Swimsuits For Every Body Type:
Just because you have a small bust, doesn’t mean you can’t pull off a string bikini. This summer, find a bikini top with fringe or ruffles to fill out your chest. Stripes, white, or bright neon colors also create the illusion of a fuller bust! If you’re into simpler styles, opt for wired push-up bikini tops with extra padding to give your chest an extra boost — and a little underwire can also be worn by girls with a larger chest for better support!
If You Have A Large Chest:
Feel like you constantly need to adjust your top because of your large bust? Don’t fret! Bikini season is the time for you to flaunt your assets and make everyone jealous! To ensure that there are no slip-ups, look for thick halter tops or underwire for maximum support.
If You Have An Athletic Build:
Not into sexy string bikinis? More into beach volleyball and jogging? Well, we’ve got the perfect selection for you athletic girls! A retro suit will flatter your long and lean figure and will give your boyish figure some curves.
Just because you have curves doesn’t mean you can’t wear a bathing suit and still look fabulous! Tankinis are perfect for girls who want a sexy, two-piece cover up that they can mix-and-match and have fun with! Or try a sultry one-piece if you need a bit more coverage but don’t want to sacrifice your style. A sexy, deep-v will allow you to flaunt your figure while still staying covered up.
If You’re Pear-Shaped:
Pear-shaped girls have wider hips. Choosing dark-colored bottoms helps draw the attention up, which creates the illusion of shrinking the width of your hips! Board shorts are also cute alternatives.
If You Have A Flat Bottom:
Girls with flat bottoms should look for cheeky swim bottoms with ruffling on the back to provide the illusion of a fuller, rounder behind! Teeny-tiny string bikini bottoms are also perfect boosters for girls with flat bottoms.
If You Have A Large Bottom:
Girls with large bottoms should opt for maximum coverage and support, and an extra lift. Or try on cute one-pieces for full coverage! We’d skip loud patterns and instead look for simple colors or chic, clean designs (tip: dark colors are great for trimming extra inches off designated body parts!).
Whether you’re in the mood to splurge on a high-end bikini or looking for stylish swimwear that looks and feels expensive, check out our picks right here. You’ll be sure to find the perfect suit to heat up, (and hit up), the beach!
