Reclaim your waist with this style!

Anita McLachlan - 29th September 2021

As you set your sights on a sunny summer, let's talk about ways in which we can have you feeling fabulous and more summer confident. So when you can get away, you are ready to hit the sand running - no hesitation, making the most of every moment.

Many of you contact us seeking help to find togs that will do the job and suit your shape. The shape we had in our 20's is not what we have now with bigger bellies the #1 change we're working with.

Fit Tips: Understanding how a cossie is made and its features is really important. That's why I turn them inside out every time I do a product review on our regular Friday Lunchtime Lives on Facebook and explain how these features work in with your shape. On the website, we go to great lengths to talk about them in our product descriptions for that reason too.

I firmly believe that if you're armed with understanding how a swimsuit is made, you're empowered to make a better choice for you.

Waist Bands: Cossies with a sewn in waist band are like wearing a belt with your clothes. If you know that wearing a belt helps to bring out the best in your shape, then a cossie with a 'built in belt' will do the same for you.

They will help to create what I like to call a 'visual waist', creating subtle curves for your 'no waist shape'. Equally well, if you have a defined waist, they will accentuate it even more. Look out for my videos explaining how, when you explore each cossie. Click on the triangle symbol in the photo square to play them.

Like the new Long Sleeve Zip Up One Piece in the popular Corsica Print.

Love your leopard? Then there are options here too for you both in Sleeveless and Long Sleeve options.

Prefer a plain? How about Blue? The stunning Luxe range has a Sleeveless Onepiece option too. AND it has the added benefit of being pool tough, made from Chlorine Resistant fabric.

So there you have it. A simple Fit Tip that can make all the difference to how you feel in your cossie. Word of warning Most of these banded styles don't have tummy ruching so if you have a generously full tummy or a longer torso, then you many have to go up a size to get the length. Just sayin'.

Not sure of your size? Then head to The Change Room where there's different levels of help to suit your need. Including a Size Calculator. Yep! It's a great place to start.

Couple that with our 30 day FREE express post returns policy (Aussie orders only) your only enemy is time. Get in early and get summer ready!

We're here to help you do just that. To help you live your best summer yet, with more confidence than ever before.
