Horizontal stripes have been reviled for not being figure-flattering, but that didn’t stop Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor to solve this problem for curvy bombshells.

It’s no secret that this design has been selling out like hotcakes.

The ever-versatile piece can easily be worn outside the beach if you wear it with a pair of high-waisted jeans and espadrilles.
If you have an apple-shaped or boyish body, never will you ever have to gripe about finding a swimsuit ever again. Curve-building panels and bursts of colour create the lines that your body always craved for.
