Best Bathing Suits for Your Body Type and Budget

Finding the perfect swimming suits for women is pretty much like finding the perfect pair of white jeans. In two words: not easy. Between the different styles, price points and, let’s be honest, the fact that we have to look at our bodies in that awful fitting room lighting, it can get a bit overwhelming. Not all bathing suits fit everyone the same way, so the best way to tackle the task of finding a bathing suit you love is by identifying your shape and playing up your assets. If you concentrate on what flatters you the most, you will feel and look your best!

While we all have different body types (and levels of confidence), there are four major groups the majority of us fall into: slim, curvy, athletic and pear-shaped. Here are some tips to consider when you’re out shopping for swimwear that, hopefully, will help make the experience a whole lot easier!

If you’re slim…

Aim to look a bit fuller in your bust or create the illusion of an hourglass shape by opting for pieces that have extra fabric in the form of ruffles, bows and ties. If you’re small-chested, then a ruffled top will make it look bigger. 😉

If you’re curvy…

Show off your assets and accentuate your waist. Strategically-placed ruching can make your waist look smaller and flatter your figure.

If you’re athletic…

Bathing suits with cut-outs and embellishments, like ruffles and bows, not only create the illusion of curves, but also soften up your shape.

If you’re pear-shaped…

The best bathing suits for those of you who are lighter on top are ones that draw attention upward, like one-pieces with plunging necklines or deep halter bikini tops. Try to keep the bottom plain and simple so that the style doesn’t get too busy.
