Summer is finally here and if you are looking for the perfect kaftan, flip flops, beach hat, swimwear or frankly anything and everything that you could use down the beach, your one stop shop is Coco Bay. What I love about Coco Bay is they have selected some really special pieces from high-end brands such as Seafolly and Banana Moon, Watercult and Havaianas so you know you are getting extremely high quality items. Buying them all in one place at Coco Bay makes selecting a new beach wardrobe very easy.
I have to say that my favourite item this season is the Seafolly Sun Lounger Hoodie. The photos simply don’t do this lovely piece justice. It is a really stylish towelling kaftan. I might sound crazy, but this really is the perfect beach piece. The length is just below the bum, it has a beautiful cut so you don’t look like you are in a dustbin bag (which I have experienced with some kaftans), it is lightweight, dries fast and is warm against a breeze but loose so you won’t overheat. Honestly, buy a bikini (Coco Bay has a great selection of these too!) and one of these sun lounger hoodies and you will be beach happy!
So Who are Coco Bay?
Coco Bay was born in 2003 when a frequently aired holiday conversaton between twin sisters Anna and Belinda took on a new momentum… ‘Why at the age of 30 should it be so hard to find a bikini top and botom that helps in the right places?’
Neither had been involved with e-commerce before and at the time internet shopping was in it’s very early days, plus beachwear was never sold as separates. The sisters soon found they Identifed a real gap in the market for sophisticated, flatering beachwear which could be easily purchased from the comfort of your own home.
What is the concept behind Coco Bay?
Shopping at Coco Bay will take away that dread that many women feel about beachwear shopping – squeezing into tiny changing rooms with neon lighting, harsh mirrors and badly fitting bikinis is enough to put you of your holiday. The products they stock have been through really tough vetting procedures. They know the products they sell will fit and last. The fitting tips Coco Bay offer are first hand as the team try on all the products in order to offer the best possible advice so you can personalise your swimwear to your shape.
Being a family business, Coco Bay’s aim is to give their customers that personal touch which they believe sets them apart. They also have a dedicated team of experts on hand to answer size and fititng enquiries. Our holiday clothing has been selling really well which we plan to expand on. We’re also very excited about launching our own brand of beachwear, it’s been several years in the making and but is due to arrive on sale any day now.
Coco Bay are big fans of Australian designer swimwear brands such as Seafolly who they believe are still leading the way in beachwear. Being the UK’s biggest Seafolly stockist means are able to offer some exclusive pieces. They are also working with some really exciting European brands like Banana Moon and Watercult who are definitely giving the Ozzy brands a run for their money. Coc Bay are constantly finding new and exiting swimwear and accessories brands from around the world, make sure to watch this space as there’s always something new.
