All new luxe Italian fabric

With the recent release of our new range I thought I’d run you through some of the improvements and additions we have made to the SUNSOAKED collection for this season.

Undoubtedly our biggest improvement to the range is the change over to our new luxury Italian fabrics.  Our decision to move to this Italian branded lycra was driven by wanting to offer our customers a 50+ UPF rating across our entire range and deliver a step up in quality.  We can now offer you the ultimate in sun protection even in the lightest of colours including white.  In addition to the enhanced sun protection factor our world renowned Wonder by Jersey Lomellina and Rodi by Carvico are soft to the feel and ultra-thin.  Made from luxurious two-way stretch these high-tech fabrics fit smoothly on the body giving a sleek, ultra-flattering effect.

Once you try on our new garments you will instantly feel and see the difference this stunning stretch lycra provides.  With excellent shaping power and shape recovery, your SUNSOAKED pieces will retain their fit over time.  Boasting the highest of standards, our Italian fabrics are highly resistant to chlorine (10 times more effective than fabrics made with ordinary stretch fibre), suntan creams and oils.



This season has also seen us raise the necklines of all of our swim tops to provide that little extra protection where it is needed, around the delicate neck area.  We are constantly looking for ways in which we can improve our garments to better meet your sun protection needs.  Style wise we have added some bling!  SUNSOAKED’s very own metal zip pull in silver has been added to all of our swim top zips which give our pieces an added upscale look and touch of luxury.



For the first time we have added some prints to our swim top range.  There are three to choose from, one of the new girls on the block, Ellie, our fashion-focussed cropped swim top in Del Rio Floral, a favourite from last season, the Janie cap sleeve swim top, available in Villa Tropicale and for comprehensive coverage, the Mimi long sleeve swim top in Del Rio Floral Placement.  Create a seamless look by pairing them with our new Bella bikini.



Inject a dose of glamour into your swim wardrobe.  To co-ordinate with our plains and prints this collection we have introduced a gorgeous new swimwuit.   Our figure enhancing Bella bikini is available in our two of our new prints, Del Rio Floral and Villa Tropicale.  Every piece in SUNSOAKED’s 2014 collection pairs with either one or both of these stunning prints.  The Bella moulded halter has supportive cups which provide lift and shape and include removeable padding.  For versatility and comfort (no uncomfortable knot in the middle of your back!  One of my pet hates lol!) our halter has an L-hook back which is adjustable to 3 positions.  This allows you to go up or down a size depending on the cup size you require.  Our Bella ruched pant has an ultra flattering silhouette and offers great coverage. The centre panel ruched detailing creates a slimming effect and mirrors the ruching on the halter for a contemporary take on the 1950’s high waisted bikini.

In addition to the above we have also released some new colours this collection along with a new short, Ava Lycra Swim Short and a chic new skirt, Bianca Swim Skirt, with has a luxuriously soft mesh overlay adjustable from short to long and any length in-between.  Head to our website now to view all of our new pieces,

Wishing you many happy SunSoaked days!
