The Bikini Breakdown: Toco Swim

I own four Toco Swim bikinis Since discovering the brand last year – So I think it’s fair to say I’m a fan.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from this bikini, it’s not to be so cynical when it comes to non-cup-sized swimwear.

As a H-cup, I’m used to shopping for cup size bikinis, and was always convinced that a top marked S, M, L or 12, 14, 16 would never fit or support me. However, in a desperate attempt to try and find a great bikini for achieving a near to perfect tan, I took a leap of faith last year with British brand Toco Swim, which surprisingly paid off.

The Yara bikini top is the only style I have purchased, as recommended to me by Charlotte and Olivia, Toco’s co-founders. They assured me that this style was the best for fuller busts and they weren’t wrong! I now own Yara in four different colours, and their new season colours are my favourite, like this tasty tango set!

Despite my dedication to Yara, I have tried several different styles of their bikini bottoms, in an attempt to work out which style is best suited to my figure. The bottoms I’ve most recently bought are their new Corfu style, which I adore. I love the elasticated sides, which are thick and soft enough that they don’t dig in. They sit perfectly on my hips, creating that 80’s high leg cut.

The Fit

For anyone that has a fuller bust, you’ll know how much a halter neck bikini can hurt and strain your neck. In my case, my boobs weigh around 5kg, which as you can imagine, after a full day at the beach, isn’t so comfortable. But, the Toco Yara bikini top is different. It helps that it includes a supportive under-bust band, but I actually believe it’s the thick, butter-soft fabric used that relieves the stress from my neck.

The fit is slightly revealing, but no more than a little side-boob and cleavage, due to it’s deep V shape design. Ultimately, it’s the perfect fit for working on a tan, ensuring the sunlight reaches those annoying white bits that would usually be covered in a cup-sized bikini.

The Design

I am obsessed with the bright orange colour that this bikini comes in, called Tango. It’s so fun and vibrant. Toco use a dreamy colour palette, and there are plenty more gorgeous shades to choose from.

The Feel

I love this bikini because it’s super soft, it almost feels like a second skin that moves with me. I don’t have to pull at it or adjust it much. And, when it gets wet, it doesn’t lose its shape.

OK, it’s not as supportive as some of my other bikinis, but that was expected. But, wearing it makes me feel confident in a different kind of way… It makes me think: Yes, I know this bikini is on the skimpy side, but just because I have big boobs it doesn’t mean to say that I shouldn’t or can’t wear it!
