Fit Guide FAQ

Your bathing suit should fit snugly against your skin without feeling uncomfortable.

It’s best to follow the product sizing guide to find your ideal fit but here’s a guideline to help you decide:

  • Size up: If you’re between sizes or prefer a slightly more relaxed fit, sizing up can provide added comfort and ease of movement.
  • Size down: Opt for a smaller size if you prefer a snug and supportive fit that stays in place during water activities.
  • Remember, sizing can vary between styles and brands, so refer to the product size chart for assistance.

To determine your size, consult the product size chart. Remember the size varies depending on the brands. For more reference, O’Neill, Malai, PQ and Diesel run smaller.  

If you’re looking for more coverage, explore options like one-piece swimsuits, tankinis, boy shorts and skirts for stylish alternatives or rash guards and wetsuits for an athletic style.

High-cut swimsuits, like our high waist bikini bottoms can create the illusion of longer legs.

One effective approach is to consider swimwear options that create the illusion of length. Here are two suggestions: Consider trying a high neck swimsuit or rash guard for a visually elongating effect.

We’ve got you covered! Here are some tips to find the swimsuit that will highlight your strengths and make you feel confident.

  • Identify the aspects you love about your body and choose a swimsuit style that showcases them. For example, if you have a smaller bust, consider triangle bikini tops or push-up bikini tops for a gentle enhancement. For those with curves, a high waist bikini bottom can emphasize your waistline.
  • If comfort and support are key aspect for you, explore underwire bikini tops and D Cup and more for added bust support or bralette bikini tops for a relaxed and stylish fit.
  • Ultimately, the best swimsuit for you is the one that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Embrace your unique beauty and style, and you’ll radiate confidence at the beach or pool.

Opt for swimsuits with rushing, like our Brazilian bikini bottoms or tankinis or a slimming swimsuit like our one-piece or high-waist bikini bottom to create a flattering waistline.

Achieving the perfect fit for your swimsuit is essential for both comfort and confidence. Here are some suggestions to help you achieve the ideal fit:

  1. If you’re between sizes, consider trying both to see which offers a more comfortable fit. Remember that sizing can vary between styles, so it’s important to refer to the product size chart for guidance.
  2. Look for swimsuits with adjustable straps, ties, or closures. These features allow you to customize the fit to your body’s unique shape and proportions.
  3. If you’re looking for extra support for your bust, explore options like underwire bikini tops, bralette bikini tops or D Cup and more.
  4. Don’t hesitate to mix and match tops and bottoms to find the best combination for your body type.
  5. Different fabrics can affect how a swimsuit fits and feels. Some fabrics have more stretch than others, so keep this in mind when making your selection.
  6. Ultimately, a confident attitude can make any swimsuit look even better. Choose a style that aligns with your preferences and allows you to feel your best.

Sizing varies by brand. The brands we carry that run the smaller are O’Neill, Malai, PQ and Diesel. Refer to the product size chart for accurate measurements and recommendations.

Explore triangle bikini tops for a flattering look or push-up bikini top to enhances a smaller bust.

Swimsuits with tummy control features, like our sculpting one-piece, tankinis, high-waisted bottom and skirted bottoms, can provide the coverage you desire.

To keep your swimsuit in top condition, it's important to wash it properly. Start by rinsing it in cold water immediately after use to remove any chlorine, salt, or sand. Use a mild detergent and hand-wash your swimsuit in lukewarm water. Gently rinse thoroughly while avoiding twisting it, as this can damage the fabric, and lay it flat on a towel to air dry.
