Shop our favourite belted styles now

Shopping for swimwear can be a bit of a minefield. There are thousands of different styles to choose from, and an endless list of essentials. It's seriously difficult to find that one all-encompassing poolside piece that will be flattering, stylish and comfortable in one fell swoop.

Enter: belted swimwear. If the last few years of Love Island are anything to go by, tiny thong-style bikinis have reigned supreme, but it seems that for summer 2022, many top designers are leaning in favour of more retro shapes.

In particular, we absolutely love Chanel's monochrome belted swimsuit, which debuted at their SS22 show. It might feel a little bit retro, but we predict that swimsuits will be huge this year.
