With the weather getting warmer and the summer season approaching, going on holiday is a must. However, to some, this means wearing a swimsuit and dreaded experience of exposing our bodies. We become paranoid that the extra cake and holiday weight will show, but fear not Estilistas readers, we will help you look good! We have broken down each body type and picked the perfect swimsuit for you! Please keep in mind the labels of these body types are for ease and a better understanding of shapes and are in no way better than each other! At Estilistas we understand not everyone fits the standard body shape and size, and these recommendations are purely for general guidance. Don’t forget to tag us on Instagram with your picks from your holiday and swimsuit attire. We love to see our readers’ posts.
For those that struggle with smaller busts, we don’t want you to feel stuck with ruffles up-top. We want you to embrace your smaller cups and be bold with a plunging neckline. This will be flattering to your body and allow for less attention on your upper half and add visual interest more towards your middle area. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about support or extra coverage! We recommend this one by Missguided that will make all of your bustier friends jealous.
If sexy isn’t your thing, this adorable Ted Baker swimsuit will provide more coverage and visual interest on top. The bandeau top is will prevent tan lines and the stripes design on top creates an illusion of a full bust, and hurry! it is half price now!
You want to create the illusion of curves! Don’t be discouraged, as curves can easily be added through wraps, ruffles, and a little help from a padded swimsuit. We love this ruffled one piece from Pinko that has contrasting colors and a beautiful ruffle design that compliments your body type!
If you’re leaner or want to accentuate the curves you do have, a high-waisted suit bottom from Pistol Panties draws attention to the smaller part of your body! The padded halter style top completes the look, and you will feel summer ready in no time!
With an hourglass figure, you can wear a variety of styles and looks. However, more options can be overwhelming and the main thing to focus on with swimwear is for the hourglass shape is the fit. With curves on top and bottom, ensuring the swimsuit fits both areas is important! If you want a little more curve coverage while still showing off your body, this tankini by Miraclesuit is beautiful and more modest. It is flattering at the neck, waist, and you won’t feel like you will pop out playing volleyball or lounging by the pool.
Warning! This adorable two-piece will have some odd tan lines but will be a hit at the beach! This Milanoo floral suit is edgier with cutout straps on the top and bottom while still being comfortable and figure flattering.
If you’re bustier on top with broader shoulders, you might feel limited to hard underwire tops that cause neck pain and shoulder ache. While support is important for a swimsuit, don’t feel limited by your shape. This Kenneth Cole one piece in navy puts a fun spin on the halter top. The strips add visual interest to your neck and torso and take away the focus from your shoulders. You will have bust support and some fun tan lines!
If you’re feeling a little bolder, this bright color block two-piece from Milanoo is perfect. The high waisted bottoms balance out the width of your shoulders but the top is still supportive and functional.
