Feeling Comfortable and Looking Great – with the Right Swimsuit

Somewhere, it's always summer! Whether you're escaping the cold winter with a trip to the south or seeking relaxation at the spa - for a day by the water, you need the appropriate swimwear. At MADELEINE Mode, you can choose between elegant bikinis, tankinis, and swimsuits. In a fashionable swimsuit, women are stylishly dressed both while sunbathing and swimming, confidently showcasing their figures. The MADELEINE online shop offers advantageous cuts for every body type and exciting designs that you can combine with your beach accessories for a striking look.

The Perfect Cuts for Your Figure

With a high-quality swimsuit, women have the opportunity to cleverly accentuate their strengths and hide minor problem areas. A high leg cut visually elongates your legs and makes you appear taller and slimmer overall. Similarly, a deep neckline elongates the upper body. Thanks to incorporated underwires or cups, even a deeply cut swimsuit provides secure support - regardless of your cup size.

If you want to highlight your waist, choose a centrally placed pattern, ruching, or a side brooch. Patterns and asymmetrical prints camouflage a small belly or wider hips. Many models at MADELEINE Mode are made from extra-sturdy material that has a figure-shaping "shaping effect." If you prefer less fabric, a tankini consisting of a stomach-covering tankini top and bikini bottom is suitable.

Underwire, Cup, or Bustier – Women's Swimwear with Style

Underwire, an incorporated bustier, or a firm cup - women are often unsure about which bikini top and neckline suit them best. Underwires offer secure support, especially for women with a larger bust. An incorporated bustier or soft cups are a lighter option, particularly suitable for active pursuits. Women with a smaller bust often appreciate models with a firm cup, as these give the bust a great shape and can even visually enhance it.

If you prefer your swimsuit without straps, the elegant bandeau style is recommended. This style accentuates your shoulders. With a strapless swimsuit, you're also well advised if you desire a seamless tan on your shoulders and décolleté. Models with a halter-neck solution also prevent unsightly marks at the places where normal top straps usually run. However, for swimming or a snorkeling trip to the coral reef, models with wider straps are a good choice as they provide optimal support with every movement.

The Right Size for Your Women's Swimwear

When purchasing women's swimwear, it's important to note that the elastic material stretches when wet. Therefore, if your size fluctuates, always choose the smaller size. Very tall women are better off with the next higher size as most swimsuits are cut rather short. This advice is especially useful if your one-piece doesn't have adjustable straps or lacks straps altogether.

At MADELEINE, you'll find various cup sizes online ranging from 34A to 48D. Similar to a bra, the underwire should sit directly under the bust, and the middle part should fit snugly. If you have a larger bust, look for models that provide good support and showcase this area of your body advantageously.

Solid-Colored or Patterned – Fashionable Designs

In a swimsuit, women are always subject to many looks. Therefore, the choice of color is of great importance. A light, pastel, or white color looks stunning on women with a slightly darker complexion and brown or black hair. Natural tones like brown or olive, as well as light blue shades, complement blondes and redheads with fairer skin.

A bold color like red or pink requires some courage but looks equally attractive on sun-kissed skin. With a pattern on the swimsuit, you can accentuate your favorite body parts. Scattered flowers, a delicate paisley pattern, or graphic prints make the waist and stomach appear slimmer. Confident women like to wear animal prints, large-scale prints, or a retro look.

With an elegant corset shape with draping effect on the front, you easily add feminine accents. Striking ruching and shiny decorative elements in the front support an especially elegant look. If you want your feminine line subtly played around, opt for swimwear with elaborate beaded decoration, thoughtful details, and shaping lining.

Caring for Beautiful Swimsuits Properly

Salt, minerals, chlorine - some ingredients in the water attack the elastic fibers. Therefore, rinse your swimwear with clear water after each use. After the vacation or with very frequent use, a hand wash with a mild detergent is appropriate. Please never dry your high-quality women's swimsuit in direct sunlight or on the heater; instead, hang it loosely on a hanger. Plastic bags are not recommended for storage.
