Starting from just £14 and ranging in sizes 6-18, the high street store has teamed up with model Charli Howard and created a swimwear line to make you feel fabulous!

RI X Charli Howard
Eeee! The collection we didn’t even know we needed is here – and trust us when we say you’ll want everything from the RI X Charli Howard collection!

Just in time for spring, River Island have teamed up with model and body positivity advocate, Charli Howard – and curated a stunning swimwear edit, all about body positivity! She’s the model and woman of the moment – and if you don’t follow her on Instagram, you should!

Working with the high street hero, and combining her unapologetic attitude – this collection champions all the people who want to say ‘so long’ to the pressure surrounding expectations when it comes to wearing swimwear, and how we should look too.

Whether you’re hitting the beach soon or just scrolling through Instagram and comparing yourself to others, Charli wanted everyone to look and feel amazing – and now you can in her collection with River Island!

White Cut Out Plunge Swimsuit

Release your inner Bond Girl on the beach with this white and gold detailed swimsuit. We love the faux belt design – that will really highlight your waist! It’s also available in black too!

Pink Textured One Shoulder Bikini Top

Pink to make everyone wink? We think so! This pretty pink top is also available in three other colourways – and just the item to take you from beach to bar (and beyond!)

Brown Leopard Chain Detail Plunge Swimsuit

Grrrrrrrril power! How gorgeous is this swimsuit? The gold chain belt adds just the amount of detail that doesn’t distract you from the hottest print of the season – leopard! It also comes in black too… We might have to get both colours!

Prices start from just £14 and range from sizes 6-18, with some items available in the Plus collection too. Best of all? RI X Charli Howard is available both online and in stores right now! So what are you waiting for? To find your nearest River Island, we’ve popped the store locator here.

We’ve also picked out some of our favourite items above, but you can shop the full collection online, right here.

Charli’s ‘70s-inspired picks are part of a collection embracing and celebrating everything that makes you who you are.

Featuring pastel-hued co-ords, beachy skirts and lightweight summer knits. Charli’s top picks include a high waisted, retro-print bikini and a daring gold lurex trimmed swimsuit. Designed for days lounging by the pool, the swimwear styles have an attitude that inspire confidence and positivity.

When speaking to Charli about her collection, she said: “RI X Charli Howard swim is such an exciting moment for me. I’m so proud of the edit we have worked on together, and the message that it celebrates. Everyone should be able to look and feel incredible when they put on their swimwear – and this collection is all about empowering people to feel (and of course look) unapologetically fabulous when they take to the beach or head to the pool. The edit embodies the confident, bold spirit that I hope everyone can feel when wearing their swimwear!”

We predict this range won’t last long so cards at the ready – it’s time to get shopping!
