When to wear

This underwire bralette bikini top is the best option for when you’re spending the day in your swimwear – it doubles perfectly as a t-shirt bra, and even more comfortable with its hidden seams and silky soft fabric.  It’s perfect for sunbaking and your standard Australian surf.  If you’re going out in dumping Aussie surf, you’re best switching to our Scoop Bikini Top.

How it feels

Our underwire bralette is the most flexible and comfortable you will find.  Our wire bends around on itself and does not poke into you.  We believe that uncomfortable, rigid metal wires do not belong on the beach or poolside, so it took us 5 years to launch an underwire bikini style that was to our standards of comfort and fit.

Hidden seams, even at the fastening, mean there’s less friction on the skin, which in turn means it’s so beautifully soft on the skin.  It feels like a second skin, the best bikini to wear from day to night.

How it fits

This is a bikini top that perfectly balances minimal tan lines and bust support.

Our sizing recommendations are for the fabric to just skim your nipple for optimal tan lines

Trying it on

When you try your bikini on the first time, make sure you adjust the over-the-shoulder straps to find the spot that fits best.  There are also 3 adjustment options around the back for the hook.

When it gets wet for the first time, the cups, band and straps will loosen, so keep that in mind – you’ll want it to be tight when new, so that it fits perfectly once worn wet a few times.  After the first 3 wears wet, it will mould to your body and then keep its shape for years.

Who it suits

This bikini top is universal in style and suits most. 

Wear it with

This bikini top goes with all of Ark Swimwear’s Bikini Bottoms – make the best bikini set for yourself by choosing your coverage and style to suit you.  If you love a skimpy cut, try our Brazilian, String Brazilian, Ruched and High Waist Bikini styles.  If you love fuller coverage, try our High Waist Cheeky and High Cut styles, which also cover a C-section for those that want it.

Other Ark Swimwear styles to consider

If you love underwire and want more coverage, try our Balconette Bikini Top. It has more structure at the bust for greater support, and wider straps over the shoulders to take the weight of your bust, for greater comfort.

If you feel you need underwire for the support, but want to try a top without it, our Scoop Bikini Top has a cult following for this reason.  It also gives more coverage, so if a design skimming the nipple isn’t for you, then try the Scoop Bikini Top.

If you love the bralette style, but without the underwire, we have two options for you: our String Bralette Bikini Top which offers less support but better tan lines with less coverage and more adjustability, and our original Bralette Bikini Top, which gives amazing support for a top that has no underwire – there’s a reason this one has a cult following, with tens of thousands sold.

If you have broad shoulders and would like them to look less so, then we recommend a bikini top that sections your chest if your bust allows it – try our Triangle Bikini Top or One Shoulder Bikini Top.  If you are bigger busted, then opt for our Scoop Bikini Top or even our Balconette Bikini Top and create the balance with your choice of bikini bottoms.


Our fabric is the most luxe-to-touch on the market.  It has a silk-like feeling, that we’ve complemented with our hidden seams to give the most amazing feeling on the skin; you’ll be one of those people that can spend all day in your bikini, if you don’t already. Our fabric is composed of the industry standard 70% ?? and 30% something.  But, it’s our fabric treatments and weave that make it the best in the industry – read below if you’re interested in learning more.

Construction Process

The hidden seams can only be created by a highly skilled machinist, with each piece made “inside-out”, and only turned the right way just before completion.  We take our time sewing the pieces together, as the silk-like feeling of our fabric causes the pieces to slide against each other as we feed it through the sewing machine’s pressure foot.

These are a few of the reasons you don’t find seamless swimwear in such small cuts on the market.  Turning them inside-out with such narrow sides and bands takes a lot of care and time.

Fabric Treatments

Our fabrics have several treatments run through them, including softener, colourfastness, UV protection and anti-yellowing (ever noticed your cheap white tees go yellow?).  The lasting of these treatments depends on the fabric’s exposure to non-pH neutral substances.

Caring for your Swimwear

For longevity and to keep all these treatments, we recommend washing with pH neutral detergents (the one you’re most likely to have on hand is dishwashing detergent), ensuring that you give them a thorough rinse.

Chlorine pools aren’t always maintained at a neutral pH level, so if you’re able, wash them as soon as possible, and next best case, rinse thoroughly under the shower to dilute as much chlorine as possible.


Take your swimwear outside!  The fabric and colour look different in direct sunlight, shade and artificial light.  We have chosen each colour while under direct sunlight and matching it up against different skin tones. Swimwear is made to be worn outside, so take it there, put it against your own skin, and see how it looks and feels.
