With the weather finally starting to warm up ever so slightly I thought it was a good time to introduce you all to one of the newest suppliers her at Miskonduct Klothing. I think you’re all going to be very pleased to hear who it is too!
So, tell me? Do you ever feel like it would be easier to find a real unicorn than find a swimsuit that you felt good in? Your quest is over my friend, because Miskonduct Klothing has just become exclusive stockists for Beyond the Sea Swimwear in the Newcastle Region!
Beyond the Sea Swimwear is a boutique brand that was established in 2011 by Sydney-based designer Kylie Van Wanrooy, a pattern maker with over 20 years’ experience. Kylie started her beautiful swimwear label after her own fruitless search for functional swimwear that was also flattering to real body types. We sure are glad she did because now we get to showcase gorgeous swimwear that you can actually feel good in!
Swimwear designer Kylie Van Wanrooy
Kylie’s designs draw inspiration from the fashion of bygone eras when pinups had curves and swimwear left a little to the imagination. Her collection of swimwear is designed to give great support for curvaceous women, with clever design tricks to accentuate the bits you love, while downplaying the bits you’d rather forget about. She offers her designs in a variety of fun, stylish fabrics that you can really express yourself with, and she uses real sized women to model her designs!
From the super flattering high waisted Betty Boyleg Shorts to Tankini’s with built in underwire support and one pieces with carefully placed ruching and panelling, there is literally something to suit every body shape.
Kylie uses only the best quality Lycra materials and each piece is fully lined, offering you comfort and support. All Beyond the Sea Swimwear pieces are proudly designed and made right here in Australia, so you’re not only supporting a local designer, but also a local industry. You can’t get much more home-grown than that!
You just can’t go past the Ruby Rouched One Piece. The Garden Party print features blue roses against a turquoise green background which is just so pretty. The classic swimsuit cut is so flattering, with contoured cup for bust support and low rise cut at the hip to create a tasteful and comfortable swimsuit that gives you support and coverage where you need it. The rouched front panel creates a slimming effect at the waistline while the halter neckline gives a lovely full shape to the bust line. Ruby is a lovely swimsuit that will look great sipping cocktails by the pool in a tropical island paradise, or just taking the kids for a dip at your local pool. (I know which location I’d prefer!)
For those of you that love to mix n match the Betty Boyleg is hard to ignore. The high waisted cut gives you coverage over your lower stomach, which if you’re anything like me rarely sees the light of day! The boyleg cut gives full coverage in the derriere and ruching along the side seams allows you to slightly lengthen or shorten as you feel with adorable bow ties at the end.
Betty Boyleg can be matched with any of the tanks (we love the leopard lounge one!) or bikini tops. Whatever suits your mood!
Kylie is getting ready launch her Spring/Summer collection and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for us. We did get a sneak peek at one new design and instantly fell in love! You’ll be seeing the Lolita bikini set in Checkmate print in store and online very soon.
The adorable Lolita bikini features a crop top style tankini top with contoured cup support and gathering in the centre of the bustline. Beyond the Sea Swimwear’s signature high waisted boyleg bottoms have been given a super feminine upgrade with the addition of lacy frills at the hip. You’re going to find so many reasons to get to the beach this summer with this unique swimsuit in your summer wardrobe.
The bit I love most about Beyond the Sea Swimwear’s collection is that all pieces are available as separates, which means you can mix and match your tops and bottoms to create a truly unique swimwear set that suits you perfectly.
You can view Miskonduct Klothing’s full collection of Beyond the Sea Swimwear here. Stay tuned for updates on when the Lolita Bikini hits our store!
‘til next time,
