we have to credit Rosie Hunt­ing­ton­white­ley as the woman who made us want to buy night­ies again. Ban­ish­ing any thoughts of drab polyester num­bers that turn grey af­ter just one wash, she made M&S the go-to for sump­tu­ous silk slips and el­e­gant night­gowns crafted from French lace. Most im­por­tantly, of course, these luxe ex­am­ples of nightwear still car­ried a high street price tag.

Now Rosie’s bring­ing this magic to swimwear. With so much choice on the high street, it’s dif­fi­cult to nav­i­gate the choppy wa­ters (ahem) of string biki­nis, tank­i­nis and one-pieces. So we won’t be look­ing any­where but M&S. ‘This is my first swimwear col­lec­tion and I’m in­cred­i­bly proud of it,’ says the su­per­model. ‘The knowl­edge I’ve gained from de­vel­op­ing my lin­gerie col­lec­tions has been in­valu­able – and work­ing along­side the M&S de­sign team has been so ful­fill­ing.’

These are some of the most flat­ter­ing swim­mers we’ve seen, too. Fo­cus­ing on sim­ple sil­hou­ettes that pro­vide cov­er­age and sup­port where it’s needed, Rosie has added a fi­nal flour­ish in the form of gold hard­ware, sub­tle flo­ral prints and hal­ter­neck de­tails. There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one, from one-shoul­der swim­suits to floor­sweep­ing ki­monos, all avail­able in sizes 8-18 and 32-40 A-E cup. And noth­ing is more than £55. Af­ter all, this isn’t just swimwear. It’s M&S swimwear.
