Triangle Body Type - Fabulously full hips with a smaller bust? - Consider drawing all eyes upwards with a swimsuit top featuring a fun pattern or a use a lighter, brighter color to give you the appearance of being a little more “blessed” in the bust. Like separates instead? Pair your eye-catching top with a darker-colored bottom to play up/down those magnificent curves. Feel great wearing one of our hip hiding swim dresses or suit up in a two-piece with a skirt. Mix, match, and have some fun!
Hourglass Body Type – Curvaceous hips and shoulders are balanced out by a defined waist. You probably think you can’t pull off anything too flashy, right? Wrong! Flaunt your curves with eye-catching all-over prints and bright colors. Not feeling that bold yet? You can do a lot by just looking for a suit with patterns designed to accentuate your smaller waist. There are a lot of options out there for curves like yours!
Inverted Triangle Body Type – A fuller top tapers into narrower hips. First things first – make sure the “girls” are taken care of. Keep bust support in mind by looking for swim tops with underwire bras or soft-cup bras with wide elastic bands. Another option is wear your own bra style tops so that you can handle the support with the suit handles the style! The name of the game for you is balance. A two-piece is perfect, allowing you to highlight the hips while de-emphasizing your top half. Try a flirty ruffled skirt or shorts, and add a fun, square-neck top that narrows the shoulders. So many options, such a short summer!
Rectangle Body Type – Equal proportions through the shoulders, waist and hips. Don’t think being “straight up and down” keeps you from looking fabulous in the pool! You get to have a lot of fun with detailing. Consider a suit with lettuce leaf edging around the waist, or a ruffle trim. Look for ways to highlight your waist, such as a surplice wrap with a crossover design. Go bold with diagonal stripes or a wild all over print. Color blocking on the sides also play to your strengths.So many swimsuit possibilities, you won’t be able to choose just one!
Circle Body Type – Slimmer through the shoulders and hips, with a more voluptuous waistline. Let’s face it – most of us hate our tummies. The trick is to distract the eye. Bring attention up top with flirty detailing in a halter or V-neck. If you’re looking for a little more coverage in the middle (and really, who isn’t?), try a shirred top. Other options are ones with banding or a drawstring at the bottom to create a looser fit in the waist. Yes, there is a perfect suit for you!
