Swimwear Styles for Every Body Type

05 Jun 2023

Summer is just around the corner, and that means it's time to start thinking about swimwear. But with so many styles and designs to choose from, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect swimsuit that flatters your body type.

Don't worry, though, because we've got you covered. In this guide, we'll explore the various swimwear styles that are perfect for every body type.

One-Piece Swimsuits

One-piece swimsuits are a classic and versatile option that suit most body shapes. They offer more coverage than bikinis, making them perfect for those who want to feel comfortable and confident at the beach or by the pool.

But that doesn't mean they have to be boring. In fact, there are plenty of one-piece swimsuits that are stylish and sexy.

If you want to accentuate your curves in a one-piece, opt for one with cutouts, a low neckline or back, or a wrap front design. Asymmetrical designs are also great for creating an illusion of an hourglass figure.

And if you're looking for a little extra support, choose a one-piece with built-in underwire or padding.


Bikinis are perfect for those who want to show off a little more skin and embrace the summer vibes. They come in an array of styles, including halter, triangle, bandeau, and high-neck, so you're sure to find one that suits your taste.

But with so many options, it can be tough to know which one will flatter your body best.

Women with an hourglass figure can opt for high-waisted bottoms paired with a bikini top that ties around the neck. This style will accentuate your curves and create a balanced look. For women with smaller busts or inverted triangle figures, push-up or padded bikini tops can enhance the upper body and create a more proportionate look.

And if you're looking for a little extra coverage on the bottom, choose a bikini with a high-waisted bottom or boyshorts.


Tankinis are perfect for those who want more coverage than a bikini but don't like the idea of wearing a one-piece. They come in various styles and designs, from halter tops to strapless, so you can choose one that suits your style. But what makes tankinis so great is their versatility.

If you have a pear-shaped body, a tankini with ruffles or details around the bust area can bring balance to the proportions. For those with an apple-shaped or rectangle figure, a tankini with a flowy top can create a slimming effect.

And if you're looking for a little more coverage on the bottom, choose a tankini with a skirted bottom.

High-Waisted Bottoms

High-waisted bottoms are trendy and perfect for creating an hourglass figure. They help to cinch in the waist and add curves while providing support and coverage. But that doesn't mean they're only for those with an hourglass figure.

Women with rectangular or apple-shaped bodies can benefit from high-waisted bottoms that create the illusion of curves.

And if you're looking for a retro-inspired look, pair high-waisted bottoms with a crop top or a one-piece swimsuit with a high neckline.


Cover-ups are perfect for those who want a little more coverage in their swimwear. They come in various lengths, from mini to midi, and are perfect for those with apple-shaped or rectangle figures. But that doesn't mean they have to be frumpy.

Swim dresses with V-necklines or wrap-around designs can create an illusion of a slimmer body. And if you're looking for a little extra support, choose a swim dress with built-in underwire or padding.

Pair your swim dress with a wide-brimmed hat and oversized sunglasses for a chic and sophisticated look.

Now that you have a better understanding of the various swimwear styles that flatter your body best, it's time to hit the beach or pool with confidence.

Remember, the most important thing is to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin, no matter what style you choose.


Finding the perfect swimwear can be daunting, but understanding your body type and choosing a style that flatters your proportions can make all the difference. Choose your swimwear based on support, comfort, and coverage, and don't forget to add accessories to complete your look.

With this guide, you'll be ready to hit the beach or pool with confidence and style. Happy swimming!
