The team at John Lewis know the struggle is real when it comes to finding good quality, flattering swimwear.
We need support in all the right places, clever details and cuts that can flatter and smooth the areas we’re self-conscious about, plus good fabric that won’t sag after one summer of use.
Not to mention something that is practical enough to swim in with no danger of any kind of spillage, but that also looks good enough to lie around the pool in and passes the Instagram test. (Because it must look good in photos, no?)
We think this new John Lewis Popcorn Apex Wrap Swimsuit ticks all those boxes, plus more that you didn’t even realise needed ticking. And it’s only £39.
Why we rate it
It’s a classic swimsuit style that won’t date – so you can pull this holiday staple out year after year.
The plunging neckline opens up and lengthens the neck area, and the wrap style flattens your tummy and offers medium support.
The cross-back straps also give you extra support – they’re adjustable too, so you can make them tighter or looser.
The non-wired swimsuit is available in sizes 8-18, and comes in three colours: khaki, navy, or our favourite, a stunning red.
Another big plus point? While it’s cut high enough to lengthen and elongate your silhouette, it is not too high-cut around the bottom area. (An issue with so many swimsuits currently – because if you’re at all self-conscious about your behind, you’ll be spending your entire holiday trying to pull it down.)
What the reviews say
This gorgeous swimsuit may be new but it's already racking up five-star reviews with women sayings it's uber-comfortable, flattering and most importantly makes they feel great.

"Great style, fab fit and glamorous all in one swimsuit! Loved it so much I bought the red and the navy in size 12 which is my normal size so we'll done John Lewis as I'm really very picky!"
"Feels really comfortable – so much so I didn't grab a cover-up the moment I got off the sun lounger. Will buy again. Great quality for price."
"Fabulous, really flattering swim suit. Perfect styling – covers where you need it to but not 'mumsy' at all! Great on stomach; pulls you in and defines just where you need it."
