Add this £39 swimsuit into your basket before it sells out

The sun finally made a brief appearance today and its got the entire YOU magazine office excitedly planning and thinking about tropical holidays and trips to the seaside.

So, when we stumbled across the perfect summer swimsuit we just had to share it with you.

Designed to flatter this classic style from high street favourite John Lewis is playfully printed with a mixture of both horizontal and vertical graphic navy and white stripes which help to smooth and elongate your figure for a super flattering silhouette.

Porto Polo Stripe Swimsuit, £39, John Lewis & Partners

Cut for a sculpting, figure-hugging fit, with a plunge neckline and low-back that complement curves, this classic style is supported by two contrasting adjustable straps which cross-over, tempering the low scooped back.

Fitted with an under bust ‘shelf’ and lined for added support this timeless style is set to be a summer style staple: working just as well for tropical poolside retreats as it does for a trip to the local lido.

Ideal for pairing with denim shorts and sandals for an afternoon exploring a local market before a trip to the beach, this versatile style works just as well layered – imagine the blue stripes against this pretty lace kaftan – as it does when worn solo.

With more and more shoppers opting for one-pieces this summer it’s no coincidence that John Lewis have dropped an amazing 130-piece swimwear collection featuring a mixture of playful prints and colourblock motifs. Making shopping for swimwear a whole lot easier and more inspiring. Our fashion desk especially love this vibrant green style that’s now under £20 in the summer sale.
