Will animal prints ever go out of style?

Oh, look maybe one day - but definitely NOT today or any time soon. Animal prints have seemed to have found their way into our hearts and we definitely can’t see them going anywhere any time soon.   

 Wearing an animal print is seriously just like wearing the new black. Animal prints have become complete staples in our wardrobes. A leopard print dress is a regular go-to item in our fashion wardrobe and this is no different for our swimsuits. We seriously love a good animal print, and we know you do to, so let us introduce you to our latest newly released print fresh from the wild … Ser’Piente.

Our Latest Newly Released Classic Animal Print


Ser’Piente, is our latest released animal snakeskin print,  welcome to your wildest dreams.


With all of our wild prints we encourage our women to bring out the animal within... and with our latest print Ser’Piente we are encouraging our Artesands babes to channel and tap into their hidden Medusa. 

 Medusa was a protectress from Greek mythology she was ravishingly beautiful with hair of venomous serpents. She represented female rage and she is believed to be the essence of all female power. We ask all our Artesands women to reclaim your Medusa like power. Be strong.   

Feel the danger ahead 

 She’s dark, She’s mysterious 

 She’s the Medusa inside

The details of our two best-selling Ser’piente print shapes are listed below, So which curvy swimsuit shape do you prefer?

Animal print one piece plus size swimsuit style to suit a DD cup bust the best.

Every curvy girl needs a swimsuit that makes us feel good when we put it on and for us at Artesands this is our Delacroix shape. 

Our Delacroix one piece swimsuit style is one of our best-selling multifit cup curvy swimsuit styles. 

 Our Classic Delacroix one piece shape has wire free comfort and support with full body powermesh for tummy control and body sculpting confidence. This style has multifit cup support that fits a range of D - G cup, the sewn in cup has a powermesh surrounds so it can fit a larger or smaller cup depending on the wears confidence and breast tissue. 

 Other great benefits of our Delacroix plus size one piece shape is the scoop back with high under-arm coverage, front panel ruching with wide adjustable straps for comfort and support.    

Animal print one piece plus size swimsuit style to suit a C cup bust the best.

The second curvy swimsuit one piece style we offer in our Ser’Piente collection is our Botticelli shape.  ‘Be sculptured by Botticelli’. 

 This shape is another of Artesands best-selling timeless curve fit swimwear shapes. Our Botticelli one piece swimsuit is also a multifit cup style that fits a cup range of C - DD cup, with soft moulded form cups, full body sculpting with our own Artesands 360-degree powermesh and front ruching designed to shape and flatter your curves. Everyone loves the disguising benefits of our tummy ruching. Another great advantage of our Botticelli shape is our strap clip technology.

Our Plein Air print was designed as a mix and match story.

The collection co-ordinates beautifully with our recently released Figaro - in soprano blue.

Plus Size Animal Print Tankini Top


If you’ve worn our Botticelli curve fit one piece swimsuit style, then you know all the benefits that this style can bring… but our Botticelli Tankini top brings even more benefits. 

From its body sculpting nature to its easy fit and easy wearability. There nothing better than a swimsuit where you know the fit is good and you feel comfortable wearing it.   

Our Artesands curve fit and plus size tankini shapes look like you are wearing a one piece but have all the benefits of a 2-piece swimsuit. Our tankini tops when paired back with one our matching swim bottoms will look like you are wearing a one piece.  Perfect if your body is like most of the population and you are a different size top to bottom, buying a tankini will provide the best fit for your body.


As all our Botticelli shapes, the Botticelli tankini top has a multifit cup, fitting best a C - DD cup. 

As there are no underwires in this style, the bust support comes from the soft cups sewn into powermesh with a shelf bra supported by strong under bust elastic. Thick wide adjustable straps are designed for extra support and comfort.

Our straps on all our Botticelli styles are convertible, with our strap clip technology. Where the wearer can unclip the strap clips and cross them over for the added support that cross back straps give for the weight of a larger bust. To learn more about our how our strap clips work - read our blog post: Strap Clip Technology.

Soft Cup Bikini Top for supporting an E cup


A new shape that we added to our collection is Monet, our first soft cup bikini top. 

Our new Monet bikini top is a full support underwire bikini top suited for a D – E cup. This style has a relaxed and comfortable natural shape cup with added features of a deep centre bridge, with a feminine neckline offering support without being too plunging.   

 Our Monet bikini top also has wide adjustable straps with strap clip detail and our newest and exciting feature that is our back clasp that is a 3 hook and eye bra like clasp which is great for adjustability and extra support.

So why do we love a good Animal print?

Well obviously because it brings out our hidden Rawrrrr


But on a serious note, a good animal print is flattering, stylish and easy to wear.  An animal print swimsuit as long as you care for your garment following our ‘how to launder your swimsuit’ details can be your seasonal go to swimsuit item season after season.
