But whenever you go on holiday, the same question always rears its head – which swimwear styles suit curves?

There are two main things you can do with your curves; you can emphasize your gorgeous shape or you can minimize them to gain symmetry in your figure. At Panache we want you to feel as stunning as possible on and off the beach so here’s some advice on what to do.


For you lovely ladies who want to emphasize your curves the objective is to enhance that beautiful hourglass shape.

To do this you should be looking for swimwear like our Stella Plunge Tankini which offers a plunging neckline, equal detailing top and bottom, and the same colour throughout the set to enhance your figure. Another great way to accentuate your curves is with a high leg as seen with our Lola moulded bikini, which offers extra support with wide front straps meaning you’re comfortable and beach ready.


For the ladies who would prefer to minimize their curves – to obtain balance with a pear shapes or streamline your tummy – the objective is to pick a feature to focus on that creates symmetry.

Pieces such as our Tallulah Tankini use panelling to draw the eye to your middle. By using contrasting colours at the side the sought after hourglass shape is created. Our Veronica swimsuit offers full coverage for those who prefer it and draw the eye to your bust line with a simple bow detail. Teamed with the ruching along one side, which draws the eye to the detailing, everyone will be left dazzled by your sumptuous shape.

What’s your favourite swimwear style?
