"The quality of the fabric and design features of the suit have been very well thought through. Not too cheeky at the back! That was my biggest fear. So well done to Tribe Tropical for designing and making an excellent product. I’ll be back for my next swimsuit as well." - Allison C


Our elegant Womens Frill-Sleeved Swimsuit in our new Hamilton Island print is designed for ladies who value sun-safe style, but without the long sleeves. 

This suit provides sun protection across the back, chest and shoulders; it is double-lined front & back, and has an in-built shelf bra with removable padding.

The polyester-blend fabric is buttery-soft, will hold its colour, and will keep skin well-protected without agitation.

  • These suits have an in-built shelf bra with removable padding 
  • Front zips allow for easy dressing and permits breastfeeding mothers to nurse with ease.
  • Modest cut at the back  - comfortably covers the backside.
  • Ultra comfortable & easy to wear for long periods of time.

Feedback from other women is that these swimsuits run: on the small side 

Some women have found that these beautiful suits run a bit small (^particularly in sizes 2XL & 3XL) - we recommend sizing up, especially if:

1) you are between sizes
2) you are taller than average or longer in the body
3) your bust size is large in comparison to your frame

If you purchase a size that isn't right, you're welcome to send it back for exchange / refund - please see our returns policy for further details.

Stunning swimsuit

Love my new swimsuit. Fits great and after I reviewed the sizing and reviews I purchased 2 sizes up as I dont like tight clothing. The cute little frill cap sleeves really finish the swimsuit off beautifully.

Carolyn Martin
Sizing runs small

Looks good quality but runs small in size. I’m normally a 12-14 so I bought XL but have had to exchange to 2XL. Will see how it fits when I can reorder.

Join the swim crowd

The fabric is soft, the colours are vibrant & the styling is very flattering. Loving the shoulder coverage from the little caps as well.

BEST swimsuit for confidence!!

First swimsuit I’ve had in years that made me feel fantastic!!!
The colours are vibrant, fabric soft and strong, very comfortable.
I insisted that my hubby take me to the beach so I could enjoy the sunshine - feeling confidant at last!
A big deal for a Woman of a certain age, with wobbly bits I’m not happy with 💕😍

Wonderful swimwear

I bought this swimsuit to match with my son and I was not disappointed. The quality of the swimwear is absolutely amazing! They are so vibrant and beautiful also. I did find they run on the smaller size so make sure you size up. I was also very impressed by the style. It is such a flattering piece and gives that beautiful soft touch with the arm ruffles. It helps hide those insecurities of being a mum!

My kids wore these swimmers for over 2 years. Not one issue with them, they still have a good year or two in them as well so last 3-4 years. We've had no fade or stretch, no pulling or pilling. Have handed down to friends children as my children outgrew them. Love them so much.

I am really impressed with the level of support the ladies swimsuit provides, even for a larger cup size, which is so hard to find.

Fantastic to wear for any water activity. I love the sun protection and comfort of the swimsuit while surfing, paddleboarding or just chilling at the beach.
— Amy M.
Tribe Tropical swimwear is by far the best designed and quality in Australia. The thought process that has gone into these designs, made for comfort, quality and being so sunsafe is a stand out. Each time my daughter wears these they wash up like brand new.

Hi! I’m Emily, mother of 3 little girls and founder of Tribe Tropical. 

Growing up I used to dread beach days!
As a red-head with fair skin, growing up in the tropics, I either had to risk being teased by other kids for covering up in a daggy old t-shirt, or end the day sunburnt & in pain. 

Having since suffered with countless skin cancer treatments (and further to the loss of my grandfather due to melanoma), I understand the importance of sun protection - I started Tribe Tropical with a desire to protect my family and yours in beautiful, high-quality sun-protective swimwear that people would feel good in & enjoy wearing. 

No-one should dread a beach day! I hope to help you to make them fun & burn-free also.
