STRING BRALETTE

Size & fit guide

The String Bralette is the ultimate classic style. Our String Bralette stands out due to the attention to detail, flattering proportions and premium fabric and fit. 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 over-the-shoulders and around your ribcage. The combination of concealed seams and silky soft fabric means our String Bralette feels like no other. The thin flat straps provide structure and support to your bust, whilst also allowing for minimal tan lines. Our fabrics are treated with colour fastness, anti-yellowing and UV protection to prolong and enhance their lifecycle. Our fabric moulds 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: 

The flexibility of our String Bralette makes it a popular style for almost all body shapes and sizes. 

The straps roll when taking it on and off, which is typical for this style across all brands, but this doesn’t stop it from being a much loved and low-fuss style. 

 

TRYING IT ON: 

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

Adjust the over-the-shoulder and band straps to find a fit that suits you best. Ruche or stretch out the cups to find your preferred coverage and best fit. This will vary for every body type and proportion.

After you’ve worn it wet for the first few times, you may need to tighten the straps.

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.
