Like lingerie, picking out the perfect swimsuit in Singapore can be a tricky job, no matter your shape and size. In the vast sea of bikini styles and cuts out there, you want a swimming cossie that looks sensational and makes you feel good with the right fit, support and coverage.
Instead of stressing, new swimwear label August Society is putting your endless search for the dream bathing suit to rest – with its versatile range of well-made and beautiful collection of bikinis. Founder Toni Chan and her team asked dozens of women what they hated about buying and wearing swimwear, and sought to resolve these issues when creating the brand. “Few women have perfectly proportioned bodies,” says Toni. “So why do most brands assume everyone should buy the same sized top and bottom?”
Besides boasting amazing construction – August Society swimwear pieces are made in Bali with high quality Lycra fabric which hugs your body whether you’re in or out of the water – to flatter every shape, bikinis are sold separately at the web store, so you can mix and match styles.

Going the extra mile to help ladies nail the fit, August Society has created a nifty guide to picking the best swimsuit for your body shape, which can be downloaded for free when you sign up as a member. The comprehensive 21-page handbook will take you through measurements in order to identify your body shape, whether it’s the beguiling banana (athletic), the alluring apple (oval), the perfect peanut (hourglass), the seductive strawberry (inverted triangle), or the provocative pear (triangle). For each body type, you’ll find valuable tips on the type of cuts and designs that will flatter your unique curves.
