Summer is here! The weather gets warmer, days become longer, BBQ’s with friends, garden picnics and day trips to the beach – which means bikinis… Argh bikinis!

Don’t worry, we at Swimwear Galore believe everyone can look and feel amazing when they are hitting the beach! We are here to help you with our guide on how to find the perfect swimsuit for you!

If your melons are more like mandarins do not fear! Look for features like frills, ruffles, embellishments and ruching as they will add some volume. Or look out for halter styles with moulded cups & booster padding that will give you extra oomph! Busy prints will help make the bust appear wider and fuller than it actually is.

I need support!

Sometimes it’s hard to see through the tiny triangles that wouldn’t even cover one boob let alone support the girls! But never fear there are plenty of options you just need to know what to look out for. Swimwear with boning, gripper tape and underwire offer structure and support so you aren’t worrying about any wardrobe malfunctions! A balconette style with moulded cups will offer you the best support and shape.

How do I smooth my tummy?

We are all about confidence and feeling comfortable in swimwear, so if for you that’s finding a way to help flatter and disguise any tummy troubles, look for swimsuits with powermesh for a slimming effect, or ruching to help disguise . There is no reason to ditch the bikini, try a high waist pant for coverage or a roll top band for soft edges – no muffin tops will be in sight!

I want enhance my killer curves!

If you’ve got the curves, lets embrace and show them off! Look out for cross over styles or gathered features as they will both accentuate the waistline and flatter the bust. Don’t be afraid to explore colours and patterns, in the right style they can be just as flattering as darker shades.

My booty game is strong!

A big booty is totally in right now, so we suggest trying the Kardashian look - the high cut leg line. This will help achieve an hourglass figure and lengthen your legs. But if you would rather disguise your booty, a boyleg or skirted bottoms will provide great coverage and help disguise. If you are looking for fuller coverage, mesh sarongs or cute board shorts are perfect!

How do I rock my petite physique?

Show off your trim tummy with triangle and strapless bikinis or dip your toes into cut out designs and monokinis for an ultra daring look. If you want to create some shape it’s all about the detail… features like frills, ruffles, mesh and ruching will compliment your petite frame. If you have an athletic figure show off your toned arms with a high neck bikini top, which will give you some shape too!

If you are ready to tackle your bikini shopping, then you need to do two things; book in for a spray tan and a tidy-up wax to make the change room experience less daunting, then head over to our friends at Swimwear Galore - they have something to suit every body!
