Here, we'll guide you through the best swimsuits for apple-shaped bodies, ensuring you look and feel fabulous whether you're doing a few laps in your local pool or enjoying the beaches in a far-flung destination.

Best Swimsuit for Apple Shape

Our top pick for the best swimsuit for apple shape body types is our Nancy Longer Length Swimsuit in Savannah. There's so much to love about this swimsuit. Let's start with the longer-length style which gives women a comfortable and flattering fit. This teamed with the excellent bust coverage, the underbust seam, cross cup seams and adjustable straps, all offer apple shapes an impeccable level of fit, support and comfort. As an apple shaped woman, you'll enjoy the all-over light control which will help you feel supported and give you a slimmer shape. If you are planning to use this swimsuit in a pool, you'll be reassured to know that this swimsuit is chlorine-resistant and will last twice as long as standard swimming costumes when used in a chlorinated pool.

Our Nancy swimsuits, like most of our range, are made from recycled Econyl® textile yarn, which is created using waste plastics. It's a truly eco-conscious choice, that will make you look and feel good. Whether you taking a dip in the hotel pool or catching a few rays at the local beach our Nancy swimsuits are a perfect choice for apple shapes who are looking for a fantastic fitting swimsuit, which offers support and style.

Your Apple-Shaped Body

An apple-shaped body is characterised by a fuller midsection, larger bust, and narrower hips with slim legs. If this sounds like you, you're in the right place. Apple-shaped women often have a beautiful shape with a wider upper body and a tendency to carry weight around the middle. The key to finding the perfect swimsuit is to balance your proportions and accentuate your best assets.

Swimsuits for Apple-Shaped Bodies

One-Piece Swimsuit

A one-piece swimsuit with tummy control is a great way to create a smooth, streamlined look. Look for styles with a deep neckline to draw attention upward and away from the midsection. Ruched designs can also offer a flattering look by adding texture and creating a slimming effect. Our Lucille Longer Length Swimsuit in Black and Leopard is ideal for apple shaped bodies. This bathing suit has both ruching and tummy control fabric for a comfortable and flattering fit.

High-Waisted Styles

High waist styles are perfect for apple shape figures. They provide coverage for the tummy area while the higher-cut waist accentuates the curve of your narrow hips. Our Stella Longer Length Clipback Swimsuit in Evergreen Blooms is a perfect example of a great swimsuit for apple shape figures. It can really help to create a hourglass shape.

Tankini Top

A tankini top can offer the best of both worlds—a two-piece swimsuit with the coverage of a one-piece. Opt for tankinis with adjustable straps to provide the necessary support for a fuller chest.

Longer Length

Apple shapes who are taller or who have a long body would benefit from trying one of our longer-length styles. A taller lady with an apple figure will require a better-proportioned swimsuit. Taller women with larger busts often find that swimsuits are too short and end up feeling uncomfortable with the support across the bust, so our longer-length swimsuits can be the perfect solution. A gorgeous, well-fitting swimsuit can enhance your figure beautifully.

Vertical Stripes

Vertical stripes are your best friend. They elongate the body and create a slimming effect, making them one of the top swimsuit picks for apple-shaped women. Avoid horizontal stripes, which can add volume to your frame and full midsection.

Dark Colours and Colour-Blocking

Darker shades and colour-blocked styles are great for creating a balanced look. Darker colours around the midsection can minimise the appearance of a bigger tummy, while lighter or brighter colours on the upper body draw the eye upward. Our Nancy Longer Length Swimsuit in Leopard is a great example of a colour-blocked swimsuit which will draw attention away from your tummy.

Diagonal Lines

Diagonal lines and patterns can create a flattering look by directing the eye away from problem areas. These eye-catching details can be found in a number of different ways, such as in stitched piping details or bold prints. Our Iris Longer Length Swimsuit in Black and Lake has a gorgeous swish design which creates a beautiful slimming silhouette on apple shaped women.

Tips for Finding the Right Swimsuit For Apple Shapes

Adjustable Straps -  You should look for swimsuits with adjustable shoulder straps to ensure a perfect fit and extra support.

Neckline - Detail at the neckline can draw attention to your best features and away from your tummy.

Simple Styles - Based on our experience, we often find that a simple style can be the most flattering. A sleek, well-fitted one-piece can be your best basic swimsuit pick.

Diagonal Lines and Patterns - Choose a swimming costume which has a pattern to create the most flattering effect and add eye-catching shapes to your swimwear.

Finding the perfect swimwear for an apple-shaped figure doesn't have to be daunting. With the right swimsuit, you can enhance your beautiful shape and feel confident by the pool or on the beach. We'd suggest browsing through our extensive collection and ordering a couple of styles. You may find that you love our swimwear so much that you end up keeping both styles. Our swimwear comes from free UK delivery when spending over £30 and if there's anything you don't want to keep, you can return them to us, for free, for a full refund.
