Two Piece Swimsuits Without Tummy Gap

I want to wear a two-piece swimsuit but I don’t want a tummy gap.

We have a couple of options for you.
Our first option is a tankini set, our curve fit and plus size tankini tops are long length and when worn back with one of our curve fitting swim pants, our tankini tops will overlap by a large amount allowing extra coverage and no risk of exposing a tummy gap even when in the water or jumping up and down with your hands over your head.

Long Torso

Curvy swimsuits to suit a long torso

There is nothing worse than the dragging down or the pulling up effects of a curvy one piece swimsuit when it doesn’t fit your shape correctly.
We have adjustable straps on all our curve fit and plus size one piece swimsuits. So, if your torso is just slightly longer, you can adjust our straps to give you a little more length.

Different Size Top to Bottom

My top half is smaller than my bottom half, so I don’t know what size to buy

This is our favourite question, as it is so easy to answer. You need a curvy swimsuit that is a 2 piece. You can buy our swim tops and swim pants separately and you do not have to buy the same size.

Curvy Swimsuit for an E Cup

I am an E Cup, what is the best swimsuit for me?

Our Raphael family is the style for you! Raphael is the style that we like to say has all of the bells and whistles, It is our full E Cup / F Cup underwire style with extra bust support for a heavy bust.

Depending on breast tissue if you prefer an underwire free option you can also go with our Multifit cup Delacroix. This has the support from the Multifit and surrounding Powermesh.

Swimsuit Tight on the Body

I am very long in the body so the swimsuit feels very tight.

If you have a long body it is best to purchase either our tankini or bikini tops with matching pants. All of our tankini and bikini tops are designed to match back with the printed pants or our hues signature black range if it is a black based print. Our Tankini tops have extra length added to the torso and when wearing, look exactly like a one piece with the extra room!


Avoid Tan Lines

I want to avoid tan lines but have breast that still need to be supported, which is the best suit for me?


This question resonates with me perfectly! There is nothing worse than spending all day lazing out on a beach and then going to work with visible tan lines, it gets to me! We have good news for you, our Botticelli Bandeau One Piece and Bikini Top both have the option to be a strapless swimsuit style that still offers the support with a D Cup / DD Cup underwire so those babies aren’t going anywhere!


My boobs are too small to fill out the swimsuit cups


No one’s boobs are too small. Your boobs are just right for your body. 

When choosing your new curvy swimsuit it is important to buy for your body shape and your cup size is one of those important fit measurements.

On our website you can easily find swimsuits that will suit you to your bra cup size by clicking on the shop by cup size link on the home page.
