So what’s the perfect piece? 


Ruched swimsuits are the best combination of comfort, fashion and confidence. The design and texture of ruching brings elegance but also provides functionality and practical benefits. It is a MUST HAVE in every swimwear collection.

What is Ruched swimwear?

Ruching is a widely used design technique where fabric is formed to offer both stretch and a flattering fit on the body. Ruching involves the gathering or pleating of fabric to create textured patterns, typically achieved by sewing in parallel rows or gathering the fabric in specific areas. The feature of ruched swimwear showcases a ‘wrinkled look’ that adds extra movement to the garment, providing a more comfortable fit. As aesthetically pleasing to the eye it is, ruching also provides practical purposes of body sculping, great tummy control and creates an admirable silhouette.

Lets look into the the Evolution of Ruched Swimwear:

As someone who particularly enjoys the history behind fashion trends, ruching has always intrigued me. The origins of ruching dates all the way back to the 19th century when seamstresses would incorporate this technique into petticoats and other decorative garments. Fast forward to the vibrant era of the 1980s, ruching emerged as a glamourous element in formal wear and party dresses. It has made its mark on contemporary fashion, as it remains a cherished design technique across all our clothing. 

Today, ruched swimwear has evolved to cater a diverse range of tastes and preferences. Whether it be for women slim or curvy, our one-piece swimsuits, tankinis, and bikini bottoms remains a versatile and sought-after design element suitable for everyone. The timeless charm of ruching is appreciated by people of all kinds as it can blend into modern elegance while maintaining retro features.

Why do you need a ruched swimsuit?

If you don’t own a ruched swimsuit! What are you doing? Ruched swimsuits are an essential piece of your wardrobe. A timeless and practical swimsuit appropriate for every beach or pool day of the year! Ruched swimsuits are the best style of swimwear to smooth out your feminine curves and waistline. They allow space for movement and sit well along the body. It’s simply stunning from every angle and flaunts a subtle yet flattering silhouette. It is versatile as it can provide tummy control and body sculpting!

Body Sculpting: 

I know I love wearing something that compliments my assets best, and ruched swimwear does quite that! It offers body sculpting benefits by accentuating and complementing your natural curves. The gathered fabric helps create an illusion of curves and contours, providing a shapely and defined look. This body-sculpting effect enhances your body type, giving you the confidence, you need. When we look at fabrics that is smoothed out along the body, this often magnifies any natural folds, however with the subtle textural touch of ruching sitting across the tummy helps divert the attention of these folds and creates a more flattering silhouette.

Tummy control: 

As we ladies get older, so do our bodies. Adapting our style as we age is crucial in uplifting our confidence. I’ve encountered many women saying ‘How do I hide my mom pouch?’ ‘I’d like to hide my tummy more’ ‘Does my tummy look fat in this?’. It’s tough learning to embrace the changes our bodies make and while it’s a mindset thing, the choice of clothing we decide to wear can help uplift and accept the beautiful bodies we have. To help answer these tummy questions, our ruched swimsuits do just that! The placement of ruching along the tummy area of our suits help conceal any midsection concerns you have. The ruching acts as a visual distraction, creating a more seamless look, alleviating the concern of unwanted attention in your midsection.

Confidence Boost: 

We all hear the saying ‘Everybody is a beach body’ which I do agree, we all have different body shapes and sizes that make us beautiful and meant for the beach, but our self-image of our selves doesn’t always agree, especially when we’re not in the correct swimsuit that effectively highlights our body. Ruched swimsuits have the combination of tummy control, comfort and body sculpting which helps significantly boost your confidence. When you feel good in what you’re wearing, your outlook of life changes. A ruched swimsuit can empower you to embrace your body and enjoy your days by the beach with no worries. 

Comfortable fit: 

While Ruched swimwear not only looks great on the body! It also offers a comfortable and supportive fit as the ruching allows extra movement and flexibility while maintaining a classic appearance. It helps mask the areas you don’t want to highlight while sitting on the body comfortably and not too snug. The intentional ruching moves with your body, which means its design is also perfect for our maternity mommas and their growing baby bumps.

How do I care for my ruched swimsuit?

As we embrace a more sustainable lifestyle, it’s important to care and maintain our swimsuits to preserve their shape and color exactly the way we purchased it. There are many ways that we can discover how to care for our swimsuits, whether it be through the care label sewn onto the garment or searching the product online. However, a universal practice should be rinsing our bathers with cold water as soon as we exit the pool or beach. 

Why so? 

Chlorine in pools and salt in sea water can damage the quality of the fabrics and trims of our swimsuits. This is because the chemicals in chlorine can break down fibers causing the elasticity of the fabric to weaken and fade the color. Seawater can leave behind salt crystals and cause the fabric to wear and tear, also leading to stiffness and reduced elasticity. So, it is very important to care for our bathers after use. 

Once taken home, it’s good to provide that extra care of handwashing our bathers with cold water and hanging to dry. 

A few steps to take when caring for our swimsuits: 

1 . Fill up a small bucket of water with gentle garment detergent 

2. Add the bathers and massage them through 

3. rinse to remove all excess detergents 

4. Hang to dry in a shady position 

Avoiding detergents with bleach, chlorine or harsh abrasive chemicals will help refrain your bathers from deteriorating. Treat your bathers as you would treat your delicates. Avoid tumble dry and any heat sources as you wouldn’t want to burn your fabric. If this sounds like a bit too much work for you, placing your bathers in a wash bag on a gentle cycle is also another option to prevent any damages. 

We want your body sculpting and slimming Nip Tuck Swimsuits to last as long as possible! So follow these steps to help prolong your gorgeous bathers!   

As fashion is constantly evolving, ruched swimwear will remain a timeless peace that you can rely on! When it comes to women's swimwear, its not just about what you wear but how you feel in it too! You can never go wrong with owning a ruch bikini set or a one piece. It will help you feel effortless beautiful and super confident, so embrace the design of ruch swimwear and shop a few of our recommended pieces.
