You’ve been waiting such a long time... 

 Finally our sophisticated black hues essential Hayes one piece is back!   

 It brings us such joy to be able to spruik ‘Back in stock’. Fist pumps!!    

 Is it just me or has this year seriously gone so fast and yet so slow at the same time? It’s been such a year of uncertainty, unplanning, taking each day as it comes. Actually, with that in my mind (and I think in reality) time literally has just flown by. To think this crazy year of 2020 is almost over.   

 For our loyal customers you may recall that we introduced our beautiful wrap front Hayes style in our range, way way way back last year, which received such a tremendous response and support from you all. But unfortunately, we only had the one initial drop in of Hues Hayes, it sold out so quickly and then 2020 happened and we have been waiting to reorder for soooo long. But now that summer is so close to being here, we have it back in stock and ready for you to be the Art of sophistication this summer.   

 For those of you that haven’t met Hayes yet, then let me introduce you.

Artesands Curve Plus Size One Piece Swimwear

Please Meet Hayes One Piece Swimsuit

Are you wanting a wrap around swimsuit that isn’t a wrap around swimsuit?   

 Hayes is seriously one of my favourite curve fit styles It’s a design that is a combination of stylish and yet under stated all at the same time. Our Hayes draped, wrap around front, with mock tie has all the functionality you need but with the fashion look of the season.  

A Wrap Around Look Swimsuit Wonder That Actually Fits

If we could summarise our Hayes style, the synopsis would be: 

 This beautiful sophisticated curvy fit style is our faux cross body front tie swimsuit that is totally figure flattering with all the internal support required for a D - E cup. 

It is a beautifully sculpted feminine style that has a hidden shelf bra with a full support underwire and with soft removable cups. 

Our wrap tie style has full body 360 degree powermesh for body sculpting, figure forming confidence as well as all the design principles for tummy control aesthetics.    

 But let me go into more detail so you can understand our Hayes style right down to the hygiene label.   

 Our Hayes sophisticated one piece swimsuit style was inspired by the life and works of Edwin Hayes an English water colourist who painted marine landscapes and portraits. 

You will notice that all of our ARTesands styles are named after and inspired by the most talented of all artists and curators.

Faux but not so Faux

Artesands Curve Plus Size One Piece Swimwear

The wrap around swimsuit with tie front is one of this summer’s greatest trends. At Artesands our designers have developed this style so that it actually looks good on and doesn’t make you look like your boobs are drooping down to the ground and have no support.      

Our front, cross the body-draped tie, is FAUX.    On the external of the garment we have the look of the wrap around body swimsuit trend, but as our look is mock, we are able to have all the internal construction we need to make you looking and feeling great.      

BUT most importantly you cannot tell our wrap around look is faux.     

 Having a faux look of this wrap around fashion trend, allows for all our principles of design, ideals and functionality that are the foundation of the Artesands brand - to fit your curves. 

We wanted to design a beautiful wrap feature that curves around the body creating a sculpting silhouette whilst not comprising the function of our garment. 

To do this we have made the tie a faux tie. Whilst it is a mock tie, you cannot tell from looking at it. 

The reasoning for this feature is so you feel secure in the swimsuit and it allows us to have ALL the internal construction we need for the ultimate curvy girl support.  

So What Makes Our Wrap Around Swimsuit Different To Others On The Market:

You may have seen a few cross body diagonal tie fronts this season, but we have made Hayes a bit different...as we normally do, we have created a fashion look but made to fit and support our curvy and plus size bodies. We make swimwear to fit your curves.

Artesands Curve Plus Size One Piece Swimwear


  • The front of our Hayes style has a faux wrap around cross body tie which is extremely flattering, when you look at our Hayes style you can not tell that it isn’t a true wrap around swimsuit.
  • We have gone with a fake tie so we can have the same fashion look but with all the support we require.

wide straps

  • All of our Artesands styles come with wide adjustable straps for comfort and the extra support.

draping effect

  • There is nothing better than the disguising effects of ruching or draping, and the wrap around style of this suit provides a beautiful, sophisticated shape while disguising any of those mid-section insecurities. 
  • Our draped front tie holds in place and gives you a diagonal ruched effect and makes your waist look slimmer, creating a beautiful hour glass shape. 

easy to pull on and take off

  • As this suit is a fake wrap around, you don’t need to worry about how to deal with the design in order to get in and out of the suit (nevertheless how long that may take to do as typically found with any traditional wrap around swimsuits). Hayes is just a quick easy pull up and on and your ready!

hidden front shelf bra

  • All the internal support you require 
  • With removable soft cups


  • No droopies with this style, the girls are fully supported 
  • Hayes is a fashion style for a D/DD cup however it fits comfortably up to an E cup.

full body 360 degree powermesh

  • There are so many functions of powermesh that it is hard to summarise in just one point. Its our little secret for body sculpting and shape forming. 
  • Total support, figure forming, body sculpting, enhancers bust support, figure flattering, tummy control, and just makes you feel good to name just a few benefits of powermesh. 
  • For more information on the power of powermesh click through here to read our blog.


  • As with all our curvy swimsuits, our Hayes is made from our luxurious soft hand feel fabric. Its four way stretch allows the fabric to mould perfectly to your body and curves whilst smoothing and shaping your frame. It is made with incredible craftsmanship to get the perfect knit and stretch.

This is the swimsuit for your next vacation (I promise they will be able to happen soon) – well I’m hoping any way.   

 While it is a swimsuit, this stylish style can be worn and styled with beach covers. It looks phenomenal with a soft cotton sarong or with a pair of beach shorts or linen pants. Pair it with some tan sandals and a wide brim hat and you are set for a day by the water or a seaside lunch.

Now, do yourself a favour and imagine yourself pool-side, laying out on a sun bed, warm sun soaking into your skin, water in the back ground noise in your new Artesands swimsuit. It is truly the only way to spend your summer or summer holiday.

 One more thing before we go…. 

Artesands Curve Plus Size Hues Swimwear

We can’t stress enough the importance of the laundering of your beautiful Artesands swimsuits. 

Please gentle hand wash immediately after use in warm soapy water. The beautiful elastane content of all swimsuits is effect by harsh chlorine chemicals (especially those found in resort or public pools and spas). 

If you wash immediately after wear it will prolong the life span of your beautiful curvy swimsuit.     

And as a final point of reinforcement.

Our vision is to help all women LOVE their bodies and feel comfortable in their own skin. Get out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine, as its your life to live.

 With love,
