The online home of everything new and happening in Ireland’s greatest city
Brought to you by Opera Lane.
Happily, fashion has finally caught up to this fact, meaning that come summer, all you have to do to prepare is pluck some stylish swimwear from the rack and hit the sand.
This year, the one-piece is squaring up to the bikini as the best pick for your holiday suitcase. But how to pick the perfect one for you? As a rule of thumb, the perfect one-piece should be supportive in all the right places but comfy enough to relax in.
Whether you like some firm tummy control, a high leg to make the most of your gams, or a bit of lift around the bust, this summer’s suits are hard-working wardrobe heroes.
In fact, the best styles need little more than an oversized shirt to sling on when you leave your lounger and slope off to find a beach bar for lunch. Add a sarong for poolside cocktails and some tailored shorts for shopping in the local market and your swimsuit will work overtime as a holiday wardrobe staple, saving valuable space in your suitcase too.
It could even moonlight as a bodysuit.
