Soft sailing

It’s a trend that returns summer after summer, and with good reason. Nautical-inspired hues of blues and white in an array of stripes and colour blocks are cruising their way into our swimwear holiday suitcase already.


You don’t need to have navigation skills or live on a marina to anchor the nautical trend. A simple browse through the collection of one-pieces, bikinis and tankinis on offer at Figleaves will soon have you looking like part of the seafaring crew.

Every year the nautical trend shows its timeless style and effortless chic, and this season doesn’t disappoint. A range of swimwear to suit your shape and style, including supportive briefs and one-pieces, bra-sized bikinis with some going up to H cups, plus halter necks, bardot sleeves and high waists for a truly elegant look.

Push the boat out this summer and update your nautical swimwear collection with some key pieces that will carry you through from one holiday destination to the next, wherever the wind carries you.

Earn your stripes


Create traditional nautical vibes with lines of blue and white, or be brave and opt for stripes in other hues and you’ll anchor the look with a modern day twist.

In the navy


Timeless and elegant, you’ll be met by waves of this colour season after season, whether you want a supportive one-piece or a stylish bikini.

Ocean colour scene


Reflect the colours of the sea in a myriad of shades of blue with touches of white. You’ll complement the backdrop beautifully whether you’re sailing around Mykonos or chartering a boat on the south coast.
