How to Choose a Swimsuit for Your Body Type
We know how daunting of a task it can be choosing a Holy Grail swimsuit, one that accentuates the best parts of your body and takes attention away from the, well, not so flattering areas. But whether you’re pear-shaped, top-heavy, or flat-chested, there are specific things to keep in mind when shopping for your summer swimsuit. Read on to see what they are!
If you’re top-heavy
Opt for swimsuits that draw attention away from your top half and onto your lower half. Ones with patterns on the bottoms or scrunched up fabric at the waist are perfect. Halter tops like the Ayara Collection ‘Charmed’ swimsuit also work well with those who are looking to tone down their bust.
If you’re flat-chested
Looking to make your bust appear fuller? Choose a swimsuit with fun patterns or prints like polka dots or stripes. Also, a bandeau top works wonders for beauties who are looking to amp up their petite frame. We love the Ayara Collection ‘Island Girl’ swimsuit, as it accentuates all the right places.
If you’re pear-shaped
Look for a one-piece swimsuit if your main goal is to hide your waist like our ‘Rose One-Piece’. Dark colors that feature ruching or shirring will work well with your body type. Steer clear of boy shorts, as they’ll make your hips appear wider.
If you’re petite
Contrary to popular belief, you can look taller and longer than you really are! The trick? Opting for a swimsuit that has vertical stripes as opposed to horizontal. The vertical stripes give the illusion of a lengthy frame. Also choose bikini bottoms that are cut higher—the more leg shown, the taller you’ll look!
