Choosing swimwear to suit your body shape can be a challenge. There are lots of styles nowadays to suit all budgets but here’s my guide to picking the one to suit your figure so you can head to the pool or beach in style.



Choose solid colours which will be more flattering in something like a tankini style. V necked or cross over styles will help to emphasise your other assets and help detract attention away from your tummy area.


Try and avoid patterns or high cut styles on your bottom half and emphasise your top half instead. This can be done through pattern, jewellery or even a hat.

Plain top and patterned briefs will help create the illusion of a more balanced shape.


Try extra detailing such as bows or frills to create the illusion of a more fuller shape and curves.


A halterneck style or v neck will flatter your curves. Matching bikinis will keep everything in proportion and flatter your shape.


Finally, remember to choose styles in colours from your palette! Want to know your body shape and how to dress it? Get in touch to book a style consultation.
