While some of you can’t wait for summer to head to the beach and show off your perfect silhouette there is also the rest of us caught in a stressful situation, thinking how to hide our imperfections. Well, there’s nothing to really worry about as it all depends on what style swimsuit you choose. To find out which styles are preferable for your case check out our style guide to finding the perfect swimsuit for each body shape.
Pear Shape Body Type
You belong in this category if your hips and your tights are wider than the upper part of your body. Beloved celebs such as Beyonce and J. Lo show a great example of this body shape. The key to a perfect look lies on balancing your proportions. So anything that covers up a main part of your bottom half can work for you. As for the color and the prints a darker color should be chosen for the bottom part while a more vibrant hue and some abstract prints can be the best option to go for to distract attention from the lower part.
You definitely need more support. Opt for molded cups instead of the classic bathing suit style bras and avoid pieces that are embellished with ruffles or other designing details that focus attention on your upper half. Note that bras with underwire and adjustable strap are also a good fit to consider.
The top part of your body is comparably smaller than the lower part. The key to success of a beach look here lies on providing less support. So you should definitely stick with minimal coverage. Triangle tops work great for this case while bras that offer extra lift are also on the list of the best choices. It should be noted that bras with floral designs and colorful prints on are the best pieces to go for to accentuate your bust.
Athletic Body Shape
You basically have no curves you’re proportions are even. This means that you have to ”create” your curves by wearing the right bathing suit. Thus to get the desired effects, you can either stick with monokinis or wear two piece bathing suits with tie-side bikini. Also bold prints, ruffles and other embellishments are something to consider wearing to create the illusion of having curves.
In this case the best fashion trick that you can use is shirring. Also retro inspired swimsuits seem to be a great option for apple body shapes. Monokinis with distracting designing details on can also work as alternatives for apple shape body types.
Having insecurities thanks to your curves? Don’t worry as all you have to do is stick with the right bathing suit! The key to perfect beach look lies on knowing how to balance your proportions. The best way to do that is provide full coverage and bet on monokinis that have abstract distracting prints on the some parts. Colorblocking can also help to conceal your curves.
