New premium swimwear brand Clover Lewis will be making its commercial launch at the show, and is one one of the first UK mastectomy brands founded and designed by a young breast cancer survivor. Founder of the brand, Clover, commented: “I believe my 2016 collection will sit well alongside mainstream boutique brands in-store, helping to ‘normalise’ the swimwear shopping experience of women after surgery.”


Vamp is introduced to the UK with an explosion  of prints infused with Mediterranean colours and figure hugging silhouettes. Key trends are geometric designs, summer stripes and florals and the brand offers competitive wholesale prices from £10-35. APM  Agency is also showing for the first time this season at the London Swimwear Show with a collection of brands under the RAJ Manufacturing umbrella – Luxe by Lisa Vogel, Oakley, Splendid, Ella Moss and Nautica (in the Quebec Suite).

The Elite Group will present a wide range of collections with something for every woman (and man!) including Phax, Baku, Corin and Hurley as well as Aguaclara, which sees a change in direction for 2016. Previously renowned for striking animal prints, the new collection takes a more sophisticated direction showing subtle hints of leopard and snakeskin in a deep blue, jade green and pastel pink colour palette with hints of gold and monochrome.

Profile 2016 is inspired by all things natural, beautiful and handmade combined with innovative contemporary techniques. Key trends include Exotic Gateway (prints from faraway destinations); Techno Geo (a trademark Profile© combination of small-geometric prints with the signature ultra-feminine silhouettes); Wildlife (the beauty of all things natural) and Grace Noir (contrasting textures, sheer/opaque contrasts and laser-cut technology) all complemented by a rich and exciting range of solid colours.

Chantelle lifts the lid on sports bras


Chantelle Lingerie conducted a recent report on female members at Surrey Sports Park about their sports bra buying habits, revealing that nearly 60% of the women surveyed had not had a fitting in the past 12 months (and indeed 14% of the women had NEVER had a fitting). Similarly 22% admitted they do not try a sports bra on before they  make a purchase.

Perhaps not surprising then that amongst the women who are not happy with their current sports bra (1 out of 4), 50% felt them unsupportive and 40% said they were ill fitting. Chantelle has revealed the results to highlight that not wearing a good sports bra will cause permanent and irreparable damage (not matter what the cup size). 78% of the women surveyed exercised more than 3 times a week but only 50% own one or two bras for sports and 94% actually admitted they do not replace them regularly!
