Say hello to the best BM swim yet

Say hello to the best BM swim yet

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…

Since we released our first swim almost 9 years ago(!) we’ve been constantly looking for ways to make our swimwear better. We’ve done a lot of work on the durability, fit and overall quality, so we wanted to walk you through what our swims look like today.

The Fabric

You’ll notice most of our swims use LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™. But what the heck does that mean?

Without getting all technical on you, it’s a special fibre that protects your swimwear against all the things Summer can throw at it (hello heat, sunscreen and chlorine). It can actually last up to 10 times longer compared to other fibres without this protection.

It’s super long-wearing and designed to last you Summer after Summer.

The Fit

Good swimwear is like your best friend – it’s supportive where you need it to be, and makes you feel comfortable in every situation.

The LYCRA ® XTRA LIFE ™ used across our swim range is stretchy but strong, so it hugs and sculpts your bod for a super flattering fit, and feels just lovely on your skin.

The Cuts

We’ve also introduced a few new cuts lately. Let’s take a look at the differences between all of them…

Short Sleeve Reef Suit

The reef suit is fully-lined, sun-safe and designed to stay put on your bod. It’s perfect for hitting the surf!

If you hate how hard it is to take a rash vest on and off, you’ll love this baby. The front zip makes getting dressed a breeze.

But our favourite part? It looks epic as a top too – just throw on a high-waisted skirt, and your outfit is D.O.N.E.

Reef Suit

Just like the short sleeve version – but with long sleeves – surprise!

So it’s still fully-lined, but extra sun-safe (and extra cool).

Bow Bandeau Top

This bikini top is Cute with a capital ‘C’.

It has removable padded cups, a clip fastening at the back and removable, adjustable straps so you can make it strapless, cross-back or halter neck.

You can customise it more by tying the front bow in different ways, but the bust will stay together even when undone – so it’s nice and secure!

Roped In Bandeau Top

Did someone say versatile? Because that’s this bikini top.

The Roped In Bandeau Top has detachable and removable shoulder straps, plus an extra strap for endless styling options. It can be worn with normal straps, as a halter neck, as a strapless bandeau or with the long strap added and criss-crossed around your waist.

It’s a pull-on style (so no clip at the back) and has removable padded cups.

Cheeky Bikini Bottom

These are a fully-lined, cheeky Brazilian style with a high-cut leg. They’re best for when you wanna show off a lil’ extra skin, but we’ve designed them to stay-put, so you can stress less about them riding up.

Hipster Bikini Bottom

These fully-lined bikini bottoms are in a hipster, boyleg cut. They give a little extra coverage (and hold on better when you’re out in the waves!)

Triangle Bikini Top

The triangle bikini top is a straight up classic.

This one comes with removable padded cups, so you can switch it up.

Pin Up Suit

This sweet suit would look right at home on a vintage pin up poster. Or in your wardrobe.

It’s fully-lined, has removable padded cups, a clip fastening at the back and removable, adjustable straps so you can make it strapless, cross-back or halter neck.

You can customise it more by tying the front bow in different ways, but the bust will stay together even when undone – so it’s nice and secure!

Cut Above Swimsuit

This fully-lined one-piece wonder has a straight neck with adjustable straps, removable padded cups and a cool keyhole cut-out at the back.

From the back, it has a high-cut leg, but not to the extreme!

Throwback Swimsuit

This swim is a throwback to our much-loved high-cut swims from the past, but this one is extra flattering!

It’s fully-lined, with a deep V neckline, cheeky cut in the back, and is very high-cut at the front.

The straps are adjustable to fit you just right, and the bust has removable padded cups.
