Whether you’re jetting off to beautiful Positano on the Amalfi coast or planning a staycation closer to home, you deserve to feel confident, sexy and beautiful in your swimwear. At Elle Courbee we know that that right ensemble can make all the difference to your inner confidence, helping you to truly relax and enjoy yourself – be that on the pristine beaches of the Mediterranean or by the poolside with a glass of wine.
That’s why we’ve added our new swimwear line, providing figure hugging styles with built in support for all the right places. Unlike bikinis, a swimsuit can provide just the right amount of coverage which in turn, can help to create a flattering look. So whether you’re naturally voluptuous like Marilyn Monroe or slender like Kate Moss, a swimsuit is guaranteed to suit all body types. Don’t get us wrong, plus size women can wear bikinis, it’s just that our fledgling swimwear line is currently focused on one piece costumes.
Here are our favourite plus size swimwear pieces to help you feel amazing:
Join the tribe – Safari Swimsuit
If you’re looking for a bright and bold swimsuit, then our African designed Safari Swimsuits are the perfect choice for you. Available in two contrasting designs, a beautiful aqua and vibrant pink, and in sizes ranging from 16 to 24, we’re sure you’ll agree plus size swimwear has never looked so good. Of course to look good, you also need to feel comfortable, which is why these swimsuits have adjustable straps and soft foam cups, so you can enjoy the benefits of a figure hugging designs with the added bonus of built in support. Animal prints are bang on trend this summer, so unleash your inner wild spirit in one of these beauties.
Fantastic florals – Teal Floral Swimsuit
We know it’s the mainstay for fashionistas and is ultra slimming for daytime and evening wear, but you really don’t need to resort to wearing black when it comes to swimwear. At Elle Courbee, we’re really into bold designs for our swimwear, so as well as animal print, we’ve also selected a beautiful floral swimsuit for you. Florals continue to be a popular trend amongst many retailers, both online and on the high street, and it’s fantastic for swimwear as it’s eye catching and definitely adds a feminine touch. Our Floral Swimsuit is available in a bright teal, and just like our Safari swimwear, it offers great built in support. Available in sizes 16 to 24, this elegant swimwear will not only hold you in in all the right places, but also accentuate those curves.
Complete the look
Don’t forget to complete the look by adding a few beach and summer essentials. When poolside, we recommend the following for chic riviera styling: a light kaftan, a floppy sunhat, a straw cross body bag, some retro sunglasses and some ultra-minimal sandles in animal print detailing. Of course, and most importantly of all, don’t forget some sun protection and water for keeping hydrated.
No we’re not talking about the lotion you reach for when you’ve spent a little too long out in that midday sun, sipping on cocktails or perhaps enjoying a siesta, we’re in fact referring to the care of your swimwear. Here are some tips to help prolong the life of your Elle Courbee swimwear:
- Place your swimwear in a mesh laundry bag to help protect their delicate material should you wish to wash them in a washing machine.
- Invest in some Soak wash for an eco friendly way to wash your swimwear by hand post swim. We particularly like this as you haven’t got to rinse it out afterwards.
- Take more than one swimsuit with you when going away on holiday, as this will allow you to wash one and wear one.
- Try to avoid drying your swimsuit in direct sunlight as this can cause fading. This can be difficult when most hotels have a drying rack out on the balcony. Perhaps consider using one over the bathtub until the sun starts to go down.
- Remember that the dye from swimwear can sometimes bleed when wet, so try to avoid wearing light coloured clothing over the top when drying off.
We’re continually updating our lines so keep an eye out for new products, and remember we offer a 30 day return policy for full peace of mind. Have a fantastic holiday, wherever you’re off to, and keep rocking that curvacious body in your fabulous swimwear!
