Cossie Confidence at the...




Welcome to Cossie Confidence with Sequins and Sand, the movement dedicated to helping women boost their confidence enough to put on a swimsuit and dive into their precious summers with family and friends. It really is the ticket to enjoying a hot Aussie summer and more importantly, making beautiful memories to last a lifetime.

Every year the Cossie Confidence Crew get together for the annual photo shoot and some extremely good times but this year, Covid19 happened! But that didnt stop these amazing women, who are dedicated to helping other women to live their best summers. So, from their various locations around Australia, they had their own individual shoots - some on their own and some in small groups. I think you will agree, they all look amazing!

#CossieConfidence is about helping women get over their fears and into their bathers so they can squeeze every last drop of fabulous from their precious summer holidays (and beyond). To not sit on the sidelines and watch the rest of the family have fun. But to get in that water with them and make amazing memories and ‘sparkle’ moments. To be in the photos, not taking them.

What is #CossieConfidence?

Screen Shot 2020-11-09 at 10.28.24

 Live your best  summer!

The inspiration is YOU!

If you find yourself sitting under that tree, watching on as those you love have fun in the pool and on the beach, then welcome, you’ve come to the right place. We hope that by seeing other women taking the plunge, some with their own stories just like yours, that you might give it a go too. Life really is too short and happy memories, far too precious.

Each of us has a story. A story about how we feel about our bodies, our bodies in a cossie.


You might not think it’s not anything to write home about, but for someone out there, it truly is.


And it can make a difference. Each of our Cossie Confidence Crew members have their stories. You can read about them here in The Crew section of this website.


These are everyday girls just like you, stepping up, stepping out to inspire others to do the same. They will make a difference. They already have. See how they have on our Instagram page. We will also post about them on the Sequins and Sand Facebook where the conversations flow. It’s just wonderful. 


Your story matters. It will matter to someone. It will let them know that they are not  alone and that making wonderful summer memories is possible once more.


To share your story #cossieconfidence on Instagram and Facebook.  Tag @sequinsandsand so that we can share it on so more women will see it. 

Submit a story via email here! Attach your pics to your words when you do and we’ll pop it up on the Cossie Confidence website too. 


You might win our monthly giveaway of a Free Swimsuit to the value of $150 from Sequins and Sand!

you give others permission to do the same.
