How to Choose a Swimsuit to Flatter Your Figure

When it comes to choosing swimwear, some women begin to get a little nervous as they don’t feel confident enough about their bodies to know that they look good. Luckily there is a solution – anyone can look great in a swimming costume as long as they choose one that flatters their body shape. Here’s how to get a great look for your body this summer:

Pear Shaped Body
People with a pear shaped body are characterised by wider hips and bottoms in comparison to their shoulders and bust. For those with a pear shaped body, the most flattering style of swimming costume is actually a bikini but you have to choose a certain style. For this summer opt for a fashionable non-matching look. A pair of plain shorts or briefs will help to disguise your larger bottom section whilst a heavily patterned top will draw attention towards your top half.

Apple Shaped Body
An apple shaped body is characterised by a lack of defined waist. The most flattering style of swimsuit for an apple body shape is a swimming costume. For summer 2016 it needs to be plain in colour and include detailing down the sides such as ruching.  This will help to give the illusion of a more slender silhouette.

Hour Glass Body
An hour glass body means that you have womanly curves and the most flattering way to show off your body shape is with a one piece swimming costume. For a fashionable look, choose one that is plain in colour and features no additional detailing. If you want to accentuate your slim-line waist, you can opt for a swimming costume with a belt for definition, these are in-trend for 2016.

Straight Body
If you are lacking in womanly curves and have no defined waist, the best style of swimwear is a bikini as it helps to break up the long column of your figure. This summer tropical patterned bikinis are hot whilst if you prefer an all in one swimming costume, choose one with panels of colour down the sides to give the illusion of more shape.

And there you have it, anyone can look fabulous in swimwear this summer if they stick to style that flatters their figure, no matter what it is.
