It’s that time of the year where so many people go on their mid-year vacation and if you’re heading to a beach very soon, we’re pretty positive you’ll be packing a bikini or two. But before you do so, or if you’re having problems selecting one that best suits your body shape, here are some simple pointers to help you shop for the right swimsuit.
1. Wide hips
If your shoulders are narrower than your hips, this body type is often referred to as triangle or pear shape.
To create a more flattering silhouette, opt for high waist bikini pants to show off your waistline. If you’re going for a one piece, a high waist, low plunge design will draw attention to your neckline, creating a sleeker frame. At all cost, avoid boy shorts as this will make your hips look wider.
2. If you have big boobs
The most important thing for well endowed girls to remember is support. For bikinis, you want to invest in a piece that has a) wide or thick straps and b) underwired cups. The former ensures that everything is held in place and gives you the right support while the latter prevents your girls from looking saggy. Otherwise, a one piece suit with a halter neck or wide straps will work too. You’ll want to avoid string bikinis as they don’t offer maximum support. Nobody wants a wardrobe malfunction right?
3. If you have small boobs
Girls with a modest chest who want to create an illusion of a fuller bust can try a bustier bikini top. Bustier bikini tops are usually moulded, so this provides shape. Fringe, ruffles or layers are great qualities to have in a bikini top for those who want a bit of lift. You can pull off string bikinis rather effortless but always make sure to get the right size, or else, it will appear unflattering.
If your shoulders and hips are at the same width and you have an itty bitty waist, the best type of swimwear that will highlight your much sought after silhouette are vintage designs. Whether it’s a high waist bikini with a retro print or one piece halter swimsuit, vintage designs will accentuate your shape. Plus, who doesn’t want to look like Marilyn Monroe or Brigitte Bardot?
If you have an athletic frame, triangle bikinis or high cut bottoms will suit you just fine. Triangle tops create a curvy illusion but don’t limit yourself to solid colours. Have fun with prints and patterns or asymmetrical cuts as these will draw attention away from your angular or boxy figure.
And there you have it! Now that you know how to select the best swimwear to suit your figure, the only thing left is to wear your pieces with confidence and embrace your figure!
