What's your body shape?

Embrace your body with a suit that supports your shape and compliments your assets.

A 'one colour' suit with vertical panels or piping down the front of each side, curving inwards gives the impression of a waist. A swimsuit with built in bra and full body support will emphasise your soft curves.

You are all woman!
Your wonderful lower curves may benefit from a low leg cut swimsuit. Bright colour and design across the bust will emphasise and draw attention away from your womanly hips and bottom.

Try a suit with a padded bra, it will certainly help boost your assets.

You have a strong athletic body shape. Flatter it by drawing away from the top half of your body to your slender lower half. This can be done by wearing a suit that has bright colour and bold design to the lower section, like this, this, or this

Your body shape suits almost any swimsuit. Vertical panels or piping down the front of the suit which curve inwards at each side give the appearance of a waist whilst cheeky padded cups only maximise your already admirable shape. Try these all-over prints like this, or this and this.

Embrace your fabulous curves and enhance them further with a swimsuit that offers a bra support. Opt for a back that provides chest support and adjustable straps. You have a wonderfully feminine body so why not honour it with bright colours and bold design
