How to Choose Swimwear to
Flatter your Figure
sort of bikini will suit your style?
important to know what to wear on the beach this summer,
or on your next trip to the sunshine, so that you can feel
body confident. Picking a style that's more than your
average string bikini is a good idea, as you can really
create a fantastic silhouette with just that bit more
fabric, shape and style.
- Grande - It can be tricky
finding swimming costumes to fit your longer torso, so shop in
specialised places like Long Tall Sally, or find suits
specifically cut in longer lengths. Even out your length, by
choosing a halterneck or plunge neck style. And don't forget
that you can wear bold colours and prints too!
- Petite - A
bikini in one simple colour will elongate your frame. Choose
the style of top depending on your bust size, those with a
larger chest should opt for a more fitted, supportive style,
whereas those with a small chest should consider string halter
necks and strapless styles.
- Pear - Choose a bikini in two
separate parts, so you can decide between different cuts and
style. Choose bottoms that come in a dark colour in a regular
cut (or a style with a small amount of fabric, shorts would not
be a good option for you). Choose a top that has a lot of
fabric, a halter or ruffle are some good ideas, as well as
having more colour and detailing, so the eye is drawn to your
smaller top half.
- Apple - Go
for a tankini or swimsuit that gives you great support for your
chest, look at online stores that have a special larger bust
size section. Draw the eye down to your slimmer bottom half by
selecting bottoms with a bit of ruching or drawstring
- Hourglass - The most elegant
one-piece swimsuits are definitely for you. Choose a style that
is correctly fitted will enhance your shape immediately, as
will halternecks and 50s style swimwear. If you have larger
bones, try a big print and colour, for those with smaller bones
go for more delicate prints and colours.
- Don't forget a hat and some sunscreen.
- Give your hair some sexy beach style by french braiding
whilst wet, and taking out once dry to reveal sexy
- Don't forget to pack a sarong or kaftan, they're an
absolute must for super celebrity style.
