Wearing the right swimsuit for your body type is the key to making you feel confident on the beach.
Here are our pointers for finding the perfect beachwear.
Your Body Type: Curvy on Top
Women with this body type often feel like they are showing too much. Beat this insecurity by finding a bikini top with good bust support. Go for one with thick straps or even bra-like cups “ they’ll leave you feeling sexy but with great coverage. Boy cut bottoms in a dramatic colour are another great way to balance your body’s proportions.
Your Body Type: Curvy on the Bottom
Your slight hourglass shape is like that of a Greek goddess, so show it off! Bring some attention to your upper half with a wide-neckline bikini top in a gorgeous pattern. Paired with a solid coloured bottom, like black or navy, this combo will highlight your womanly figure in a flattering and flirty way.
Your Body Type: Boyish
So you’ve got no curves? Doesn’t mean you can’t look feminine in your beachwear. Opt for a halter bikini top with thin straps – both features will create a bit of cleavage and draw attention to your face. Have some fun with your beachwear and choose a suit in a bold pattern. Large prints will give the illusion of a bigger bust and curvier hips.
Your Body Type: Long & Lean
These lucky ladies have the fortune of being able to pull off just about any suit. A halter-top will accentuate your elegant shoulders, while a ruffled bottom will give some attention to your hips and long legs. Up for a daring trend? Sport a cut-out swimsuit in a classic shade for days on the beach or by the pool.
