A swimsuit guide for all shapes and sizes

How to look and feel your best this swimsuit season!

 

Choosing the right swimwear that suits your body can be a difficult and stressful process. We’ve got some tips to help you:

 

1. For those with a Big Bust:

Many women who don’t have this asset may think a big bust is a blessing, but those with a bigger chest know that it can be difficult to find a swimsuit that fits and flatters. You need to find the right support structure – as well as a store that stocks your cup size.

A solution to this dilemma is a halterneck style, which is practical but also feminine and flattering.

2. For those with Curves:

This is something many of us can relate to. And even though our curves should be our most beautiful and feminine feature, they often result in a lack of self-confidence. Not to worry, because there are some gorgeous styles to flatter a voluptuous figure.

Wanting to get that summer glow but not willing to bare it all? Fringed and high-waisted two-pieces are the way to go.

3. For those with a Small Bust:

If you feel shy because your bust is on the smaller side, try swimsuits that have a little more detail around the bust.

If your tummy isn’t as flat as you would like, opt for swimwear that either has a little ruching or layering.
