 Summer is Gypsea’s favourite season of the year; surf, sand and plenty of sunshine to keep us feeling and looking the picture of health!

Lying on golden sand on a mission to develop a glowing tan is one of our favourite summer activities. Although, a few of our Gypsea girls recently confessed that finding the perfect swimsuit is their most challenging yearly shopping quest!

We all know wearing amazing swimwear is the key to rocking that tiny piece of fashion confidently on the beach, but with so many styles and cuts available it can be difficult to work out which shape flatters most. From tri-tops to surf crops, full cuts to Brazilian bottoms, the task of choosing can be both daunting and confusing!

So… to help our Gypsea girls nail the style of swimwear that works best for their body shape, we’ve put together a little style and shapewear guide to make shopping for swimwear that teensy bit easier.


Step 1: Get a better idea of your shape by checking out your body in the mirror and measuring your hips at the widest point, waist at the smallest point and bust at the fullest point.

Step 2: Review your shape / measurements against our handy table below:
