Perfect for those who want to get noticed in the pool, Mako‘s Aumakua (named after a Hawaiian protector god) comes in several designs. Our patriotic Union Pink version is not for self-conscious swimmers: not only does it draw the eye but it’s pretty skimpy as one-pieces go.

The thin crossed-over straps and big cut out back are great for freedom of movement in the upper body. The top of the suit is level and high enough to be supportive and streamlined, and thanks to the straps’ design, there’s no danger of slippage.

We found the cut at the bottom a bit too revealing though: again there’s great freedom of movement but we’d rather have a more modest cut on the hips and bum. The fabric is hard-wearing and colour fast.
