NZ Swimwear Sizes & Info

New Zealand womens sizes are the same as Australian sizes.

If you wear a normal size 12 dress fitting then your size should be a NZ 12 or Medium in our swimwear and clothing. Your bust size is on top of that. 12D, 12DD, 12E etc. US sizes are usually at least a size smaller in the number.   e.g. NZ size 14 is the same as a US size 12 .

Mens Sizes:  New Zealand sizes are the same as the UK and Australian sizes.

Some of the Speedo classics here are well suited  for training in the pool, as they are made from Chlorine resistant fabric. A Speedo size 14=32"/ S. 16=34"/ M. 18=36"/ L.  20=38"/XL. 22=40"/XXL. 24=42"/3XL etc. A lot of the swimwear on the dummies here are too large for the dummies, but they will fit firmly once on a body of the correct size as they are all made from stretch material.

> We recommend that you do not wear your best swimsuit in Spa baths, as it could cause damage to your swimsuit.

> Fake tanning products and some sunscreen lotions may mark and damage swimwear. Always make sure they are completely dry before they come in contact with your swimwear.

Diamond Shape: - Waist measurement is equal to, or wider than, the hips and shoulders.

If you're a Diamond, make the most of your figure by choosing swimwear that draws attention to your bust line, such as a V-neck or plunging neckline. To achieve this, choose either one-pieces with mid-body detailing such as ruching, or a Tankini singlet with A-line features that don't cling to your mid-section.

Triangle Shape: - Hips and buttocks are wider than the shoulders.

If you're a triangle, select swimwear that draws the eye up. Halter straps will balance your shoulder width and minimize your hips. Enhance your bust with molded booster tops, ruffles, and frills. When choosing bikini sets, opt for a fuller pant with correct coverage.

Hour Glass Shape: Full bust and hips with a defined waistline.

If you're an Hourglass, keep an eye out for retro styles featuring waist detail (such as ruching) and beautiful necklines. Wide straps or halter-necks are best as they draw the eye upwards to your shoulders. Always support the bust with hidden underwire and specialty molding. Camouflage problem areas with larger prints - they're much more effective than solid colour.

Heart Shape: - Prominent bust size, body width is generally more than the waist and hips.

If you're a Heart, search for cup fittings with underwire and molded bras in sizes marked D/DD/E/F. Adjustable, fuller-strap widths will help support the extra weight of your bust. Try on different styles with your cup fitting to find the exact, most-flattering match for your body.

Square Shape: - Generally shorter in height with proportioned physical features.

If you're a Square, accentuate your curves  by choosing details such as cutouts, ruffles, and frills. Look for molded push-up bras with booster pads to enhance your cleavage, and opt for pants with side-ties and skirt details to widen your slim hips.

Rectangle Shape:‚Äč Hips and shoulders are similar in width. Minimal waist definition, a smaller bust.

If you're a Rectangle, the goal is to create a waistline and draw the eye away from your mid-section. Plunging necklines, halter straps, and strapless bandeaus are ideal. So, too, are pants with frilled detail and girly skirts. These pieces all ensure the focus isn't on your torso.
