These NEW Leopard print Zip Up one pieces made from recycled plastic bottles, will have you purrrring this summer.

Anita McLachlan - 29th September 2021

Feel good. Look good. Do good. These NEW Leopard print Zip Up one pieces made from recycled plastic bottles, will have you purrrring this summer.

So many of you tell me that you love a Zip Up because:

  • they hold all of you in place really nicely - great if you're active or if you just want to feel secure in your bathers
  • they're easier to get in and out of - with gammy shoulders, post surgery, scaring etc
  • they've got greater coverage over those hard to reach areas for sunscreen re-applications

and because of the compliments you get! Once you've worn a Zip Up, you might find yourself coming back for another in a different print and colour.

Let's take a look at these new beauties, in one of our most popular prints (or neutral), Leopard. From no sleeves to long sleeves...

The Sleeveless Zip Up One Piece:
THE easiest to get in and out of is this zip up cossie. Leave the clip done up at the back (it has a cut out keyhole back) and get in from the front. It also has generous openings for bust prostheses if you've had a mastectomy. The high neckline is great for sensitive skin and scaring coverage too.

Shape Tip: The black band across the waist will help to visually create one for you if you have a straight through column/rectangle shape and if you have a waist, it will accentuate it even more. If you are longer in the torso then you'll need to go up a size for the extra length as there's no tummy ruching in this style.

Sizes 10-22 | B-E cup with built in elastic shelf bra under each bust and molded cups for a smooth outline. Take a closer look here.

The Zip Up - with a little frilled sleeve:
Is the most popular zip up style. Full back coverage and will make you feel well supported and contained.

Shape Tip: The side panels make this a very flattering fit on any shape. Why? Because they bring you in a bit and create a lovely outline. The centre ruched panel is great for tummy camouflage too. The little flutter sleeve will add a bit of width to narrower shoulders so if you're narrower up top than across the hips, it will help to 'balance' out your shape and keeps the attention up.

Sizes 10-22 | B-E cup with built in elastic shelf bra under each bust and molded cups for a smooth outline. Take a closer look here.

The Zip Up - with a long sleeve:
Now you can get complete arm, back and front body coverage with this stunning one piece. It is a little harder to get on and off when wet so if you do have a 'gammy shoulder' then best not to go this one. Do the sleeveless and if you want full sun coverage, wear a rashie over.

Shape Tip: The black side panels and that black waist band will help to visually bring you in on the sides and help to create a visual waist or to accentuate it if you've got one.

Sizes 10-22 | B-E cup with built in elastic shelf bra under each bust and molded cups for a smooth outline. Shop it here.
