With summer well on its way here in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s only natural to feel a little nervous about exposing more skin than usual. If you can relate to this sentiment, our first piece of advice is to forget what everyone else will be thinking and start focusing on how you want to be feeling. Looking good in a swimsuit doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have the best body; it’s all about confidence!

We recently teamed up with skin and suncare specialists Ella Bache to showcase our fave swim and active looks from Our Sport (available here). Fronted by the stunning Joy Corrigan, we got chatting about what you need to feel your best this summer, and we all agreed, that there are just three things you need to feel your best.

The right fit makes the world of difference when it comes to feeling great. Don’t worry about the number on the size label, focus on the fit. You don’t want any bits cutting in or making you feel uncomfortable but you also don’t want baggy bottoms or straps that constantly fall down. The trends we’re loving this summer? Modern cuts and bold colour blocking! Whether you opt for a full piece or bikini, make sure it’s a style that will stand out on the sand.

Nothing gives you confidence like a healthy, safe, tan. We love Great Bronze by Ella Bache. Super easy to use, it’s tinted for an immediate sun-kissed effect, then gradually develops over 1-2 hours and continues to develop into a deeper prolonged tan over time.

Summer is all about sunshine, warm weather and spending more time than usual outdoors. If you don’t feel your best, recognise that you’re the only person who can change the way you feel about your body – but also know, you’re a total babe just the way you are.
