BEST SWIMSUITS TO
HIDE THE TUMMY


It’s natural to feel a little exposed if you have a bit of a belly. Yet there are plenty of options, from one-piece swimsuits to bikinis (yes, you heard right!), for those who feel less comfortable revealing their tum.

The trick is the draw attention away from your tum with a swimsuit that has side ruching or revealing side cut-outs. You might also want to look for one-piece swimsuits with control panels that add an extra bit of support.

Tankini tops with side panels help provide a slimming effect, while bikinis with high-waisted bottoms (especially those with control panels) will help create a smooth, slender look.

BEST SWIMSUITS FOR
BIG BUSTS


For those with big busts, it can be a struggle to find a bikini that offers the support you need.

Your goal here is total coverage, so find a bikini top that offers the lift and support an ordinary bra would provide. Look for wide, adjustable straps, underwire boning, molded cups, and fits with specific cup sizes. Deep V-necks can also look gracious on bustier ladies.

Try to find a stretchy swimsuit style that holds you in all the right places without digging in or creating bulges. You may find the best and most comfortable options among our plus size swimwear range.

Once that tum starts to pop, you’re going to be looking for swimsuits that offer optimum comfort. Tankinis provide plenty of wiggle room and offer sun protection, while making it easy for you to dash to the loo!

BEST SWIMSUITS FOR
BIGGER THIGHS


If string bikinis and high-cut briefs aren’t exactly putting you at ease, consider wearing skirted bottoms to provide a little more coverage over the top part of your legs.

A visual trick is to wear bold patterns or colours in your bikini top and keep to simple, darker colours in your briefs to draw the eye upwards.

BEST SWIMSUITS TO
AVOID SUNBURN


Finding a sexy outfit that isn’t too revealing can be tricky for women prone to burning easily. But you don’t have to go lathering up just to look like everyone else on the beach. Set your own style with a long-sleeved swim top in a trendy print.

Or if you’re not planning on taking a dip, choose your favourite bikini style and throw a kaftan over the top. It’s a perfect cover-up and a great way to show off your legs too!
