While no one likes the end of the summer season, we always like to find a reason to celebrate: summer sales! And what better time to stock up on swimsuits that you know both flatter your figure and your checking account? So read on and find out the best swimsuit for your body type! (and check out our Pool Party Dress Code guide if you need some more tips!)
There are few pieces of clothing that a woman agonizes over more than a bathing suit. As women, we tend to single out parts of our body we wish we could change. Regardless of whatever “body type” category you put yourself in (tall, short, curvy, thin, athletic, etc) every woman wants to look her best when she’s soaking up the sun.
Finding the Best Swimsuit for your Body Type!
Your Body Type: Broad Shoulders
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: Suits that have a detailed paneling to give an illusion of a more balanced, hourglass silhouette. An asymmetrical neckline, like a one shoulder suit, draws the eye away, rather than straight across your shoulders.
If you want to show off your broad shoulders, an athletic cut bikini top or standard triangle bikini will also do the trick! This also works for an overall athletic build.
Your Body Type: Small Bust
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: Suits that have ruffles, embellishments and/or padding that help give the illusion of a bigger bust.
Your Body Type: Large Bust
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: Suits with lots of support! Underwire, thicker straps, and double stitched bands will flatter your chest and make you feel comfortable.
Your Body Type: Smaller Booty
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: Suits with a ruffle and embellishment on the rear end. Loud prints and bright colors also distract from a smaller behind, as well as showing a little more cheek!
Your Body Type: Fuller Booty
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: Suits with solid bottoms and a more detailed top. String bikinis often aren’t flattering on your bottom half, and we want to avoid having to adjust your suit for more coverage.
Your Body Type: Full Hips/Thighs
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: A small pattern or solid color, as well as boy shorts or a skirted bottom. These will cover and flatter any areas you may be self-conscious about!
Your Body Type: Short Torso
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: Suits that draw the eye up and away from your midsection. Varying types of halter tops are great for this, as well as low rise bottoms.
Your Body Type: A Tummy
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: One-pieces that draw attention away from any insecurities you have about your midsection! We recommend a plunging neckline, ruching detail around your midsection, or a peplum suit; all are very flattering.
Your Body Type: Love Handles
The Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type: High waisted suits! These are very trendy right now, and give the illusion of an elongated torso and legs. Just make sure there is enough to come up and over your hips to the waist to avoid a muffin top.
