Lululemon’s latest collection of bikinis and sand to surf essentials may actually get you excited about braving the beach...

If you’re dreading hitting the beach this summer, lululemon’s first ever UK swim capsule collection could be the ideal treat to have waiting for you at the Project Bikini  finish line.

Whether you’re a fan of surf, sport, sand or sunbed, there’s a piece to suit any seafront or poolside holiday activity. More than your average beachwear range, the assortment of cleverly engineered Triangle Tops , £45,  Swim Shorts , £52, Surf Shorts , £52, running clothes, Crop Tops , £78 and Water Bound Hoodies , £88 offer an extra dose of welcomed durability and comfort thanks to the four way stretch fabric from which they’re made. Called ‘Xtra Life Lycra,’ the material offers improved chlorine and salt resistance, with the chic  Paddle One Piece , £118 even having a UPF of 50+ to add an extra layer of valuable sun protection  too.

It’s swimwear at its smartest and most stylish.

The Lululemon swimwear collection ranges from £42 to £118 and is available to buy online at  www.lululemon.co.uk .
