World, meet the absurdly flattering Kmart swimmers that cost less than $25.

In case you hadn’t seen it on your Instagram feed (or felt it while wearing your winter jumper), summer is coming.

Contrary to what social media advertisements might say, getting ready for the warmer months has nothing to do with ‘shredding’ or any of that ‘beach body’ bullsh*t.

Side note – you’ll find more helpful info on how to get a ‘beach body’ in the video below. Post continues after video.

Literally, all you have to do to get a bikini body is chuck on a bikini, cossie or a pair of bathers that make you feel good and… that’s it. Then, head off into the sunshine (after you’ve applied sunscreen) and enjoy.

For some of us, this looks like fishing out a trusty swimsuit from the back of your wardrobe, but if not, then you’re going swimwear shopping.

While we can’t control how you’ll feel in your swimmers, we can point you in the direction of some very lovely leopard print pairs from Kmart.

This might be the perfect bikini, if such a creature exists.

The nylon and elastane bikini tops and bottoms are sold separately for maximum mixing and matching - think of the cost per wear (!!).

The top is a slightly more structured version of the classic triangle bikini top, and comes with adjustable straps, clasp closure at the back and removable foam cups. You'll find it in sizes 6-18.

The bottoms come in both black and leopard, and sizes 8-20. The high waisted cut is made with an elastic waistband and power mesh for comfy tummy control (i.e. you will be able to eat and breathe in these).

At $12 each or $24 as a set, these swimmers are a bargain. You can see them worn brilliantly on a bunch of women below.

Oh, she comes in a one piece option, too. How thoughtful!

The one piece style has a scoop neck design, sturdier straps and removable foam cups to keep bigger breasts secure.

It's also made from nylon and elastane, and features elastic leg openings so no more red marks on your skin from a tight seam.

This style is equally as flattering as the bikini and comes in sizes 8-18.

If you can't be bothered doing that or your local Kmart is out of stock in your size, here are some other comfortable, leopard swimwear options to try.
