Choosing A Bikini That Suits Your Body Type

For many women, a bikini is an essential part of their beach wardrobe. Bikinis come in many different styles, but you should know that not all styles work for every body type. Here are some tips for choosing a bikini that suits your body shape.

Small Breast

If you have small breasts, you can choose whatever type of bikini you want. To make your breasts look fuller, you should try a padded bikini top or an under-wire bikini top. Another trick for fuller-looking breasts is to wear a ruffled bandeau top. The wrinkles will reduce the outline of your breasts and create the illusion of curves. A triangular bikini top in a bold print is best for smaller breasts. This will make your body appear more curved.

Full Bust

If you have larger breasts, you should wear a bikini top under the wire for extra support. You should also choose a bikini that provides good protection. Avoid thin triangular tops or bandeau, as that will only make your breasts appear bigger. A dumbbell top is a good choice because it provides good coverage and support.

The Pot Belly

Just because you have a flabby stomach doesn’t mean you have to walk the beach in a boring black one-piece swimsuit. You can try wearing a dark-colored tankini to cover your stomach and make you look slimmer. Tankini with a diagonal print can also disguise your stomach. If you want to reduce the appearance of your abs, wear bikini shorts instead of bikini panties.

Pear-shaped body

Cover your bottom half with bikini shorts or a swimsuit. Wear dark colors for a slimming effect. Avoid bikini briefs as they will only reveal the parts you need to cover up. A bikini top in a bold pattern or a lighter color will help draw attention away from your hips and thighs.

Pencil-shaped body

For a less curvy body, try wearing a bikini top with lots of details like ruffles or print to accentuate your figure. A bikini top under the wire or padding will help create cleavage. Wear a bikini bottom with ruffles or bows on the side to create the illusion of curvy hips.

Short legs

Shorts or bikini skirts will only make your legs look shorter. The bottom of the bikini is high cut, which makes your legs appear longer. To complete the look, wear a halter top. A halter top helps to make the torso appear longer and accentuates the chest and shoulders.
