Catfixe has always strived to exceed excellence and we have always worked hard at creating new, unique and chic designs. However, this hasn’t always been an easy task and finding the right designer, especially one who would successfully reflect the image and brand of Catfixe was, at moments, quite challenging. With a luxury brand like our’s and with constant quality and value we seek to maintain and excel, bringing in a fresh pair of eyes was one of our the top and most sacred priorities.

Our beachwear and activewear is one-of-a-kind, because of the simple approach – to combine the support and comfort together with style and functionality. Catfixe swimsuits, swimming trunks, leggings and other beachwear are designed for everyone, for every age and body size. That’s why bringing in a new designer, who would work only and specifically for Catfixe, was so important for the brand’s future.

SOME OF NICOLA'S IDEAS AND DRAWINGS

NICOLA'S INSPIRATION

Nicola draws her inspiration mainly from the sounds of the sea, from the quartz white sand on the beach and songs that are generated by the air wizzing through large and beautiful seashells. The sea is a constant, yet somehow always moving and ever changing motive for her luxury swimwear designs. The wave is sometimes also present in her designs combined with straight lines because at Catfixe, the luxury is hidden in details.

Besides the sea, sand and seashells, palm trees and tropical vegetation is also one of the main sources of Nicola’s inspiration. Lush tropical landscapes, rainforests and waterfalls all are being translated into her wonderful, bespoke designs.

BESPOKE & CUSTOM DESIGN

We wish to kindly remind our customers that they can also order bespoke and unique designs, choose colours and patterns that they would like to appear on their very own and unique swimsuit, leggings, tops, etc. Just email us with your ideas and Nicola and our team will transform it into an original and bespoke work of art.

Catfixe bra top swimsuits are one-of-a-kind, and here is why. These swimsuits combine the support and comfort of a bra with the style and functionality of a swimsuit. These swimsuits are ideal for all women especially for those who are looking to emphasise their natural curves or who are looking for better bust support. Catfixe bra top swimsuits are designed for everyone, especially for large-busted women or women who have undergone a breast-related medical procedure – all this thanks to the bra’s discrete lifting action and specifically targeted design.

Therefore, we have decided to give you a short guide on our bra top swimsuits. From underwire tops, to padding and cups, this guide will cover everything you always wanted to know before choosing a swimsuit bra top that is right for you.

BRA TOP STYLES

Built-in bra tops can be found in many swimsuit styles including bikini tops, tankini tops, and one-piece suits. Bra tops are supported with horizontal elastic strips, molded cups or with an underwire.

A term boning, in a swimsuit tops, refers to a plastic or metal seam placed in the side of the suit that provides additional structure and support. This is commonly found in bandeau and strapless tops.

UNDERWIRE BRA TOPS

Most bra tops include an underwire, combined with an inner padding. Underwire bras are built with sewn-in wiring that is placed in a U-shape underneath the breast. The wiring can be made out of metal, wire, or moulded plastic. It is designed to provide support, lift, and separate the breasts.

Hidden underwire does not use a seam to separate the cups from the underwire. It provides a smoother and more natural appearance than a traditional underwire top. Hidden underwire is commonly found in tankini tops and one-piece suits.

BRA TOP CUPS

There are various cup styles in existence today, used in both underwire and non-underwire swimsuit bra tops. It is an industry standard to use an underwire with sewn-in soft cups that comes with built-in fabric to smooth and shape the bust. Underwire with removable soft cups allows the wearer to add or remove the fabric insert. Underwire with sewn-in soft cups and prosthesis pockets are used in post-mastectomy swimwear. It is designed to allow a prosthesis form insert to be placed inside the breast pocket.

soft cup top is a moulded cup that does not use metal or hard plastic to support the bust. Instead, it relies on a thick band of fabric, underneath the bust, to provide support for the wearer’s breasts. Soft cups hold their shape while smoothing, supporting, and covering the breasts. These are also referred to as molded bra cups, shaper bra cups, and foam cups.

PADDING VS. PUSH-UP BRA TOPS

Padded bra tops refer to tops that use silicone or foam padding to add size and shape to the breasts. These can also come with removable padding. Push-up bra tops place padding on the bottom/outside of the bust and is designed to push the breasts up and inward to create instant cleavage.

Padding and push-up bra tops can come in both underwire and non-underwire tops. Padding and push-up pads can also be purchased and inserted into the underwire top or placed inside sewn-in pockets.

CATFIXE BRA SIZES

Whether you are lapping lengths or just lounging on a lilo, feel stylish and secure in our supportive swimwear. We manufacture all sizes including D and DD+, in a wide range of styles and colours, from stand-out brights to classic black.

Most women find that cup-sized swimwear fits them better than swimwear based on dress size. Check out our bra-sized swimwear and run, jump and even cartwheel on the beach, without any fear of spills.

Make sure to find a bra top that fits you in both style and size. Whether you’re searching for support, cleavage or smoothness, there are many options to choose from our online store at catfixe.com.

Catarina Da Eira has been the face behind Catfixe for more than ten years, tirelessly shaping it into a word-wide recognisable luxury beachwear brand. Over time it has grown and become a synonym for high quality, chic and exquisite elegance that it is today. Of course this is just the beginning and Ms Da Eira has much greater and more ambitious plans for the future.

“I see Catfixe as something classy and elegant, yet wearable. Something that reflects sophisticated styles and tastes, but lets you feel comfortable in your own skin wearing it.”  – Catarina Da Eira

Based in London, but targeting the North American, European, Middle Eastern and Russian markets, Catfixe aims to become the brand for luxury beachwear in the world.

THE NEW WEBSITE

In order to make Catfixe grow and to improve it’s brand visibility and recognition, I decided to enter the new 2018 not only with a completely new set of products, but also with a brand new website! This is all, of course, a part of a much larger brand establishing strategy that really had to be done at this stage. Catfixe has been held back for far too long and now the time has come for it to shine. And the new website will most certainly make it shine – literally.

“We decided to go with the golden colour as our new, main brand colour as it represents luxury, purity, wealth and prosperity. All of these qualities are the attributes that Catfixe wishes to be related to and to attract. I was seeking to be inspired and after many dead ends and frustrating tries and failures, my prayers were finally answered. I found Mr Peter Pandurov – digital marketing, web design and modern brand expert and the owner of New Marketing Solutions Ltd who came up with this whole new and refreshed look for the brand and the website. Besides concentrating solely on the brand, our goal was to create a classy and user-friendly online store.” – Catarina Da Eira

THE NEW ONLINE CATFIXE STORE

A new website is like a beautiful butterfly after metamorphosis. Gracious, gentile and simply gorgeous. But now it does not only represent the Catfixe brand for what it truly is – now it is a great and easy way for our faithful and new customers to interact with us, to browse the new products with ease, to purchase their chosen products in various colours and sizes, and to do all of that in their own national currency.

“For me the biggest challenge was finding the right set of colours that would truly reflect the Catfixe brand image and it’s future direction, re-designing the old logo and crating a beautiful, functioning website with multi-currency option, variable, complex products and different size charts. Working with Ms Eira was a great pleasure and she truly inspired me throughout the project. I really enjoyed breathing in a new life into the the website and giving my humble contribution to this amazing brand. I will definitely stay with Catfixe in the future, working closely with Catarina on helping her luxury beachwear brand attain the rank it highly     deserves.” – Peter Pandurov, CEO of New Marketing Solutions Ltd.
