Summer is almost here and you know what that means!  It’s time to get the cossies out again.  For some women, bikini weather can’t come fast enough.  But for others, the thought of stripping down to swimmers can be a total nightmare.  Don’t worry, we’ve all been there!

We believe that whether you are ‘summer ready’ or not, every woman should feel happy and confident in her swimsuit.  But like an ill-fitting bra, a shapeless dress or a bad pair of jeans, a not-so-flattering cossie can have a huge hit on your confidence.

For us, the key to feeling fab at the pool or at the beach is wearing swimwear that is stylish, modern and that flatters your figure. The issue is, when we’ve tried to find shape-enhancing suits in the past, they’ve been boring, uncomfortable and just... well... daggy and unattractive.

That’s why when we saw Nancy Ganz’s new Swimwear with Benefits collection we were seriously impressed. All of the girls in the SWIISH team were ooh-ing and ahh-ing over every piece! Not only are these swimmers incredibly fashion-forward but they also flatten your tummy, slim your waist and shape your bust. YES! In other words, they make you look and feel like a total beach bombshell!

Now if you love your tummy tucking tights and waist cinching slips, then you already know about Nancy Ganz – they’re the number one shapewear brand in Australia!  But believe us, if you haven't seen their swimwear you are going to be wowed. With bold tropical prints, pops of bright rose and sun kissed coral, their swimwear collection is modern, youthful and chic.  

Inspired by the hues of the Australian landscapes and our never-ending summer, the collection also includes snakeskin patterns, interwoven with aqua greens and tie-dye stripes.  We love how it reflects everything we adore about the landscape and truly captures that famous Aussie summer vibe.    

The retro trend is SO huge right now, which is why we were particularly attracted to Nancy Ganz’s new 50’s inspired Shaping Bikini.  Featuring a longline design to lift and smooth and high-waisted bottoms that hold and slim in all the right places, this bikini is the most flattering we’ve ever worn. We also love that it's in classic black; we know that we'll be wearing this for years.

We also found a heap of one pieces that were just to die for. One pieces are going to be the biggest trend in swimwear this summer, and this blue number (below) was our ultimate fave. With a waist slimming design and cleavage enhancing hardware, it’s the type of suit that looks amazing on any body type.  The funny thing is, even if we didn’t know it was shapewear we’d still pick it.  Polka dots are so in right now and the style is also bang on trend.  We had to have it!

If you need swimwear that’s fashionable AND flattering this season, we definitely recommend checking out Nancy Ganz’s new Swimwear with Benefits range. 

You can get your hands on it now at selected Myer and David Jones Stores and Swim Boutiques across Australia and New Zealand.  But if you’re like us and also love to shop online, the full range is also available at
