Summer is approaching and what’s more exciting than packing your vacation suitcase? Ok, maybe it’s more stressful than exciting especially when you have no idea what to pack. 

You’re trying to keep in the luggage limit, but you need swimwear for the chill beach or pool days, comfortable day outfits if you’re out exploring and looks for the evening. On top of that, shoes and accessories to match each look! So, if you’re someone that tends to overpack because you just need options, we get it and we’re here to help. 

Covering everything from swimwear and beach cover ups, to crochet dresses and evening co-ords, we’ve got your holiday shop sorted. With collections in sizes 6-28 and curve sizes from 12-32, our range has something for everyone. 

Read on for our key pieces of women’s holiday clothing that will take you from sunrise to sunset. 


First up is swimwear. Whether bikinis or swimsuits are your preference, if you’re staying near the beach or plan on enjoying the hotel pool, having a couple options is a must-have. Our swimwear collection includes tummy control swimsuits to make you feel your best and gorgeous women’s bikinis for every style.

Your outfit wouldn’t be complete without shoes, and on holiday it’s essential you have just enough options that are comfortable, appropriate and stylish. So, we say it's a good idea to have at least three pairs of holiday shoes, which include some sliders or flip flops for the pool, flat sandals for days out and wedges or heeled sandals for the evening.
