Guest Post: Sara loves Sirens Swimwear

My dear friend Sara went to an amazing Sirens Swimwear pop-up shop/trunkshow at her friend's house in Sydney last week and shares the details of this great Australian swimwear label with us:


Hello, summer!

Sydney may have been blowing an ice storm outside, but at the Sirens Swimwear trunkshow Sally and Margie (see pic of the sassy gals above) were bravely walking on sunshine in their gorgeously retro swimsuits and high heels.

It was a girl’s night with a difference at my pal Emma’s home. Racks of flattering – yes, flattering – swimsuits vied with glasses of champagne, nibbles and chit chat. The perfect antidote to the dreaded pre-summer swimsuit shopping dilemma.

If you’ve said goodbye to the string bikini but you’re not quite ready to hang up your va va voom, Sirens Swimwear is for you. With a strong dash of Esther Williams screen siren glamour, Sally and Margie have taken inspiration from their mothers’ swimsuits to design a range with incredible built in support.

They describe it as ‘Nancy Ganz meets Ava Gardner’. And every girl in the room, whether a lean and lanky size 8 or a curvaceous 14 plus, looked amazing in the results. We all loved the polka dots and cheeky gingham prints as much as the clever tummy-hiding ruching and ruffles.


Thanks Sara for the inside info. I'm all about the gingham. You can find Sirens Swimwear in the online store. If you are interested in hosting your own Sirens trunkshow, contact Sally.

  1. Wow they are gorgeous! I love the polka dot one with the ruffles and the first one - great to hide a post baby belly!

  2. They are gorgeous!! Wow!! Flattering, tick, ruffles - after 4 children, a girl can never have too many ruffles!! Trying to get y head around swimming again, i just dropped my children off at school & it was still -5C. Insane, ice everywhere, brrr, it is Canberra, we expect such crazy conditions, love Posie
