Choose the Perfect Swimwear for Your Body Type
If you always struggle to find swimwear that suits you, it could be because you’re buying
the wrong styles for your figure. If you buy based on your body shape, you’ll always find
swimwear that makes you look and feel great – no matter what shape or size you are.
Follow these tips to find the perfect swimwear for you!
Most people wish they had an hourglass figure, but buying the right swimsuit for an
hourglass frame can be hard – mainly because hourglass women tend to have bigger chests.
If you don’t mind flashing the flesh, choose a bikini with plenty of support up top. There’s
nothing worse than having to constantly fiddle about with strings or straps. If you prefer a
one-piece, avoid strapless styles as they give very little chest support and can make your
shoulders look wider too.
If you’re larger around the middle and don’t have much of a waist, you might want to
choose a costume that gives the illusion of a slimmer midriff. Choose a swimsuit with a belt
or band around the waist to help you look more cinched-in. A one-piece with side panels
in a contrasting colour will also create an instantly slimming look. Avoid bikinis, as they will
draw attention to your middle, rather than disguising it.
If you’re larger around your hips, thighs and bum, there are lots of clever ways to cover up
the bits that you don’t like and still look confident. Choose a high leg one-piece or bikini
brief to help elongate your legs, and avoid wearing busy patterns on your bottom half. One
great trick is to choose plain bikini bottoms and a patterned top, which will draw the eye to
the top half of your body. If you wear a one-piece, choose something with thicker straps to
help balance out your body.
If you’re tall and thin with a small chest, it can be hard to find swimwear that enhances
your assets and accentuates what you’ve got. To give the illusion of more rounded hips,
choose a one-piece or bikini with a skirt to help add volume to your bottom half. Styles
with under-wiring and support will also be a good option, helping to push your assets up.
Avoid bandeau style tops or costumes as they’ll flatten out your chest and make it look even
smaller. Take a look at the Isme ladies swimwear range for some inspiration.
