How to Choose the Perfect Swimwear for Your Body Type

Posted: May 15 2015 by Lookbook Store

Beach season is almost upon us. And we're determined to resolve any fears you might have about donning a swimsuit , let alone a pair of bikini,  in public.

Yes, anyone -- and we mean anyone -- can wear swimsuits regardless of you what your body shape looks like. We may not be busty like Kate Upton or curvy like Candice Swanepoel, but we can still ooze with hotness like they do every time.

The secret?

Strutting your stuff in the right kind of swimsuit and a boat load of confidence.

So be the bronze goddess like you're destined to be with this nifty guide to choosing the right swimwear for your figure.

 

The Curvy Charmer

If you're full through and through with a full bust, thighs, butt and hips, then choose pieces that'll accentuate your curves while providing the right amount of coverage and support.

However, if you're still a bit hesitant to exaggerate your natural curves, go for pieces that have asymmetric cuts and retro fittings. Boxy halter tops as well as those that are color blocked can also help highlight your curvy silhouette.

The Perfect Pear

If you're lacking in the upper part but curvy in your bottom half, then the trick is to balance them out. Opt for eye-catching bikini tops, especially with plunging necklines,  to draw eyes away from your waist down. And for bottoms, choose those with thin bands and straps so as not to call attention to that area.

The Busty Babe

 If you're upper half is well-endowed, then all you need is support. So opt for swimsuits that are equipped with molded cups and underwires.  Steer clear from falbala and fringed tops to minimize focus.

Also, tops with higher backs, such as racerback, can help keep the girls up when your strutting down the beach shore.

The Small Siren

If you're lacking a bit in the chest, don't feel bad. Small-chested women can get away with almost any kind of bikini tops. So go ahead and splurge on pieces with cute ruffles, bold prints, attention-getting embellishments. You can even opt for strapless ones if you like.

To give your girls extra lift, go for padded and push-up cups as well as halter tops.

The Tummy Temptress

If you're body is shaped like an apple, which tends to be heavy in the middle, then smoothen your tummy with high-waisted bikini bottoms, monokinis and tankinis. Suits with wrap-style trims can also be flattering to the figure.  So as shirred swimsuits as they can hide the unflattering bulge.

The Sporty Seductress

If you're lacking curves, don't fret. Playing them  the right way is the name of the game. Splurge  on pieces that have minimal coverage as they can create an illusion of a shapely silhouette. Monokinis with side cutouts can also create curves like you were naturally born with them.

More than that, bottoms with smaller cuts can create the illusion of a full derriere, giving you enough reasons to show off your svelte figure.
