Best Swimsuits For Women

Understanding Your Body Type

Before showing you our favourite pieces, you need to understand your body type. Every woman is unique, and finding a swimsuit that accentuates your best features while providing comfort and support is key. Here's a breakdown of common body types and some tips for choosing the most flattering swimsuit:


If you have an hourglass figure with well-defined curves and a balanced bust and hip ratio, opt for swimsuits with a shelf bra and adjustable straps to provide that much-needed support for your bust. High-waisted designs can highlight your waist. Our top pick for an hourglass shape is our Stella Longer Length Clipback Swimsuit in Evergreen Blooms.


Pear-shaped bodies typically have narrower shoulders and a fuller lower body. Look for swimsuits with detailing or patterns on the top to draw attention upward, while minimising focus on the hips and thighs. Our Nancy Longer Length Swimsuit in Leopard is a dream choice for those who want to show off their beautiful pear shapes.


Apple-shaped bodies carry weight around the midsection with a fuller bust and narrower hips. Swimsuits with detailing or ruching across the abdomen can help camouflage any tummy insecurities, while supportive tops with thick straps or built-in shelf bras offer lift and coverage. Our Iris Longer Length Swimsuit in Black and Lake has the perfect detailing across the mid-section which will flatter apple shapes. It is also made using tummy control fabric to make you feel even more fabulous by the pool.


Athletic bodies have a straighter silhouette with minimal curves. Enhance your shape with swimsuits featuring busy designs, ruffles or embellishments to add volume and create curves. A v-neck cut on the neckline and cross-cup seams on the bust will accentuate your shoulders and create the illusion of a fuller bust. High-neck styles also complement athletic figures by adding visual interest to the upper body. Why not take a look at either our Ava Longer Length Swimsuit in Animal Attraction or our Sleek Zip Back Swimsuit in Sangria?

Tall or Longer Torso

If you have a longer body, choose swimsuits that have been specifically designed for taller women or those with a longer body. You’ll find they fit better and don’t pull up or down in places where you don’t want them to. Look for styles with adjustable straps to customise the fit.

Now that you have a better understanding of your body type, let's explore what to look for when shopping for the best swimsuits for women:

Support and Comfort

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a swimsuit is support and comfort. Whether you're lounging poolside or taking part in water sports, you want a swimsuit that stays in place and provides adequate support for your bust. Look for styles with adjustable straps, longer lengths, or built-in shelf bras for added support. Additionally, choose fabrics with stretch and recovery to ensure a comfortable fit that moves with your body.

Flattering Silhouette

When shopping for swimsuits, aim to enhance your natural shape and highlight your best features. Pay attention to details such as cut, silhouette, and pattern to find a style that flatters your figure. Many of our swimsuits come with tummy control features and extra bust support, which is a must for helping you boost your body confidence by the pool. Experiment with different styles and silhouettes until you find one that makes you feel confident and beautiful. It’s easy to shop with us as UK delivery and returns are free when spending over £30, so you can order a couple of styles and keep the ones you love the most. Returning items with us is simple and hassle-free.

Inclusive Sizing

If your clothes size falls outside of what high street shops offer, chances are you’ve had trouble buying stylish swimwear. Not only do we offer inclusive swimwear, but our swimwear celebrates women’s curves with fabulous designs. Our swimwear range goes from a UK size 8 up to a UK size 28. We try and make sure that as many people who want to swim can find a swimming costume that they love. Our swimwear is inclusive of all shapes and sizes, so whatever you want from a swimsuit, we hope that we’ve got one that you’ll love wearing on the beach or by the pool - time and time again.


Invest in swimsuits that can transition seamlessly from the beach to the bar. Look for versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched to create multiple looks. For example, a high-neck one-piece like our Sleek Longer Length Swimsuit can be paired with shorts or beach trousers for a chic beach-to-bar ensemble. Versatility is key when packing for a holiday or planning a day of fun in the sun. If you find a style you love, why not buy it in a couple of colours?

Quality Matters

When buying swimwear, quality is paramount. Look for well-made pieces with reinforced stitching, durable fabrics, and secure closures to ensure longevity and durability. While quality swimsuits may come with a higher price tag, they often provide better fit, support, and comfort, making them worth the investment in the long run.

Sun Protection

In addition to style and fit, don't forget about sun protection when shopping for swimsuits. Look for swimsuits made with UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) fabric to shield your skin from harmful UV rays. Our swimsuits offer UV 50+ protection, whilst also being sun cream and oil-resistant. This is ideal, especially if you'll be spending extended periods outdoors.

Finding the perfect swimsuit for women is all about understanding your body type, looking for styles which offer comfort and support, and selecting swimwear that makes you look and feel confident. Whether you are looking for a classic one-piece, something with some bust support or even a longer-length piece that will fit your taller frame, there's a swimsuit out there to suit every taste and occasion. With the right fit and style, you'll be beach-ready for summer in no time.
