Summer Swimwear For Your Figure Type
Discover your shape’s best buys with these flattery tips.
By and large this season, it appears that designers are keeping the ‘real girl’ in mind, offering designs that are both functional and wearable. When choosing a swimsuit, you should pick one that is not only on-trend this year, but also one that highlights your curves right, and expresses you.
If you have athletic thighs
Accentuate your waistline and toned torso. A midrise waistline directs the focus on one’s waist rather than their legs. Plus, you can move around in bottoms like these!
If you’ve got a booty
If your more prominent on the bottom your two-piece bathing suits can assure a better fit, you can try wearing high-waisted bottoms, as they conceal a more full but area and hides love handles. Also, go barer on top; one’s cleavage draws eyes up. Another beneficial way to highlight attention away from your booty is by mixing and matching your bikini top and bottom. You can try wearing something more neutral on the bottom, and a metallic or floral on the head!
Pear Shape / Small Bust
Flat chested? Choose tops that add more volume, such as ones with bows, ruffles or fringe. You can also use vintage cupped styles with padding to create curves.
Top Heavy / Busty
For busty women, it's all about the right straps and support. Underwire halters do this the best. You can also wear a teeny bottom to show off your legs, or use ruffles/bows to your advantage by conversely adding them to the bottom to balance your hips with your bust.
If you’re plus-size
Look for bathing suits with the structure where you need it most, such as one that gives some tummy control. Also, embrace the stripe trend this season by wearing slimming horizontal stripes.
Curvy / Fuller Figure
If you have an hourglass body, then show off your awesome curves! Embrace the vintage trend, using it to accentuate rather than try and hide your curves. Or, wear a one-piece crochet suit. It’s sexy but covers what you need it too.
