SHOULD I SIZE UP IN YOUR PIECES AS MOST SWIMWEAR RUNS SMALL?
We specialise in fuller busted swimwear and ensure that our sizing runs true to size to help you get the correct fit every time, so no, we recommend going with your usual size, unless you're between sizes (i..e 12-14) and then sometimes we suggest you size up. All our styles are designed and fitted on actual women, so we take into consideration the female form when finalising our sizing for each style. We always recommend you try our e-Fitting service to confirm your size.
SHOULD I JUST PURCHASE MY USUAL BRA SIZE?
If you find the fit of your bra perfect - and we mean nice and firm band (doesn't ride up at the back), underwires sitting flush against your skin and no digging in/bulging/gaping - then you can purchase your usual bra size. Note: If your dress size is smaller than your bra size (i.e. you're a size 8 dress but wear a 12D bra, or you're a size 12 dress but wearing a 14F bra), then you're wearing the wrong bra size and should get in touch. Your bra band should generally not be bigger than your dress size. If you think you’d like to check your sizing beforehand, you can do this via our e-Fitting service.
Note: If you're purchasing a one piece and your bottom half is larger than your top half (i.e you're a 12F bra and 14 brief), you would try a size 14E to ensure you have a nice fit on both the top and bottom half. If you'd like to confirm this with us, please go though our e-Fitting service.
WHY DON’T YOU HAVE YOUR SIZING CHARTS AVAILABLE ONLINE?
We don’t have our sizing charts online, as we have found people sometimes get their measurements wrong, which then causes them to order the incorrect size. It can be a tricky business measuring yourself and measurements only tell part of the sizing story, especially with bra sizing! We recommend our e-Fitting service to all of our customers so we can assist with sizing after we get a few details from you.
SHOULD I GO FOR A BIKINI OR A ONE PIECE?
You can go for whatever you feel like! You’re never "too old" for a bikini or one piece. We encourage women to love and embrace their bodies and to wear whatever piece suits their personal style. Again we recommend going through our e-Fitting service so we can assist with sizing and from here we can recommend sizing for you!
ARE YOUR TOPS BREASTFEEDING FRIENDLY?
All of our tops and one pieces are breastfeeding friendly and allow for easy access when needed. In saying that they do also offer great support and help to hold you in with little hands pulling and grabbing at you all the time! Note: Whilst we don't offer a wire-free option, you can safely wear a wired swimsuit if you're wearing the right size top. Why don't you try our e-Fitting service so we can help you get the right size?
I AM PREGNANT, WHAT BRIEFS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND?
We recommend our Arianna Briefs as they are lower cut and will sit under the belly. You will be fine in our high-waisted briefs until around 4-5 months, but after that time you'll start to feel them cutting into your growing belly. We don't recommend one pieces past 4 months because they can be quite tricky with a rapidly changing body shape!
CAN I PURCHASE TWO SIZES TO COMPARE AND RETURN THE ONE THAT DOESN’T FIT?
Yes this is definitely possible! We do ask that you get the incorrect size back to us ASAP so another busty lady can purchase her size. All returns need to be back at our HQ within 30 days of purchase, so have a quick read of our Returns Policy here! Why don't you quickly do a size-check with us in case we can steer you in the right direction? We do this all the time!
YOU’RE OUT OF MY SIZE - IS THERE ANOTHER SIZE I CAN PURCHASE?
Luckily for you, you’re able to sister size in our swimwear (all styles minus the Emelie Top!). You can see our sister sizing charts here. We generally don't recommend people size up in the band for a sister size - only size down - so send us a quick email or size check so we can help you nail it!
DO YOU RECOMMEND THE SAME SIZE IN ALL BIKINI STYLES?
Generally, yes. That being said, a few different styles of ours have deeper or shallower cups, and depending on your bust size or your preferred level of coverage, you could fall in between cup sizes. For example, our best-selling Emelie Bikini Top has shallow cups and is designed to be a busty/revealing fit - some women love this and just order their usual cup size or some women prefer more coverage and size up. Best to check your sizing with us if you’re unsure.
I NEED A SIZE 6 BAND - WILL ANY OF YOUR SIZE 8D-8H TOPS FIT ME?
Good news! We're making most of our tops available in tie-backs just for people like yourself. This means that you can purchase your sister size. What do we mean by this? Depending on your cup size, you may be able to sister size up in the band (and down in the cup) and still get a really great fit in our tie back options. Best to check in with our team to make sure this is possible in the style you’re after.
