Check these out, too...
If you’re Ruler
If you want to create the illusion of curves, slip yourself
into this suit. The contrasting pattern on the sides give the appearance of a
curvier figure and the adorable cut-out draws attention to your waist.
Polka Dot 1-Piece Swimsuit (Assorted Colors), $30, target.com
If you’re Tall
Instantly look more proportional with a
geo-patterned suit with cut-outs. Bold and symmetrical prints like this make a
straight, tall figure look more curvaceous. Go for a suit that has a lot going
on to highlight your model-like height. If you’ve got it, flaunt it!
Palm Ombre Aztec Monokini, $25, delias.com
If you’re Petite
As a petite girl, your biggest concern
is how to find a small swimsuit that doesn’t make you look like the kids you
babysit. Try going for something sophisticated with a touch of spunk, like this
solid black one-piece with multicolored straps. Check out your local department
store’s petite section for a ton more options.
If you’re Apple
V-shaped necklines are
the most flattering for an apple shape because they draw attention to all the
right places. The ruffle design instantly lifts the eye away from your stomach
and makes your middle look smaller. Go for high-cut legs to accentuate your
slim hips and thighs. So fab.
Scoop V-Neck Suit, $30, oldnavy.com
If you’re Pear
If you’re a little more bottom-heavy, get
a suit that accentuates your torso and your neckline to draw the eye upwards.
Choose a halter-top in a solid dark color or a big, bold pattern, like this
super cute paisley print.
Juniors One Piece Paisley Print, $30, target.com
If you’re Curvy
Vertical or diagonal lines can create
the illusion of a thinner torso by drawing your eye up and in, not out, which
can actually make you appear wider (ugh!). We love the simple diagonal stripes
on this suit; they’re sure to make you look slimmer the second you slip it
W Swimwear Chevron V-Neck One-Piece Swimsuit, $53, nordstrom.com
If you’re Plus
There are so many super stylish and budget-friendly plus-size swimwear
options available these days, so you have tons of options to chose from. Try on
a one-piece with a high-cut leg to help elongate your legs to make you appear
taller and slimmer. Stay away from solid horizontal striped suits and go for
something more exciting with prints and patterns, like this zebra number.
Simply Sole’ Safari 1 Pc Bandeau Swimsuit, $50, alwaysforme.com
If you’re Hourglass
If you’ve got an hourglass figure, don’t
be afraid to experiment with different styles. Try something out-of-the-box, like this animal print one-piece with
majorly daring cut-outs. You’ll definitely be turning heads in this suit.
Lira Bali Cutout One Piece, $38, pacsun.com
If you’re Athletic
If you’ve got an athletic body type, then
you’ve got lots of swimsuit choices to give ya all the curves you crave. Simple
additions, like fringe and ruffles, can take you from a straight build to fabulous
and curvaceous like that. You’ll be
strutting through the sand like you’re on a runway—full confidence!
Candies Fringe Monokini, $35, kohls.com
