FELLA STYLE GUIDE



FINDING THE FELLA FOR YOU

 

— The pear shape —

You're curvy at the hips and thighs and smaller on top

The key to the perfect swimsuit is balancing your proportions and getting the coverage you need for your bottom half.


TIPS
Avoid reaching for a boy short or thick-banded bottom.
( The extra fabric will only call attention to the area you're trying to mask. )
A plunging neckline, or minimal coverage at the top draws the eye upward, minimizing the bottom.

— THE Hourglass Figure —

You're curvy with a full bust, hips, and bottom

For curvy frames, the key is to highlight your curves while providing enough support and coverage.

TIPS

Asymmetrical suits draw the eye toward the neckline,
highlighting the beautiful line from a woman's neck to her collarbone.
Colour blocking can help highlight your shape, as do retro suits (think high waists).
Supportive bra style underwire top with high waisted bottom is the perfect set.
Supportive style top with more revealing, high cut bottom.

— TUMMY CONCEALING —

You're built a little more like an apple shape and carry your weight mostly in your middle.

Whether you prefer to be covered up or you're out to slim your middle, there are a number of one-piece and two-piece suits, like high-waisted that help to smooth out your middle.

TIPS
If you carry your weight in the lower part of your belly, try on a retro-inspired, high-waist suit.
Don’t wear a top with too much fabric and go for styles with added support to accentuate your top area.
Low neckline full pieces.

      — THE SMALLER BUST —

      Proportionally, you're smaller on top with an A or B cup.

      A smaller chest requires less support, so you can look for styles with more minimal coverage or embellished detailing, bows, and patterns to create the illusion of a larger chest.

      TIPS
      Triangle tops create the illusion of curves, as do tops with bold prints or embellishments with ruffles.
      Bra tops and padded push-up tops offer extra lift and can create cleavage, as can certain halter tops.
      A smaller bust always means you can wear tiny scoop tops or bandeaus — embrace them!

      SUGGESTED STYLES

      HUNTER
      The perfect bandeau style for smaller busted ladies that will give you a bit of a lift. For A-C up.
      KANE
      Bra style top featuring resin loops and and provides a great lift for smaller busted ladies. For A-C up.
      The perfect low cut top for smaller busted girls. 

       

      — THE LARGER BUST —

      Ample cleavage; you're chesty and require more support on top.

      If you're more well-endowed on top, then support is key. Opt for suits with underwire or fabric that is extra supportive. We recommend our signature textured fabric.

      TIPS
      Bra-style tops with underwire and adjustable straps provide extra bust support. The thicker the strap, the more support.
      Higher backs are also a good fit for helping to keep the girls up.
      Explore suits marked with sizing like your regular bra, including styles that go above a D, which are constructed to support a larger bust.

      SUGGESTED STYLES

      FRANCO
      An excellent supportive top featuring thick straps and panelling that fits a range of sizes. It is also the favourite pick for pregnant or breast feeding ladies as the fabric will stretch to sculpt the change in bust size. For B-DD cup. 
      CASANOVA
      Provides a nice boost with supportive underwire and contrast detailed panels with our signature textured fabric. Perfect for the ladies happy to show a bit more and loved by many celebrities. For B-D wear this size.
      BRAD
      For those bigger bust ladies that don’t suit the Casanova and find their bust is popping out a bit too much – the Brad is for them. Having a bit more coverage than the Casanova, the Brad remains one of our best sellers For B-D.
      DANE
      The best bandeau style top for those with largest busts. Due to the rectangular style of the resin ring, this will provide extra coverage. For C-D cup.

       

      — BIGGER BUMS —

      You have a larger behind that needs not be hidden but highlighted.

      We always want what we don’t have. Women with larger bottoms should be showing them off not hiding them away.

      TIPS
      Do not wear full coverage bottoms – this is a big no. It will make your bum look bigger. Medium size to smaller will actually make flatter your behind.
      High cut, thicker sided 80s style bottoms are really flattering.

        — SMALLER BUMS —

        For those women who have what is termed the "pancake bottom" —
        a flat bottom with not much curve.

        Women in this category are wanting to create the illusion of a bum lift. Going for a high waist, boy-short or string bikini is your best option with medium to smaller coverage.
