You might think that it's way too early to start thinking about swimwear, but experience tells us that now's an optimum time to shop for holiday packing essentials. In fact, some of our favourite high-street retailers are already stocking excellent swimwear options, and it doesn't look like they're hanging around for much longer (or until you have a panic two days before your July getaway, anyway).
Most of our favourite affordable swimwear pieces come in well under £100. Although we'd never actually turn down a designer one-piece, there's a convincing amount of premium-looking high-street swimwear out there to make one think again.

The truth is that many of us don't want to spend a small fortune on the swimwear. However, the quality and fit of a swimsuit are still important, and we'd hope you wear your chosen swimmers on repeat each and every holiday. Topshop, & Other Stories and Mango offering up some really classic pieces like scoop-back one-pieces or simple bandeau bikinis in a shirred finish. All of these mean you can locate something that feels current yet timeless.
So whether you're jetting off to a far-flung destination or, like us, simply don't want to miss out on the very best swimwear the high street has to offer (just in case), keep scrolling and shop our edit of the most expensive looking styles to snap up now.
