Swimwear to Flatter the Curvy Figure

If you are lucky enough to have a curvy figure, you need to know which swimwear styles will make the most of your shape. According to, the most important thing is to ‘shop your shape’ . Be aware of what to look for – and what to avoid – and you can be sure that heads will be turning on the beach for all the right reasons.

Look for an underwired balconette or halter style bikini top to give the best support and choose a brand that is sold by bra size to ensure that you get the best possible fit. The introduction of bra-size swimwear means that women who wear larger cup sizes now have a wider range to choose from than ever before. Favourite brands such as Fantasie, Freya, Panache and Curvy Kate now offer up-to the minute styles to suit every shape and size.

If you are self-conscious about your tummy area, you might prefer a tankini top and matching or toning bottoms. A patterned top and plain bottoms can draw attention to the bust and away from heavy hips and high leg bikini briefs make the thigh area look slimmer. A frilled or skirted brief can also offer a flattering alternative.


All curvy women understand how flattering, and slimming, plain black can be. Classic styling has been brought up to date with one-piece swimsuits such as Panache Holly or the Freya Fever plunge swimsuit which give you glamour as well as comfort and superb shaping.
