Where does mix and match come from?

In the 1950s, women loved purchasing various pieces that matched to help them elegantly coordinate their looks. However, designers at the time were also big on creating mix-and-match outfits to allow women to specially tailor their appearance – simply put, mix-and-match items provide you with the best of both worlds!

Bikini tops and briefs, tankini sets, skirted bottoms, you name it – we’ve got it here at Matalan. Featuring an abundance of plain and print designs that can easily be mixed and matched, our range will ensure you’re the star of your beach and pool days.

Is it okay to wear a mismatched bikini?

You’ve heard the rumours, and the rumours are true – a mismatched bikini is perfect for your holiday suitcase. As long as they look like they belong together, you can mix together two different patterns for a look that’s as natural and effortless as a coordinated swim set!

At Matalan, you can make a mismatched bikini look wonderful by combining light and dark pieces for a stunning colour contrast. Or you could team a solid colour bikini top with a printed pair of bikini briefs – or vice versa – for unique and versatile look that other beachgoers will truly envy.

Are tankinis out of style?

Fan of a tankini? Don’t worry – contrary to some people’s beliefs, they never really went out of style. With the power to make you look like a classic film star, a tankini set is a more reserved, yet still chic and gorgeous, alternative to ever-popular bikini combos.

Guaranteed to make you feel confident and elegant at the beach or poolside, Matalan’s tankinis are made from durable and stretchy material to provide maximum comfort as you move. What’s more, they come in a great range of colours, such as black and pink, to ensure there’s plenty to choose from!

What bikinis are best for big busts?

We care about every body type getting the love and respect it deserves here at Matalan. From a stylish wrap bikini top that pairs well with flattering high-waisted bottoms, to a super chic and coordinated one-piece set, our bikini tops ensure that bigger busts don’t get left out.

Matalan’s plus size range is specifically tailored for larger chested ladies looking for pieces that are as supportive as they are cute and comfortable. The best bit? Our bikini bras come in bright solid colour and print designs that will slot seamlessly into your summer holiday suitcase.

How do you wear a bikini?

Not sure how to style your swimwear? We’re here to help. Bikini bottoms should sit along your hips to beautifully sculpt your figure. They should also fit tightly to prevent a sag or droop – depending on the pairs you choose, they’ll either provide full or partial cheek coverage.

That’s why Matalan is a place to love. Due to our wide range of fits and sizes, you’re sure to find the perfect amount of coverage to make you feel stunning at the beach or pool - just remember to pick up a lovely bikini top to beautifully mix or match!
