Ease Back Into a Bikini With This Winning Style!

Anita McLachlan - 1st July 2021

Ease back into summer confidence with this very popular bikini style (in plus sizes too). Maz from Maz Lifestyle shows the way!

When this bikini style was released earlier this year, it sold out in minutes. In plus sizes too. If it's been a while since you got into a bikini, then this winning style could be THE one. Here's why.

  • The 'tummy gap' is not as wide as a regular bikini - so the 'exposure' is less confronting (when worn like Maz does with a high waisted pant style)
  • The 'crop top' style offers great versatility - it can be worn confidently beyond the pool and beach with shorts, pants, skirts, sarongs
  • It offers more back coverage - over those hard to reach to apply sunscreen areas between the shoulder blades
  • It's really cute!

Available in sizes 10-22 and best for a B-E cup, this top is not only versatile in terms of the outfits you can create with it, but it also offers great fit flexibility.

Wrap the straps around as much as you like to suit your mood and shape.

Wear it with a high waisted pant in the same Leopard print or go for the Retro inspired Ruched version that offers more coverage at the front.

Wear the Ruched Pant with the front fabric panel down or up (as Maz does) and you have 2 different looks in the pant as well. Boom!

Fit Tip: The pant in the Leopard print may fit a bit more firmly than other prints and plains in the same cut. So if you are between sizes eg: a 16/18 then size up.

See What Maz from our Cossie Confidence Crew says about this bikini in her words, not ours. She's a massive fan of this style. Here's a video she did to explain why she loves this bikini style the most. Find more Maz here on Instagram @Mazlifestyle she's bloody awesome.

Style Tips - Create A Knockout Look:
Compete your outfit by adding a fabulous frilled mesh sarong for a glam look or a cotton sarong in black for a more relaxed vibe.

Prefer a beach dress to a sarong? Then the Cotton Overshirt in black or white would be a fabulous addition as well as the black mesh Belle Sleeve beach dress for those who prefer a fuller style.

And don't forget about beach pants! These Black Sun Safe Beach Pants would make a brilliant outfit option, especially if the wind is up and you're after a bit more protection.

And if you find it's not for you, that's okay too. We offer FREE Returns where we pick up the postage back from you to us. We've been doing that since the beginning, 12 years ago. Not bad huh? The details on how that works are here.
