The Right Swimsuit For Your Body


Trends are all well and good but when it comes to swimwear, finding a style that flatters your body is of the utmost importance. Whether you want to accentuate your curves, hide your tummy or show off your booty, use this guide to zero in on the perfect swimsuit for you.


The RIGHT Swimsuit For Your Body

Belle Bustier Bikini



The beauty of a bustier is it works to support you in all the right places while also cinching your waist.

If you have broad shoulders, avoid excess material and opt for a triangle top with thin straps in a cross-back style.

Pleated or ruched fabric is a brilliant design element for camouflaging areas to which you don't want to draw extra attention.

If you're small on top and big on the bottom (pear shaped), try drawing the eyes up with a cool, cut-out halter suit.

Bettina Swimsuit


Agent Provocateur

A plunging neckline is particularly well-suited for anyone with a flat chest since girls with bigger breasts will find this silhouette synonymous with a wardrobe malfunction. Find a style with ruffles to create the illusion of volume.

It may sound counterintuitive, but less is more when it comes to selecting a swimsuit if you have a bigger bum. Trying to cover more of your seat with fabric only draws attention. String-tie bottoms are particularly great as they can be adjusted to fit perfectly.

Braided Bikini Top and High-Waisted Bottoms



Whether you've just had a baby, don't like your belly button or simply want to cover your abs, a chic high-waisted suit is your best bet.

If you're athletic, find a one-piece with spaghetti straps and an exposed back to show off your toned physique.
