There’s no denying that this time of year is holiday season. Everyone seems to be getting ready to go on their jollies and that means they need swimwear! If you’re anything like me, bikinis and swimsuits are the most important part of my suitcase – along with my passport and sunnies of course.
When you’re a D-K cup gal though, it can be quite a struggle to find something that fits and makes you feel good. The high street like to sell two piece bikinis in clothing sizes, we just KNOW that won’t work for us! But that’s where we come in – we’ve got a whole load of swimwear available in bra sizes, with bottoms sold separately so you can pick the right size for you! Just take a look at these gorgeous Curvy Kate SS18 swimwear ranges that are available now and get some major holiday style inspo:
Maya is without a doubt Curvy Kate’s statement swimwear range for this season and is gorgeous with a red floral print and bold black piping and caging details. It’s the only range from the SS18 collection to feature a swimsuit, but it’s an absolute stunner! The Maya halterneck swimsuit gives your bust serious shape and lift thanks to the built-in plunge bra with foam lined cups, and showcases edgy ladder cut out detailing to contour your curves.
If swimsuits aren’t quite your style, there’s also a bandeau bikini – based on the brand’s gravity-defying Luxe strapless bra – that has a fashionable sweetheart neckline and detachable straps to be worn in whatever ways you can imagine. The second option is the balconette bikini top – with foam lined cups for serious support and shape, and trendy caging detail to the centre gore.
The Maya range has two brief styles to compliment the tops, including a high waist style that mirrors the swimsuit’s ladder cut out detailing, as well as a fold over bikini brief that can be worn high or low on the hips to suit you. Overall the Maya range covers sizes 30-40 D-K and 42-44 D-G.
Get ready to ride the waves in Riptide! This gorgeous new offering from Curvy Kate is fashioned in a perfect shade of aqua blue and features an eye-catching wave print. The tankini top for Riptide is fashioned in a foam lined balconette style, with a hidden hook and eye fastening and a flattering fitted body for added coverage. The balconette bikini is similarly foam lined for support and lift, with straps that detach at the back to create a cross-over look.
There’s also a padded plunge bikini available that’s very similar to the brand’s AW17 Euphoria option. On trend with a high neck design and cheeky cut out detail, the over-the-shoulder straps make this a perfect choice for those who love a halterneck look but don’t love the strain it can cause! It’s also got a concealed bra with foam lined plunge shape cups to give you a great shape and perfect support.
Two styles of brief are available in this range – a fuller coverage retro short or a skimpier mini brief. The size range for Riptide covers 30-40 D-K and 42-44 D-G.
A monochrome must-have, Curvy Kate’s Diffuse swimwear range showcases two bikini tops, a tankini and two styles of brief so there’s definitely something for everyone. The tankini top features a built-in non-padded bra that’s cleverly concealed, as well as adjustable sides that allow you to find the perfect amount of coverage. The balconette bikini top is underwired with foam lined cups for massive support, and has detachable straps that can be crossed over at the back for two looks in one. There’s also a bandeau bikini top that’s a clever little option – a strapless style that’s again based on the brand’s popular Luxe strapless bra, with scarf neckties that can be worn in a number of ways.
Pair any of these three up with the retro short (full coverage with drawstring sides) or the mini brief (lower coverage with strap detail at the sides) for an instantly chic beach style. Diffuse is available in sizes ranging from 30-40 D-K, and 42-44 D-G.
Everyone LOVED Curvy Kate’s Revive swimwear range in aqua from a couple of seasons ago, and it’s been given an SS18 refresh in a stunning pink colour! It shows off a gorgeous Moroccan tile inspired print that’s perfect for any holiday destination, and the pink makes your tan look FAB-U-LOUS!
The range includes a tankini top that has a concealed, non-padded bra for perfect support, as well as a padded balconette bikini top that gives you killer lift, and a halterneck bikini top that boosts your cleavage and offers lower coverage.
There’s two styles of brief available for Revive pink: a fold over bikini brief that offers total control over your coverage (wear the folded waistband high or low to suit your mood), and a classic mini brief that offers maximum tanning space. Revive comes in sizes 30-40 D-K.
Another new range for Curvy Kate this season, meet Onyx! Truly sophisticated, Onyx boasts a gorgeous textured pinstripe mesh that feels luxurious, with gold hardware details to finish. The tankini top in the range has padded plunge cups to boost your cleavage and give great shape, while the drawstring sides mean you can adjust the coverage to suit you. There’s also a j-clip option on the straps you can pull it into a racerback shape to even out those tan lines! Onyx has two styles of padded bikini tops – a bandeau bikini top that has comes with detachable straps for a versatile, multiway option; and a plunge bikini top that features a j-clip just like the tankini.
Complete the look with either of the briefs – a cheeky tie side brief that can be adjusted for a perfect fit every time, or a fold over bikini brief for a bit more coverage. Onyx comes in sizes 30-40 D-J, and 42-44 D-G.
Jetty is one of Curvy Kate’s staple swimwear styles, also available in black, but has had a nautical navy refresh for SS18! Simplistic and stylish in plain navy with a delicate scalloped lace trims, Jetty has got three styles of bikini tops and three briefs to match – meaning there’s maximum mix-and-match-ability for a style to suit everyone.
The halterneck bikini top features non padded cups with wide straps to help disperse weight evenly (nobody likes neck strain from their boobs on holiday!) and offers a low cut neckline for less coverage. There’s a padded balconette bikini top that has foam lined cups to ensure you’re just as supported as you would be in a bra, while providing a lifted and rounded shape. Finally, the tankini top is a fuller coverage option that has a flattering fitted body, and has a hidden balconette bra to keep your girls in full control! Drawstring sides make it easy to adjust the coverage, too.
Mix and match with any of the three brief choices – a fold over brief that offers a classic bikini look with adjustable coverage, a high waist brief to give you retro vibes and a sleek silhouette, or the swim skirt that has a hidden brief underneath and makes beach-to-bar style a breeze. Curvy Kate Jetty Navy is available in sizes 30-40 D-K, and 42-44 D-G.
Nautical never goes out of style, and the stunning new Curvy Kate Ahoy swimwear range is bang on trend – you’ll be turning heads wherever you go in navy and white stripes with a pop of bold red. The halterneck top offers a triangle bikini style for the fuller bust, with an incredible plunging neckline that will showcase your curves perfectly. The padded balconette bikini top has foam lined, straight-across cups giving that faux half cup look, meaning your boobs will be lifted and supported cakes-on-a-plate style.
There’s also a tankini available that features the same structure as the halterneck bikini top, with a fitted body to flatter and provide more coverage. Like the rest of the tankinis in Curvy Kate’s swimwear collection, Ahoy also features drawstring sides to allow you control the length and coverage provided.
Ahoy features two styles of brief to pair up with your chosen top – a lower coverage tie side brief that allows the perfect fit every time, and a fold over brief that offers a classic bikini style with adjustable coverage. Curvy Kate Ahoy is available in sizes 30D through to 40J.
