About Us

Anita McLachlan - 1st November 2009

At Sequins and Sand, the promise is simple: we're here to help women whose body shapes have changed over the years, get into a swimsuit with confidence and get their summer holiday groove back. We want you to be able to step out onto that sand feeling fabulous and make precious memories with family and friends. To fall in love with summer all over again.

Has it been a while since you stepped out in a swimsuit? Or you can't find something you feel confident in? Are you letting negative self-talk tell you that you don't deserve to be splashing in the pool with the kids? That's ok. We hear you. And you're in the right place.

Because our mission isn't just to sell togs. Sure, on the surface, that's what we do. But it's more than that. Over the past 11 years we've helped thousands of women reclaim their summers and we'd love to help you, too.

We're here for you

We bring busy women a collection of must-have swimwear, resort wear and holiday essentials, all in one place. All but one of our brands are Australian labels, with resort and swimwear brands in sizes 10-30. Everything is hand-picked for its fabulous fabric, fit, colour and versatility.
With kaftans, swimwear, summer dresses}, stunning[summer jewellery to transform your pieces from day to night, beach bags that pack flat on the bottom of your suitcase and hats that will squish and spring back, we're committed to helping your find the right piece whatever your shape or size.

Need a hand? Helping is what we do best

One of the things we're best known for is our old-fashioned customer service. The kind you might not expect from an online shop. But because we're committed to helping you get it right, we offer several levels of support, ranging from a simple phone call or email through to a fully customised, private virtual fitting service done via live video link.

Bringing Cossie Confidence to Aussie women

Sometimes it's reassuring and builds confidence to see how other beautiful, real, everyday women look in their swimwear. That's where our Cossie Confidence Crew comes in. Sequins and Sand's #CossieConfidence movement was started to inspire and encourage women to get into their bathers, and live their best summer making wonderful memories with family and friends.

Our wonderful Crew members volunteer their time to model our swimwear - and they do an incredible job. You'll see them in a lot of our photos and wearing different swimsuits in our store and on the blog.

If you want to see them all and know more about them, then head over to the Cossie Confidence website by clicking here or heading to Instagram. The girls would love to see you and you might just get that confidence boost you need to get you living your best summer too. What have you got to lose?! Get inspired and see how our swimwear looks on everyday women of all different shapes and sizes.

If you feel like you're falling between the cracks of skimp and frump and think you'll never find fashionable, flattering swimwear again, think again! We're certain you'll find something here you love.

Happy shopping and thanks again for stopping by. Here's to your fabulous summer, with plenty of #CossieConfidence.

"Hi Anita! The tankini is fantastic, great fit. Also wanted to say thank you for your outstanding service, you have been very efficient in responding to my emails and ensuring that my tankini arrived on time for my holiday. I wish you every success and will definitely be recommending you to all my friends! Thank you so much!" Verica

"Hello girls at Sequins and Sand! I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your wonderful service. From the kind, down-to-earth, detailed language you use to describe your products on the website, to the cute wrapping, bow and personalised note that you include in the package. I have had a great experience ordering from you and would 100% recommend you to all my family and friends. The postage was so quick, and I definitely appreciated that it was free. It gave me such peace of mind when I placed my order that I would be able to send them back for a refund at no expense to myself.
The cossies are very high quality and I am going to be feeling so happy and confident strutting my stuff on the beach during my upcoming holiday!" Lauren

"Dear Anita and girls. I received my cossie the morning after placing my order, love it! Packaged beautifully, further enhancing the buying experience which never disappoints. Quality products, especially for the curvy girls, informative descriptions, great sizing tips and good photos making shopping so easy. Thanks for your efforts, they are greatly appreciated. Have a great summer." Therese

"See what you've done to me! I used to be the person with the horrible old one and only boring swimsuit, worn year in and year out till it fell off. Now here I am taking three (possibly four) swimsuits to Bali! Am I being greedy - well of course, but you make me feel okay about it and all your gorgeous swimmers, I just can't resist." Kaye
