Small Bust

DOS:

  • Go for a top with embellishments or ruffles which gives the illusion of a larger bust
  • A lifting, push-up, or padded top will bring out your curves

DON'TS:

  • Flat triangle tops
  • Solid colored swimwear

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Cherry On Top Monokini

Aloha Polka Bikini Set

 

Huge Bust

DOS:

  • Go for a top with cups or underwire support
  • Thicker bathing suit straps and double-stitched bands work great

DON'TS:

  • String bikinis

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Boracay Bikini Set

Bahamas Bikini Set

 

Tummy Troubles

DOS:

  • A full one piece with ruching or panel sides slims the appearance of the waist
  • Opt for a plunging neckline to keep the focus upwards, rather than on your mid-section

DON'TS:

  • Bikini sets
  • Low rise bottoms

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Seaside Stripe Monokini

Take The Plunge Monokini

 

Love Handles

DOS:

  • A high-waisted bottom that extends above the belly button will work wonders to prevent a muffin top look!

DON'TS:

  • Low-waisted bottoms

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Cabana Bikini Set

Maldives Bikini Set

 

Flat Booty

DOS:

  • Frills and ruching give the illusion of a bigger booty
  • Opt for bright colors and loud prints to distract from a flatter bum

DON'TS:

  • Full-coverage bottoms with little detailing

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Check Me Out Bikini Set

Honeybee Bikini Set

Take The Plunge Monokini

 

Big Booty

DOS:

  • Pick a suit with enough fabric for coverage
  • Solid bottoms and printed tops are a plus to balance out a big booty

DON'TS:

  • String bikinis
  • High cut or brazilian swimsuits

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Beach Babe Bikini Set

Maldives Bikini Set

 

Short Torso

DOS:

  • Low rise bottoms make your torso appear longer
  • Longer straps, halter straps, and asymmetrical designs draw attention to your neck and shoulders instead of your short mid-section

DON'TS:

  • Strapless tops

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Daisy Dreams Bikini Set

Sumatra Bikini Set

 

Long Torso

DOS:

  • Two-piece bikinis with bright colors visually shorten the torso and make your waist look smaller
  • V-shaped necklines, horizontal stripes, and high cut bottoms are designs that will look more flattering

DON'TS:

  • Bikini bottoms that cut straight across the hip
  • One-piece suits

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Tahiti Bikini Set

Poolside Polka Bikini Set

 

Short Legs

DOS:

  • Swimsuits with high-cut bottoms sitting above the hip will elongate shorter legs
  • If you're really brave, go for a thong for optimal lengthening
  • One piece suits can bring your waistline up, adding inches to your legs instantly

DON'TS:

  • Shorts for bottoms

RECOMMENDATIONS:

 

Bahamas Bikini Set

Ocean View Monokini

Aruba Bikini Set
