Finding the perfect swimsuit can be more challenging than we sometimes care to admit. Many will agree that finding the ideal swimsuit is much more complicated than finding the perfect pair of jeans! Since you are much more naked in the swimsuit than you are in your jeans, it needs to fit right in all the right places for you to feel cute and confident while sunbathing and strutting on the beach or by the pool.
To make your decision much easier, I have collected some of the best swimwear brands Uk and some of their best swimsuit pieces for summer 2023.
If you have ever googled affordable swimsuits, chances are you have seen an ad for Cupshe and all the fantastic swimsuits they offer. Cupshe is a fast-fashion swimsuit brand that is extremely popular for offering affordable prices and some of the cutes statement swimsuits you have ever seen.

Just like I have previously stated, picking the perfect swimsuit can be difficult, and you probably have a lot of questions. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to picking the perfect swimsuit, all answered.
Q: What is the best color swimsuit to wear?
The best colors to wear are the ones that will make you seem the tannest, so go for high-contrast colors such as neon colors, orange, yellow, and white. Of course, going with red or black is also a timeless choice that could never go wrong. And at the end of the day, going with your personal preference and something that makes you feel confident is always the best choice!
Q: Is it better for a swimsuit to be tight or loose?
Generally speaking, your swimsuit should be tight enough to help minimize unwanted movement and contain your breasts while being loose enough for you to move around in and do all of the summer activities.
Q: What is the best bathing suit for a big belly?
If you want to hide your belly in your swimsuit, go for a belly that offers tummy control, in darker colors or with a colorful pattern.
Q: What bathing suit makes your waist look smaller?
Dark colors tend to be the most figure-flattering when it comes to creating an illusion of that hour-glass shape figure. However, going with a black or deep blue suit will create a solid silhouette.
