Which products are best for offering a fuller coverage?

At Melissa Odabash we understand the importance of feeling comfortable and confident in your swimwear. Our range of bikini tops and bottoms are sold separately providing the opportunity to mix and match to create your own set.

Full Coverage Bikini Tops

Our range of halterneck bikini tops can be adjusted by the straps to deliver enhanced support and comfort, we’d recommend our best-selling Paris Brussels styles for this desired look. Opt for the new Colombia style which features underwiring and a tie back fastening providing optimum comfort.  A fuller bust should never have to compromise on style.

Full Coverage Bikini Bottoms

Shop our full coverage bikini bottoms to complete your look, our best-selling styles include Bel Air, which fits higher on the waist and Brussels which has signature fold over style bottoms which can be adjusted for a smaller or fuller coverage. For hipster styles which have a fuller coverage look to the Paris & Colombia.

Full Coverage Onepieces

Melissa Odabash offers innovative designs for fuller busts in the form of our thoughtfully designed one pieces. Look to the renowned Sydney, Kos and Lisbon styles to create a figure flattering finish with a little more coverage to create a functional & fashionable poolside style. 

Which styles would you recommend for offering breast support?

We have a range of supportive and underwired swimwear in a variety of colours and styles to deliver unrivalled body confidence and optimum support.

Supportive Bikini Tops

Our recommended favourite bikini tops include signature styles like the Bel Air, the Brussels, the Colombia & Vegas. For styles with removable pads, look no further than our bestselling options including the Cancun & Grenada Bikini tops which feature adjustable straps and a wider triangle shape to create your desired level of coverage.

Supportive Onepieces

For one pieces which offer unrivalled optimum support look to classic Odabash silhouettes like the Tampa, Libson Panarea onepieces. Featured in classic colourways in the new core collection and in paisley and ribbed swimwear fabrics. 



Product Fit

Sizing

All swimwear sizing is displayed in UK sizing from UK 6-16, some styles are now available in a size 18 as part of our curve swimwear. Our models wear our sample sizes which is a UK10. Beachwear sizes are available from XS-XL subject to the product and some styles may be one size.

What size should I choose if I’m larger on top or bottom?

Melissa Odabash aims to provide a truly personalised beach silhouette for all shapes and sizes, we offer the flexibility to select your bikini top and bottom size which is why our products are sold individually.

For onepieces if you are larger on bottom with a smaller size bust, we would generally advise to size up. If in doubt please email our customer service team who will be happy to help.

In general, how do Melissa Odabash styles fit?

Due to the luxurious Italian cut, Melissa Odabash swimwear fits small to size - therefore we would advise for you to size up to achieve the swimwear size we think you will feel most confident in.  Please see our swimwear fit guide for more details on signature Odabash styles.

Our beachwear fits true to size due to the bohemian flare of the styles, they have been designed for a loose and relaxed fit.

How do your bikini bottom styles compare in terms of size?

As some styles have a noticeably lower cut fit including our cheeky and tie side bikini bottoms we would generally advise to size up in these products in contrast to our high waisted style and full coverage bottoms which have been specifically designed with a more generous fit.

If I don’t know my measurements can I use my dress size and bra size equivalents?

We have listed our model’s measurements at the bottom of each individual product to provide a visual guide for the sizing of each product. Our sample size is a UK size 10. If you have any doubts please refer to our size guide or contact our customer service team via email.


Fabric & Care

Are the products double lined?

Melissa Obabash’s premium swimwear offers a range of products which are double lined.

Do your products provide SPF protection?

Yes most of our fabrics offer SPF protection, where applicable this has been listed on the product bullet points on the product page below the description.

Do your fabrics offer a flattering fit?

Our products are expertly crafted from the finest quality of Italian stretch swimwear fabric and our cuts have been thoughtfully designed to create a figure flattering silhouette.

How should I care for my swimwear?

We recommend that your swimwear is hand washed with a very mild detergent and laid flat to dry to maintain its premium quality. We would advise to take special care with our ribbed and ridges swimwear which is more prone to snagging. Please refer to our care instruction guide here

Please note that all knitted and crochet beachwear styles must not be hung to avoid any sizing or shape defects. 

Are all Bikini products the same shade and fabric and easy to mix and match?

We want to make it as easy as possible to mix and match our bikini tops and bottoms to create your perfect look. However, please note that the variation of fabric colours is inevitable. If you have any doubts please contact our customer service team who can confirm if shades and fabrics may differ.

A product I’m interested in is sold out. Can I still purchase this?

The best way to find out about potential restocks is to contact our customer service team with the product and size you’re looking for and your details can then be added to our waiting list.
