Buying a big-name swimsuit is all well and good until the girl on the next lounger is wearing the identical style (a #twinning nightmare). To ensure your suit is just as unique as you are we’ve rounded up the chicest swimwear brands only fashion insiders know about.
Classified as a "fusion between luxury lingerie and activewear," Fella's sleek and simple designs are worth knowing about.
