Welcome to SunSoaked Swim & Resort

Revolutionising sun protective swim and resort wear.

Born out of a deep love of the ocean, Australia’s outdoor culture and inspired by the glamour of the Italian Riviera – SunSoaked Swim & Resort’s innovative and groundbreaking collections are forging a new and exciting path in swim and resort wear, where high level sun safety and statement style go hand in hand.

Crafted with a deep understanding of women’s natural curves, sun safe silhouettes, luxurious fabric and statement prints – SunSoaked Swim & Resort pieces create unparalleled comfort and elegance, however you choose to soak up the sun.

SunSoaked’s UPF 50+, chlorine resistant swimwear is crafted from premium Italian performance lycra, designed for timeless sophistication and built to last. In SunSoaked Swim & Resort’s pioneering Di Acqua (out of the water) resort collection, the complementary pieces in their exclusive luxurious UPF 25+ rated rayon, allow women to effortlessly style the swimwear from beach/poolside to the restaurant, bar or café, and from day to night.

Without doubt, SunSoaked Swim & Resort is a stylish women’s response to the practical necessities of the modern woman. She enjoys her outdoor life, wants to wear luxurious figure enhancing and sophisticated sun safe swimwear that empower her body confidence, flatter her natural curves and protect her from the ageing and damaging effects of the sun.


SunSoaked Swim & Resort originated from a desire by the Australian founder- Kate Davis Steer to enjoy her outdoor lifestyle by the ocean, pool and beyond to the fullest in sophisticated flattering swimwear and resort wear that didn’t compromise on sun protection. Unable to find what she wanted, Kate knew there must be other women out there who felt the same and set about making it happen in 2012.

An innovator who wants to make women feel and look chic and protected – Kate’s first priority was redesigning the traditional sporty masculine rashie to make it feminine and attractive to women. Her first collection in 2013 comprised of just 3 sun safe “Swim Tops“- the response was overwhelming and the brand’s range has expanded year on year.

SunSoaked Swim & Resort’s philosophy is to create stunningly stylish, comfortable pieces that protect the skin you are in, embrace and flatter your curves and provide timeless elegant holiday pieces you can instantly rely on wherever you are.

Kate says

“ I believe SunSoaked Swim & Resort meets the needs of the modern woman- who loves style, the outdoors, her family and the skin she’s in and who wants to be a good role model for future generations’ sun safe behaviour.

I am very passionate about sun safety and the global movement and future trends towards more sun safe clothing and swimwear – I love that my brand is leading the way in shifting mindsets and women seeing that sun safe swimwear and clothing can be stylish and sexy.

But form, fit and creating a silhouette enhancing and comfortable garment is equally important to me. I sourced the highest quality fabrics in my UPF 50+ high performance Italian lycra and created and milled our own resort wear UPF 25+ rayon. Our fabrications are lightweight and beautiful to wear.

Many customers admit to being first-time rashie wearers thanks to my fashionable pieces. SunSoaked’s diverse collection of mix and match coordinates allow women to create effortlessly stylish and varied looks to suit their individual needs and tastes.”
