Jump straight into your favourite tankini style or take your time to browse the collection to find your perfect swim style. 

Sporty Tankini Tops

For a sporty option, our new Diamond Geo plus size racer back tankini has been super popular. The bright geometric print in teal, plum and blues is overlapped with a black and white faded palm tree print. 

With so many bright bold colours you can wear this t-back tankini top back with any solid colour pants. The V neckline and built in shelf bra gives you lift and holds you in so you can be active and feel comfortable. Our tankini tops are also all designed with a longer length so that they come over your belly and down to your hips.

This style kicks out ever so slightly to skim the hips. This gentle A line offers a feminine element to an otherwise athletic design and helps to balance out a pear shaped body.

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.

So many women come into our store who say that they would not wear ruffles but when they try it on they are amazed at how figure flattering this style is. If you are looking for a plus size 30 tankini then this 3 tier design is also available in chlorine resistant fabric in our classic navy and white dots print and plain black. This style would have to be the best slimming swimsuit in Australia!

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 flyaway tankini top styles will work for you. The underwire A line tankini top in Black Tropics is a stunning print. The bra cup is designed for a DD/E cup and is black based so easy to team with one of our black bikini pants. The tropical print has hues of pink, purple and green shades. 

Or if you were after a bolder print then our Wild Berries print is superb with its red cherry blossom floral pattern. The Wild Berries style is also available in not only a DD/E cup but a F/G cup tankini top. This is one of our core styles and will be available throughout the year in additional new prints and colours for you to choose from.

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 bohemian inspired paisley Raj print in black and white with its cute detail print at the bottom band is comfortable with its flouncy middle panel.

It is also available in our textured black Classique range. This style is easy to put on and off either over the head or simply just step into it. Wear this plus size tankini top with our great plain black high waisted pants.

Our best selling Twist Front Bandeau is not only available in a one piece but also as a gorgeous strapless tankini top. Of course you can choose to wear it with the straps for extra bust support and security, but it looks sophisticated and elegant as strapless top. Available in our beautiful Hawaii Blue print, you'll feel sensational in these fresh cool tones and tropical inspired designs.

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? Then choose your best features and what you want to emphasize and what do you want to hide. Creative tankini top designs with side panels or middle panels are great at slimming your middle section.

For a smaller bust go with a halter or plus size racerback tankini top. 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.
