Show your sultry side with Kiss Me Deadly Swimwear. This line sports the typical halterneck vintage staple with a modern fierce and fantastic twist. They offer everything from the pink shell print (above) to pirate chic.

They offer swimsuits with shorts and adjustable bikini bottom so you can choose your modesty level. Seductive, practical and unique.

For more traditional nautical beachwear then look no further than Zoggs at Tesco. This is a very popular purse-friendly range that comes in navy and red.  Stocks are limited due to demand, online at least. They also have some lovely maternity swimwear items.

You may have found bikini tops you love but not the bottoms or want to mix and match with swimwear you already own. For some vintage style swimwear, these geometric print, high-waist bottoms are darling. You can get them with a matching bikini top from Jayne Whitehead or on ASOS.

For our friends across the pond you can head to ModCloth and for some actual 80s and 90s vintage swimwear UK head to Beyond Retro for one-off items to make a statement.
