Swimwear For Your Shape

Swimwear For Your Shape

 Beach Babe Guide

We all have unique and beautiful body shapes. But with so many styles and designs to choose from it can sometimes be difficult to decide what style will look perfect on you (especially if you haven't quite achieved your beach body goal). We believe in choosing the style that you'll be most comfortable in and feel great knowing that you're wearing something that shows off your best assets.

So we've come up with this guide to help you better understand what shape you are and what styles play up your sexiest features. 

We'll start with the typical body shapes and hopefully guide you to the one that matches closest to you.

Pear: Full and curvy around the bum, hips and thighs with a small bust and shoulders

Apple: Fuller figure up top and around the middle with slim legs 

Curves: Curvy top to bottom, bust, hips, thighs and bum 

Athletic / rectangle: Slim all over without curves 

All about the bust: Big bangers or bee stings

Now let’s take a look at the styles that best flatter your beautiful bod!

AppleA one piece is perfect for an apple shape. Go for a block colour but with some detail on the back or neckline. If you prefer a bikini, why not try a high cut leg and show off those pins!

Pear – You need balance! Try a plain bottom and match with a colourful print top with an eye catching neckline that will draw attention upwards. Avoid high cut legs.

Curves – A dark one piece with a plunging neck and/or back will show off your fabulous hourglass silhouette! Or a halter neck, high waist bikini with good coverage and support will highlight those voluptuous curves. If you’re curvy but petite, a monokini would look amazing!

Athletic – A padded halter neck in a patterned fabric can create the illusion of a cleavage, whilst strappy tie side hipster bottoms will show off your flat tummy. If you want to embrace your sporty physique, go for a racer back bikini, a one piece or why not try a surf style crop top.

Big Bust –  Avoid tassels, ruffled trims and bold embellishments on the top. Try a plain top with eye catching print bottoms. Support is key, so moulded cups and wires will help as will sturdy straps…. Or maybe try a trendy one piece to keep things in place.

Small Bust – Go mad with colourful bold patterns and padded halter necks! You are lucky enough that you don't need to worry about support, so embrace bandeaus, cute triangle or strapless tops.

Perfect Swimwear sorted?! Don't forget to pack some stylish and classy cover-ups for those walks around the resort and cocktail hour at the beach bar.

Light or crochet shorts are perfect to slip on when nipping for a top up at the bar. Whilst pretty light dresses, fashionable long robes and playsuits or rompers can shade you from the sun but keep you looking super sexy whilst you pop for a spot of alfresco lunch. If you want something versatile that will be chic enough to wear on those days when you go straight from sun lounger to cocktail hour, try a cute jumpsuit, light stretch mini dress or a stylish maxi. Whatever you get up to on holiday we’ve got you covered!
