Tankini trend: shop the swimwear hit of S/S 2017

Good news for those who dread the prospect of pulling on a skimpy string bikini: this summer’s biggest swimwear hit is the set to be the tankini trend – a more covering style that flatters all shapes and sizes.

We recently ran a survey that suggested tankini sets are seeing a major revival on the UK high street, with a majority of female shoppers rating the tankini as the style they feel the most confident wearing on the beach. Want to get in on the tankini action? Read on for a few of our faves available to buy online with CollectPlus click &  collect delivery now.

Crochet is a huge trend this summer, and we think it looks particularly eye-popping in this juicy nectarine shade. Floaty and fun, this top can be worn with or without a strap, and it’s another swimwear piece we think would look just as at home worn around town, teamed with jeans as on the beach.

£32 at Very >>.
