Swimsuit fit! Curvy Model Try-On - Appalachian Bittersweet

Swimsuit fit! Curvy Model Try-On

I wanted to share some real-fit examples of our one-piece swimsuit, as well as our high waist recycled bikini bottoms paired with the long-line sport top (which is perfect for more support when swimming!). 

Model measurements are 5’5” tall, 158lbs, waist 32”. Curvy hourglass shape with 36DD bust and wide hips. Swimsuits are all size Large, and were ordered based on the measurements posted on our size charts!

 First up: the Forest Shrooms One-Piece Swimsuit

First of all, I normally don’t prefer one-piece suits, as they typically aren’t long enough for my body shape. However, I love this suit fit! It is stretchy, forgiving, and flattering. It is a simple, comfortable one-piece; it is not compressive or with a built in bra, so if you are looking for shape wear this isn’t it. However, the smooth, velvety fabric looks sleek and smoothing, and it was extremely flattering and I felt confident and supported on top as well. Probably my new favorite especially for days I’m feeling bloated and a little heavier, and not quite in the mood to wear a bikini. 

Next in line: the bikini!

I offer both a bikini set and bikini bottoms/longline sport top, which can be used as a sport bra or for swim! I wear the latter, as the bikini top does not offer quite enough coverage for my bust size.

I love these bottoms, as I really prefer a high waist style, and these have a really cute, modern cheeky fit. 

Finally, my other favorite combo: Shortie Shorts and Sport Top!

Our shortie shorts are swim approved, and pair perfectly with a bikini top or sport top. With a high waist fit and great tummy coverage for the days you just don’t want to show it all. I usually wear my bikini bottoms or lightweight quick dry undies underneath. I did choose to get these shorts in size XL for a more relaxed fit, but could also size down to a L if I wanted a tighter fit.
