How to Choose the Right Swimwear for Your Body Shape and Proportions
It can be difficult to find the right swimsuit for your body shape and proportions, we understand that. But don't worry – we've got you covered.
In this blog post, we'll go over some tips on how to choose the right swimwear for your body shape and proportions.
But first: identify your body shape
The first step in choosing the right swimwear is to identify your body shape. There are several different body shapes, including hourglass, pear, apple, rectangle, and inverted triangle.
Once you know your body shape, you can choose the bikini that fits your figure and enhances your best features. Let's have a look at the different body types below.
Inverted Triangle Shape
If you have an inverted triangle-shaped figure, you have broader shoulders and bust with narrower hips and thighs. Look for swimsuits that balance out your proportions, such as bikini bottoms with side ties and one-piece swimsuits with a high neckline.
If you have an hourglass figure, you have a balanced proportion between your hips and shoulders with a defined waist. Look for swimsuits that put the attention on your curves, such as high-waisted bikini sets, one-piece swimsuits with cutouts, and triangle bikini tops.
If you have a pear-shaped figure, you have wider hips and thighs with a smaller waist and bust. Look for swimsuits that balance out your proportions, such as high-cut bikini bottoms, one-piece swimsuits with a plunging neckline, and bikini tops with padding or strings.

If you have an apple-shaped figure, you carry weight in your midsection with a smaller bust and hips. Look for swimsuits that draw attention away from your midsection, such as one-piece swimsuits with ruching or a wrap design, and high-waisted bikini bottoms.
If you have a rectangle-shaped figure, you have a straight silhouette with little definition in your waist. Look for swimsuits that create the 'illusion' of curves, such as one-piece swimsuits with cutouts, and bikini tops with push-up padding, like this one.

Consider Your Proportions
1/4) In addition to your body shape, you should also consider your proportions when choosing swimwear. This means taking into account the length of your torso, the size of your bust, and the width of your shoulders.
2/4) If you have a long torso, look for swimsuits with a lower neckline or cutouts to create the 'illusion' of a shorter torso. If you have a short torso, look for swimsuits with a higher neckline or a one-piece swimsuit to create the illusion of a longer torso.
3/4) If you have a larger bust, look for swimsuits with underwire or padding for support, such as halter or high-neck bikini tops. If you have a smaller bust, look for swimsuits with ruffles or embellishments to create the illusion of a larger bust.
4/4) If you have broad shoulders, look for swimsuits with a wider neckline to balance out your proportions, such as a scoop neck or off-the-shoulder design. If you have narrow shoulders, look for swimsuits with straps to create the illusion of broader shoulders.
Choose the Right Colors and Patterns
In addition to choosing the right styles, you should also consider the colors and patterns of your swimwear. Darker colors can be slimming, while brighter colors and bold patterns can draw attention to certain areas.
