Women's Body Shapes

 

The HOURGLASS 

You have a small, well defined waist and equally proportioned fuller bust and hips.

  • Wear matching bikini sets in one colour or matching prints to keep your top and bottom half in proportion.
  • Retro swimwear with high waisted briefs and boxy halter tops will highlight your figure.
  • Choose a swimsuit to accentuate your curves, with waist detail and ruching.
  • Bandeau/Strapless swimwear are extremely flattering on an hourglass shape.
  • Steer clear from string bikinis and monokinis that will accentuate your widest areas.

The PEAR 

You are curvier at the hips, waist and thighs and smaller on the bust. When choosing swimwear be aware of balancing out your proportions.

  • Look out for eye-catching or padded/push -up bikini tops to create cleavage and accentuate your bust.
  • Pair a patterned bikini or tankini top with plain bottoms to draw attention to your top half.
  • Keep your bottom half simple and modest with a classic high-leg brief to elongate your legs.
  • Accentuate your narrow shoulders with a bandeau top or asymmetrical swimsuit.

The APPLE 

Your shape is wider round the waist than the shoulders and hips. Look for styles that flatter your waistline.

  • High-waisted briefs with a bikini or tankini top are great for covering up and smoothing out your waist.
  • Look for bikini bottoms or swimwear with gathers, ruching or shirring detail.
  • Swimsuits with wrap-around or cross-over fabric around the waist work a treat.

The RECTANGLE 

Your figure is 'straight up and down' which means you have a small bust and narrow hips and waist. Flaunt your figure with less coverage to give the illusion of more curves.

  • Padded tops and triangle bikinis will instantly create cleavage.
  • Choose bold prints, ruffles, ruching and embellishments to give you more shape.
  • Monokinis are great to give you instant curves.

The STRAWBERRY 

Your have a fuller bust, broad shoulders and slimmer waist and hips. You will want more support on the bust to balance out your body.

  • Choose swimwear with bra sizes, underwires and adjustable straps for great support.
  • Avoid embellishments and ruffles on the top to minimise the attention from your bust.
  • Try swim dresses or brief skirts that will bring your body back into proportion.
  • Avoid Bandeau/Strapless tops that will draw in more attention.
  • Mix and match your bikini/tankini sets by wearing a plain top with patterned briefs.
