Animal Print Swimwear
Join the Wild Side
Be wild. Be free.
Embrace the spirit of the wild with Nip Tuck Swim’s animal print swimwear. The depths of nature’s wild landscapes are calling to your inner animal – the femme fatale, the exotic mystique, the wild woman within. As the leopard moves with the instinct of a predator, you too should move to the beat of your own drum, letting your instincts guide you to your true path in life. Unshackle the chains of everyday living, with all its pressures and demands, and let your inner force come to the surface. You are unique and wild and shouldn’t be made to feel uniform. Like the untamed animals prowling the natural world, you shouldn’t be boxed in by rules and regulations. There is too much to be discovered, both within and externally. The world is vast and calling to you. Become the powerful lioness you are, chasing life’s unpredictable moments with passion and determination.
Bored of the same old routine, day in and day out? Take this as your sign to switch things up and throw yourself into life with wild abandon. Be wonderfully chaotic and fearless in the face of life’s ups and downs, as well as the mundane moments. Add your unique touch to every moment. There is an allure to your natural self that the world sometimes tries to subdue – fight against this and pounce at the chance to be free. You are an important part of the intricate and vast network that makes up all life on earth – own it.
Why Nip Tuck Swim Loves Animal Print Swimwear
Nip Tuck Swim is forever a fan of animal print swimwear for its timeless and enduring appeal as well as the inherent meaning behind animal prints. Animal prints, like the creatures they imitate, are alluring and exotic. They will always appeal to the human eye because of their unique patterning and colouring. This is why the animal print will never fully go out of style. Its inherent meaning, as with its physical appearance, also ties in with the animal it imitates. For example, a leopard print is powerful for us because we associate it with fearlessness, untamed beauty, and unparalleled strength. Similarly, a peacock print affects us meaningfully because we associate it with exotic splendour, flamboyant behaviour, and intrinsic allure. In short, animal print swimwear is a constant source of inspiration at Nip Tuck Swim, with endless possibilities in prints, colours, and silhouettes. The animal print comes and goes on the fast fashion circuit but will ultimately always be a perennial favourite for those with sartorial, enduring style.
Nip Tuck Swim Animal Print Collections
Nip Tuck Swim has several collections inspired by the animals of this vast and ever-inspiring earth we inhabit. Find your spirit animal among our eclectic range of prints shown below.
Animal Magic Natural
The Animal Magic print in a natural colourway is Nip Tuck Swim’s latest take on the classic leopard print. Detailed, realistic rosettes (leopard spots) are etched in shades of black and earthen brown on top of a neutral, pale-yellow base. This creates a wonderful contrast, allowing each element in the print to shine while simultaneously accentuating another element. The Animal Magic print in the natural colourway should appeal to most people for its mixed-scale motifs that create a dimensional look, and upbeat, pale-yellow base that inspires feelings of positivity and lightness.
Animal Magic Blue
For our exotic, fashion-forward, and energised Tuckers, we encourage you to look at our Animal Magic collection in the blue colourway. This print combines the luxury and unique quality of the alluring leopard print with a love of blue and its innate connection to water, nature and hydration. The complementary pale blue and dark blue base in the Animal Magic blue colourway creates a striking contrast with the black medium-scale rosettes. You will look like an energised and empowered woman when wearing a tummy control swimsuit from the Nip Tuck Swim Animal Magic Blue range.
Nip Tuck Swim is continually looking to innovate traditional prints with refreshing and subtle touches. The Leopard Foil collection is an example of this, with its wonderfully unique fabrication and colour palette. Black leopard rosettes are overlaid with shimmering silver foil fabric, giving the exotic and traditional rustic leopard print a gothic, metallic makeover. This chic and elevated imitation of the wild leopard print is available in 3 women’s tummy control swimsuits – the Joanne Twist Front Design Tummy Control One Piece Swimsuit, the Colette Bandeau Tummy Control One Piece Swimsuit, and the Black Leopard Foil Pamela Scoop Back One Piece.

Nip Tuck Swim’s Serengeti Bay leopard print collection provides a more earthen, rustic, and wild take on the leopard print. Rich browns with a dusty overlay are complemented by black rosettes, creating a rich colour palette that speaks to the dark and mysterious animal within you. Let the Serengeti Bay leopard print collection take you away to a remote safari experience where it feels like it’s just you and nature. Exotic and untamed creatures roam free, calling to your wild side. This print comes in a wide range of super flattering tummy control one-pieces swimsuits, protective sunsafe swimwear and slimming two-piece sets.
The Peacock is one of nature’s biggest show-offs, and for good reason. The feathers of a peacock are enthralling, with rich and shimmering colours that catch your eye. Nip Tuck Swim’s Peacock collection is as enchanting as the animal it takes inspiration from. The print features feather motifs in varying sizes so as to create a dimensional print that keeps people looking right at you. A kaleidoscope of colour makes this print shine, with aquamarine blues in light and dark shades, a lavender accent, and grounding black and white touches. The rich colour palette is flattering for many skin tones and hair colours, make one look as though they’re glowing. The Peacock collection by Nip Tuck Swim is available in two tummy control one-piece swimsuits and two slimming tankini sets.
The Fur Real collection by Nip Tuck Swim is a fusion of wild animal prints that speak to your inner fierce. Let the textured artwork of Fur Real and its warm, earthen colour palette take you on a journey through the wilderness of self-discovery and passion. Blend in with the untamed animals of this earth with Nip Tuck Swim’s Fur Real collection, available in the Colette Bandeau Tummy Control One Piece Swimsuit, Pamela Tummy Control Bikini Set Swimsuit, and Joanne Twist Front Design Tummy Control One Piece Swimsuit.
Is Animal Print Tacky?
Animal print swimwear is subject to the same treatment other classic prints receive from the fashion industry and its trend-driven consumers – it undergoes a constant process of innovative reiteration to suit what’s new across the runways, red carpets, and streets of fashion capitals. Some designers miss the mark on what is currently trending, resulting in animal print apparel and swimwear that is outdated, tacky or overwhelming.
Let’s be honest though, some people find that ‘tacky’ apparel and swimwear suits them just perfectly! This sense of style is otherwise known as kitsch, which is characterised by excess, garish details and a ‘more-is-more-is-more' ethos. If this is your sense of style, we support you as much as we support the lover of chic, considered and sophisticated design. If you love kitsch, you may even love Nip Tuck Swim’s Fur Real print, shown above.
For those with concerns that animal print swimwear is inherently tacky, let us set your mind at ease. The often-busy detail of Animal prints can be minimised with small-scale motifs, scaled-back detail, and simplistic colours palettes, among many other techniques. There is always a way to make an animal print stylish... something that Nip Tuck Swim excels at! Take the Animal Magic collection in the blue colourway for example - by giving the traditional leopard print a colour refresh in a light yet crisp blue, an entirely new print is born.

How to wear Animal Prints
Read below for some tips on styling your animal prints.
Keep hair and makeup lowkey
The animal print is often the drawcard of any outfit. Unless your style is more maximalist, you should let the animal print shine with simplistic hair and makeup. A swept back loose ponytail and neutral makeup tones will allow the details of the animal print to stand on their own. If you want, you can subtly pick up on elements of the animal print without taking away from it. For example, you may want to match the brown hues of a traditional leopard print with some subtle yet effective bronze eyeshadow.
Choose timeless silhouettes
If you’re concerned about an animal print being too bold or ‘tacky,’ you can very easily scale it back by wearing it on a classy silhouette. Pair your animal print with chic styles like wide leg pants or pencil skirts for a flattering and classy look. You don’t have to be strict here as many silhouettes can be classy with the right tailoring – the main traits of classic silhouettes are clean lines and structure.
Use block colours for balance
An animal print often uses several colours to convey the texture and detail of whichever animal’s appearance it is imitating. This can lead to a visually stimulating print that is sometimes considered ‘overwhelming.’ Balance this with a neutral block colour like black, white, or nude. This also makes the overall outfit appear cleaner and more calming to look at.
