We’ve all seen enough makeover shows to know that a simple wardrobe update can instantly and dramatically improve a person’s appearance. The same is true with swimwear. One of the biggest mistakes we see: wearing an old, out of style, or poorly fitted swimsuit. If you’re in a fashion rut or lacking confidence, try a switch to a more flattering style in the latest fashion.


This is a naturally curvaceous sexy shape. Your shoulders and hips align nicely to each other with a curvy waist. You can get away with wearing pretty much any style bikini. Best recommended would be a string bikini. Your confidence will decide the size of the string bikini. Brazilian style bottoms are a great fit for a large posterior. Stay away from Boy Shorts, as they can make the hourglass figure appear bottom-heavy.


If you are a Pear Shape you have wider hips and thighs. You tend to have narrow shoulders with a smaller bust and a wider bottom. The Bikini best recommended for you is a halter neckline top with a high cut bottom. Mix and Match is great idea for a Pear. Stick with a solid bottom that draws attention away from your lower half. Go crazy with a bright or patterned top to draw attention to your upper body.


If you have a boyish shape your figure may be athletic but lacking curves. Straight hips with a smaller bust and smaller bottom. The key with this shape is to stick with ruffles and frills. A ruffled bottom and top will give you a more feminine look and make you look curvy. Also chose feminine, bright colors and floral prints – purples and pinks are a great choice.


An apple shaped woman will probably have a thicker middle area that she is looking to conceal. Best suit for an apple would be a one piece with a halter or V neck line. Goal is draw the eyes to your chest. No strap-less or straight neck lines. A Tankini is a great choice, and should have a V neckline and a full bottom.


If you are full figured you may have extra weight in both your mid and bottom areas. A one-piece is a great choice here. A suit with ruching (ruffles/bunching) down the middle helps to hide any bulging. If you are looking for something sexy a nice plunging neck line and high cut bottom will do the trick – this look helps to elongate your figure.
