3 Bikinis that are Perfect for Your Body Shape

7 July 2014

The Hourglass Shape

An hourglass figure is something to made the most of, regardless of your size or weight.

If you're happy with your weight and don't have anything to conceal, choose a bikini with an eye-catching print. If you fancy a bit of a challenge and want to give your beach outfit a vintage feel, choose a high waisted bikini bottom with a matching bra.

If you want your hips/thighs to look smaller, then choose a bikini bottom in a plain colour with strings or more slender straps to the side, which will elongate your legs and slim your curves.

If you want to conceal your tummy, try a stylish swimsuit with a sexy neckline and back.

The Apple Shape

The key here is to show off your amazing legs and upper body.

A vertical striped swimsuit will elongate your torso and draw attention to your legs and décolletage.

A cut-out swimsuit with a deep plunge, is the perfect way to be sexy without overdoing it. This will make a small torso look amazing while the cut-out will create curves.

A halter neck bikini is great for those who don't like to hide their tummy. Choose one with a high bottom that won't make your tummy look too exposed.

The Athletic Shape

This shape can get away with almost anything. Ruffles, prints, bright colours, anything is allowed.

For a small bust, create the impression of a fuller bust by adding ruffles and prints to your top half.

A cut-out bikini is perfect for a bigger bust and to add some curves to your athletic shape.

If you want to draw attention to your booty then, this Gingham Frill bikini is perfect for you.

The Pear Shape

If you want to conceal your bottom half, the best way to do this is to draw all the attention to your top half. Easy right?

Your best choice is to wear simple prints or neutral colours in the bottom half and go crazy with prints and bright colours for the top half.
