Finding the Perfect Bikini to Fit your Curves

22 December 2012

Curvy women no longer have to worry about the summer months and the problems which accompany finding the right clothing to wear on the beach. It is now possible to buy swimwear which really flatters the fuller figure and looks great. More designers than ever are producing swimwear with curvy women in mind and they are doing it well, so when summer rolls around this year, curvy girls need not worry about finding a perfect bikini for the beach.

Whereas, once upon a time, curvy girls could only find one piece swimsuits to flatter their shape, it is now possible to find a fantastic range of bikinis.  

Choosing a Bikini

When you have a voluptuous figure, choosing a bikini is something of a balancing act. Curvy ladies need to be able to find a bikini which will accentuate their good features and play down features they would rather not draw too much attention to.

For instance, a bikini top which features a lot of detail, whether it is ruffles or an eye catching pattern, can really help to draw the attention away from heavier hips to the bust,  often one of the best features for curvier ladies!


One of the most flattering styles of swimwear for curvy women, of all shapes and sizes, is the tankini. The tankini is similar to a bikini but it offers much more coverage, so it is perfect for hiding away any lumps and bumps, whilst flattering voluptuous figures perfectly.

Tankini tops also generally offer a higher level of support, so they are perfect for women with larger busts.

One company who specialise in making fantastic tankinis for curvy women is Fantasie.  Their swimwear range  is designed with curvy women in mind. Their designers know exactly how to flatter a fuller figure and they produce some of the most stylish and colourful swimwear around.

Freya Swimwear UK is another company who produce fantastic tankinis for the fuller figured lady. Their range is cute, on trend and always flattering. Their Hello Sailor range is a particular favourite.


It has long been advised that curvy women should stick to darker coloured swimwear as it is thought to be more flattering but, this really is a myth. If women buy good quality swimwear, which has been specifically designed for curvy figures, then they will look great, no matter what colour they wear.

Curvy ladies should experiment with colour and pattern as much as they like. After all, colourful bikinis make much more of an impact on the beach!


Choosing the right bikini bottom for your shape is always important. No matter what size you may be, there is a shape which will flatter, be it a classic brief, a  side-tie or maybe a skirted brief.
