The A to Z of Plus Size Tankinis

Plus Size Tankinis

Curvy Swimwear Australia offers a great selection of plus size tankini tops to suit all body shapes and sizes. A tankini top separate is a great option, easy to get on and off and perfect when you need a quick change. Match back any of our plus size tankini swimwear separates with a swim pant you already have at home or shop our great range of bikini bottoms.

For that bar to beach look a tankini top is perfect with a pair of shorts or skirt. There are so many great designs available now that your plus size tankini top can also be your favourite top to wear to lunch especially if you are on a beach holiday or cruise.

We have outlined our design options below to assist you in finding the perfect tankini style for your body.

Sporty Tankini Tops

For a sporty option, a chlorine resistant tankini is ideal. Whether you opt for a classic colour or bold print, having a separate top and bottom for swimming laps or doing aqua aerobics is a practical and stylish choice. 

Our chlorine resistant 3 tier tankini tops are designed with a longer length so that they come over your belly and down to your hips. This style is great for disguising your mid section if you prefer to cover up. 

A classic tank cut tankini top is a fabulous active choice. If you are moving around in the water and want a top that will stay in place while you get active, go for this simple yet chic chlorine resistant tankini top.

Ruffle Tankini Tops

The best tummy hider by far is our ruffle tankini top. This 3 tiered tankini top is cleverly designed so that the tiers are cut in a downwards triangle slimming the sides of your body. The bottom point of the last frill is long enough that it hides a bigger tummy and the top of the legs. These diagonal cut tiers make the waist appear to be smaller – super clever.

For bust support we have added a comfortable shelf bra with soft, moulded cups. The straps on this tankini top are also adjustable so you can custom fit your level of support and comfort.

Underwire Tankini Tops

If you are after a tankini top with bra support, then our plus size underwire tankini top styles will work for you. This supportive top is available in a DD/E cup fitting with many of our prints and plain colours extending to an F/G cup. 

We also offer a ruched tankini top in many of our fabulous prints and block colours. This design features an underwire with soft, ruched cups and adjustable straps for customised support. The mid section features ruching across the tummy providing a slimming effect and coverage.

Strapless Tankini Tops

If you do not want strap marks, then a plus size strapless tankini swimsuit is the way to go. All our bandeau tankini tops come with straps that are adjustable and removable. 

Our stylish flouncy tankini top is available in our textured black as well as seasonal prints. This style is easy to put on and off either over the head or simply just step into it. You'll love the way it billows over the bust and tummy offering coverage and a flattering shape. 

The swing tankini style falls from under the bust and over the belly making it an ideal option for growing pregnant bodies or anyone who feels self conscious about their mid section.

Halter Tankini Tops

Plus size halter tankini tops are also super popular. These singlet swimwear tops are great for a smaller cup size from a B to a D Cup. The halter neck strap lifts the bust to give a great push up look. 

A plus size halter top tankini also looks great in a peplum style. This swim dress peplum style is a great flowy tankini top and looks great with a boyleg pant or bike pant. For more halter top tankini plus size options, browse our collection online. 

Choosing Your Perfect Tankini

When choosing the best plus size tankini think about your shape. Are you Pear, Apple, Diamond, or Hourglass? Choose your best features and what you want to emphasize and what do you want to hide. 

For a smaller bust go with a flouncy or ruffled tankini top to add volume. For a large bust an underwire style is always the best and there are plus size tankini tops available in Australia who offer underwire cups from a D to a G Cup Fitting. 

If you are an Apple shape you want a swimsuit that minimizes your shoulders and enhances your curves, a style creates great shape is the famous 3 tier tankini top. Commonly as women get older, they tend to carry more weight around their mid-section making them an Apple shape.
