The Triangle

A selection of triangle shaped swimwear from FatFace

The triangle is quite possibly the most classic swimwear shape. All our triangle styles have got removable pads and are lined to give greater protection and comfort, so whether you’re swimming or sunbathing you’ll be covered.

The Moulded cup

These styles are great, as all have moulded cups which offer support and a perfect fit. They’re also a super flattering shape to keep you feeling confident at the beach. We’ve got two great styles specifically designed to suit your shape — the Cody and the Carrie. The Cody Bikini Top is perfect for smaller busts, and features thicker under bust ties that are good for all back shapes. The Carrie Bikini Top is better for bigger busts, as the thicker halter straps offer extra support so you’ll stay comfortable all day.

Perfect if you’re looking for a bit more coverage, these tankini tops are great for boosting confidence when you’re hitting the beach. And they’re just as easy to wear as a bikini. There are loads of flattering styles and prints to choose from, all with matching bikini bottoms. But they can be mix and matched too if you fancy something a bit different.
