What Are The Glamorous Swimwear Trends for 2019?
Vertical, horizontal, diagonal...whatever your preferred orientation, stripes are trending big time this summer! Rainbow stripes offset by lots of clean white lines seem to one of the most popular looks of 2019, giving a sporty 1970s vibe. Stripes are also ubiquitous in the numerous animal print styles with zebra and tiger stripes leading the way. Elsewhere, more subtle light pinstripes are making waves. We love this Seafolly Sea Stripe bikini, which incorporates a perennially popular trend – cute bows – on the bikini top alongside matching hipster briefs.
Floral prints are huge this summer and most channel a vintage wallpaper look rather than nature. Floral prints are feminine and eye-catching but also distract away from your figure’s flaws if you choose your print wisely. The Maryan Mehlhorn swimwear range offers a vast array of beautiful floral swimsuits and bikinis. This nostalgic one-piece Fleuri swimsuit blends a subtle smoke blue background with splashes of colour with the ruching across the midsection offering a slimming effect. We also love this Maryan Mehlhorn Tapisserie swimsuit with its retro paisley pattern on a bright mint background. The dainty straps (available in single and double) contrast with the bold print and make it a truly unique swimsuit.
Colour Block Styles
Glamorous swimwear gets back to basics this year as colour blocks return for their moment in the sun. From monochrome to metallic, with plenty in between, colour blocks come in all shapes and sizes. Two-colour bikinis and mix and matching two-piece swimwear are in style, but unicolour blocks are the most popular. Maryan Mehlhorn bikinis are known for their colour block designs and this one is no different. The Icon Sized Bra Size Bikini is available in coral or olive and the pleated push-up bikini top is ideal for giving your bust a boost and ties with a classic thin-strap halter neck. The bikini bottoms have casual and stylish ties at the sides. Maryan Mehlhorn also excels with a one-piece colour block ‘Elements’ swimsuit that comes in three shades: pink, blue and black (bright, classic and monochrome). This gorgeous swimwear hides a comfortable underwired bust and has flattering ruching fabric across the bust and entire midsection.
Comfortable Shapewear Swimsuits
Does shapewear ever go out of fashion? It’s a guaranteed way to a fabulous beachside look and its confidence-boosting credentials should not be underestimated. Luckily, in 2019, there is plenty of gorgeous swimwear that shapes, lifts and emphasises your best bits. These days shapewear is crafted with everything from tummy control technology and subtle pleating to padded cups and adjustable straps. Miraclesuit Sanibel Shapewear Swimsuit is a great choice for fuller figures. Its exclusive Miratex® fabric boasts superior support and shapes the body into a smooth silhouette instantly without the use of uncomfortable control linings or girdles. It’s an example of luxury swimwear that shapes and enhances your body without sacrificing style.
Geometric patterns and cut-out swimsuits
Shapes are important in both the style and pattern of swimsuits and bikinis. Geometric patterns like the one on this Maryan Mehlhorn Cubana Collection swimsuit are turning heads. The zigzag pattern incorporates another hot trend, metallic colours, and keeps on theme with more geometric shapes in the straps. Geometric shaped cut-outs are being worn by the most stylish celebrities with deep side cut-outs and plunging necklines. For a chic and creative cut-out style, Amazing Grace recommends Nicole Olivier’s Chacha Crochet Trikini in sophisticated black. The halter neck one-piece looks more like a sophisticated bikini connected at the midriff. The crochet work might create a strangely patterned tan, but it will be worth it.
