Plein Air


Let’s get out in the Plein Air

Let’s run around in the Plein Air

Let’s live life in the Plein Air


Plein Air is all about being yourself and being true to yourself in REAL LIFE. Plein Air painting is capturing life as it is outdoors.  We encourage all our Artesands curvy babes to get out in the Plein Air and be themselves in true vivid colours. Plein Air is light and bright and the perfect swimsuit to start off the summer with a bit of colour.




Mix and Match


Plein Air has been designed to mix and match back with our Figaro Blue collection. The hues of Plein Air and it's soft animal print complement the deeper tones of Figaro Blue perfectly. The piece that ties this all together is our reversible pant, with the delicate Plein Air design on one side and the bold Figaro Blue on the other. This is the perfect pant to buy if you want a little bit of both worlds!

Our reversible pant has been designed with each edge having a discrete top stitch so you cannot see the reverse side of the print. This holds the pant in place whilst allowing it to stretch over your curves.

The beauty of our mix and match collections is that you can mix any pant with any top in the size that you need! Here at Artesands we know not any two bodies are created the same, we strive to normalize the women’s body in how it is naturally made, no photoshop, or after effects here, we want all women to feel comfortable in there skin and enjoy the summer.

Monet Bikini Top


Monet is named after a French painter Claude Monet, a founder of French Impressionist painting. Monet was the philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to Plein Air landscape painting. He painted beautiful landscapes and quite often captured beautiful lakes with floating lily pads, like something you would see in a dream.

Our Monet bikini top is one of our newest silhouettes added to the Artesands range. Monet is our take on a relaxed comfortable natural shaped cup. 

Features and benefits of our curve fit plus size Monet bikini top:


  • Underwire style, best fitted to a D cup, DD cup, and E cup
  • Removable soft foam cups
  • Loop through twist front detail which creates a beautiful soft sweetheart shaped neckline
  • Thick adjustable straps to adjust to your torso length that won’t dig into your shoulder blades
  • Strap clip technology, Tailor your own fit by using the new "Strap Clip" technology, to un clip and cross the straps for extra support. Read more about our strap clip technology on the blog here!
  • Three hook and eye adjustable back strap closure. This hook and eye design is bonded with printed fabric. This gives you the features of having this closure without looking like a bra fitting
  • Full cup powermesh which gives the ultimate bra cup support and bust shape definition
  • Deep centre bridge, this allows for great bust support without being too plunging but having that little bit of cleavage, we all want to look sexy in a swimsuit!

Sun Safe Top


Here in Australia, we have always been very aware of the sun's harmful UV rays which is why we offer a range of rash guards. If you are out in the sun all day or for extended periods of time we recommend investing in one of our sunsafe tops. These tops give you UV protection and are designed to match back perfectly to each print that we offer. Our Plein Air Sunsafe Top is the perfect addition to your swimsuit collection.

All our curve fit plus size rash vests have a raglan sleeve which adds extra circumference to the upper arm for comfort and freedom of movement. They all also include a full length zip to get the rash guard on and off easily, we know there’s nothing worse than trying to pull a wet rashie over your head when you get home!



  • Womens Rashies Plus Size. Our plus sized rash vests are designed to match back with our beautiful prints so you can have a coordinated swimsuit on the beach this summer!
  • Short Sleeved Swimwear. Our most favourite plus size rash vest is the short sleeve swimwear style available in a variety of prints! This mid sleeve plus size rash vest is made from our luxuriously soft Nylon Elastane to match the high quality of our curve fit swimwear. Each plus size rashie has an adjustable full length front zipper so you can easily throw it on over your curvy swimsuit. We also have a long sleeve rashie available in our Hues Signature range for full arm protection.
  • Panel Detail. To get the very best fit in our short sleeve swimwear rash vest we include a panel line through the body. This helps our women's rashies plus size have shape and compliment the natural curve of a woman's body. For extra support and comfort wear your plus size rashie over one of our swimwear tops.
