It’s no secret that shopping for swimwear can be the most torturous thing on earth – especially in the Mother City! I don’t know about you, but I struggle to find really unique swimwear in Cape Town, let alone pieces that fit perfectly. For a beach-side city you’d think we’d have far more epic options open to us when it comes to bikinis and beach attire but alas, we’re forced to stick to boring designs and inferior quality costumes that last a season if we’re lucky. Until now that is! I’ve found the most amazing beachwear store that is hell-bent on making sure that the ladies, and men, of Cape Town are kitted out in the coolest designer bikinis. If you’re keen to make a statement on the beach then you have to pay a visit to Agua Dreamz Swimwear Boutique in Bo Kaap.

The thing I love most about Agua Dreamz is that all the bikinis, beach bags, jewellery, accessories and shoes they stock are handmade. Which means that each piece is unique in its own way. When walking into the store for the first time you can’t help but make a bee-line for the bikinis in the store – they are just so incredibly beautiful! Each piece is decorated by hand with beads, sequins, lace, crochet, ribbon or shells so, if you’re looking for exclusive, handmade bikinis and swimwear with tropical and exotic designs, then this is the place for you.

Agua Dreamz showcases bikinis and one piece costumes from Colombian designer brand Agua Bendita – a celebrity favourite in the US. They were the first to stock the range in Cape Town and it’s clear to see why they decided to bring the range into the country. The store stocks selected items from the brands range every season and no matter when you visit you’ll find a stellar selection to choose from. My favourite piece in the store was definitely the oh-so-cute 50s-inspired, printed bikini – complete with vintage pin-up motifs – but there is loads more to choose from and marvel at.

In addition to the swimwear for ladies the shop also stocks some super cool swimming shorts for men, drop-dead gorgeous lingerie, accessories from local and international designers and hand-made sandals that are too pretty for words. Some things that caught my eye were the cute and quirky hair ties and head bands from a US designer called ‘The Tie’ (a hair tie made from silky pieces of ribbon that won’t break or damage your hair – just R15 each!), pretty designer sandals from a local brand called So Cape (each pair is made using leather and carefully selected semi-precious stones), and a range of hand-made leather handbags from local designer Ilundi.

The Agua Dreamz Swimwear Boutique stocks a range of items to suit any budget and is a great place to shop for a gift for a girlfriend or yourself! You can pick up accessories and smaller items like necklaces, hair ties, and bracelets from R15 – R300 and bikinis, swimming trunks, handbags, and sandals from R1000 (depending on the design). And, the great news is, if you’re not based in Cape Town you can still shop up a storm as they’re launching an online store at the end of January!
