Wear a Swim Dress this Summer

Why wear a swim dress this summer? Swim dresses are an excellent swimsuit choice, offering coverage, tummy control and feminine styling. Whether you love a more modest swimsuit option or you're a fan of feminine retro style, you should consider trying a swim dress. 

Swim dresses are for everyone. With an inclusive size range, you can find a plus size swim dress to fit and flatter your gorgeous curves.

Find A Swim Dress Style to Suit You 

Picking a swim dress is just like shopping for a regular dress. You can select a style that compliments your figure giving you curves in all of the right places! Consider what you want to accentuate and what you'd prefer to conceal. With this and your body shape in mind, you can find the perfect swimdress for you. 

We've broken down the most common body shapes and chosen the swimming dress style that will work best for you.

Pear Shape (prominent hips/butt/thighs)

If you want to draw attention away from your curvy bottom, opt for a swimsuit with minimal details around the bottom but with interest on top. You’ll also benefit from rounder necklines and strapless bathing suits. Try our bandeau swim dress or underwire swim dress.

Inverted Triangle Shape (prominent shoulders)

You’ll look best in wide straps – because thin straps will only make your wide shoulder look bigger in comparison. Your figure will also benefit from swim dresses with interest around the hips such as ruffles, skirts or a print. The wide strap swim dress in a pattern is an ideal swimming dress for women with this body shape. 

Apple Shape (prominent chest and mid-riff)

Opt for panels with a contrasting print through the centre. Creating length is ideal for your shape. Vertical panels will offer an optical illusion making your mid section appear elongated and more defined. Our wide strap swim dress in printed styles is an excellent choice for you. The built in one piece will support your tummy and provide shaping for your waistline.

Hourglass Shape (slim waist, proportional upper and lower body)

An hourglass body shape has balanced proportions with a defined waist. You have the option to accentuate your shape or draw attention to different parts of your body. The strapless bandeau swim dress will look beautiful on you, showing off your shoulders and narrow waistline.
