Rethinking size & shape

Think shape before size, every time. That's our mantra. We want it to be yours too.

Sure, size is helpful but it shouldn't be #1. Because when you know your shape, you'll discover what fits you best. Size is literally just a number.
We've developed an exclusive tool for every body, and it will help you understand yours too.

Discover your shape now, and browse swimwear to suit it. All you need is a tape measure and our free Shape & Size Calculator »

Anita McLachlan

The Cossie Whisperer

At the helm of Sequins & Sand for over 14 years, I've helped 1000s of women find a swimsuit they feel great in. Swimsuits that fit well, that work with their shape and bring out their best. In colours and prints that look fabulous. Swimsuits that functionally, do the job too.

I know how overwhelming, frustrating and demoralising it can be shopping for a swimsuit. It's time consuming and expensive as you try over and over to get it right.

But when you do get it right, the relief, the confidence boost is forever life-changing. It flows well beyond the pool and the beach. The swimsuit symbolises that you can. It's proof that you've overcome the self-doubt. The freedom to step out an say 'This is me!'. After all, it's 'go time' girls!

The Cossie Confidence Movement

For the past 6 years, Anita and a crew of 23 everyday women of all shapes, sizes and ages, have empowered other women to dive into their summers once more with our Cossie Confidence movement and campaigns. Showing what's possible.

The right swimsuit is out there for you. It IS possible to find. And the difference it can make is incredible. It's uplifting. It's empowering and more importantly, it will give you the confidence to get out there and do the things you love.

Don't settle for 'that'll do'. The outcome you want is 'Hello! This is me! I'm here to play.'
