Tips to Find the Best Swimsuit for Your Body Type

May 16, 2023 | Shapermint Team

Summer is just around the corner, and it's time to get ready to make a splash with the perfect swimwear for your body type. Whether you're an hourglass, apple, pear, or strawberry shape, we've got some tips to help you find the best swimsuit that celebrates your shape all summer.

Hourglass Body Type

If you have an hourglass figure with well-defined curves, you're in luck! Embrace your beautiful shape by opting for swimwear that accentuates your waistline. High-waisted bikini bottoms are your best friend, as they highlight your curves and enhance your silhouette. Pair them with a supportive halter bikini top or a halter neck style to complete the look.

Apple Body Type

For those with an apple-shaped figure, the goal is to create balance and draw attention away from the midsection. Look for one-piece swim sets with ruching or draping around the waist area to provide a flattering shape. V-necklines or plunging necklines help elongate the torso, while asymmetrical patterns or designs divert attention from the tummy region.

Pear Body Type

If you have a pear-shaped body, you can embrace your curves by highlighting your upper body and minimizing attention on the hips and thighs. Opt for bikini tops with embellishments, ruffles, or patterns to draw attention upwards. On the bottom, choose darker colors or solid bottoms to create a slimming effect. Skirted bottoms or swim dresses are also great options as they provide additional coverage while still looking stylish.

Strawberry Body Type

For those with a strawberry body type, the aim is to create the illusion of curves and femininity. Opt for bikinis with padded tops or ruffles to add volume to your bust. Triangle tops and bandeau styles can also help enhance your curves. Choose bikini bottoms with side ties or details to add some flair and draw attention to your hips.

Remember, these are just general guidelines, and the most important thing is to feel comfortable and confident in whatever swimwear you choose. Don't be afraid to mix and match different styles to find what works best for you! Don't forget to also check out the Ultimate Guide to Shopping for Shape-Enhancing Swimwear.

So, whether you're planning a beach getaway or lounging by the pool, now you have the tools to find the perfect swimwear that flatters your body type. Embrace your unique shape, have fun with different styles, and wear that swimsuit with confidence!

Happy swimsuit shopping, and enjoy the sunny days ahead! 🌴👙
