We are blown away by this incredible swimsuit which has long sleeves AND an SPF of 50

Is this the world's most genius swimsuit?

Whether it's a bikini or an all-in-one, we all want to look our best at the beach. As much as it's important to feel comfortable and look chic, protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays is imperative, and lathering up with your favourite sun cream should always be high on your agenda. However, if you need extra protection but still want to look cool by the pool, you need to check out Une Piece – an Australian brand that is hitting headlines for not only its designs, but because the fabric has a rating of 50+ SPF. The swimsuit enables you to stay protected from the sun without have to make the extra effort of applying sun screen.

Une Piece have an incredible selection of all-in-one swimsuits

The brand's iconic 'Sexie Rashie' is a beautifully crafted, fully-lined one-piece that is designed with a super-luxe tailored fit and has long sleeves.

The cut supports your natural shape as well as giving you the best silhouette with its waist-panelling and zip front. It comes in a variety of different designs (including our favourite – snow leopard) and it's four and a half times chlorine-resistant, so ideal if you are jumping in and out of the pool. What's more, when it first launched in 2017, it amassed a huge 500-strong waiting list and sold out within one week.

Founded by fashion mogul Carly Brown she was inspired by her coastal upbringing and spent many years exploring European beaches. She found there was a lack of elegant and functional one piece designs on the market, which prompted her to launch Une Piece. The brand is described as 'Born in Australia, inspired by the South of France.' Now that's what you call stylish!
