Speedo may be the answer to your prayers with their new Speedo Sculpture Shapeline range- “swimwear made by real women for real women” and “providing the nearest thing to the made-to-measure swimsuit”.
They have designed three styles to help accentuate your assets and hide the areas you are not happy with. All styles have all over firm control shaping support and back fastening inset bras which come in dual cup sizes available from 30B to 34G. They range from size 10-20, come in 2 colours: classic black and deep pink and 2 body lengths- long (black only) and regular. Each have their own additional zoned control panels plus smart seaming placed in the right areas to create a more balanced shape.
This style is designed for the top heavy figure where the bust is fuller and the chest/shoulders are bigger than the bottom and hips. The cup-sized inner bra gives extra lift, support and definition and a scooped V-neckline flatters the bust. The smart seaming is the vertical seaming down the front which draws the eye down to the lower half of the suit and then to the diagonal seams on the hips.
This style is for the straight or hourglass figure where the hips and chest are equal in width. Here the emphasis is on the waist with additional controlled zone to flatten the tummy and sides. The placing of the diagonal seams draws the attention to the centre.
Tummy and Hip Sculpture (Maria)
This style is designed to complement the pear-shaped figure. The top is a bandeau style with removable straps and with a lightly padded cup-sized bra, whilst additional control zones around the tummy and hips flattens and gives more support. All seaming is on the top half so drawing the eye upwards away from the bottom and hips.
To find the best shape and size it is recommended you have a professional fit assessment at one of the stores as you may find that you are a different size to your regular clothing.
And don’t panic when you struggle to get in to your recommended size – this is normal due to all the firm control support in the fabric. Persevere and you’ll be well rewarded once you’re in a snug but figure flattering suit. I’m told that for all you swimmers it feels great when swimming but for all those who just like to rest and stroll on the beach, you will no longer need your colourful sarongs to hide behind, just walk tall in your new Speedo Sculpture Shapeline.
