SWIMWEAR STYLES TO FLATTER YOUR FIGURE SHAPE

SWIMWEAR STYLES TO FLATTER YOUR FIGURE SHAPE

We all want our swimwear to look amazing so that we can be body confident in a swimsuit. Everyone has different proportions and body shapes so it can be difficult to find the best kind of swimwear to show off your figure. To help you feel your best we have put together a little guide to learn which body type you are and what style suits will help you strut your stuff this summer with confidence!  

body shapes

Rectangle

  • Your hips, waistline and shoulders have about the same width.
  • Rectangles gain weight evenly, but may gain some more through the upper back or neck.
  • You have rather straight shoulders.
  • Your buttocks are flat.
  • You have an athletic build and a small bust-line.

Athletic ladies are straight up and down with smaller busts. The best swimwear will enhance your curves and accentuate your hips and bust.

Look for:

  • Cut out details
  • Less coverage
  • Asymmetrical styles
  • Multiple Side straps
  • Underwire top
  • Butt Scrunch
