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.

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 a clasp fastening and adjustable ties offering supreme comfort. A fuller bust should never have to compromise on style.

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

Full Coverage One Pieces

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 and fashionable poolside style. 

Which styles would you recommend for offering breast support?

We have a range of supportive and underwired bikini tops in a variety of colors and styles to deliver unrivaled body confidence and optimum support.

Supportive Bikini Tops

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

Supportive One Pieces

For one pieces which offer unrivaled optimum support, look to classic Odabash silhouettes like the Tampa, Lisbon Panarea one pieces. Featured in classic colorways from the Core Collection and in paisley printed and ribbed swimwear fabrics.

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

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

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

Product Fit:


All swimwear sizing is displayed in US sizing from US 2-12 with some styles now available in a size 14 as a part of our curve swimwear. Our models wear our sample sizes which is a US6. Beachwear sizes are available from XS-XL, subject to the product, and some styles may be one size.

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 relaxed bohemian flare of the styles, designed to be loose fitting and flattering.

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 higher waisted and full coverage bikini 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 US size 6. If you have any doubts please refer to our size guide or contact our customer care 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 qualities on the product page. 

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 as it 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 colors is inevitable. If you have any doubts, please contact our customer care team who can confirm if shades and fabrics may differ.
