Are you ready to do the ‘full monty’?

Yeah, gone are the days when wearing a one-piece cozzie meant you were either a Baywatch babe, or doing some serious lengths in the pool, or just didn’t want to display your wobbly bits. Forget what you think you know about full-piece swimwear. That was then, this is now…

These days there are styles, cuts and colours to suit every body type. 

Reasons to love them? Well, for one that offer extra support. And if you’re not on-board with the trend already, we suggest you keep on reading.
