Everyone should wear swimwear that makes them feel comfortable, supported and look fabulous. How your swimwear fits can impact your confidence, mood and your day! So, it saddens us to hear that many people don’t feel confident or comfortable in their swimwear. Whilst no one should feel like they have to "balance their proportions," sculpt, minimise, or conceal their figure, finding swimwear for your body shape could just put an end to the frustration that comes with swimsuit and bikini shopping. 

But where to begin? Firstly, it’s important to understand your body shape or features that way you can choose the most flattering swimwear. From curvier frames to athletic body types, we’ve made it easier to find swimwear to fit and flatter your figure. From strapless bikinis to controlled swimsuits we’ve got a range of swimwear styles to help you look and feel fabulous all summer long.  

Best swimwear for small boobs

Looking for some swimwear inspiration for smaller boobs? Triangle bikinis and bandeau tops look fabulous on people with smaller chests. The India Triangle Bikini Top is full of extra flattering details. From moulded cups to add shape and uplift to a double string tie-up for extra security when you’re playing in the surf. If bandeau bikinis are more your style the Free Spirit Strapless Underwired Top will flatter your chest with beautiful, shirred fabric. 

Best swimwear for big boobs

If you've got a bigger chest, it’s key to find swimwear styles that support you. If your swimwear isn’t properly supportive, you could experience aches and pains in the back and shoulders. Underwired swimwear with wide and adjustable straps can help combat this. Our Underwired Bow Front Control Swimsuit with a hidden underwire will leave you feeling secure and supported whilst you soak up the sun. With tummy control for your best ever summer silhouette. As supportive as your best friend the Azure Underwired Lined Non Padded Top with wide and adjustable straps will keep you lifted and supported all day long. Don’t compromise on style with this bikini top up to a J cup. 

Best swimwear for hourglass figures

If you have a curvy hourglass figure, a classic triangle bikini style such as the Paradiso Triangle Hidden Underwired Top will highlight and compliment your full bust. Match with the Paradiso Tie Side Bikini Brief or Paradiso Belted High Waisted Control Brief to flatter and enhance your natural figure. These bottoms will help sculpt your curves to give you a gorgeous silhouette. 

Best swimwear for pear shapes

We don’t know who came up with these silly body/fruit comparisons, but we move on! If you have this body shape it often means that your hips are wider than your upper body. Swimwear styles that include ruffles, frills and detailing at the top of your swimsuit or bikini top can help create some visual balance. The Space Frill Non Wired Swimsuit features frill neck detailing drawing attention around your shoulders and chest. For a bikini version the Space Frill Hidden Wire Convertible Top gives the same effect. With beautiful frill details for a luxe swimwear look. 

Best swimwear for apple shapes

Again, with the silly fruit analogies! Apple shapes often have a wider torso and slimmer legs. That means it’s time to show off those beautiful pins. The Paradiso Control Swimsuit not only has a gentle shaping effect to give you a sexy summer silhouette but it highlights your pins with a flattering cut. For a sleek silhouette the Ruched Pleated Control Swimsuit is worth packing on your next getaway. With tummy control, ruched panels and inner shelf support this style is a summer must-have. 

Best swimwear for athletic shapes

When you’re looking for swimwear for athletic body types, it’s worth looking for styles that enhance and draw attention to those beautiful looking hips and legs. Thin strap bikinis and swimsuits will also add a soft touch to those strong shoulders. The Space One Shoulder Underwired Top is a classic style for any body type including athletic shapes! Our fabulous Space Cami Top will soften the shoulders whilst keeping you secure and supported. Matched with the Space High Leg Bottom to enhance your natural shape whilst drawing attention to your hips and legs for a magical look. 

Best swimwear for tummy support

But if having some extra tummy support will help you feel more confident our range of control swimsuits will help you embrace your natural figure whilst feeling supported. The Santa Monica Strapless Control Swimsuit is designed with a hidden control panel and shelf support to sculpt your curves.
