For most of us, it’s already a daunting prospect to pull on our swimsuits, without the added pressure of the media telling us that our bodies need to be flawless.

We’re here to reassure you that every body is a beach-ready body – and by choosing the right swimwear brand for your body type, you’ll rock the beach this summer. Put the pressure on the beachwear, not on yourself!
From the best swimwear brands for curvy figures to swimwear brands for small or large busts, we’ve got a range of fabulous bikinis and swimsuits to suit all body types.
Luxury swimwear brands
A little luxury in your beachwear can be all you need to boost your confidence – whatever your body type. These items are designed to look glamorous and will draw the eye. Prestige swimwear brand Faithfull The Brand is one of our favourite swimwear labels offering all your need to hit the beach and strut your stuff.

You’ll feel confident and keen to show off your beach body even when you previously doubted yourself in the mirror!
Best swimwear brands for curvy figures
If you are looking for beautiful and flattering plus-size swimwear options, then browse our discounted swimwear brands from Reliked body-positive influencers including Tally Sharp and Isabella Duder, who rock plus-size swimwear brands including Fashionova and Freya.
Boohoo is also a great choice for curvy swimwear – take a look at Andrea Da Silva’s preloved wardrobe for bikini inspiration that’s both sassy and supportive in the areas you need it the most. Don’t let plus size put you off bikinis, or send you down the road of covering up. Embrace your curves and rock plus-size swimwear with confidence.
Best petite swimwear brands
For those of you with a petite figure, take a look at Prettylittlething for a range of swimwear that includes bandeau bikini tops and a fiery orange knotted style bikini that will get heads turning.
Our must-have addition to your summer wardrobe is these Prettylittlething beach flares that will take you from poolside to partying. You’ll be looking for excuses to wear them and may just need to invite everyone over just for the excuse! Team them with your favourite bikini top and a statement bracelet for an on-point look this summer. You’ll be the star of the show and look fabulous.
High-waist bikini bottoms and triangle bikini tops look great on a petite frame and Myra Swim swimwear has plenty of styles that all have an edgy nineties feel – allowing you to confidently boss a retro beachwear vibe – and get a golden glow in all the right places. These bikini combos also work exceptionally well for simply moving from beach to bar, with little more than the addition of a glamorous hat.
Swimwear brands for large bust
If the thought of searching for swimwear that supports bigger boobs fills you with dread, then check out our recommendations for swimwear brands that deliver on style and support without compromise.
ASOS have a range of brilliant beachwear brands that cater to the needs of ladies with a bigger bust – our favourite is this square-necked denim-style bikini in a geo-print that provides support from the straps while oozing seaside-style.
Underwired bikini tops provide additional support for a large bust, but they are often pretty pricey. However, some online stores and high street retailers including All Peace, Missguided and Pour Moi all have underwired bikini options which won’t break the bank. Save even more by browsing these top brands for preloved underwired bikini tops from celebs such as actress Louisa Lytton and travel blogger Emma Corrie-Hill.
Sustainable swimwear brands
No matter what your body type is, we are increasingly turning towards eco-friendly clothing ranges – and swimwear is no exception. You want your ethics to match your styling choices, even at the beach or the pool.
But can you stay stylish, yet sustainable, when it comes to beachwear? The answer is ‘yes’ – you just need to know which swimwear brands support sustainability.
We Are We Wear prioritises an ecological approach to fashion with its swimwear, utilising fabrics made from materials like fishing nets, industrial plastics and fabric scraps that would otherwise end up in landfill sites. It’s clever stuff and you’ll look and feel beautiful.
Another brand that ticks the boxes for those searching for sustainable swimwear is Faithfull The Brand, which uses regenerated nylon and recycled fibre to give the garments the comfort and flexibility that you expect from swimwear – while protecting the planet.
From the beach to the coolest cocktail bar…
After a day soaking up the sun, cool off in the cocktail bar without the hassle of getting changed, by throwing on a cover-up.
Whether you prefer an oversized, floaty kaftan, a flirty playsuit, or a crochet cover-up mini dress, we have plenty of choices to suit your style and body type. It’s the easiest ‘getting ready’ ever.
Shop swimsuits for all body types
As with any garment, swimwear comes in many designs to flatter different figures – and the most important thing is that you feel happy and confident in what you choose. Your body is amazing just the way it is – and we promise you’ll feel a whole lot better about putting on your swimsuit when you feel good in a swimsuit that suits your body type.
From bikini tops for fuller busts to swimwear brands that get extra points for sustainability, our Reliked swimwear shop has all you need to make this summer’s swimwear choice your best ever.
