Blue Glue Bikinis Bound for British Shores this Summer

2009-06-22 launches on 22 June, 2009

June 22, 2009, Press Dispensary. Glamorous global swimwear brand, Blue Glue, is bringing its beautiful bikinis to the UK and Ireland for Summer 2009. Made on the exotic island of Bali but infused with solid French design credentials, the full Blue Glue bikini collection will be available online at, providing savvy swimwear shoppers with stylish, upscale pieces - without the designer price tag.

The new online store caters for every woman looking for a bikini designed to perfectly embrace the female form - from diehard fashionistas and surfer chicks to yummy mummies and the more mature woman looking for classical, elegant lines.

The 2009 collection includes a range of funky prints, flirty fun designs, ethnic styles, reversible solid colours, specific cuts for the more voluptuous figure and a range of mix and match basics – all with superior cut and fit. The site will also feature a best seller of the month and a ‘collectors’ range for those glamorous red carpet moments.

Shapes range from supportive halters, shorts, swimsuits and monokinis in a full range of sizes, to sassy triangles, tie-sides, tangas and thongs. The bikinis are embedded with exotic materials including beads, carved wood, seashells and mother of pearl motifs, and decadent accessories such as Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones and silver.

With many years of experience, Blue Glue is a recognised authority in the swimwear industry with distribution in 15 countries and retailing in more than 85. Its products have features on Fashion TV and in many international fashion magazines.

The Blue Glue ethos is to enhance desired features and camouflage flaws. A treat for serious bathers, the collection is renowned for its perfect cut, quality fabric, flawless finish and delicate handmade craftsmanship.

The company uses Lycra by DuPont® with micro fibre fabric to make every swimsuit feel like a second skin and dry swiftly. And, with minimalism as the sewing policy, special invisible stitching achieves the strongest resistance to sun, sand and surf. The resulting swimwear is soft, lightweight, and ultra-stretchy for optimal comfort. Bra padding is custom made to fit each cup perfectly - helping enhance less endowed consumers and boost beach confidence.

Olga Jarvis, director, says: “Blue Glue has taken the world by storm with its gorgeous bikinis. This new e-store will fill the void in the British and Irish marketplace between exclusive and expensive boutique bikinis and high-street swimwear likely to be spotted everywhere from Brighton to Bodrum.”

“Blue Glue’s outstanding fabric, fit and finish outshine any competitor in the field and, thanks to this new online store, fashion-forward fabulous swimwear is just a click of the mouse away. Now there’s no need to shop till you drop to find your dream bikini for this summer!”
