Do you get confused when picking out swimwear? With the plethora of styles available out there , it is no surprise that finding a one-piece or bikini, that represents and fits you best, might seem tricky. At Mimie Reed, we believe that swimwear should make you look and feel great, in terms of body confidence and comfort. There’s a perfect style for every shape and size – and we are happy to help make that choice easier for you!

The trick to styling a pear-shaped physique lies in visual contrasts. We love contrasting pieces in black and white block colours, and urge you to give them a try too! Why not mix and match black bikini bottoms with a bold, white top such as our Maryline ruched range? Layer on chunky jewellery for that additional touch of glamour.

Athletic bodies look marvellous in a waist-defining swimsuit. Our Grace belted swimsuit is an ideal option, as are briefs that sit on the waist and pair up with a lovely bikini top. Opt for a strapless top or frillystraps to further complement your physique.


Vintage styles are incredibly flattering for the hourglass figure. Embrace your shape with a fitted one-piece that accentuates your assets. Our Vivian ruched swimdress is the ideal choice.

Those of us with a larger chest might want to steer away from strapless one-pieces and a bandeau bikini tops, as they can feel restrictive and less secure. Instead, flaunt those assets in a bikini that is both shapely and supportive – that feature thick straps and underwire. The Eva scalloped balconette bikini top is a great option  - it’s both comfortable and elegant!

The ladies with a skinnier top look fabulous in strapless one-pieces including our Grace belted swimsuit, and our bandeau-style tops. If adding more to your chest area is your aim, choose bikinis tops with ruffles or scalloped edges and add eye-catching accessories for extra volume and style!
