Curvy Queen

If you’ve got the curves, lets embrace and show them off! Check out our tips below and you will be rocking your swimsuit like never before!

Tips & Tricks:

  • Cross over styles both accentuate the waistline and flatter the bust
  • Feel more secure and comfortable with swimwear using powermesh for extra hold to create a smooth shape and disguise any unwanted bumps
  • Panelling is a great option for emphasising curves. Side panelling in darker shades can minimise the waist further while princess style design lines help contour curves and directs the eye smoothly
  • Diagonal design lines and features that lead toward the waist help give an hourglass illusion
  • High waist options can help define curves

Big Bust

“I need to support my girls!"

Sometimes it’s hard to see through the tiny triangles that wouldn’t even cover one boob let alone support both the girls! But never fear… there are plenty of options, you just need to know what to look out for.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Swimsuits with boning, gripper tape and underwire offer structure and support so you aren’t worrying about any wardrobe malfunctions!
  • A balconette style will offer you the best support, with its bra like design you will get both support and comfort
  • Try styles with wide adjustable straps to ensure you are comfortable and can manage the fit of your swimsuit
  • Moulded cups will assist with offering a smooth and perky shape while also being a facilitator of support
  • Tie backs can allow you to upsize or downsize depending whether you would like to go up a cup size or if you have a small back V-neck styling can elongate the neckline and give subtle cleavage
  • Swimsuits with eye-catching mid and lower sections can help offset a top heavy appearance and create balance

Tummy Control

We are all about confidence and feeling comfortable in swimwear, so if for you that’s finding a way to help flatter and disguise any tummy troubles, we are here!

Tips & Tricks:

  • Tankini styles with ruching offer support and are excellent at flattering the mid section
  • Muted darker tones are best when wanting to disguise your mid section
  • Flatter your silhouette with A-line styles as they aren’t going to cling or feel restricting. Match with a high waist pant underneath to smooth out any lines
  • Look for swimsuits with powermesh fabric to assist with support and create a smooth shape that slims and trims in a matter of seconds.
  • An alluring décolletage can be enhanced with plunging necklines, tie front features, frills and ruching to bring the focus away from the tummy
  • For those wanting to elongate the leg line and bring the focus to the lower body choose bottoms that have a high cut or a tie side feature

Small Bust

If your melons are more like strawberries do not fear! We have a huge range of swimwear whether you want to enhance or embrace what you’ve got here is some tips to keep in mind when browsing.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Look for a style with cute features like frills, ruffles, embellishments and ruching as they will add some volume
  • Halter styles work great as they will lift and push the bust together
  • Look out for moulded cups and booster padding for extra oomph!
  • Sweetheart and plunge styles contour busts and help them appear fuller
  • Busy prints will help make the bust appear wider and fuller than it actually is
  • Placements prints can also help emphasise areas. Sparse prints with lots negative space mean elements are spread further apart making make objects appear wider, ideal for enhancing the bust


“My booty game is strong!”

Whether you want to embrace your booty or distract the eye and focus on your other assets, take a look below and follow the path right for you!

Tips & Tricks:

  • A big booty is totally in right now, so we suggest trying the Kardashian look - the high cut leg line. This will help achieve an hourglass figure and lengthen your legs
  • If you would rather disguise your booty, a boyleg or skirted bottoms will provide great coverage and help disguise If you are looking for fuller coverage mesh sarongs or cute boardshorts are perfect!
  • Draw attention away from this area and help disguise with voluminous tops. For example trapeze, blouson and A-line shapes are great!
  • Bright fun prints up top paired with a solid hue or dark printed bottom will draw the eye up and minimise your bottom half


Being slim and straight through the middle definitely has its benefits; if you would like to enhance and maybe create some curves then look no further!

Tips & Tricks:

  • Small minimal coverage styles won’t swamp the petite figure and can help increase curves
  • Define your silhouette with cut out designs and monokinis for an ultra daring look It’s all about the detail…features like frills and ruffles, mesh and ruching or delicate embellishments will compliment your petite frame
  • Tie side and brazilian bottoms can add volume and elongate legs
  • Moulded cups and booster padding will help enhance shape
  • Stripes and directional prints that elongate the body are preferable. Small scale prints aren’t as overpowering and are ideal
  • If you have an athletic figure show off your toned arms with a high neck bikini top, which will give you some shape too!
