Shop The Edit: The Ultimate Guide on Flattering Swimwear!


When it comes to swimwear we can stress endlessly over what shape suits us. Bikini or swimsuit? High-waisted or low? The big issue many of us have is, we don’t feel we are bikini body ready.  However, wearing a swimwear should be about making you feel amazing! After all your probably on holiday and relaxing, your swimwear should not be a stress. That is why we have compiled a collection of the most flattering swimsuits and bikinis for all shapes and sizes!

Swimsuits:

Swimsuits used to be our way to cover up more, usually because we are self-conscious of our tummies!  However,  swimsuits are hot right now!  ASOS High Leg Elastic Waist Swimsuit is awesome if you want to cover your midsection, yet still allows you to feel sexy with the high leg. Missguided – Red Stripe Ultimate Plunge Swimsuit will make you appear thinner!  Horizontal stripes have a bad reputation, but that is all it is, they genuinely make you appear slimmer, especially when coupled with a v-neck as Misguided have!

Bikinis:

Pour Moi is brilliant for bikinis as instead of focusing purely on the aesthetic of the piece they also consider the shape and support as you would with bras. The Getaway Underwired Top is brilliant for ladies with large breasts, due to its underwiring and balconette shape. Whilst the frills are pretty and offer a little more coverage.  High-waisted bikinis are becoming more popular as they are considered a retro style.  Paphos Mix & Match Nautical High Waist Bikini Brief’s don’t only offer a cute vintage appeal but they are also super flattering!

Trends:

Fashion trends never cease to amaze me.  Last year it was everything crotchet, this year slip into something velvet!  Newlook offers a Khaki Velvet Bikini Top.  This bikini top is perfect for average size breasts due to its wide straps.  But I would not recommend it to women with larger breasts as it does not have much support.   For smaller breasts, triangle bikinis are a brilliant shape. Debenhams has an awesome purple triangle top, that is a must buy this season!
