Email Archives: Top 4 Swimwear Styles for the Pear-Shaped Woman

Pear-Shaped WomanIf you have a pear-shaped body you have a lot in common with some of the most beautiful women in the world: Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johansson, Claire Dane, Gwyneth Paltrow and Marilyn Monroe. What you share with these gorgeous celebrities is the tendency to carry more of your weight below your waist.

You may have tried swimsuits that accentuated your lower half and were less than flattering. The key to swimwear fashion, like all fashion, is to draw the eye to your best features and deemphasize the rest.

To make finding the perfect suit a little easier this year, Big Girls Bras has pulled together our recommendations for the best swimsuit styles for pear-shaped women.

If you like two-piece suits, buying separates rather than a set is the way to go. Pear-shaped women often do best when they can purchase the top and bottom in different sizes rather than a set where neither piece may provide you with the best fit. Separates also allow you to mix and match colors. You can purchase the top in neon pink or a bright tropical pattern and choose a more sedate, coordinating color for the bottom.


Swim Systems F755When choosing bikini tops, look for design and detailing that draw the eye up. The Swim Systems Maraca PinUp Push Up Swimsuit Top F755 meets these requirements. The bright print, retro sweetheart neckline and wide straps all draw the eye up. This style comes in D and DD cups with underwires and light padding.


Tara Grinna 136The Tara Grinna Twist Bandeau Swimsuit Top 136 gives you a guaranteed WOW! The twist styling with gathering detail at the cups is exquisite. This style comes with molded removable soft cups and is available in a variety of bright solids and prints.


Tara Grinna 145Tankinis are also a good choice for pear-shaped women, but not all styles will be flattering on all women; it depends on where the hem of the tankini falls on your body. The metal accent and the wide halter straps of the Tara Grinna Bandeau Tankini 145 keeps the eye above your waist.


Be Creative 3508853The Be Creative Asymmetrical Tankini with Frills 3508853 is also an excellent choice.


Tara Grinna 213When choosing swimwear bottoms, pear-shaped women look better in fuller-styles rather than skimpier styles which draw the eye to them. Available in a variety of colors the Tara Grinna Tall Waisted Swimsuit Bottom 213 is a good choice. The high rise waist band can be worn straight up, folded over or ruched. There's even a little tummy control thrown in.


Swim Systems F240The Swim Systems Convertible Roll Up Down Swimsuit Bottom Style F240 gives you the option of how high or low to wear the waist and provides flattering coverage.


Tara Grinna 344One of the most frequently recommended one-piece styles for the pear-shaped woman is the Tara Grinna Bandeau One Piece with Split Front Overlay 344.

The metal accent and wide straps draw the eye up and the split front overlay provides a bit of camouflage to the abdomen.


Aerin Rose 333The ruching styling in the Aerin Rose Bandeau Halter One Piece Underwire Style 333 is well suited for the pear-shaped body. This suit provides full support on top with a hidden underwire and fits cup sizes D, DD, F and G. There is also an inner tummy control panel.


Magicsuit 464455The color block style in the MagicSuit Lisa Wrap Neck Halter One Piece 464455 is perfect for the pear-shaped body. The goddess draping at the neck is an elegant design and the underwire provides both support and comfort.
