Can I give 10 stars?!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Every Summer was stressful, knowing I’d have to get into ill fitting bathers that make me feel self conscious! Since I’ve found The Fold I can’t wait for summer. I’ve never felt more supported, confident and free. Not only is the product incredible, but this brands values is everything I look for in a brand. They care for the environment (using recycled materials for the product and the packaging), they are inclusive, diverse and do all that they can to empower women and make women feel better in their bodies. Can I give 10 stars?!!

The Fold Swimwear

I have always been conscious about the way I look in Swimwear. I recently purchased The Base Black Top and Bottoms. They fit perfectly. True to size and so flattering. I feel so comfortable in them. ~ Look out Summer here I come.

Worth every cent, better fit than my bras!

I’ll be frank, I was very hesitant to buy initially. All of these amazing reviews of great fitting bikini tops in F cups ... surely I could be the exception? I’ve never had a good fitting bikini bra tops! I was so so glad to be proven wrong. This top is amazing. Sits flat on the bust with a really supportive band. Gorgeous high quality fabric. Will be buying again.

  • Size Purchased 12E, (previously purchased 12GG in the Base and the review still applies!)
The MOST flattering swimsuit I have ever worn

I have no idea how they do it! This bikini is so comfortable and flattering. I have purchased a few swimsuits from the Fold and I can't imagine ever going back to another brand. This is the only brand I have worn where I feel comfortable and secure, and where the top actually fits properly (I used to be a GG, and the Fold bikinis at that size were just as amazing!) You almost forget you are big busted because everything fits exactly as it should. The best thing about it is that you put these swimmers on, and you just don't have to stress or think about anything else. No more self-consciousness. Buy these swimmers. It's an investment, but every single time you put them on you will be glad you made the plunge. So, so worthwhile. I will buy from here again (and again, and again, and again!) All my thanks to Carly and Stephanie. They have made such a difference with this company.

Just the best, most supportive, most stylish swimwear for a fuller bust

This is my third purchase with the fold In my opinion, both their customer service snd their swimwear have improved over the last few years. Its not the only thing that has changed; my boobs have too since entering peri menopause and the excellent staff helped me navigate a great choice for my same size but different shape boobs. I love the bikini i bought. Great fabric. Great support. Zero nanna.
