Are you an apple? Apple-shaped women usually have large breasts, wide shoulders, narrow hips with slim thighs and an undefined waist. Before you assume this describes a dowdy body, picture Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tyra Banks and Elizabeth Hurley. All three are apple-shapes.
If you have an apple-shaped body, you've probably experienced some challenges selecting a flattering swimsuit. The trick to finding a great swimsuit for you comes from drawing the eye to the parts of your body you want to accentuate and away from the midriff you want to camouflage.
To make finding a sensational swimsuit easy for you this year, Big Girls Bras presents our top 5 swimsuits for the apple-shaped woman.
The tankini is an apple-shaped woman's best friend. It gives you the flexibility of a two-piece suit while deemphasizing the midriff. These tankini tops do exactly that.
The Tara Grinna Bandeau Tankini Top Style FT-145 uses the halter style, empire waist and metallic accent at the bust to draw the eyes upward. The slight flair at the bottom of the tankini draws the eye to your slim hips and thighs.
Mix and match it with the bottom of your choice. This style is available in a variety of solid colors.
The sweetheart neck and crisscrossed fabric across the bust of the Sunsets Separates Heaven Shirred Tankini Top 85T accentuates the bust while the shirring and front side seams camouflage the midriff.
This style is available in both solids and prints.
Prefer a one piece? Here are three styles that flatter the apple shape.
The Aerin Rose Shirred Halter Underwire One Piece 335 does it all. The flattering deep plunge neckline, halter neck and underwires provide the support you need on top. The shirred design with tummy control nips you in at the waist. Available in black and three prints, this style comes in cup sizes D/DD and F/G.
The diagonal shaping and ruched front on the Tara Grinna One-Piece Surplice AA-313 visually diminishes your midriff and is available in three eye-catching prints.
The MiracleSuit Caliente Underwire Wrap One Piece 467123 is a great design for the apple-shaped woman. The high-cut legs accentuate your slim hips and thighs and the wrapped design give the appearance of an hourglass shape.
