Every body is a bikini body. All you need is a bikini and a body and voila! Beach ready in a bikini! Often the only thing stopping us from rocking a bikini is our confidence. All you need to know is how to buy a bikini for your body type.

Finding the right two piece swimsuit can make all the difference, giving us the confidence to get out there and enjoy every second of our summer. 

If you're wondering what bikini to wear for your shape or how to choose a bikini for your body type, we break it down for you here. There really is a bikini option for every body. 

Navy and White Dots Wrap Top and Tie Side Pant

Bikinis for Bigger Busts

Finding bikini tops that fit and support fuller busts can be a nightmare. Hourglass and Heart shaped bodies have fuller busts that often need extra support and room to fit large cup sizes.  While underwire styles will offer the best lift and support for bigger busts, some non-underwire styles are fabulous for fitting extra large cup sizes while providing excellent support. 

At Curvy Swimwear we offer supportive and comfortable underwire bikini tops to fit a variety of cup and back sizes. In the same way that you choose your bra fitting, you can find your perfect fit from our underwire bikini top collection.   Choose from our classic plain black bikini top or opt for a seasonal print with matching bottoms. With a three hook back closure and adjustable straps, you'll feel adequately supported and lifted in an underwire bikini top.

Crop tops are another great option for larger busts. Our wrap and zip frill tops fit fuller busts beautifully while providing soft, comfortable support.

Bikinis for Smaller Busts

Apple, Pear, and Rectangle body shapes are usually smaller in the bust which is great for bikini shopping. Most brands offer tops that only fit A to C cups. Here at Curvy Swimwear we cater to all needs with stylish options for every size. Even though your bust size might be small, you still need support and a comfortable fit. 

Our newest style is the reversible two way bikini top. This can be worn with either a plunging tie front or sporty scoop neckline. While perfect for smaller busts this style is still accessible for fuller cup sizes. The double frill bikini top is also available to most bust sizes but works brilliantly for smaller cups. The frill detail adds interest and fullness to the top half making a smaller bust appear larger. 

The classic triangle top is another style, that while it works for every size, is perfect for smaller busts. Completely adjustable with neck and back ties, you can choose your level of coverage by the size you prefer.

Tummy Control Bikinis

Our high waisted pants are the bikini bottom of choice for the majority of our customers and it's easy to see why. With a full coverage bottom, lower leg line and a waistline that sits above the navel, these retro inspired pants provide comfortable support with added tummy control. 

We offer this style with all of our bikini tops as it creates a beautiful silhouette, cinching you in at the waist and providing control for the lower mid section. While this style is suitable for all body shapes it works particularly well for Apple and Rectangle shapes looking to create the illusion of a more defined waistline. 

Leopard Crop Wrap Top and Ruched Skirted Pant

Bikini Bottoms and Pants

Of course we offer more than one style of bikini pants. Our swim pant collection has something for everyone from low waist tie side bottoms to 3/4 length long swim pants.

Our cheeky high cut bikini pant is the newest addition to the range and quickly becoming a best seller. This is a fabulous and sexy style for Pear shapes and Hourglass bodies with fuller bottoms and wide hips, who aren't afraid to bare a little more skin. 

For extra coverage, we offer boyleg and bike pant styles that finish between mid thigh and just above the knee. These are great for Apple, Rectangle and Heart shaped bodies to create curves for the hips and bottom.

Tankinis for Coverage

If you still can't bring yourself to bare your midsection or you need to ease your way into a two piece, why not try a tankini? A tankini set gives you the practicality of a bikini with the coverage of a one piece. Choose from a variety of styles depending on your needs. Our tankini collection includes strapless, underwire, chlorine resistant, and ruffled styles, just to name a few.

Styling Your Bikini

Now that you've chosen the perfect bikini for your body shape, complete your look with beach cover ups and accessories. A sarong is ideal to pair with your bikini. Tie it a multitude of ways to either cover up or show off your bikini. 

Kaftans and oversized dresses are easy to throw on over your bikini and can be worn to lunch or out for drinks. Simply add a pair of leather sandals and some statement earrings to complete your look. 

Feeling sporty or need to protect yourself from the sun? Rash vests and board shorts can be worn with your bikini to transform it into a practical ensemble for water sports and outdoor activities.

Unexpected and prolonged lockdowns can get us down. Many of us are not used to staying home for extended periods of time with limited physical interaction with others.

Often, we find ourselves stuck in a social media loop, consuming content that can affect our self-worth and happiness. We have more of a tendency to compare our reality to someone else’s perfectly curated and edited highlight reel. 

Staying positive and keeping our spirits up is challenging. It takes work. Affirmations and mantras are positive ways to encourage ourselves daily to keep going. Here are some of our fav self-love mantras!
