How to Choose the Perfect Swimsuit for Your Body Shape?

There is way too much information out there telling us what we can and can’t wear, with a plethora of reasons why. However, this is usually misguided advice that doesn’t concentrate on what’s really important: how it fits you and how it makes you feel. Every woman deserves to feel sexy in the sun, so we’ve put together a guide so you will choose the perfect swimsuit for your body shape this season.

1.Small chest

If you’ve got a small chest, it will be easier for you to wear string bikinis and interesting swimwear designs. If you’re looking to enhance the look of your chest, try a design with ruffles or embellishments on the top.

2. Full chest

If you have a fuller chest, you will have to steer clear of unstructured and unsupported designs. Try swimwear that comes in cup sizes with thick, supportive straps made from good quality material.

3. Broad shoulders

For top-heavy, broad shouldered builds, try wearing a solid-colored full piece with printed panels along the side. This is not only is a flattering design, but it gives off the look of an hourglass figure, evening out a boxy upper body.

4. Little butt

Another body type where embellishments and frills come in handy, these designs on a smaller behind will create the illusion of curves. Loud prints, bright colors and interesting textures are also a great option for this body type.

5. Larger butt

Unless you want a small amount of coverage, larger butts are going to need more material to cover them. Thus, string bikinis and Brazilian style bottoms are probably going to become a source of frustration as they’re constantly misplaced. Opt for solid-colored bottoms and printed tops, to even out the attention placed on areas of your body.

6. Curvy

If you’ve got a curvier figure, or perhaps you just aren’t the greatest fan of your stomach, try working in a high waist bikini bottom into your swimwear rotation. A good quality, well-paneled high waist bikini bottom can work wonders – just make sure it extends above your belly button to prevent a muffin top.

7. Athletic

If you’ve got an athletic body with small hips, try designs with cups, padding and ruffles to give off the illusion of curves.

8. Short legs

With the modern swimwear trend lending itself to the high cut bikini bottoms of the ‘80s, people with short legs can rejoice! If you’ve got smaller pins, go for suits with high cuts in the bikini bottoms to elongate.

9. Maternity

Incorporating a pre- or post-baby bump is easier than you think! Since you won’t want anything too tight around your torso, it’s best to look for tankinis and one pieces, providing comfortability, sun protection and wiggle room for your growing or deflating belly.

10. Sensitive skin

Do you get sunburnt after mere minutes outside? Never fear, you can still enjoy the outdoors and protect your precious skin. If you have sensitive skin, it’s a good idea to consider a rash shirt or cover up. Rashies aren’t just for surfers anymore, now coming in a variety of fun, eye-catching prints.
