Make a splash this summer in the most flattering suits of your shape. Here is your ultimate Swimsuit Guide for different body types
THE PEAR SHAPE
You're curvy at the hips and thighs and smaller on top. Your hips don't lie. Embrace your booty with a bikini that hits right at the hips.
What to look for: The key to the perfect swimsuit is balancing your proportions and getting the coverage you need for your bottom half.
THE BIG BUST
Ample cleavage; you're chesty and require more support up top. Girls with apple shaped bodies are busty with narrower hips. Give emphasize to your upper body. Make your assets look their best. Plain bottom with little details will balance everything out.
What to look for: If you're more well-endowed on top, then support is key. Opt for suits with underwire or molded cups to give the girls the support they need.
Avoid: Avoid ruffles or embellishments up top if you're hoping to minimize the focus on your chest. Stay away from triangle tops or any kind of skimpy bikini tops. We understand that you want to minimize tan lines, but these styles just don’t look right, and you have a chance of falling out and embarrassing yourself.
THE SMALL BUST
Proportionally, you're smaller on top with an A or B cup
What to look for: A smaller chest requires less support, so you can look for styles with more minimal coverage or embellished detailing, bows, and patterns to create the illusion of a larger chest.
If you're curvy goddess, your waist is the smallest part of your body and your chest and hip curve outwards. Emphasize your curvy shapes with side cut out swimsuit and Top and bottom that hits at the waist.
What to look for: For curvy frames, the key is to highlight your curves while providing enough support and coverage. If you're not keen on exaggerating your curves, then steer clear of monokinis or string bikinis with thicker ties, which can accentuate your widest areas.
You're more straight up and down and have fewer curves.
Banana Shaped bodies are more or less the same width from chest to hips with minimal curve. Bustier and cute printed Type of one piece swimsuit is perfectly suit this body type. For two piece ruffles will give fun accents and give the illusion of curves.
What to look for: The name of the game is playing up your curves with styles that flaunt your frame. Suits with less coverage help to create the illusion of a shapelier figure.
Seek Out: Halter styles, which minimize broad shoulders, are a great pick if you have an athletic body type. Swimsuits that accentuate the waist—such as belted suits or monokinis with the sides cut out—are also perfect because these styles will give you more of an hour-glass figure. For bottoms, look for high-cut styles that will make your legs look longer.
Avoid: Stay away from solid one-pieces and overly plain or understated styles. You’ll look best in embellished, feminine suits that emphasize your curves.
