Imagine this ... Dark oversized sunnies and a large broad brim, neutral tone straw hat slightly bent to cover the sun from penetrating into your eyes. A long flowing, light weight soft leopard print sarong that floats down over the sides of the bar stool you are relaxing on. The split in the sarong reveals your beautifully tanned shapely crossed legs with a glint of sparkle falling evenly around your left ankle. You take a sip of the ice cool cocktail the bartender has served you with a smile.
Can you smell the salt air and feel the tropical humidity, are you feeling the vacation vibes and feeling relaxed?
Now stop - take a mental note of the image we have created, close your eyes and imagine.
Breathe in and relax – ahhhhhhh
Now I have one question for you …What colour swimsuit are you wearing?
Did you say BLACK?
We know this was a long winded way of telling you this - 70 - 80% of us have said Black.
A perfectly fitting black textured one piece swimsuit that fits me perfectly and looks elegant and sophisticated, that is totally what I imagined myself in – in my imaginary picturesque ideal vacation location… (please take me there now!).
But what is it that makes nearly all us women choose to imagine ourselves in a black swimsuit?
In this blog we are going to give you a few reasons as to why most women love a good black swimsuit.
There are pros and cons to wearing a completely black swimsuit, but by the end of this blog, hopefully you’ll be able to make a decision on choosing a black one piece over another bright summer coloured style swimsuit.
So why is it we all like to wear black one piece swimsuits?
For us, the ideal vacation and that beautiful setting requires the most elegant of swimsuits. And for 70% of all of us, that is a black swimsuit.
A black swimsuit is stylish, classic, elegant, and easy to wear. You can just put on a black one-piece, black bikini or a black tankini and know that you’re going to feel good, feel confident, feel elegant and sophisticated.
Is a black swimsuit naturally slimming?
As women, we are always a little bit concerned about what our body looks like in swimwear and summer can bring out the worst of our insecurities. At Nip Tuck Swim we encourage all women to feel confident, empowered, secure and happy in their swimwear, and we design swimwear to create the best slimming, shape enhancing and easy to wear swimsuit shapes.
Our Tummy control technology is an integral part of our women’s black swimwear and has been carefully developed so our Nip Tuck Swim women get the most benefits from it.
Our figure flattering women’s black swimwear styles are created by combining a multitude of design elements.
Our powermesh lining fabric can be found on the inside front of all our black one pieces, black tankini sets and black bikini swim pants. The main purpose of using powermesh on our women’s swimwear is to increase the support of the garment and give a smoothing and slimming effect to the curves of the body.

So what are the pro's and con's of wearing black swimwear?
Wearing black swimwear (as everything) has it’s pros and cons.
- Wearing a black swimsuit instantly provides figure-flattering benefits. Black swimsuits can even make you look taller and slimmer (and who doesn’t love that?!).
- Black swimsuits are a wardrobe-unlocking masterpiece. Black swimsuits coordinate with EVERYTHING. You can pair any coloured and patterned cover-ups and accessories with your black swimsuit for an effortlessly put-together outfit.
- Timeless and classic. Black swimwear never goes out of style. It is always on trend and never goes out of style.
- Black swimwear is stylish and classy. They just give off an air of elegance and grace – a very Kathrine Hepburn and a little black dress vibe.
- Speaking of the little black dress, a black swimsuit is the little black dress of the swimwear world, it works with almost every skin tone and always looks dressed up.
- Wearing the colour black is just so easy, it’s the type of swimsuit that you can just throw on without thinking about it. No brain power or guess work required here!
- Your black one-piece can also double as a body suit to wear from day to night. Oh the versatility.
So really is there ANY reason at all why we shouldn’t just be endlessly wearing a black swimsuit this summer? Well YES, for some of us there is.
It’s important to consider the potential Cons when considering what colour swimsuit to buy. The following reasons are the ‘why’ of why we don’t always recommend a black swimsuit.
- Black is extremely flattering, but not all the time! This depends on the make of the swimwear (and everybody is different!). For example, we would prefer our black swimsuits in a textured fabrication because on us that feels the most flattering. Our Delta bubble texture and our Gamma textures are great examples of black, figure flattering textured swimsuits, but we’ll touch on the benefits of a texture later.
- Some experts claim that black may age the face by drawing attention to shadows under the eyes, wrinkles on the face and lines under the chin. This means that some may struggle to look and feel fresh whilst wearing black.
- Everyone’s personal style and moods impact the colour they feel most comfortable wearing. Black might not be your favourite flavour every day of the week! There’s also such a thing as wearing ‘too much’ black. This might make you feel stuck in a rut which is never a nice feeling. Just as much as your mood can impact the colour you choose to wear, the colour you’re wearing can also impact your mood.
- Sometimes more means less! Wearing a print like a busy floral is sometimes more figure flattering than a flat black swimsuit.
- Whilst we love black it also has a bit of a bad reputation, being a colour that people wear primarily to work and funerals. A fabulous beach holiday may not seem like the perfect place to wear such a colour.
Black swimwear that makes me look good
So in summary – YES a black swimsuit can be more flattering at the right time on the right day in the right mood as long as it’s a textured black swimsuit and not a flat or shiny black swimsuit. We currently have a couple of gorgeous textured black swimsuits available – Delta and Black Gamma.
Delta is our definition of that one go to swimsuit that always works. Delta is our bubble texture that is figure flattering and features the support and style of a classic Nip Tuck Swim swimsuit. Delta features multifit cups, powermesh lining and select styles also have ruching for extra figure forming capabilities. Delta is available in a variety of one pieces, tankini and bikini shapes and features in our must haves collection.
Gamma is our new diamond texture that supports you and makes you look as good as you feel. Gamma is available in two colour ways – black and orange, making it perfect to add a bit of black sophistication and fun colour to your collection. Gamma is available in one pieces, tankini sets and bikini sets, most of which feature gold detailing on the shoulder straps for a little extra bit of glam.
I’d say it’s always good to have one fabulous go to black swimsuit in your swim closet for when you are feeling like it’s a black swimsuit kind of day. From here you can build up the rest of your swimsuit collection with a selection of colour and prints as we all should feel happy and confident whilst in our swimmers. We are all about enjoying life and as our motto goes. we make the swimsuits for you to make the memories.
So go forth and make the memories just remember to pack a couple of different swimsuits so you can feel happy and empowered every day.
