Matteau swimwear describes itself as the "effortless swimwear for the discerning woman." Taking its inspiration from the streets of New York all the way back home to Sydney, this Australian swimwear brand is ever cool girl's dream!
Ephemera is classic yet feminine. Flattering and timeless cuts meet girly prints and pretty pastel shades. These are swimsuits you'll want to wear again and again. And of course, we can't ignore Ephemera's basic black line of striking and sexy that will have you turning heads.
For two decades, Australian women have loved JETS swimwear. Satorial elegance and impeccable construction is at the heart of this brand, with each piece designed to flatter the female form. Creating skimpy bikinis, covered-up maillots and everything in between, JETS has something for every woman who value style and elegance.
Conceived and designed in Sydney's Bondi, Bond-Eye Swimwear is an innovative brand that understands the Aussie beach-going girl. The styles from this brand are strong, eye-catching and very sexy but still something you can actually swim or surf in.
Created by Gold Coast girl Bianca Elouise, Myra Swim is a brand that all the Instagram influencers are wearing. With a mission to revamp 80s and 90s swimwear glam, Myra Swim has modernised key trends of the past with block colours and curve flattering cuts.
The idea behind Frankii Swim was to create well-made and flattering swimwear at a price that doesn't blow out your back account. Since starting, this brand has been worn by celebrities like Rihanna and Kylie Jenner, so the brand must be doing something right.
When it comes to beach bums, bikinis and that Bondi lifestyle, no one does it better than our homegrown talent, swimwear designer Kerry Cusack of Bondi Bather. The brand ethically produces swim and beach-wear that is 100% printed, hand-cut and stitched in Australia. We took five to chat to her and bring you the 411 on what to shop this summer.
"There are so many different styles out there at the moment, so choose a look that suits your body first and foremost and brands that sell separates. Bondi Bather finds that most customers are different sizes in their top and bottom and have a preference as to how much skin they like to show. So combinations such as a high-neck crop top and a skimpier brief are a great way to balance a smaller bust and curvier bottom. For girls larger on top, go for tops offering coverage and support.
Our #1 rule is, no matter what shape your bottom half is, skimpier briefs are always going to be way more flattering. Our bestseller is a style called The Australian Cut. Not quite as tiny as a Brazilian Cut, but more flattering.
More importantly however, think about the types of prints/colours that suit your skin tone. People look great in a summer shades of aqua, but always try different colour tones to see the difference it makes!"
"Boho fans will love the crochet swimwear this season. But be warned ladies, those styles look great OUT of the water… Not so much when they are soaking wet - the lack of stretch content isn't good for holding shape. Look for options with a mix of lycra and crochet for a modern twist on the '70s vibe."
"One pieces have made a huge comeback. Think Elle McPherson in the Dr Pepper ads meets Pammy in her Baywatch cozzie. Super-sexy, high cut, low back. Great for post beach sundowners too – just throw on a pair of shorts and off you go!
Personally, I am a big fan of keeping things simple. A great triangle bikini is hard to beat – the trick is to go for a great cut – and high quality fabric is a must (to avoid those baggy bottoms in the surf!)."
Kickstart your summer with the comprehensive guide to swimwear labels big and small coming out of sunny Australia.

You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature.

Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
