Swim Buying Guide

Finally, can you feel it? The heat of warmer seasons has begun to break through cold cracks in the air. Whether you are dreaming of lounging poolside or have already booked your beach-bound vacation, swimsuits are at the forefront of many people’s fashion consciousness. Shopping for swimwear can be intimidating and even uncomfortable, but we promise it doesn’t have to be. Feeling confident is key, and finding the right pieces that flatter your figure and make you feel comfortable will make all the difference. No matter your preference (bikini, one-piece, or swim skirts) or favorite trends (lingerie-inspired, invisible shaping, or the coquette phenomenon), your body is one of a kind and a piece of art regardless of your size. We've tapped into our teams on how to identify each body type so you can get your best-fitting swimsuit yet.

How to Measure:

Measure under your arms that’s around the fullest part of your chest. 

Measure around your natural waistline. To ensure a comfortable fit, do not pull the tape too tight. 

Hips Measure around the fullest part of the body, about 7 to 9 inches below the natural waistline.

Tummy Control

Discover a swimsuit designed with thoughtful details for a flattering illusion that give the perfect amount of tummy control like ruching along the sides or across the front. For a visually slimming style, choose a suit with color-blocking, diagonal seams, stripes, tankini sets, a high-rise, or one that draws the eyes up, away from your midsection by its unique neckline, like a one-shoulder. 


Contour and provide tummy control while shaping and slimming your silhouette in and out of the water with a supportive swimsuit. Choose a comfortable fabric with built-in stretch in flowy shapes, high-waist styles, or with ruching details for a body-flattering effect.
