What is the most flattering swimwear for your body shape?

The type of bikini that complements your body depends on your body shape. Here are some basic recommendations to help you select the best swimwear for your body figure:

  • Hourglass body shape: Pick a bikini that draws attention to your waistline, string bikinis can showcase your curves and highlight your waist. Also, one-piece swimsuits can accentuate your curves. When opting for a swimsuit, we recommend one with a low-cut neckline and a cinched waist. There are no bikini types to avoid when you have an hourglass shape, just try to avoid mismatched patterns, colors and styles that can throw the bikini top and bottom out of harmony.

  • Pear-shaped body: Go for a bikini with a plain bottom and a patterned or embellished top. This will balance out your dimensions and highlight your upper body. Moreover, high-waisted bikini bottoms can help balance out wider hips and elongate the legs.

  • Apple-shaped body: Choose a bikini with a high-waisted bottom or a bikini with a pleated top if your body has an apple form and you want to create the illusion of a smaller waistline. Look for bikini tops that provide support and lift for your bust such as halter tops, underwire tops, and tops with adjustable straps. Darker colors and one-piece swimsuits with strategic cutouts are also good option for apple-shaped bodies.

  • Athletic body: If you have an athletic figure, go for a bikini with a striking design or one with frills or ruffles. This will add volume to your body and it will give you a more feminine shape. Moreover, one-shoulder bikinis are a trendy and flattering option for athletic body types.

  • Straight body shape: Pick a triangle-top bikini or a bikini with frills or other decorations if your body is straight and you want to add curves to your figure.

Furthermore, halter tops are probably the most comfortable option if you have a big bust.

Ultimately, the most important thing is to choose a bikini that makes you feel confident and comforable in. All body shapes are beautiful, don't be afraid to try out with different styles until you find the one that works best for you.
