Brand Spotlight: Artesands

Posted on May 12 2023

“No six packs and thigh gaps here – we are all about the curve” - Artesands

Designed in Sydney Australia, Artesands is a high quality swimwear brand that specializes in designing and creating swimwear for curvy and plus-size bodies. The brand's philosophy is to enhance and support the curves of women, focusing on real curvy women rather than fashion models for their fittings. Artesands recognizes that every woman's body is unique and does not fit into a standard size mould, so they emphasize the importance of knowing one's own measurements to find the perfect swimwear that fits their individual curves.

The brand was born out of frustration with the lack of swimwear options available for curvy women in the market. It aims to challenge societal beliefs and stereotypes about larger women and promote body positivity. Artesands believes that every body is a bikini body and strives to design swimsuits that provide support where needed and showcase curves in their best light.



In addition to their focus on swimwear, Artesands is also committed to making a positive impact in the wider world. They have partnered with i=Change, an organization that supports charitable projects such as ACON, which provides mental health support for the LGBTQ community in Australia, Thread Together, which provides essential clothing for those in need, and Plan initiatives, which provides access to menstrual hygiene management to help secure a girl’s education.


The Arte Collection

Arte by Artesands offers one-size-fits-most options for curvy bodies that are ethically designed and manufactured in Sydney, Australia. The swimwear is made from a sustainable, flexible, body-hugging, crinkle fabrication that is side seam free and moulds to the curves of the wearer. The Arte range is designed to fit US sizes 8-18 or Australian sizes 12-20 and can accommodate cup sizes A-G.
Their Kahlo One Piece is designed to celebrate the wearer's body. It features a sleek, contemporary tank design with a scoop front and back and a high-leg silhouette.
The Kahlo Bikini Set consists of a sporty crop top with thick supportive straps, a scoop neckline, and wide underbust band for support, and a mid-rise, high-leg bikini bottom.
