BALCONETTE

Size & fit guide

The Balconette Bikini Top gives structure and framing to your bust. Our Balconette doesn’t have a stiff structure, like most others on the market, making it the most comfortable bikini top you can get. The cups are designed to mould to your bust shape, to ensure there is no gaping around the bust, creating a second-skin feel. We have constructed our seams to be concealed, to ensure that there is no stitching rubbing against your skin. This gives a delicate and unrestrictive feel, especially around your ribcage. We use a flexible underwire that doesn’t dig into you, making you forget you are wearing an underwire. This top gives you all-day comfort unlike any other Balconette Bikini on the market. Our fabrics are treated with colour fastness, anti-yellowing and UV protection to prolong and enhance their lifecycle. Our extremely soft fabric will mould to your body for a second-skin feel.

We do premium, timeless swimwear.

YOU'VE CHOSEN MODEL A

Balconette (Small) and High Waist Cheekys (X-Small)

 

WHO IT SUITS: 

Those looking for that resort look, or a classic statement piece will love this top. 

Our Balconette Bikini top is flattering for any bust size. It is great for those with a small bust that want to look bustier due to coverage, and those with a larger bust who want the support and framing.

This is great if you have a heavier bust as the thicker straps help distribute the weight of your bust, which relieves any strain on your shoulders.

 

TRYING IT ON: 

The coverage you get on the first wear will be its coverage for life. Designed to just skim your nipple for optimal tan lines, as reflected in our campaign imagery.

There are 3 adjustment options around the back. Try the first or second hook on your first wear as the fabric will loosen. The hook may stretch to the side when you wear the top because of the adjustable clasps and hidden seams, which are there for your comfort. 

After you've worn it wet for the first few times, tighten the shoulder straps and band hooks as they may loosen.  

If you have tan lines, picture yourself evenly tanned when trying the bikini on. This will help you feel less exposed and have a more accurate fitting experience.
