1. With Summer starting to sneak it’s way in here in Sydney, what are the go-to shapes for swimwear this season?
The high neck sports-influenced bikini tank is definitely a go-to this season in bright and bold colours. The 80’s style maillot is also back this season,
Our 80’s Tank Maillot style à la Pamela Anderson in Baywatch has a high cut bottom which creates the illusion of gorgeous long legs.
2. How do different swimsuit shapes and styles flatter different figures?
Whether it is a one-piece, bikini or tankini, the trick to feeling confident in wearing a swimsuit is to choose a style that suits your body shape!
Baku creates swimsuits going up to a size DD bra that is matched back with items that flatter all figures. The most important rule is balance – you want your bottom and top half to balance and for your body to look proportional. For example, an hourglass figure suits balconette style bras and high-waisted pants that accentuate curves, such as our Rockefeller style,
However, rounder body shape suits halter styles with a deep V that create visual length and define the waistline.
3.What are some must-have colours or styles for everyone’s holiday bag?
A cool kaftan is a must and white is the perfect colour to highlight your pool-side tan! Fun prints such as our Bali print combine colour and style along with sports-inspired textures, cut outs and bandings are essential in your holiday bag.
4. For those that like to cover up a little more pool-side what are some ways to enjoy the new styles coming in this summer?
Again, a kaftan is perfect for this – throw it on top of your bikini for added comfort. High-waisted vintage-style bikinis are also great especially for new mums who want to cover up after pregnancy, not only are they on-trend, but will have you feeling comfy and confident.
Tankini styles are also great, they cover the top half of your body but come in a great range of prints and colours so they won’t make you look frumpy!
