STRING BIKINI

Size & fit guide

The String Bikini is a minimal and classic cut. We have constructed our seams to be concealed. This ensures there is no stitching rubbing against your skin, which is essential for all-day comfort especially around the hips and booty. 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 look and feel.

We do premium, timeless swimwear.

YOU'VE CHOSEN MODEL A

String Bralette (Small) and Strings (X-Small)

 

WHO IT SUITS: 

Great for those who find the Cheeky cut too modest and the Brazilian cut too skimpy.

This is the ultimate no fuss bottoms to throw on as your everyday bikini. Great to wear under clothes as there’s no ties.

 

TRYING IT ON: 

Adjust the thin sides for various levels of coverage and exposure. Play around with how high or low you want them on the hips, noting you can also pull them up or down at the front and back. This will vary your coverage.

Wear the String Bikini high on your waist to elongate your legs – or pull them over your hips for a classic low-rise look. 

When trying it on for the first time, it should feel tight around your hips. After a few wears in the water the side strings will loosen and mould to your body for that second-skin look and feel. 

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