in glam try a 50’s halter style with lower cut legs giving you flattering lines for that retro-chic film star look.
If you’re looking for a swimsuit for sporty activities or just like that style, choose a black bathing suit with clean lines and secure wide straps or a cap sleeve zip-up for that athletic surf look.
Streamlined cut with secure straps
Cap-sleeve zip up
A black all-in-one swimsuit doesn’t have to be plain.
Why not unleash your feminine fun side with ruffles that accentuate and soften the neckline, you could also look for detailing, belts or beading.
Define your waist with a ruched swimsuit.
These can look fun or classy depending on the cut of your black swimsuit.
Textured fabric gives you a contemporary feel.
Detailing, belts, beading or ruffle trims
Look out for the features you need to make that LBS perfect. Do you need extra bust support? Remember you don’t have to sacrifice style to get the functions you need.
If you need more bust support look at underwiring and cup-sized swimsuits, with thick adjustable straps, in addition, to keep you secure and give you that perfect fit.
If you want more coverage and to hide a wobbly tummy then choose a suit with a tummy control panel that will slim the waist and shape your natural form or one with flattering ruching over the tummy area.
A skirted black one-piece gives you that extra bit of coverage.
