Part 2: Swimsuits by Body Type

April 15, 2019

We're so glad everyone is enjoying our style tips. The feedback we've gotten is so very helpful-- here are tips for the styles we didn't cover in the last blog post. Remember, these are not hard rules-- buy what makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. 

Claudette

Our Claudette tankini adds a sense of whimsy with princess seams and a flattering V-neckline. The V neck flatters bigger busted ladies whilst still being modest.  A deep V suits those with a round or oval face (don't fall off your chair laughing, IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE!) 
Also works for HourglassTriangle (in Pinwheel), Rectangle (in Pinwheel or Rosa as these create shaping), Inverted Triangle (in Rosa) and Diamond (in Rosa and Amalfi). Petites would look lovely in Amalfi (paired with Amalfi bottoms), as one color head-to-toe is lengthening.

ANNETTE

 

This vintage design intertwines artfully draped ruching and boy-cut legs to give you full coverage wherever the beach day takes you. Annette works great for Diamond shapes-- the side panel slims a heavy torso with horizontal ruching working exceedingly well to minimize.

Also works well for Inverted Triangle, Rectangle, and Hourglass

*Maternity friendly

REGINA

With figure-flattering ruching and a classic collar trim, Regina is designed to be your elevated swimsuit for any occasion. Regina looks wonderful on Rectangle shapes. The white trim details adds curves to her straight figure.

Also works well for Diamond, Triangle, and Hourglass.

*Great for long torso (Model is wearing a Size Small and has a 63.5" torso measurement)

*Maternity-friendly

MARIE

Our best selling swimsuit is universally flattering and convertible, with straps that can be worn as: a halter, criss cross, over the shoulder, or even strapless. Marie looks wonderful on ALL body shapes-- Diamond, Inverted Triangle, Triangle, Hourglass, and Rectangle. 

*Maternity-friendly

 

ELIZABETH

With figure-flattering ruching, detachable straps, and length adjusting side ties, Elizabeth is our must-have tankini top designed to help you navigate the beach with ease. Elizabeth looks great on ALL body shapes: 

Diamond, Inverted Triangle, Triangle, Hourglass, and Rectangle. 

Also works well on shorter torsos due to the length adjustment feature.

 

Remember, ladies, these are only style suggestions. Choose a swimsuit that makes you feel like the beautiful woman you are.  If you missed Part 1 of our Style Guide, check it out here.
