This confidence-enhancing £18 swimsuit is flying off the shelves

From silk midi skirts to beaded totes, summer fashion has been the gift that keeps on giving this year – and thanks to the ongoing heatwave, we’ve had more opportunities than ever to show off our holiday wardrobes.

But no matter the influencer inspo or endless outfit options, one thing that can always be slightly daunting this time of year is finding the right swimwear – until now.

High street retailer Matalan seems to have nailed the perfect swimsuit design that not only bang on trend but is both comfortable and flattering on women of all shapes and sizes.

Priced at just £18, the Matalan Shapewear Tummy Control Swimsuit has been flying off the racks since it dropped – so much so that it has become the retailer’s bestselling swimsuit. So what exactly is so good about it?

As you may know, finding swimwear that suits your body type and creates the perfect fit in all the right places without being uncomfortable is hard – especially if you want it to look stylish too (and who doesn’t?).

Well, according to Matalan customers, the Shapewear Tummy Control Swimsuit ticks all of those boxes and more. The item, which is described as an ‘ultra feminine swimsuit’, features shape enhancing technology with tummy control support. It also has a wrap V-neck with a stylish built-in skirt hem and adjustable straps.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping, a spokesperson for Matalan said the swimsuit is one of the retailer’s best performers and is ‘ideal for looking and feeling confident on the beach’ and shoppers agree.

‘I absolutely love this swim dress it fits me perfect and looks and feels great,’ wrote one five star reviewer on Matalan’s website. ‘It’s giving me the confidence to go swimming again I would definitely recommend.’

‘Great swimsuit and covers lumps and bumps too; what more could you ask for?’ another agreed. ‘Really good value for money; I’m thrilled.’

Something tells us we need to get our hands on one of our own before they sell out…
