The best swimsuits for tall women

And six reasons why tall girls need tall-fit swimwear.

1. Because you deserve to feel like a poolside goddess

“Tall women need tall-fitting swimwear - there’s so much at stake when you’re wearing styles that aren’t quite long enough. And every woman should own at least one tankini. They are SO flattering! This season, we’ve introduced a wow halterneck with true 90s vibes. There’s nothing flimsy about this: it looks great and feels it too. I love the flexibility of the briefs: adjust from full coverage to high leg.” Sylvia, Assistant Buyer

2. Extended shoulder to arm proportions

All of our swimsuits are designed so you can swim, sunbathe and beach-stroll with ease. This pretty paisley one? Made with tummy control, removable cups and built-in shelf bra for extra support. P.S. its ruffles are totally on trend and figure-flattering. Take your look from the shore to sangrias with our matching pom pom kaftan.

3. Longer body length

“It’s all a matter of proportion”, says Lindsey Clarke, Head of Garment Tech. “With swimsuits, extending the shoulder to crotch length is really important so you don’t get the dreaded wedgie. Tankinis require extra length for coverage too. We increase the shoulder to underarm dimensions on all our swimwear so it sits just right and we pay particular attention to the natural bust contouring of the taller silhouette.”

4. Confidence boosting tummy control

“If ever there was a drop-a-size swimsuit, this is it. We called it the Illusion Swimsuit because it’s our little miracle worker. The combination of slimming black, tummy control and flattering side ruching really does create the illusion of a slimmer silhouette.” Sarah, Buyer
