At Swim by Alba, the idea of empowering women and giving them body confidence irrespective of their shape or size is at the heart of the brand. The most important factor when purchasing swimwear is to ensure the sizing is correct and the style is flattering and supportive for your body type. Below we have added our sizing and styling suggestions to ensure you have the perfect Swim by Alba bikini for your next vacation.

Are the styles true to size?

All of our styles are true to size, they start from size XS to XL.

Which style is more flattering on a smaller bust?

The Nita top is great on A-C cups as it includes padding and boning on the side seam for extra support. The Shan and Chrissy both come with removable padding which gives a little push up effect.

Which style offers support on a larger bust?

For a larger bust we recommend the Shan and Chrissy, which are both triangle shaped tops, and have removable padding for a more generous fit. If you don’t mind showing some under-boob like Kourtney Kardashian, the Helly is on the cheeky side of coverage and super stylish.

What style is great for tan lines?

The Chrissy top and Jordan pant set is a skinny strap style and perfect for minimal tan lines. It has a moveable ruched design for a more micro fit. The Chrissy is a simple triangle bikini with a gorgeous stitch detail and the Jordan is a Brazilian pant. Both with delicate strings which are versatile and can be strapped in many ways.

Which top would you recommend for beach-to-bar?

Definitely the Helly! The wrap around straps make it the perfect bikini top for day and night, pair it with denim shorts and a silky shirt for a chilled yet stylish look.


When will you be releasing new styles?

As we are a small business we can only release a small amount of styles at a time, we spend a lot of time sampling new styles and have so many planned for release later on in the year.

Are there any pants that are offer full coverage?

Keep an eye out for the Zoé pant, dropping later this year, which is a gorgeous high waist pant with a full coverage back – think Marilyn Monroe!
