Have You Met Goya?
E to F Cup Swimwear
Goya is our brand new E cup and F cup bikini top, and you have come to the right place to meet her!
This blog is going to guide you through the ins and outs to our brand new Goya bikini top.
Let me start by introducing you to the artist that she is named after, Francisco Goya. Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes was a Spanish expressive romantic painter and printmaker. He is considered the most important Spanish artist of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. His artistic creations, from painting through to etching reflected contemporary historical upheavals, this has influenced many 19th and 20th century painting. These quite dark painting featured heavy black and sepia tones creating a mode for themselves. Goya is often referred to as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the modern artists.
Introducing Goya E Cup to F Cup Bikini Top
Artesands Fits Your Curves. Goya is our new full cup bikini top style with all the bells and whistles. This curve fit and plus size bikini swimsuit has underwire support to fit a E cup to F cup, and full body 360 degree powermesh for body sculpting confidence. Goya curve fit and plus size bikini top has features powermesh in the front cups and also powermesh in the back wings to support the upper back and has a covered bra back hook and eye fastening to give you extra adjustability, just like you would get with your favourite bra.
This is the first collection we are bringing you with this beautiful design. This classic swim top offers the ultimate support, comfort, and superior fit for our curvier, fuller cupped Artesands girl. The cups are designed to give full coverage, support, and lift for a full E to F cup and feature a flattering panel line to add interest and flatter the bust. The cross over binding detail under the bust has been inspired by E cup and F cup bra designs and is the perfect design feature as it allows for a great fit and is flattering design line. Something that has also been inspired by bra technology is our hook and eye back closure, this was first introduced to you in our Monet bikini top and is now a feature on our Goya style and gives you the option to make the under bust band bigger or smaller to suit your shape. This hook and eye closure allows you to move the fitting to best fit your body size, it has three different sizing options. Allowing you to have great adjustability and it is designed to support but not cause discomfort.
Now let’s get into all of the details that make this brand new bikini top all its cracked up to be! First thing, lets talk about support.
E - F Cup Underwire Support
Our Goya curve fit and plus size swim top has E cup to F Cup underwires for support. These underwires are stronger than normal underwires they are designed with a larger cup size in mind. So you are getting a wire that will not bend or move. This is a wire that will hold its shape after every wash and swim. The wires will give you the right strength and support your fuller bust needs. The underwires are encased in a soft casing that sits gently against your skin, so you should not feel the wire while wearing and swimming in our new Goya bikini top.
Tricot stabilized front
Our Goya curve fit and plus size swim top has ridged tricot hidden at the front bridge. This is the centre front of the bikini top. The extra support in this area ensures your swimsuit is designed to be washed and swam in many times without losing its shape or support. This tricot stabilizer also makes sure the underwires stay in the perfect position to make sure you get the perfect fit each and every time you put your swimsuit on.
Our Goya bikini top is lined with powermesh in the front cups and back wings. So that is giving you 360 degrees support around your body. Have you read our powermesh blog? It is the perfect way to get your head around what it is and how much it really helps support and smooth your curves. The front powermesh helps give the bust extra lift and support, much better than regular lining. The back wings also have powermesh to helps smooth out any lumps or bumps under the arms and at your upper back around to the centre back hook and eye closure.
Other design features are shown below
Cross over front under bust feature with wide binding
The under bust on this bikini top has a cross over at the centre front with a stunning wide binding feature. This aesthetic effect joins the two underwires and cups together as well as serving a fitting function. This gentle cross over allows for the centre front to not dig in, sometimes this can happen with very wide centre fronts. Instead allowing the front to cross over means your curves are not constrained or restricting, giving a softer more comfortable fit. Our Goya style also features a nice wide under bust binding feature. This is designed to look stylish but also helps keep the under bust band down and keeps it in place firmly against your skin.
Strap clip technology
Our Goya curve fit and plus size swim top has our strap clip technology. The strap clip is located on your back shoulder blades and allows you to cross over the straps. This gives you the option of crossing over the straps and changing this style to become an action back. This is helpful to give your bust more lift and sometimes can reduce pain, adjusting the position of the straps from the centre of the shoulder to come up around your neck and cross over at the back helps reduce the discomfort this can sometimes cause your shoulders and neck. Tailor the style to your own fit by using our new "Strap Clip" technology, to unhook and cross the straps to create an action back style.
Self fabricated hook and eye
Our Goya curve fit and plus size swim top has a wide three clasp, hook and eye back that is bonded with self fabric. Being in the same self fabric gives the illusion of a seamless finish it is a nice soft close finish much nicer than a hard plastic clip against your back. It makes this style easy to take on and off. It also provides you with extra adjustability and support. This secures the bikini top in place with the ability to loosen or tighten it to three different levels. If you have bought our Monet bikini top before this has the same feature!
Adjustable wide shoulder straps for extra comfort and support
We have designed Goya to have wider and thick straps than most normal swimsuits. Also we use wider and stronger rings and sliders to avoid any breaking or rubbing, the wide straps sit flush on the shoulder and helps reduce digging in or causing you any discomfort.
Soft touch, high stretch swim fabric
All of our fabrications are amazing soft to touch fabric with high 4 way stretch for support and comfort. Our Rhapsody fabric, which is the first fabrication we offer our new Goya style in, is a luxurious textured fabric, wonderful to touch and wear. It has a lovely, raised surface design that is beautiful to wear but also has a wonderful stretch recovery. Your garment will stretch in four different directions and will bounce back into shape after every wash and wear.
Make our new Goya bikini top a set with one of our matching swim pants! There’s nothing better than a perfect matching swimwear set, love when dressing becomes easy and you don’t even need to think about what you are going to match this top back to, unless you want the option of our two pants of course!

What's Good About A Textured Fabrication?
Trust me when I say, textured swimwear is the most beautiful swimsuit I think I have ever worn! I often hear people asking questions thinking that the extra thickness of the fabric would add onto your body, trust me when I tell you it does the exact opposite!
Our Rhapsody fabrication is a mixture of nylon/elastane with a thicker weight then our standard printed and solid hues ranges. This heavier weight of the fabric and high elastane percentage helps to sculpt your curves and create a beautiful form to the body. Having increased the elastane percentage, it helps the return of the fabric - meaning once the swimsuit is stretched onto your body, the elastane pulls it back into place helping the powermesh to work its wonders!
The texture in our Rhapsody range are little rectangles going across your body, this sculpts your curves and adds extra support. When pulled out around your curves this gives an almost honeycomb effect. If you have worn our black Aria swimsuits, I bet you can vouch! It might to time to invest in a new texture, you can never have too many swimsuits coming into summer.
