SPOTLIGHT ON

The ultimate swimwear guide

17 May 2018


Finding the right bikini or swimsuit for your body shape can be a tricky business. We believe that no two women have the same figure and that your individuality should be celebrated, which is why we’ve enlisted our expert swimwear team to share their top tips on finding the right silhouette for you. Our aim? To help you look and feel your absolute best on the beach this summer.

The plunge


Perfect for: taking the glam approach to beach days. If you’re looking to create some cleavage and give your shape a subtle boost, this is the style for you. It’s a brilliant choice for any cup size and particularly flattering on women with narrow shoulders.


Why we love it: a plunge bikini will mould and sculpt your cleavage, while still giving you the same support as your bra so you can sunbathe and swim with confidence.  


The bandeau


Perfect for: those who love to bask in the sun. If tanning is your ultimate goal on holiday, the bandeau is your BBF (best bikini friend). Say goodbye to awkward strap lines and the idea that the strapless look only suits smaller frames – just make sure you stock up on a good quality sunscreen so you come back golden and not sunburnt.


Why we love it: the bandeau is a complete all-rounder. We make sure our designs have removable straps so you have the option of extra support if you feel like you need it. Plus, the underwiring ensures you still get a great shape, too.

The DD-G


Perfect for: women with a fuller bust who want stylish, on-trend swimwear that still offers the best quality in support and comfort.


Why we love it: each piece in this range is designed especially for a larger cup size. We use wider elastics and straps (perfect for lifting your bust for an instant boost while offering extra comfort) and the power mesh fabric ensures more support around the back, helping you feel secure and full of confidence.

The triangle


Perfect for: smaller busts. The (removable) padding helps to create the illusion of curves: much like the plunge bikini, minus the underwiring – so it’s arguably comfier, too). If you want to enhance your shape further, match the top with high-waisted bottoms to embrace a look that Marilyn Monroe would be proud of.


Why we love it: the triangle is fun, fashionable and you can rest assured that this bikini shape will never go out of style. Look out for classic over-the-shoulder straps or halterneck silhouettes – we advise having at least one of each so you can mix and match. 


SHOP TRIANGLE BIKINIS

The swimsuit


Perfect for: everyone. No swimwear collection would be complete without a classic one-piece (we’re also fans of the tankini, too). Swimsuits have become increasingly popular in recent seasons, so you can rest assured that this look will not only flatter your shape, but also make sure you’re on trend.


Why we love it: the swimsuit is flattering, practical, stylish and suits every body shape. If you’re looking to hide any lumps and bumps, opt for one of our shape-enhancing designs, complete with power mesh lining and panelling – it’s basically the shapewear of swimwear.
