1. Pear Shape

You have a pear-shaped body type if you’re curvier at the hips and thighs and smaller on top from the waist up. What you want would be swimwear styles that balances your proportion by drawing away attention from your hips and elongating your legs for a slim-effect.

# Tip 1: Accentuate your curves! Opt for boy cut or high waisted bikini bottom for a flattering fit with extra bottom coverage.

2. Apple Shape

Apple, or usually known as top heavy body, your body have a wide torso, broad shoulders with a full bust, waist and upper back. Here are the best bikinis and swimsuits for that body shape.

 

Look for a style that supports your chest with better support for the heavier top. Select swimwear that visually separates it from your stomach; ruching and tummy control offers subtle concealment.

 

# Tip 1: Select styles that cover your troubled tummy area with flared out design or tummy control features

# Tip 2: For those without the tummy issue, prance around in bikinis tops with undercup support or halter neck cutting also features more support for the heavier top.

# Tip 3: Choose Empire-Waist Styles. The design lifts the eye above your stomach and makes your middle look smaller.

# Tip 4: Go Deep. A deep neckline in a bathing suit can generate a vertical accent drawing the eye up and down, accentuating the bust and elongating the body.

 3. The Hourglass shape

 

If your bust and hips are nicely proportioned and you tend to have a smaller mid-section, chances are you’re a classic hourglass. And the good news? Your shape is perfect for bikinis.

 

#Tip 1: Bikinis are oh-so-perfect for hourglass shapes as it draws the eye to your slimmest area – your waist

# Tip 2: Select Monokinis that enhances your silhouette especially at the waistline, either with prints, or back tie designs which you can tighten for a smaller waist. Linear highlights across the waist, similar to that in Styra Monokini and Bali Weekend Monokini works perfectly!

    4. The Banana Shape

Are you lean with shoulder, waistline and hip measuring almost the same? If yes, Banana is your body shape.

You’ll need swimsuit styles that play on optical illusion to highlight your assets to hit all the right style notes.

 

# Tip 1: The answer to all your swimsuit problems: Ruffles! By having ruffle accents on your bikini top, attention is not only diverted away from your boyish frame, it also draws gazes towards your effeminate elegance.
