Hot Hot Hot!

As the world’s most prominent Swimwear lines gathered in Miami Beach for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, the sun glared and watered glittered beautifully to prepare for the setting of long runways and model mayhem.

Miami is a perfect city full of life and culture to present Swim Collections year after year.

As Monday arrived, the Grande Cabana Tent at The Raleigh Hotel was a buzz with excited attendees and busy production staff. The Nicolita Show was set and ready to start at 7:30pm. Lights dimmed and the first look down the runway was a blue one piece from The Madeira Tropical Group. The blue print is of wooden panels while the gold braided straps were made to mimic rope, very clever. Models strutted down past flashing bulbs in bright Cuban inspired works of glossy spandex while polka-dotted over lay art shined for the invited guests. Rallying in the show bright burst of Red, Yellow and Greens took shape in the form of twisted bandeau tops and tied ‘no-pinch’ bottoms adorn with traditional ruffled fiesta sleeves.

The Nicolita Swimwear wear line started and was founded in 2005 by Designer, Nicole Di Rocco. This year’s collection was inspired by her Cuban Heritage and the concept of styling for the Latina or Curvy figure. Celebrating the more shapely body form is welcoming to all women, of all races. This was evident even in the casted models that were booked for this show in Miami. Models with pretty curves flaunted their happy figures with pride for what they look like and who they are.

Coming to a close of a great day under the tents, a celebration was forming at the Official After-Party in The Raleigh Hotel Penthouse! Nicole announced a special collaboration with SiTV had been filmed. As a dream come true, Di Rocco received the opportunity to reunite her parent’s with their homeland of Cuba; to do an on-location photo shoot for Nicolita Swimwear. Having been away from Cuba for after 49 years it was a heart-warming way for them to share with Di Rocco all the cultural heritage of her family’s roots. There The Designer comes to her own, learning the significance and greatness of being Cuban American. Stay tuned, the touching look back is set to debut on SiTV: November 7th, 2010. What a monumental way of coming back full circle

Fit Guide and Suggested Styles

Do you hate when your bikini bottoms dig into your hips? Have no fear, Nicolita NO PINCH FIT Cuban Style Bottoms are here!!

Hola! I'm Nicolita owner & designer Nicole Di Rocco. In this video I'll show you why and how we created our signature Nicolita Bottom fit.

Nicolita has one-of-kind swimwear styles that are carefully designed to flatter your figure. Say goodbye to those ill-fitting bikini bottoms and say hello to comfort and fit!

Below are a few of our most popular styles that were designed with YOUR hips in mind.

Welcome to the Nicolita Fitting Room!

I want to help you find the Perfect Fit Nicolita Style. Below I have created a Nicolita Swimwear Fit guide to match your curves with our swimwear options and styles. If you still have questions of which bikini or one piece style would look best with your body shape just Call 866-NICOLITA (866-642-6548)  Email hola@mynicolita, or Skype me @mynicolita.     

Over the last 13 years since I started Nicolita in 2003, I have worked with a lot of Nicolita clients on selecting the perfect swimsuit for them. I'm the first to admit that wearing a bikini or one piece swimsuit can be challenging for the majority of us. Even if you have a rockin' body, there are certain styles that work better on certain body shapes.

But I am a strong believer that there is the perfect swimsuit out there for you. And we have gone ahead and picked out some styles that are flattering for you!

Larger cup sizes (D cup and up)

Women with larger cup sizes are primarily looking for 2 things when trying on swimwear: coverage and support. While going up a size in the top can provide more coverage, some styles just won’t provide the coverage and support you may be looking for. Look for styles with side boning and molded cups to give you the support and coverage you desire, without the pinching of an underwire!

For support and coverage, check out:
Maria Knotty Wrap Twist Top

Molded Push Up Bikini Top


Smaller Bust

Have a smaller bust and want to create the illusion of a bigger chest? Styles with details like ruffles and molded cups will add volume and create cleavage!

For adding volume to a smaller chest, check out:

Haute Dot Bow Tie Bikini Tube Top

Rumba Ruffles Triangle Halter


Broad Shoulders

If you’re looking to tone down the appearance of broad shoulders, look for one-shoulder and detailed tops which will draw attention away from wide set shoulders. Deep V necklines will keep the attention focused on your chest and the low cut back will make your shoulders appear more narrow.

To elongate the torso, check out:

Rumba Ruffles One Shoulder Top

Neon Bloom Deep V One Piece


Not So Curvy

Looking to add more curve to that backside? Look for bottoms with backside details like ruffles, shirring, or our signature knotty bottom. These details add more curve to your bottom and create a more shapely bum. 

To add curves to a not so curvy bottom, check out:

Rumba Ruffles Forgiven Bottom

Signature Knotty Bottom


Tummy Control

We all have those days we would rather cover our midsection. To conceal your midriff while flattering your other assets, look for styles that have shirring throughout the midsection to camouflage any insecurities.

For tummy control, check out:

Deep V One Piece With Shirring

Noche Cha Cha High-Waisted Bottoms


More Coverage Overall

Trying to keep your skin out of the sun, or just desire to be more covered? Look for styles that provide more coverage without sacrificing style, like high-neck tops, high-waist bottoms, and one pieces!
