We work hard all year to enjoy our holidays, so it’s only natural to want to feel great while sunbathing at the beach. Wearing a sexy bikini can give you that poolside confidence, helping you to feel your best self while swimming, here or abroad. Whether you choose a teeny bikini or fancy a flattering swimming costume, our range of sexy swimwear has something to suit everyone.

What are the different styles of sexy swimwear?

Just like lingerie, different styles of swimwear will suit different body shapes and sizes. If you want to flaunt your figure or embrace your curves while on holiday, sexy beach wear can help you to feel amazing all day. So, which style should you choose?

Bikini tops
Finding a cute bikini to strut your stuff in can be difficult if you wear two different sizes. This is where buying separate sexy bikini tops and bottoms helps. If you have a small to medium cup size, a triangle bikini top will give a gorgeous shape and is fully adjustable due to the tie back and halter style. Bandeau bikini tops create minimal tan lines and look great paired with high waisted shorts.

For those with medium to large cup sizes, a balconette bikini top gives a stunning silhouette and a vintage aesthetic while supporting your bust. Plunge and halter neck bikini tops with straps give your bust a rounder, more accentuated shape, giving a super sexy look to your beach wear without you having to worry about any underwater top malfunctions.

Tankini tops
Tankini tops are like a full-length bikini top, providing coverage to your tummy without being enclosed at the bottom like a swimsuit. Tankini tops are ideal for women who still want to feel sexy but perhaps don’t want to show their whole stomach or hips. There are plenty of sexy tankini styles, including those made from lace, styles with frills or those with plunge bras. There are also some styles which look like a mini dress – a super cute alternative to a regular swimsuit or bikini.

Bikini bottoms
Like bikini tops, buying bikini bottoms separately can ensure that you get the perfect size for you. It also allows you to mix styles of tops and bottoms, giving you the best shapes to suit your figure and help you to feel comfortable. Classic bikini briefs suit most shapes and have great coverage at both the front and back with wide panels at the side that hug your hips.

If you dare to bare a little more, sexy tie side bikinis have ribbons or strings that tie in a bow at the side, keeping the front and back joined. Or, if you’re tummy conscious, high waist bikini bottoms will streamline your figure and nip your waist in, giving you an enviable hourglass shape.

Bikini sets
If you wear the same size all over and want to make life easier for yourself, choosing a sexy bikini set takes all the hard work of choosing separates out of the equation. Bikini sets are suitable for women of all sizes, with triangle, bandeau and underwired plunge style bras and tie side, Brazilian or regular style briefs. Make a statement at the pool with a beautiful bikini that flatters your figure. As they come already paired, these styles also tend to be a lot more affordable, meaning you can look just as sexy at a fraction of the price.

Swimming costumes
Wearing less isn’t always the sexier option – a sexy swimming costume can leave you looking classy while showing off your best assets at the same time. Halter neck swimsuits with underwires will keep your bust looking full, round and supported and you won’t feel like your bust is going to fall out while swimming. Swimsuits with cut out details are also a fantastic way of showing some skin without exposing all of your tummy. Alternatively, a full swimsuit with a lace overlay gives the same impression as lace underwear without having to show as much skin. And swimsuits with belt or ruching details will give you that desired hourglass shape, drawing attention to the smallest part of your body – your waist.

Can you get sexy plus size bikinis?

There are plenty of options for sexy plus size bikinis. Brands like Elomi, Pour Moi and PrimaDonna offer a wide range of styles and shapes for those needing plus size swimwear. If you’re more body-conscious than confident, we recommend a plus size swimsuit which can do wonders for your silhouette, from streamlining lumps or bumps to enhancing your curves. They can even minimise your bust-line, if that’s what you desire. Plus size bikinis are often designed similar to bras with side support panelling and plunge cuts, as well as coming with or without padding, meaning you can get the shape, size and style you require. What’s more, plus size bikinis don’t only focus on shape and support. There are plenty of on-trend prints and elegant styles meaning you don’t have to substitute style for support.

What should I look for when choosing sexy swimwear?

The most important thing to consider when choosing swimwear is that you feel supported enough to swim and sunbathe anything falling down or falling out! If you’re unsure what suits you, it’s a good idea to choose a few styles to try. You might discover that you feel most confident in a tankini when you’ve only previously worn swimsuits, or a sexy bikini might make you feel even better.
