Green means go – three swimwear brands you should take to the newly-announced green list destinations

After the UK government announced a total of 14 destinations added to the green list, many will be clambering to grab their sun cream, hats and sliders ready to soak up the sun after a long period of no travel.

Here, we share three swimwear brands perfect to take with you to the green list destinations:

Violet Lake ( – Violet Lake is a British heritage swimwear brand, established in 2010, creating beautifully-designed swimwear for women from the highest quality fabric. Their inter-changeable bikini separates enable customers to select from a range of classic styles of bikini top and matching briefs to flatter their frame, while the self-ties allow the fit to be adjusted for perfect comfort and support. Their range of stylish swimsuits offer similar considerations for an adjustable fit and can last for up to six years. They have recently launched the Castaway Collection, a sustainable range of their most popular styles, made in the UK in limited quantities from deadstock fabric.

Oceanus Swimwear ( – Oceanus is on a mission to redefine swimwear and empower women. Designed to turn heads, each piece in the collection evokes a sense of self-expression to help women stand out and feel powerful. The brand exudes confidence through its unique textures without compromising on sustainability. Each piece is made from recycled, eco-friendly materials and hand-embroidered with Swarovski crystals. Oceanus reflects the confident attitude of 80s glamour evening wear which is a constant reference point for the brand. The brand has now launched in Flannels and is continuously featured in the press. Expanding its product range, the brand has just dropped activewear and sleepwear collections.

Miss Mandalay ( –

Miss Mandalay designs D+ swimwear that can be worn all day – to tan, to swim and have fun in. The brand captures the style of exclusive beach resorts and brings on-trend designs in an inclusive size range to stylish, fuller bust women. The bikinis and one-piece swimsuits are crafted to give support and a flattering fit to women with a full bust so that they feel confident and beautiful on the beach. Many products within the swimwear and lingerie category that are made for bustier women can prove to be uncomfortable and lack the appealing design that smaller bust products have.
