DIFFERENT BODY SHAPES:

Your shape––where you naturally distribute weight–determines which swimsuit will look best on you.

  • Pear shape: If your hips are significantly wider than both your waist and bust, you're probably a pear.
  • Apple shape: If your waist is significantly wider than your hips, and equal to or nearly as wide as your bust, you might be an apple.
  • Hourglass shape: If your bust and hips are about the same width, but your waist is significantly smaller, you're a classic hourglass.
  • Straight (also known as ruler or banana shape): If you're thin all around, with no significant difference between your hips, waist and bust, you're a straight shape

STEP 1:

Know your body type. 

STEP 2:

Prepare yourself by taking care of any necessary hair removal. 

STEP 3:

Choose colors and fabrics that will highlight your best features and downplay your less-loved parts. The secret to a good swimsuit is drawing the eye to the most flattering parts of your figure; this will help you to feel more comfortable as well as looking your best. 

To highlight a feature you like, use a bright color or pattern.

To hide something you don't like, use a solid color.

If you have pale skin, use black or deep jewel tones, such as dark purple, navy, and maroon.

If you have dark skin, bright colors can actually be more flattering and help hide what you don't like.

To add volume (such as to the bust or hips), choose a piece with ruffles in that area.

To hide volume (such as on the waist), use shirred or ruched fabric.

Don't be afraid to buy separates that don't match perfectly! Say you want to highlight your bust but draw attention away from your hips. You might buy a bikini top in a bright solid or pattern, and a bottom that's a dark black, blue or brown (depending on the top)

STEP 4:

Select the right cut. 

  • A one-piece will hide your waist. 
  • A 1940s-style, bathing-beauty bottom that's high-waisted can also help hide a waist. Go with a dark color. 
  • A tankini will highlight your waist, because it draws the eye to the section of skin that's showing. This is best if you love your waist but not so much your hips or bust.
  • Boyshorts make your hips look wider, regardless of color. If you have a large bust and want the hips to match for a classic hourglass shape, choose boyshorts. However, be aware that this style can feel uncomfortable for some women, so be certain of fit before you purchase anything.
  • High-cut bikini bottoms make legs look longer. If you're short, or you're long in the torso, this is a good selection.
  • Halter tops draw attention to the bust
  • Tie-front bikini tops draw the eye to the bust, as well as pulling the breasts closer to one another, effectively making them look larger. If you have small breasts and want them to look larger, this might be a good fit.
  • For a large bust, look for a straight across cut at the top of your swimsuit with wide set straps to minimize your bust. Try a bikini top with an underwire and a thick chest band for extra support. A thick chest band will prevent jiggling so that the bra stays where it should be and you can't fall out.
