Curvy Kate Caribbean Curves Tankini

16 Mar

When I heard that Curvy Kate were bringing out a swimwear range I was very excited!

I adore turquoise and animal print, so it seemed perfect for me! I decided to try the “Caribbean Curves Tankini” as I always struggle to find tankinis that support me as well as bikinis do.

I went for a 36H/20 set as I do find that Curvy Kate bottoms come up a touch small and there is nothing worse than muffin top on the beach! I was not disappointed…

The length is utterly perfect on my long torso and it is so flattering.
The inbuilt bra has a hook and eye fastening and that means it gives me a great support and shape.


Of course the true test of the tankini will be when I get to a beach or pool, but so far so good! It is very flattering and comfortable, not too tight or restrictive. Pop over to Simply Yours to get your hands on one!

    Wow, I love that set! I have to say, though, I really like cut/color of the built-in bra underneath the tankini. I wish they’d make a bikini top with that!!! :D

    I have been lusting after this set since I found out Curvy Kate existed. I hope it fits me as I can’t wait for its availability in the USA. Thank you George! And thank you Curvy Kate!

    You look GREAT – and I think the colour and pattern really suit you.

    This is really flattering on you, both the cut and the awesome purples.

    You look absolutely great :)
    I need to try a tankini – any tankini. Last year on the beach I realised I was not confident enough to show my belly and a tankini seems to be just what I need :)

    Hi there
    Did you find that the center gore on the built in bra fit flat against your chest? I bought the same size I wear in the princess (which is my usual size) and I found that it does not. The vendor I bought it from says it is not designed to and that it’s fine, but I’m not so sure. It looks like yours does sit flat against your chest.

    thanks

    The band seems pretty stretchy to me, I wear a 34GG or 36G usually, and I bought the tankini top in 34GG (same as what I wear for Princess, which I wear with an extender while it breaks in). I measure at 35.5 under the bust, but I’m pretty squishable! So odd that the vendor would tell me it wasn’t supposed to fit with the gore against your chest. Makes me mad….I should have known, since they also say to measure on the top of your bust for your band size on their website. I wish there were more places to buy the Curvy Kate swimwear in the US.

    Thanks for all your help! Love your blog.

    Does this tankini fit the same as the Daily Boost? I tried that bra and it was a total bust for me. It gave me a flattened on top pointed down shape in the correct size. I’d like to try this tankini but I fear it might have the same cut.
