Buying new togs can be tricky, especially when you haven't had a chance to try on a few pairs to find your perfect fit. While our size chart is GREAT
and gives you an idea of how your measurements stack up against our sizing, it's also important to know HOW
our swimwear is designed to fit - where each part of the cut is meant to sit, and how you should feel in the size that is built for your bod.
HIPS Our onesie cuts are designed to sit up a bit higher on the hip than some other brands - the higher on the hip, the longer your legs look; you're welcome. When putting on your onesie for the first time, make sure it's pulled taut around your pelvis and sitting on or above your hip bone. If your suit isn't sitting high enough on your hips, the torso length will feel too short, and the whole fit won't feel right.
CHEST We purposely don't make our suits with shelves or extra padding across the chest so you get the closest, most sleekest fit possible. This means that your onesie will be very snug around your boobies, because we want to keep those girls as secure and as non-slip as possible. Your onesie should sit at least a hand-width down from your collarbone. If it feels too low on your chest, try pulling your whole suit up higher - shuffle it up a bit higher in your hips.
TORSO Your onesie should sit smooth across the length of your torso, with no bunching of material. Bunching means your suit might be too big, or that you need to adjust the strap length to keep the material taut.
The straps do need to be pretty tight to keep everything in place, but because we spend so much time strapped in, ain't nobody got time for bruising after a long set. Make sure your straps don't dig in too deep over your shoulders by tying them up super snug, then checking if you can fit your index finger under the strap.
You should be able to comfortably pull your shoulder straps upwards 2-3 inches - any higher than this may result in your onesie sagging at the front (especially as you dive in) and not sitting how it should on your chest.
BUTT The coverage of your suit depends on how it will sit on your toosh. If you opt for a fuller coverage, you'll get more material and a scoop-look around your cheeks. If you go for our mid-coverage, the cut will go across your cheek. Totally personal preference as to which styles suit your flavour; everyone likes the material to sit differently on their butt - some love the minimal look and pull them riiiight up in there (hey, no judgement!) while others want to keep as much un-exposed as possible, and love the fullness. The design of our fuller coverage onesies gives you more material around your backside, so unless you have a booty to fill it out, go for the medium coverage (it's not cheeky, don't be afraid!) to show off that beautiful bum of yours!
