Email Archives: Swimwear Tips for the Banana-Shaped Women
It's no wonder that what we once referred to as a boyish physique is now called banana-shaped; it doesn't seem appropriate to refer to the world's top models as boyish. Nor does boyish describe Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Kiera Knightly or Penelope Cruz.
If you are banana-shaped, you're in good company. A 2005 study at North Carolina State University said that about 47% of us are banana-shaped which technically means our waist is less than 9" smaller than our bust or hips.
The secret to looking great in swimwear is to accentuate your curves by visually making your waist appear smaller and your hips and bust larger in comparison.
Here are some tips to help you shine at the beach or pool this season.
When it comes to one-piece suits, look for styles that visually make your waist appear smaller.
