Bikini & Swimwear Advice

We offer a range of styles of bikini tops, bottoms and one pieces expertly designed to complement every Odabash woman. Please see below a list of helpful FAQs we’ve created for finding your perfect fit and answering general product related queries.

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 offering the opportunity to mix and match to create a flattering yet full coverage.

Our range of halterneck bikini tops can be adjusted by the straps to deliver a fuller coverage, we’d recommend our best-selling Provence & Brussels styles for this desired look. 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 Bel Air, which fits higher on the waist and Brussels which has signature fold over style bottoms.  Our high-waisted bikini bottoms offer the highest coverage whilst enhancing your hips and waist and to create a modest yet sculpted silhouette, one of our recommended styles is the Lyon bottoms.

Melissa Odabash offers innovative designs for fuller busts in the form of our thoughtfully designed one pieces. Look to the Aruba, Sydney and Kos styles to create a figure flattering finish with a little more coverage to create a functional & 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 colours and styles to deliver unrivaled body confidence and optimum support.

Our recommended favourite bikini tops include the Bel Air, the Brussels, the Provence & the Montreal. For styles with removable pads, look no further than our bestselling options including the Cancun & Maldives Bikini tops which feature adjustable straps and a wider triangle shape to create your desired level of coverage.

Our supportive range has complimenting medium to full coverage bottoms including the BrusselsBel Air and Provence styles.  

For one pieces which offer unrivaled optimum support look to the Tampa and Sanremo styles.

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

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

Therefore we’d recommend opting to size up for your bikini top or bottom accordingly and choosing your normal size in the other (please see our fit tips on each product).

Product Fit FAQs

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. 

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 colours are inevitable. If you have any doubts please contact our customer service team who can confirm if shades and fabrics may differ.

For example our ‘yellow ribbed’ fabric offers a different finish to products with only ‘yellow’ in the product name.

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 UK size 10. If you have any doubts please refer to our size guide here or contact our customer service team.

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 high waisted style and full coverage bottoms which have been specifically designed with a more generous fit.

Does your beachwear have the same size guide as swimwear?

No, our beachwear in general fits true to size and therefore we would recommend to refer to our beachwear clothing size guide here.
