Swimsuit Styles That are Good For Your Shape
Long Torso: Styles with waist bust seams are great, also high legs and plunging necklines reduce body length. Avoid verticals.
Tummy Area: Styles with front power net lining work the best. You may also want to try fabrics or styles that pull the eye away from the tummy area.
No waist: Avoid plain swimsuits or bikinis. Try swimsuits with crossover or central panels and mitered vees. You can also fool the eyes by wearing dark color's on the top half and lighter colors on the bottom.
Large Bust: Always look for swimsuits that provide support, comfort and coverage. Good options are underwires, sweetheart necklines and crossovers. Avoid horizontal stripes if you are looking to minimize your bust.
Small Bust: Some great choices for you are halter necks, frills and padded cups. Shirring, ruffles, rushing and frills are a good way to disguise a small bust. Bold colors and prints are great at flattering your figure.
Short Body Shape: Vertical stripes and prints help you torso look longer.
Long Body Shape: Vertical lines are a No No, always go for horizontal stripes and hoops. Tankinis shorten the torso length visibly.
Full Figures: Even though black helps you look thinner, patterns are a better and more exciting choice. V-lines and vertical lines have a slimming effect as well.
Large Hips/Thighs: Bust detailing, vertical stripes and dark colors work great because they draw the attention away from the hips/thighs and up to the bust.
Pear Shapes: One piece swimsuits, light color tankinis paired with a darker subdued bottoms and plunging necklines work fantastically at flattering your figure.
