Cashmerette - Ipswich Swimsuit

£15.00
Soak up the sun in the Ipswich Swimsuit!

This modern pattern has two cleverly colour-blocked variations: a one-piece swimsuit with a contrast waistband or a high-waisted bikini with piping detail. Both suits feature supportive straps and an optional underwired foam swim bra and boning so that you're comfortable lounging by the pool or playing volleyball on your favourite beach. Mix prints and colours for a swimsuit that celebrates your body and your creativity.
