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 fade away, as our dyes soak deep into the fabric, leaving a strong, permanent 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 fade 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 stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

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

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.

  • GSM ICON

    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric, and sewn into finished products, which gives a better finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns, but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing 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 fulfillment.
