Make sure you are not the one hiding under the palm tree wrapped in a towel this summer, by knowing what swimwear suits your shape. Chantelle’s 2015 Africa inspired collection draws inspiration from modern prints and harmonious colour combinations,  which are perfect for attracting attention to all the right places and detracting from the wrong ones! As with the brand’s lingerie, the research, technical detail and finishing applied to Chantelle’s swimwear are exceptional.

Here’s Chantelle’s top tips for suiting your shape:

 Cleopatra: Want to show off your shoulders? The bandeau bikini top in Black will do precisely this! A decidedly glamorous and seductive line, Cleopatra features draped detailing, shiny knit and a hammered gold loop.

Cap Verde: Keen to draw attention away from a large bust? The busy bright palm leaf prints will draw all attention to the swimsuit and not to you! Try the ¾ T shirt bra in Tropical.

Mahlia: Are you body confident with a great tan? Try the underwired plunge bra in canary Yellow. An elegant yet simple line with pleat detailing, accessorised with a tone-on-tone tie.

Dakar: Pear-shaped? Two tone and stripes elongate the body and detract from the hips. Try the triangle underwired bra for support, and in Taupe and Off-white the colour will naturally work with most skin tones.

For over more than 100 years, Chantelle has been a leader in lingerie, and is as loved for its classics as it is for its sensuous lines. Chantelle successfully combines comfort, beauty and elegant taste with a modern touch using the most talented of designers and features like renowned French lace and lingerie technology.
