It doesn’t matter if you’ll be dodging seagulls whilst digging into fish and chips, or lounging under a palm tree with a cocktail in hand, finding the perfect swimwear is one of the most fun parts of holiday prep. Scroll through our list of the most stylish bikinis and cossies handmade right here in the UK.

The plunging neckline and flattering retro cut are proof that one-pieces can be just as sexy as a bikini. Pop on a denim a-line skirt, which’ll complement the seventies vibe of the paisley print, and you’re ready for the bar.

Lace up detailing is having its moment in the fashion spotlight, so it’s the perfect time to snap up this swimsuit, which is available in a variety of colours and prints (if you’re worried that white doesn’t seem the most icecream-friendly).
