We believe that every body is beautiful and ‘beach ready’ - whatever your shape or size. However, when the holiday season heats up, a lot of women begin to feel nervous about baring their bod at the beach. In our opinion, the key to giving your confidence a boost is to choose swimwear that fits, flatters and flaunts your unique shape. So to help you feel your best, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite swimsuits that boast some simple yet smart solutions. From hidden tummy control to concealed underwires and longer length styles, find the perfect swimwear to suit your needs, wherever your travels take you.

This one-piece may look like an ordinary swimsuit, but it has some clever little tricks going on behind the seams. Specially designed to create a flattering silhouette, the Figleaves Illusion Swimsuit combines draping details with a wrap-around front and tummy control for firm shaping. We love the bold magenta colourway too! Or look to our Figleaves Tuscany Stripe Swimsuit in a longer length style. It’s been expertly crafted for longer bodies, so you can feel great in and out of the water. Plus the light padding and hidden tummy control creates an extra smooth shape.

It’s easy to see why the Figleaves Tuscany Spot Swimsuit is a bestseller. Not only does it sport a classic polka dot print, but it’s amazingly supportive with underwired cups, an adjustable halterneck strap and a tummy control panel. For a sexier look, opt for the Figleaves Icon Spot Mesh Swimsuit. With its retro-inspired sweetheart neckline and spot mesh detail, it features comfy underwires, secret shaping and is also available in a longer length design too! Say hello to ultimate beach confidence.
