Make A Splash This June!
WIth Becci Hanson, TABS founder & Owner
There’s nothing like buying a new swimsuit to get you stoked for summer!
Back in March we wrote about the trend for patterns on the runway, so it’s no surprise that the trend would work its way into swimwear. Have fun mixing playful patterns. You can also mix and match them with a solid complementary colour.
Check out the sale section upstairs in Calypso for designer swimwear at discounted prices and you can just mix and match to find the best combination. It also means that you can get a top and bottom that BOTH fit.
Cutouts are another trend for summer 2014. A cutout one-piece is a great mix of sexy and edgy, especially if you’re not ready to bare it all in a bikini! Making Waves has a really fun Batman suit for the more adventurous.
TIP: Don’t forget sunscreen. If you’re going to be in the sun, slather on the sun block because a cutout suit will create some crazy tan lines!
It’s hard to go wrong with a string bikini. Making Waves has some bright colours by Body Glove and I loved the colours and fit of the bikinis in Women’s Secret. They have some cute beach bags as well.
TIP: If you’re self-conscious about your hips or thighs, stick with a fringe on top. Jewels and metal detail can also draw attention away from problem areas… just be careful in the hot sun!
High-wasted bikinis are also making a come back this summer. The cut is both feminine and flattering. Embrace this retro look with big, round sunglasses and a wide-brim sun hat.
If wearing a bikini fills you with dread, then check out the tummy control swimsuits from Marks & Spencer’s. These flattering shapes will keep you looking sophisticated and comfortable. Pair with a wrap, large sunglasses and a hat to draw the attention to you face. We love the throws from Seasons, which can be worn in 6 different ways!

Look Sharp, Buy Smart, Go Local.
Our shorts fit true to size i.e. if you wear a 34 in your trousers you will be a 34 in TABS. If in doubt go bigger, TABS look great with a belt!
A size 34 short has a waist circumference of 36" and 11.5” rise.
The waist circumference for every short measures 2 inches larger than the stated size. All traditional Bermuda shorts have a 8.5" inseam.

These shorts fit true to size but are slightly more fitted than TABS Bermuda Shorts. If in doubt go bigger, there is a hidden draw string to adjust the waist.

Our polos are a mix between an American and European fit that is form fitting. Size up if you prefer your polo's roomier.
Size M has a 70cm front length and 73cm back length.
Our women's 'Turn Up' shorts run slightly small so if you're in-between sizes we suggest sizing up!
