Here's some of our tips on finding your perfect fit.
Female - we understand the sizing challenges of shopping.
It’s always hard trying to find your size when you are a size 12 in your favourite tee and a size 10 in your last bikini top. When buying swimwear online, we always recommend sticking to your normal underwear size as most swimwear will fit using this rule.
We also have sizing charts available on each product's page to help with choosing a size. Please note that these sizing guides are sent to us by each brand and are not an actual measurement of the garment itself. It is also worth noting that we rarely fit perfectly into each measurement category on the sizing chart as they are to be used as a guide only.
To make it easy for you we've put the size guide right with the product. All of our sizes are in Australian sizes so if you are an international customer we recommend double checking the size chart measurements as sizing will vary.
* Please note the sizing chart is intended as an approximate guide only
How to measure your size correctly
- Bust: measure the fullest part of your bust, this is typically across the nipple
- Waist: this measurement is taken under your rib cage, close to the belly button
- Hips: take this measurement from across your hip bones at the widest part of your hips
- Torso: start at your shoulder closest to your neck and take the tape down the front of your body and pass it under your crotch, move it all the way up your back to meet the other end of the take at your shoulder, it should look like a loop.
Shop your shape - Swimwear
This is what we've learnt from years of fitting women of all sorts of shapes and sizes. Nobody has the perfect body shape.....
- Big busted -
Keep an eye out for the cup sized or underwired swimwear. We stock specialty cups up to a G cup and you can find these in the Specialty Cup categories. Check out these brands, Baku, Seafolly, Sunseeker, Moontide, Piha and Jantzen.
- Petite busted -
Never fear most swimwear comes with moulding or removable cups. You can also purchase Seafolly Beach Bust to boost your shape. We'd suggest avoiding the classic Tri shape, keep an eye out for sporty styles, prints or ruffles which can give volume.
- Worried about your tummy -
When it comes to a one piece also known as a maillot keep an eye out for ruched details, prints or panelled styles. If you're after a bikini bottom check out the high side or high waisted tried and tested options.
- Have a long body -
When it comes to one pieces we'd suggest keeping away from the bandeau shape as these typically don't give you any flexibility when it comes to fit. Halters or V neck lines are worth considering and keep an eye out for adjustable straps. We find that the brand Sunseeker tend to be a little longer in their make.
