Design your own bandeau and custom swimwear

When it comes to choosing the right swimwear, a standard bikini or swimming costume might not always be your favourite style. We've created an exclusive bandeau for situations like this. So much more than a personalised bikini top, this beautiful, handmade bandeau can be worn with bikini bottoms, to create a funky swimsuit or why not make it part of your wardrobe and style it up as a custom crop top? Made from our supportive and high-quality Lycra fabrics, our designer bandeau top is a brilliant addition to your custom swimwear collection.

Lycra matt fabric

Slinky Matt Lycra

Soft and smooth with a silky handle, our Slinky Matt Lycra gives support and form and dries very quickly, making this the perfect swimwear fabric. Our custom printed swimwear fabric has a stark white base tone, making it perfect for printing on. Your designs will look bold and striking with great colour intensity.

Lycra soft sheen option

Lycra Soft Sheen

Lycra Soft Sheen has a pretty, shimmering face, which adds a fashion element. It is also stretchy and form-fitting, with slightly less support than Slinky Matt Lycra. Your designs won't peel away, as our dyes soak deep into the fabric, leaving a strong, lasting print. Colours look vibrant on the stark base colour.

Beautiful Customised Bandeau Bikini Tops Designed By You

Why go for a standard bandeau top, that can be picked up from any store, when you can design your own bikini online? Printed, cut, sewn and made to order in-house, our bandeau will give your summer look personality and unique style. Designed by you, made by us with next day delivery available. If you have trouble finding your perfect size, then don't worry: at Contrado, size is never an issue. We make all of our unique Bandeau Tops to order, from sizes ranging from a UK 6 to a UK 32, so if you are looking for petite bikini tops or plus size bikini tops, then you can create them easily with us.


Your label, your brand

Brand your bandeau, with our custom printed labels. We’ve left space on the elasticated hem of your bandeau that you can customise with your logo or brand name. Because we make every bandeau from scratch, you can even personalise with the name of your recipient, or a personalised message. Unlike a traditional label, this printed label won’t irritate the skin or rub off with washing.

Frequently asked questions:

Does the bandeau provide support?

Our personalised bandeau top is made from a choice of 2 Lycra fabrics. If you are looking for a more supportive crop top, then we suggest using the Slinky Matt Lycra fabric, which is a firm favourite for custom sportswear and swimwear. The slinky drape and firm resistance, combined with its highly elastic nature, does help make our designer bandeau quite supportive, especially considering that there is no underwiring.

How can I style this top as swimwear?

As well as making a gorgeous customised boob tube or crop top, our bespoke bandeau makes a fun and sexy bikini top. As it can be made from Slinky Matt Lycra, it will dry relatively fast and provide support. You can team it with our Customised Hot Pants or Custom Bikini Bottoms, to create a range of flirty looks, which are perfect for swimwear. Best of all, as the bandeau is strapless, so you won't get any annoying tan lines.

What is the fit of the bandeau top like?

Both the Lycra Soft Sheen and the Slinky Matt Lycra fabric options fit beautifully on the body. The fit is secure and very comfortable. There is a strip of woven elastic sewn into the top and bottom hem of the printed tube top, which provides support and a form-fitting finish. For additional comfort, there is a mesh layer sewn into the lining, which gives an additional layer of comforting support.

Print Guideline

    • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

      What's the best resolution to print in?

      We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image. 

  • scaling-Print Guideline Icon

    How will my image scale?

    When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)

  • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

    Maximum dimensions

    For most of our fabrics, there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10m max to visualise the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) and then you can order as much as you'd like, with a built-in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.

  • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

    Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?

    Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or borders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 5mm white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail, jpeg is fine.

  • Barcode Icon

    Why is there a barcode inside my clothing?

    Due to our internal processes here at Contrado, there will be a barcode printed on your garment. This is inside the clothing and will not affect your design. It is usually found towards the bottom.

  • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

    What is the situation with material shrinkage?

    Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary. As everything we produce is handmade to order, there may be a slight variance in the measurements.

  • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

    Can I print on both sides of the fabric?

    We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as many fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.

  • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

    Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them as you do with the normal fabric labels?

    At the moment our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now, this is the best choice. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into labels.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are printed using water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.
