The award-winning presenter, 39, turned heads in a stylish long-sleeved swimsuit from surf label Rip Curl as she frolicked on the beach with her partner Chris Walker and adorable children Oliver, 12 Evie, four and one-year-old Adelaide.

Fashionistas have been rushing to get their hands on the $120 AUD ‘Saffron Skies UV’ one-piece, a flattering take on a classic wetsuit designed to complement all body types, since Carrie shared photos in the style on Instagram.

Fashion forward but functional, the bohemian printed swimsuit is rated UPF50+ on the sun-safety scale, which means it offers ‘excellent’ protection against harmful UV rays.

Radio host Jackie O Henderson made headlines when she wore a floral long-sleeved one-piece from the popular surf label on a family holiday in Fiji in December 2018.

The 44-year-old presenter showcased her incredible physique in Rip Curl’s G Bomb one-piece, which is made from a thick, durable poly-elastane blend, ensuring a perfect fit against the body.

Fashion insiders with their fingers on the pulse predicted a revival of sporty swimsuits and practical ‘tankinis’ as early as January 2019.

‘I see the 1990s trend staying strong, but evolving into ’90s-does-’70s in a big way,’ Solid & Striped swimwear design director Amelia Lindquist told Who What Wear.

‘This can be seen in sweet peasant silhouettes, sporty tankini moments and retro textured swimsuits.’

Marysia Swimwear founder Marysia Dobrzanska Reeves agreed, forecasting a resurgence of ‘action-oriented’ pieces.

‘I love to surf, swim and play with my two girls on the beach, so I need a bathing suit that can move easily with me. I choose materials based on their quality and wearability,’ she said.
