Everyone wants to look their best when they hit the beach or pool. Before you set out, you want to make sure that your swimsuit fits well and is flattering to your figure.
The good news is that no matter what your shape, there is a swimsuit that’s just right for you!
The first step to choosing the best swimsuit is to know your body-type. Here are some suggestions to help you get started.
If you have a larger bottom, you can minimize it with a swimsuit bottom that has a fuller fit, like a swimming skirt. It hides your bottom and adds a bit of style and flare to the suit, and your look.
Suggested slimming swimwear:
The best swimming suits will be those with wide straps and well designed, solid cups. This will evenly distribute the weight of the breasts to keep straps from digging into the shoulders and provide support needed.
Suggested swimsuits for a large bust:
The thighs are a problem area, even for women who aren’t overweight. If you feel self-conscious about your thighs, you might want to opt for a flirty skirted bottom. Also, wearing a bottom that sits high up on the leg, a higher leg cut, can make your legs appear longer and leaner.
Suggested swim skirts for heavy legs:
Most women fret about their belly fat and muffin top (myself included!). A one-piece swimsuit in a dark color is slenderizing. If you prefer a two-piece swimsuit, choose a “tankini” which is a two-piece suit with a longer top. This gives you the freedom of a two-piece but still covers your belly. There are also suits with built in tummy panels and suits that have gathering through the tummy to disguise a thicker waist.
Suggested swimming suits for belly bulge:
Built-in padding will help fill out a small bust and extra trim and gathered fabric will fool the eye. Avoid plunging necklines and stick to higher necklines that draw attention away by enhancing other attributes.
Suggested swimsuits for a small bust:
Now that you know what your perfect swimsuit looks like, where are you headed this summer? Whether you’re off to the beach or the pool, look your best in a swimsuit that fits and flatters your unique body type.
