Shopping for a swimsuit can (and should!) be fun! The right suit for your body will show off not only your own personal style, but also flatter your silhouette. Whether you plan to be poolside or beachside, let this be your guide to shopping effortlessly for a suit that makes you feel like a supermodel.
Draw attention to your neckline with a v-neck cut. As your middle is your largest measurement, look for a suit with ruching in the center and/or flattering side details. Ruching blurs the line of your silhouette and side detailing draws the eye to make you appear slimmer.
Sport a sportswear-inspired suit to show off your body’s definition! Ring-top bandeaus are the perfect way to add femininity to your curves without sacrificing the natural lines of your body.
Balance out a wide bum perfectly with a bandeau on top. Horizontal lines drawn by strapless bandeaus create an illusion of width on top, making your middle appear slimmer and your bottom more proportional.
If you’re wider on top, choose skirted bottoms with frills, tiers, or ruffles. This will not only balance you out on top, but also make you feel like you have a curvier bum!
Now is the time to get girly! Choose a suit with frills or ruffles to make your curves pop. A structured sweetheart neckline in a solid color will create the appearance of a curvy top and draw attention from the straight line of your body.
If your hips and chest are proportional and your waist is super slim, try a color blocked suit with cutouts. Pick one area of your body to focus on and find a suit with a cutout that spotlights that particular area.
What if you’re…
The key is to find a top with underwire and adjustable straps. Wider waistbands on bottom will also make you look more proportional.
Choose a suit that is flowy on top. Fringe, ruffles, and draping are all perfect ways to make you look a little fuller on top.
Blessed with Curves?
Ruched bodices, body hugging styles, and sweetheart necklines will give those curves some structure.
String bikinis were made just for you! Those adjustable strings ensure that your suit fits perfectly.
A high-waisted swimsuit will make your waist appear higher set and make your legs appear longer.
Lengthen that torso with an x-shaped center. A low, ruched waistband will also make you look longer.
