Pear Shape

You’re curvy at the hips and thighs and smaller on top, like Beyoncé or Jennifer Lopez. You need to balance your proportions and get the coverage you need for your bottom half. A plunging neckline or eye-catching top draws the eye upward, minimizing the bottom.

Large Bust

Since you’re chesty, you require more support up top like Katy Perry and Sofia Vergara. Opt for suits with underwire or molded cups to get the support you need. Avoid ruffles or embellishments up top if you’re hoping to minimize the focus on your chest. Bra-style tops with underwire and adjustable straps provide extra bust support. Higher backs are also a good fit for helping to keep the girls up. Molded cups provide extra support and are available in many different styles.

Small Bust

Proportionally, you’re smaller on top with an A or B cup, like Kate Hudson. You needn’t much support, so you can look for styles with more minimal coverage or embellished detailing, bows, and patterns to create the illusion of a larger chest. Triangle tops create the illusion of curves, as do tops with bold prints or embellishments with ruffles. Bra tops and padded push-up tops offer extra lift and can create cleavage, as can certain halter tops. A smaller bust always means you can wear tiny scoop tops or bandeaus — embrace them!

Athletic Shape

You’re more straight up-and-down and have fewer curves, like Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel, and Jennifer Aniston. Play up your curves with styles that flaunt your frame. Suits with less coverage help to create the illusion of a shapelier figure. Tops or bottoms with bold prints, ruffles, and embellishments add intrigue and feminine flair and can create the appearance of more curve at top and bottom. Monokinis create fabulous curves, as do one-pieces with slashes or strategically placed cutouts. Tie-side bikini bottoms enhance curves and adjust perfectly to your size.

Apple Shape

You’re built a little more like an apple shape and carry your weight mostly in your middle. Try high-waisted or tankini styles that help to smooth out your middle. The gathered fabric hides bulges and creates definition in the waist. A figure-flattering surplice-wrap silhouette trims the waist with its crossover fabric. If you carry your weight in the lower part of your belly, try on a retro-inspired, high-waisted suit. They’re on-trend right now and look fabulous!

Curvy Shapes

You’re curvy throughout with a full bust, hips, thighs, and butt like Christina Hendricks, Scarlett Johansson, and Kim Kardashian. For curvy frames, the key is to highlight your curves while providing enough support and coverage. If you’re not keen on exaggerating your curves, then monokinis or string bikinis with thicker ties can accentuate your widest areas. Asymmetrical suits draw the eye toward the neckline, highlighting the beautiful line from a woman’s neck to her collarbone. Colorblocking can help highlight your shape, as do retro suits.

Plus-Sized Shape

If you are plus-sized, basically, you can try anything but if you need an idea for your shape, your swimsuit needs to be sexy but practical: sturdy straps, a good bra, and coverage for the backside. Opt for one-piece swimsuits that mask your thighs – it’s an ideal variant.
