IT'S that time of year again.

The warmer weather heralds an excuse to shop for your new season swimmers.

Yes I know, how can that tiny amount of fabric cost so much?

But, I'll admit, I've invested in a couple of pairs that could have got me a nice dress or two.

And you know what? The way they make me feel when I have to rock my body in minimal cover on the beach is worth it.

The gorgeous items featured in this shoot were supplied by Coastline Clothing in Tannum Sands.

They stock plenty of flowy dresses and kaftans, but they're also one of few stores in the region that stock swimwear.

Their brand of choice is Australian label Seafolly, which has noticeable quality.

The fits are excellent, styles are inspired in non-sheer fabrics and removable padding should you choose.

For other options, you can find surfwear branded swimwear at stores like Rush Surf and Gladstone boutiques will provide plenty of options for springtime fashion.

Updating your swimwear yearly isn't a must-do, but it helps to have a bit of variety in your wardrobe.

Luckily our glorious weather in this part of the world means our swimmers get more frequent wear than our southern sisters.

SWIMMER STYLE

Should you go one-piece or bikini?

Preference is personal choice but make sure you pick a pair that you love and that give you confidence, whatever your body shape.
