Swimsuit season: Find the best suit for your shape

by Brenda Blount//

It’s swimsuit season and you know what that means. Shopping for a swimsuit can leave you screaming in the dressing room, but don’t fret because we have a swimsuit guide for every body.


Remember, you’re beautiful and your body is beautiful, so the key is enjoying the summer fun in the perfect suit that compliments your shape. This quick guide will put a smile on your face and save you from the swimsuit shopping headache.


Small Chest

For a look that is flattering and gives you the illusion of a fuller bust, try a ruffle top or a top that has stripes. A deep V one-piece also is a great choice.


Full Chest

Okay, so let’s get this out of the way now: A string bikini is not your friend, so walk right past that selection when shopping. Look for a swimsuit that has your cup size, not S, M, L or XL, but your actual cup size — 36D, 38D, or whatever your cup size happens to be. Look for wide straps for support and do try on every suit that captures your interest.


Full Bottom

The one thing to keep in mind when you have a full bottom is coverage. A solid color or not too wild print will help balance your bottom.


Love handles and back fat

A tankini flatters most bodies and looks great. A high-waisted bottom looks great as well. You may also want to try a one-piece swimsuit. Just because everyone else is in a bikini doesn’t mean you have to be also. A one-piece is flattering on most everyone, but just make sure you don’t go too small or too large.
