How to measure
Do You Know How To Properly Measure Yourself?
Let Us Teach You!
Torso
Starting from the center of the shoulder, run a tape measure diagonally across your body, between your legs and back up the other side to the starting point.
overbust
Measure over the fullest part of your bust in your best-fitting bra.
underbust
Place tape measure around your rib cage and let it rest just under your bust for the most accurate measurement.
waist
Bend at your waist to one side. The point where your body creases is your natural waist. Stand up and wrap tape measure around the small of your waist.
hips
Stand with your legs together and measure over the widest portion of your hips; this typically includes the fullest part of your rear.
note: Be sure to keep tape measure level when measuring around your body.

Ashley Graham:
Swimsuits For All brand ambassador Ashley Graham is a renowned plus-size supermodel, body-positive activist, author and swimwear designer. Her seasonal, exclusive swim collection is available only at Swimsuits For All, or view our signature Ashley Graham Essentials swimsuit line which is available year-round for must-have bathing suits!
Athletic Shape:
An athletic shape body type is characterized as having a sporty, rectangular, less curvy frame in which the hips tend to have a similar width as the shoulders. Look for draped, flyaway and handkerchief tops and plunging or sweetheart necklines, which maximize a small bust and create cleavage. Also try feminine touches such as ruffles and shirring, which draw attention to these details and create curves.

Bandeau:
Shoulder-baring bandeau swimsuit styles highlight the neckline and strapless designs minimize tan lines. Select styles include removable straps for added support and dual styling options.
(See also; Strapless)
Banded Short:
A full-coverage, relaxed-fit banded short is designed with a built-in swim brief and a comfortable stay-put wide elastic waistband for added tummy control. The legs are not tight like our bike short, or as relaxed as our loose short.
Bike Short:
Form-fitted, stretchy bike short swim bottoms offer maximum thigh coverage for a sleek look and comfy fit. They are designed to transition from gym to swim and have a comfortable gusset.
Bikini:
Two-piece bikini swimsuit sets include a swim top and bottom which typically exposes the midsection; can have underwire or wire-free bra cups and are available in low, mid and high waist rises. All our bikini two-piece sets allow you to select the perfect-fit size top and bottom to suit your unique sizes!
Bikini Separates:
Our exclusive bikini separates give you endless mix and match individual bikini swim top and bottom styles for creating the perfect-fit bikini that dreams are made of.
Blouson:
Our popular relaxed-fit blouson tankini tops are uniquely designed with a banded bottom and easy no-cling shape through the body, perfect for flattering a thicker waistline. They’re constructed with a comfy built-in encircled shelf bra and most have wide straps which don’t slip. We offer many blouson swim tops; some with side-ties, bandeau necklines or loop straps.
Board Short:
A board short is designed to be worn over any swimsuit bottom as a cover up, much like men’s boardshorts. Ours feature either a functional Velcro fly with drawstring closure or a comfortable drawstring waistband. They do not have built-in briefs inside.
Boy Short:
Seamless stretch, form-fitted boy short style swim bottom offering full rear coverage that hits at upper thigh. The legs are designed to fit tight around the thighs.
Bra-Sized:
Supportive underwire bra sized swimwear offers the same great fit as a bra, yet in swimsuits designed especially for DD+ sizes. Available in a range of bra cup sizes from C/D cups up to G/H cup size swimsuits. Fits like your favorite bra, so it’s best to choose your size by matching your bra band size and cup size to our easy-to-follow Size Guide.
(See also; Underwire)
Brief:
Our comfortable swim brief bottoms offer full coverage and stays put for all-day confidence.
C
Capri:
Form-fitted, mid-calf length capri swim bottom resembles a cropped legging but designed for swimming or athleisure. Most are offered in either our exclusive chlorine resistant fabric or quick-drying Taslon nylon.
Care Instructions:
The care instructions for all our swimsuits; Always hand wash with mild soap. Roll suit in towel and squeeze out excess water. Dry flat: avoid laundering in washing machines and dryers. Chemicals in whirlpools, spas and public pools may cause your suit to deteriorate faster. Suntan lotions, salt, prolonged sunlight, chlorine and perspiration may cause discoloration and fabric breakdown. Chlorine is extremely harsh and will ruin the elasticity of Spandex stretch, as well as cause white swimsuits to turn yellow. For tie-dye cover ups, we recommend hand-washing separately in cold water to prevent color bleeding.
Cargo Short:
Non-stretch, woven cargo short styles are chlorine resistant with a full built-in brief, front pockets and Velcro fly front closure; hits at upper thigh. Constructed of 100% polyester, these styles dry quickly and retain their shape.
Chlorine Resistant:
Our long-lasting chlorine resistant swimwear fabrics are designed to prevent the harsh effects that chlorine can have on your swimsuits, while preserving their bright color with colorfast benefits, and retaining the shape and elasticity of your swimsuit with Xtra Life Lycra spandex. We offer two signature fabrics; Lycra Xtra Life and Poly/Spandex. This collection used to have the name, Aquabelle. The products are the same but we’ve dropped the Aquabelle brand name. Many of our chlorine resistant separates are meant to go from gym to swim, meaning they transition from the pool, to the gym or out and about town. Chlorine will quickly degrade and lose its elasticity if not hand-washed directly following exposure to chlorine chemicals in a pool or hot tub. It’s vital to hand-wash your swimsuits with a mild detergent such as Woolite, and to never launder them in a washing machine or dryer for the longest wear possible.
(See also; Lycra Xtra Life, Poly/Spandex and Colorfast)
Colorfast:
If you’re looking for chlorine resistant swimwear which will resist fading, stay brightly colored and won’t bag or stretch out, you need our colorfast Poly/Spandex with polyester as the key fabric component.
(See also; Chlorine Resistant and Poly/Spandex).
Convertible:
A swimsuit or cover up which is convertible merely means that you may wear and style this garment several different ways. Either the straps convert from wearing it multiple ways, or a convertible dress may be worn multi-ways as a skirt or a dress. Our convertible brief with foldover waistband may be converted to wear it folded for less coverage or unfolded for maximum waist coverage.
Cover Up:
A cover up is a beach garment (tunic, maxi dress, pant, swim tee, romper and more) typically worn over a swimsuit; some styles will take you from beach to the street, too!
Crochet:
Crochet handicraft in which materials are made up into a patterned fabric by looping them with a hooked needle; generally used as a decorative trim on our swimsuits or cover ups.
Crossback:
Our X-back or crossback swimsuits are designed with no-slip crisscrossed straps for a full range of motion while swimming. Generally our X-Back straps are non-adjustable but are stretchy, so you can easily pull them on over your head.
(See also; X-Back and Racerback)
Cup Sized:
We offer a collection of underwire cup sized swimsuits for big busts that provide a highly supportive, bra-like fit and are available in bra cup sizes ranging from C/D up to G/H cups. To find your correct size, match your underbust and cup-size measurements on our size chart and select the swimsuit size closest to YOUR measurements.
(See also; Underwire and Bra Sized)
D
Dolman Sleeve:
A dolman sleeve is wide and loose-fitting on the shoulder and top of the arm, then gently narrows toward the elbow or wrist for an easy, comfortable fit. Popular sleeve design in many of our beach cover ups.
Draped:
Draped fabric loosely fits across the body for a relaxed, not form-fitted look. Our sarong front swimsuits feature a soft draped front panel of fabric, which provides a flattering front and upper thigh coverage.
(See also; Sarong Front)
Dress:
A dress cover up is a one piece garment that varies in length and usually consists of a bodice and skirt, with a relaxed fit. Our cover up dresses easily transition from beach to boardwalk, and the fabrics are opaque so you may wear them without a bathing suit underneath them.
(See also; Swimdress)
E
Empire Waist:
An empire waist style or flared fit features a fitted bodice which begins just below your bust, at your underbust, and gently flares downward creating a loose, flattering, high-waisted, A-shaped silhouette. It’s a perfect fit for disguising a thick waist or wide hip. Also a comfortable style suitable as a maternity swimsuit!
(See also; Flared and Flowy)
Encircled Shelf Bra:
Our ultra-comfortable, encircled shelf bra is a built-in, soft, wire-free bra which fully encircles the underbust and is trimmed with a soft extra-plush elastic band which won’t slip. It offers moderate non-wire bust support and total modesty.
(See also; Shelf Bra, Molded Cup Bra and Wire-Free)
F
Flared:
A flared fit or empire waist style features a fitted bodice which begins just below your bust, at your underbust, and gently flares downward creating a loose, no-cling, high-waisted, A-shaped silhouette. Perfect fit for disguising a thick waist or wide hip. Also a comfortable style suitable as a maternity swimsuit!
(See also; Empire Waist and Flowy)
Flowy:
Our relaxed-fit flowy top silhouette drapes comfortably over the midsection, perfect for camouflaging a thick waist or torso. Similar to our flared and empire waist swim top silhouettes, it creates a flattering, loose-fitting, unclingy, shape. Also a comfortable style suitable as a maternity swimsuit!
(See also; Empire Waist and Flared)
Flyaway:
A flyaway swim top silhouette features a breezy, open-front design created with softly draped layers of unlined fabric which originate at your underbust. Most flyaway tops are designed with laser-cut, unhemmed edges which create an extra-flowy shape. Our faux flyaway tops offer a similar look, but are lined beneath the flyaway panels.
(See also; Laser Cut)
Foil:
Metallic foil appliques create long-lasting shine and are used to decorate some of our swimsuits and cover ups.
Foldover Brief:
Our convertible foldover brief features a waistband which folds over for double the tummy control without containing Power Mesh lining. It’s convertible in that you can wear it folded or unfolded for maximum waist coverage.
Fringe:
An ornamental border of threads left loose at the edge, called fringe, add a decorative and feminine charm to our swimsuits and cover ups.
Front Lined:
Swimsuits which are front lined are designed with an extra panel of our signature Power Mesh lining constructed over the tummy, for modesty and additional slimming tummy control. Generally, our front-lined swimwear is unlined in the back of the suit. Look for our product details which speak to our lining features or fully-lined suits.
(See also; Fully Lined, Power Mesh and Tummy Control)
Full Coverage Brief:
Our signature full coverage brief swim bottom offers full front and rear back coverage and sits at the natural waist. We sell our swim bottom separates individually or as sets with tankini and bikini tops.
(See also; Modest)
Fully Lined:
An extra layer of lining is added to the front and back panels of our fully lined swimsuits, providing the ultimate level of modesty and durability. Some are designed with our signature front Power Mesh tummy control panel.
(See also; Front Lined, Power Mesh and Tummy Control)
G
GabiFresh By Gabi Gregg:
GabiFresh is our exclusive plus size swimwear collection designed by renowned fashion blogger, Gabi Gregg; she collaborates with our design team to create an edgy swimwear line, twice a year, created expressly for women with curves and fierce attitudes! Her swimsuits and cover ups are generally offered in sizes 10-26 with a focus on support and cup sizes up to a G/H cup.
Grommet:
Metal rings inserted into our swimsuit material, used for decorative purposes.
Gusset:
A gusset is an extra piece of fabric sewn into the crotch area of most of our swim bottoms, for comfort and an extra layer of modesty to prevent the fabric from rubbing against your skin.
H
H-Back:
A sporty H-back swimsuit design features straps in the back of the suit, which is shaped like the letter H, and offers superior bust support.
Halter:
A halter swimsuit or swim top is fastened or tied behind the neck, exposing an open back. A triangle bikini top is also designed as a halter style. Halters emphasize the bust and offer customized support by tightening the straps.
(See also; Triangle)
Handkerchief Hemline:
A handkerchief hemline on some of our swimsuits and cover ups is formed by panels of fabric which fall into points, resembling the corners of a handkerchief. Generally our handkerchief swim tops are unlined and unhemmed, cut using high-tech laser cutting machines for non-fray edges.
(See also; Laser Cut)
Heart Shape:
A heart shape body type is characterized as being narrower along the hips and thighs yet fuller through the shoulders and bust. The shape mimics an inverted triangle, fuller at the top and skinny at the bottom. To flatter broad shoulders, look for X-back, crossback, racerback styles, high necklines and one pieces which draw attention to your back and neckline as a flattering diversion. To minimize a large bust, shop exclusively for underwire support rather than wire-free swimsuits.
(See also; Apple, Athletic, Hourglass and Pear)
High Low Hemline:
A high low hemline is designed as a fashion element on our cover ups, characterized by the fact that the hemline is higher in the front than in the back.
High Neck:
This neckline style, a high neck, offers the most coverage on the bust and generally is designed with higher armholes too. It’s a popular silhouette when you’re seeking full coverage and an overall modest non-revealing fit.
(See also; Full Coverage Brief and Modest)
High Waist:
Our high waist brief swim bottoms offer the highest rise, which conceals most of the tummy and rests slightly above the natural waist. High waisted swimsuits are typically very slimming and evoke a retro look. Our high-waisted swim bottom is sold individually or paired as a set with various tankini and bikini tops.
(See also; Low Waist Bottom and Mid Waist Bottom)
Hip Minimizer:
We refer to some of our hip flattering swimwear and cover ups as a hip minimizer in that they flatter and minimize the appearance of one’s hips as a swimwear solution. They are not constructed with any special hip-smoothing interior fabrics, but are excellent choices to consider when looking to hide hips in a swimsuit. Longer silhouettes provide extra hip coverage, as skirts, swim shorts and swimdresses are especially slimming.
Hourglass Shape:
An hourglass shape is the curviest body type, characterized as having broader shoulders, a smaller waist and fuller rear and thighs.
(See also; Apple, Athletic, Heart and Pear)
How to Measure:
We offer very simple how to measure fit guidelines and instructions on how to take your underbust, overbust, cup size, waist, hip and torso measurements in an effort to match your measurements against our size chart to select the perfect fit swimsuit or cover up for your body. We urge you not to choose your regular size in other brands or clothing, or select a size based on others’ opinions. It’s best to follow our size guidelines to order the correct size for your shape!

International Size Chart or Size Guide:
To find your perfect fitting swimsuit based on European or UK / Australian size equivalents, we recommend you view our International Size Guide. Use our size chart to match YOUR underbust, cup-size, waist and hip measurement equivalents to OUR sizes, which closely match your shape. Every woman's body is different, so it’s important to consult OUR size guidelines to find the best fit for your body. We urge you not to blindly choose your regular size in other brands or clothing, or select a size based on others’ opinions. Our measurement equivalents are given in centimeters.
(See also; How To Measure and Size Guide)
K
Keyhole:
A round or oval cut-out keyhole design detail to emphasize certain areas of the body or allow for range of movement. Keyholes details are strategically placed to add a flirty element to our swimsuits and cover ups.
L
Laser Cut:
A laser cut hemline edge is a design detail used in place of a tradition hemline, which gives the fabric greater movement and a flowy fit. A high-powered laser physically cuts the fabric with a smooth, non-fray hemline edge. The majority of our laser cut styles are unlined and exceptionally loose and flowy.
(See also; Handkerchief Hemline)
Longitude:
The designer brand Longitude is a swimwear line not manufactured by Swimsuits For All, featuring one piece long torso swimsuits and swimdresses created specifically for tall women that won’t ride up and have built-in front Power Mesh lining.
(See also; Long Torso)
Long Torso:
Although the majority of our one pieces and swimdresses are not specifically designed for a long torso, all our swimsuits feature 4-way stretch and torso measurement equivalents very similar to Longitude-brand swimsuits.
(See also; Longitude)
Loose Short:
Our loose short is our swim short with a built-in, full coverage, polyester/mesh brief and comfortable, encircled-covered, elastic waistband. It offers a relaxed fit and no-cling shape through the hips and thighs.
Low Waist Bottom:
Our low waist swimsuit brief bottom has our lowest rise; reveals most of the midriff and visually lengthens the torso. Rests below the navel. Our low-rise swim bottom separates are sold individually or as sets with tankini and bikini tops.
(See also; High Waist Bottom and Mid Waist Bottom)
LYCRA® XTRA LIFE Spandex:
Chlorine Resistant LYCRA® XTRA LIFE Spandex fabric retains its shape and fit 5-10 times longer than other fabrics. Spandex will quickly degrade and lose its elasticity if not hand-washed directly following exposure to chlorine. It’s vital to hand-wash your swimsuits with a mild detergent such as Woolite, and to never launder them in a washing machine or dryer for the longest wear and life possible.
(See also; Chlorine Resistant, Colorfast, Poly/Spandex, Spandex and Taslon)
M
Macrame:
Macrame is an art of knotting fabric to produce a decorative pattern as a design focal point on our swimsuits.
Mastectomy Swimwear:
We no longer offer mastectomy swimwear and will not be restocking.
Maternity:
We do not expressly design maternity swimsuits, however we can recommend a few tankini tops as appropriate and wireless swimwear options for pregnancy swimsuits; our flared, flowy, handkerchief halter top styles and 2 piece Swimdresses all will provide coverage and the most comfortable fit for a pregnant woman.
(See also; Empire Waist, Flared and Flowy)
Maxi Dress:
A maxi dress is our casual floor or ankle-length cover up dress crafted in a non-sheer fabric that will transition from the beach to street elegantly. Maxi dresses are best for women 5’4” and up, due to their longer length.
Modest:
Our exclusive, quality-made modest swimwear is designed to offer full coverage and comfortable support in stylish silhouettes. Look for modest bathing suits when you want less revealing necklines coupled with full rear coverage! Modest necklines include high necks, tanks, scoops and square necks.
(See also; Full Coverage Brief and High Neck)
Molded Cup Bra:
The majority of our swimsuits and swim tops are designed with a molded cup bra, which are built-in seamless foam cups that are permanently heat-molded into the natural shape of breasts. The provide modesty, prevent nipple visibility and are not overly padded. We design swimwear with and without underwire and molded cups.
(See also; Encircled Shelf Bra, Shelf Bra, Underwire and Wire-Free)
Monokini:
A monokini is a one piece swimsuit that looks like a bikini top and bottom, but is joined together with a minimal amount of fabric. The name implies a mono, singular or one piece bikini.
(See also; One Piece)
N
Natural Waist:
Your natural waist is located between the ribcage and hips. When you bend at your waist to one side, the point where your body creases is your natural waist. This is where it’s best to measure yourself when determining your waist size measurement for our Size Guide. See our How to Measure information above.
Nylon:
Nylon swimsuit fabric is a synthetic fiber that is highly durable and water resistant. The majority of our swimwear is designed with Nylon mixed with Spandex, which is the fiber that provides the stretch. Nylon and Spandex will quickly degrade and lose their elasticity if not hand-washed after exposure to chlorine. It’s vital to hand-wash your swimsuits with a mild detergent such as Woolite, and to never launder them in a washing machine or dryer for long wear.
(See also; Lycra Xtra Life, Poly/Spandex, Spandex and Taslon)
O
One Piece:
A fitted one piece swimsuit fully covers your torso. A large number of our one piece bathing suits are designed with a built-in Power Mesh tummy control lining panel in the front to comfortably smooth your shape. Finding an ideal fit in a one piece swimsuit is the most challenging of all swimsuit styles, because your bust, waist, hip and torso measurements must all align to our Size Guide closely in order to pinpoint the perfect fit.
Overbust Measurement:
It’s important to take your overbust measurement in order to match your size equivalent to our Size Guide to confirm that you’re ordering the best-fitting size for your body. You simply measure the fullest part of your bust, with a level tape measure, in your best fitting bra. See our How to Measure information above.
P
Pear Shape:
A pear shape is the body type most often categorized as being fullest through the hips and thighs, while narrower through the waistline and shoulders. To distract away from fuller hips, look for sarong front swimsuits, swimdressess, skirtini and shortini sets, which glide over the hips.
(See also; Apple, Athletic, Heart and Hourglass)
Plunge:
A plunge, low-cut, deep V neckline enhances one’s décolletage and puts focus on your cleavage. Swimsuits and cover ups with plunging necklines flatter your bust and generally bring attention upward to your face.
Plus Size:
All of our exclusive swimwear and cover ups are designed with the plus size swimsuit customer top-of-mind! Our swimsuits are crafted for full-figured, curvy women who want value-priced, quality bathing suits designed to fit perfectly. We now offer a collection of extended size swimsuits for women sized 28+, in a range from size 14 to 40!
Poly/Spandex:
If you’re looking for chlorine resistant swimwear which will resist fading, stay brightly colored and won’t bag or stretch out, you need our Poly/Spandex with polyester as the key fabric component. Polyester replaces Nylon in these swimsuits and this keeps our bathing suits stretchy and colorfast! It’s critical to always hand-wash your swimsuits, and to never launder them in a washing machine or dryer for the longest wear possible.
Power Mesh:
Our signature built-in Power Mesh lining is infused into the majority of our one piece swimwear and offers an extra layer of lining in the front of our slimming swimsuits to comfortably firm, shape and control your tummy.

Princess Seam:
We provide a feminine, flared silhouette to some of our swimsuits by designing them with a princess seam, which creates a tailored, slightly fitted shape through the front of a swimsuit.
R
Racerback:
A racerback swimsuit features a Y-shaped design directly behind the shoulder blades, and emphasizes your arms and shoulders, while also offering exceptional bust support and a full range of motion.
(See also; X-Back or Crossback)
Rash Guard:
We design our rash guard to look stylish and functional, not a plain, boring swim tee by any means! They are unlined swim tops, intended to wear over your swimsuit and do not feature any built-in bra support.

Rayon:
Rayon, or modal, is not a synthetic fiber. It’s made from wood pulp, a naturally-occurring, cellulose-based, raw material, which is very smooth, soft and breathable. It resists wrinkles and shrinking, and isn't likely to pull or fade. Many of our cover ups are designed in rayon or modal fabrics.
Relaxed Fit:
The majority of our swimsuits evoke a relaxed fit. They fit loosely over the body and offer a comfortable, no-cling feel. They are easy fitting and not tight.
Removable Cups:
Our removable cup foam pads are inserted into small slits on the side of the bust area in our swimsuits and are intended to provide modesty and a natural shape, not padding to your bust size. They can also be easily taken out. If you receive dented foam cups, you can steam them using a steamer on a low heat/steam setting. Gently push dents/wrinkled parts outwards, or use the back of a wooden spoon, so you don't burn your fingers. Cups will become wet while you steam thoroughly and push all wrinkles flat. Let dry/cool completely before wearing.
Ribbed:
Bathing suits which are ribbed are designed with a combination of flat and raised textured, stripe-like lines (or ribs) in either a horizontal or vertical orientation, much like corduroy.
Ruched:
Some swimsuits are ruched, which means they’re shirred or decorated with gathered pieces of fabric in a repeating wave-like pattern which is meant to create a flattering appearance. Strategic ruching details are intended to camouflage trouble spots.
S
S-Hook:
A S-Hook closure is constructed in either metal or plastic and forms the shape of an “S”. It’s used to fasten the back of a swimsuit and most often fits into a swim bra band strap with multiple, adjustable slots for a secure fit.
Sarong Front:
Our sarong front swimsuits are one piece bathing suits with a flattering, draped front panel of fabric in the front, which is designed to swoop lower in the center front of the suit to camouflage a woman’s inner thigh area. This drape is slightly asymmetrical and higher on one side, with shirring details at the waist. The back looks like a traditional one piece with a brief, non-skirted bottom.
(See also; Draped)
Scoopneck:
A U-shaped neckline is referred to as a scoopneck. It highlights the neck and collarbone area.
Self-Tie Strap:
Self-tie straps simply mean that the shoestring-type ties can be adjusted for a custom fit.
Separates:
Swim separates are a collection of swim tops and swim bottoms that can be combined together to create a perfect two-piece look. Swimwear separates are sold individually, not as a set. You may shop our tankini tops separately, our mix and match bikini separates or swim bottoms individually.
Shelf Bra:
Our built-in, fully encircled, shelf bra with soft wire-free molded cups offers moderate bust support. This shelf bra with ultra-plush elastic band comfortably surrounds your body, front, sides and back.
(See also; Encircled Shelf Bra, Molded Cup Bra and Wire-Free)
Shirred:
Rows of gathered fabric are shirred and added to a swimsuit or cover up as a decorative design feature. Shirring works figure-flattering magic by creating a no-cling appearance and hides bulges.
Shortini:
We refer to a two-piece swimsuit which pairs a separate swim top with swim shorts as a shortini set. Shortini sets provide full rear and extra thigh coverage, not offered with a traditional tankini set with a swim brief. We have multiple swim bottom short silhouettes such as boy and banded waist shorts, cargo shorts or loose shorts, nylon shorts and numerous lengths of bike shorts.
Shorts:
All our swimsuit shorts are designed for swimming, or will transition nicely from gym to swim. We offer numerous swim bottom short silhouettes including boy shorts, cargo shorts, loose shorts, nylon shorts, banded waist shorts and varied lengths of bike shorts, sold individually as separates or paired with swim tops as two-piece sets.
Side Bra Boning:
Many of our wire-free swimsuits are constructed with built-in side bra boning, which are two vertical, rigid, firm support strips that support each side cup seam from collapsing. This is often found in our non-underwire, soft cup swimsuits.
Side Tie:
Our side tie pull ties provide adjustable side coverage on convertible bottoms and serve as a fashion detail on our best-selling blouson swim top silhouettes.
Size Guide or Size Chart:
To get the perfect fit, we strongly advise that you always view our Size Guide (which is linked on every product page throughout our site) to choose the size that most closely matches YOUR underbust, cup-size, waist and hip measurements. Every woman's body is different, so it’s important to consult OUR size guidelines to find the best fit for your body. We urge you not to blindly choose your regular size in other brands or clothing, or select a size based on others’ opinions. Our measurement equivalents are given in U.S. standard inches.

Skirts:
Swim bottom skirts feature built-in or attached full coverage briefs and provide rear, hip and upper thigh coverage. Some are full, A-lined while others are a bit narrower through the hips with a side slit. Skorts are also considered a skirt.
Skirtini:
A skirtini is defined as a two-piece swimsuit set which includes a swim top with a separate skirted swim bottom. Skirtinis offer full rear, hip and upper to mid-thigh coverage. Skirt silhouettes can vary from bottoms like sarong skirts, A-line and side-slit skirts.
Skort:
A swim skort is a bottom silhouette with a skirted front and boy short style look in back; hits upper thigh with front side-slit opening.
Smocked:
An embroidery technique used to gather fabric into tight pleats, allowing the material to stretch, is commonly known as a smocked detail on our swimsuits and cover ups.
Strapless:
A garment without shoulder straps or other visible means of support, highlighting the neckline, shoulders and arms is considered to be a strapless swimsuit style. Also referred to as a bandeau swimsuit.

String Brief Bikini:
Sexy bikini swimsuit sets and string brief bikini separate bottoms which feature a daring high-cut leg and functioning self-ties are adjustable for the perfect fit.
Surplice:
Fabric that is crossed diagonally in the front or back to create a V-shape is known to create a surplice effect.
Sweetheart Neckline:
A heart-shaped neckline that emphasizes the bust and enhances one’s cleavage is referred to as a sweetheart neck swimsuit.
Swimdress:
A flirty, easy swimdress silhouette can either come as a one piece swimsuit with skirted bottom and built-in 1-piece suit connected underneath, or be sold as a two-piece swimdress set which includes a skirted swimdress and separate, matching swim brief bottom. Swimdresses are the perfect choice for providing modesty coupled with femininity.

Swim Tee:
We design our sporty swim tee to function and look stylish! Our unlined swim top or swim shirt is intended to wear over your swimsuit for full upper body coverage, both in and out of the water as a protective sun protection layer. They do not feature any built-in bra support. Some rashguards or swim tees are a Creora blend fabric which provides UPF 50 sun protection from harmful UV rays.
T
Tankini:
A two-piece swimsuit that has the look of a one piece is called a tankini. A tankini set is comprised of a separate swim top and a separate swim bottom. A tankini top provides more coverage through your torso than a bikini top. Our tankini category includes all two-piece sets; tankinis, shortinis and skirtinis.
Tank:
A style of swimsuit with non-adjustable, wide straps offering full bust support is called a tank. We offer tank one piece swimwear and our classic tank swim tops, which are constructed with wire-free, comfortable, built-in, fully encircled shelf bras with soft molded cups.
Taslon:
Our Taslon nylon fabric feels like cotton, is resistant to penetration by water yet breathable and comfortable to wear. It resists mildew, dries much quicker than cotton and retains its shape. We offer many Taslon® nylon swim bottoms.
Tie-Dye:
Cover ups designed in a tie-dye fabric means each garment is uniquely colored. Each style's fabric is unique and the color/print of fabric may vary slightly from the style we photographed. We strongly recommend you hand-wash separately in cold water to prevent tie-dye colors from bleeding.
Tie Front:
We often add a tie front decorative design touch to our swimsuits to bring a hint of femininity to our bathing suits and cover ups. The majority of time they do function and are adjustable.
Tiered:
Overlapping layers of horizontally flounced fabric, designed to resemble stacked ruffles, creating a tiered effect. Tiered swimsuits are extremely flattering and very feminine.
Triangle Top:
Our sexiest bikini tops with soft, wire-free cups in the shape of a triangle are referred to as triangle swimsuits or triangle bikinis. Thin shoestring-type straps secure around the neck at the back and generally at the bottom of the cup for adjustable sizing. Triangle bikini tops are synonymous with halter tops.

Tummy Control:
Our signature tummy control designs are constructed with an extra layer of comfortable Power Mesh lining in the front panel of our slimming swimsuits, which shape and control the midsection providing a smooth appearance.
(see also; Power Mesh)
Tunics:
Unlined cover ups, typically in a semi-sheer fabric, which resemble dresses or long shirts are called tunics. They generally hit above the knee and are intended to wear over a swimsuit, not as street-wear.
Twist Front:
Ruching and twist front design details are typically found on our swimsuits with sweetheart necklines, highlighting the bust. A twist-front neckline flatters the bust.
Two Piece Swimdress or 2 Piece Swimdress:
Our two-piece swimdress styles are sold as 2 piece swimdress sets. The set includes a separate swimdress topper and a separate swim brief. Unlike our traditional swimdresses, our two piece swimdress is not constructed with a built-in one piece swimsuit underneath. You must select both your swimdress size and your swim bottom size in order to purchase this set.

U
Underwire:
Semi-circular plastic or metal wire support, or underwire, is stitched under each bra cup inside our underwire swimsuits. These covered, comfortable wires are built-in to our swimwear and provide extra bust support, lift and a natural shape. Many of our new bathing suits are now available in cup or bra-sizes too, similarly sized like your favorite bras, and offer excellent support!
(See also; Cup Sized and Bra Sized)
Underbust Measurement:
To get the right fit in all our swimsuits, it’s important to take your underbust measurement in order to match your size equivalent on our Size Guide. You measure directly under your breasts and completely around your back/rib cage with a level tape measure. A precise underbust swimsuit measurement equates to one’s bra band size measurement. Confirming your underbust size will help you to order the best-fitting Swimsuits For All size for your body. See our How to Measure information above
V
V-Neck:
A neckline with a V-shaped front is called a V-neck. Our V-necks offer wonderful bust support, however are designed to flatter and expose your chest.
W
Wire-Free:
Soft, molded, wire-free swimsuit bra cups offer bust support and extra comfort without plastic or metal cup wires underneath the breasts. Our non-underwire bathing suits predominantly feature fully encircled shelf bras, or have built-in, soft foam cups sewn into the bodice.
X
X-Back:
Our X-Back or criss-cross swimsuit straps form the shape of an X. Straps designed with crossback straps offer optimal bust support and a full range of motion. Most of our X-back swimsuits are constructed with non-adjustable, wide straps.
Z
Zip:
Easy-fit, sporty zip styles feature functional zipper details, which allow for adjustable bust coverage.
