Curvy Kate Sheer Class

The Curvy Kate Sheer Class swimwear range is at the top of our list of must-have LBBs! It uses simple, clean lines with a modern and timeless design for killer style, mixing opaque fabrics with sheer mesh panels to highlight and contour your beautiful curves. Choose from a classic foam lined balconette bikini top (with convertible straps!), or the stunning bandeau which can be worn completely strapless. Pair it up with one of the three matching briefs - a classic mini bikini brief with sheer mesh sides, the retro-inspired high waist brief for that hourglass silhouette, or the versatile deep fold brief with a mesh waistband that can be worn high or low on the hips. It's a total mix and match dream so you’ll be guaranteed to look fab-u-lous no matter which combo you opt for!
