Swimwear for your shape
There are lots of swimwear options to suit different body shapes. To help you choose the right shape for you, we have created this list of some of the different styles and sorts of body shapes they suit.
Ideal for: Toned Curves
The cut-out swimsuit shows off a toned body like nothing else. If you have a boyish shape, you need a defined waist to make this look work, so be careful.
Ideal for: A small bust
A wide bandeau emphasises a small chest and is great for balancing out a bigger behind. V-neck shape bandeaus and those with prints will further enhance and shape your small bust.
Ideal for: All figures
No longer used only to cover up, the one piece is fashion favourite that has a style to suit every shape. An hourglass figure looks great in retro cuts, while petite figures suit low necklines and halter-neck straps, and ranching covers up those intones tums.
Ideal for: Hiding muffin tops and untoned tummies
Stylish and far from frumpy, tankinis are an easy way to hide the bits you don’t want to be seen. Mix and match tops and bottoms to suit your shape.
Ideal for: Slim and boyish shapes
String style bikinis are usually quite skimpy which are perfect for showing off a slender body. The thin tie sides are great for making your legs look longer but make sure that you don’t pull the ties too tight to avoid making them look bigger than they actually are.
Ideal for: Toned, curvy behinds and sporty types
Cheeky boyleg shorts flatter and flaunt your best asset without being skimpy. Avoid boy leg shorts unless you are really toned. If you are not, try a cut that rises as it reaches your hip for a more flattering look.
Ideal for: A bigger bust
They give great support and with new fashionable styles, they are not as frumpy as they once were. You can’t go wrong with retro styles, polka dots and floral prints, or simply keep it timeless in black.
Ideal for: All figures
They enhance a smaller bust yet hold in a bigger chest, balance out bigger bottoms and show off shoulders. Petite figures can wear skimpier styles to enhance their chest but to-heavy women should go for halter necks with fuller coverage.
Skirts and Frills
Ideal for: Boyish shapes looking to add curves to their figure
Skirts and frills add curves because they make your waist look smaller than your bottom and hips. Bigger skirts and more frills create more curves so be careful not to over do it.
