We have a wonderful selection of swimwear that offers flattering silhouettes and luxurious fabrics. Below, we have provided styling and fit advice with swimwear suggestions based on your body shape.
Try swimwear with support and coverage through the bust area with features like an underwire or underbust banding. For a suit that offers support without covering up too much, look for a halter top. Try these styles in either a one or two piece suit.
Avoid styles with minimal support and coverage, such as strapless, bandeau or small triangle tops.
Try swimwear that accentuates and adds to the bust area. Look for molded or padded tops, as well as details to create volume like ruffles, bandeau designs, or brightly colored tops. Try these styles in either one or two piece suit.
Avoid fuller tops with a lot of fabric or tops made of thin fabric.
Try a one piece style that features ruching and dark colors through the midsection. These features will help to conceal any problem areas.
Avoid two piece styles and fabric that is overly thin or very light in color.
NARROW HIPS AND WAIST
Try a swimsuit that gives the illusion of a defined waist. Create this illusion with a one piece swimsuit that is either belted or features horizontal stripes at the waistline. A two piece with rings, ruffles, or bows at the hips can also help to define the waistline.
Avoid solid colored swimwear or suits with all over horizontal stripes.
Try a suit in a darker color that offers average to full coverage in the back. Try these styles in either a one or two piece suit. Skirted bottoms or even a swimsuit wrap can also be great options.
Avoid bottoms that are boyshorts, ruffled, or cut narrow in the back.
Try a suit that features ruching, ruffles, or bold prints on the bottom. Suits that are cut narrow and offer little fabric in the back are also ideal. Try these styles in either a one or two piece suit.
Avoid bottoms that are full coverage or a solid dark color.
Try a suit with embellishments at the hips and bust line. Horizontal stripes and ruching also help to break up the torso. Longer torsos also look great in boyshorts. Try these styles in either a one or two piece suit.
Avoid suits with vertical stripes, high or plunging necklines.
SHORT LEGS OR TORSO
Try a suit that is cut high on the leg to help elongate the frame. Try a suit with a plunging neckline to lengthen the torso. Bright, solid colored one piece suits are usually the best option.
Avoid boyshorts and skirted or embellished bottoms, as these draw the eye downward and create a shorter silhouette.
Try a suit that is colorful or features embellishments such as ties on the bottom. Necklines that are square or feature thick shoulder straps are also ideal. Try these styles in either a one or two piece suit.
Avoid suits that are either halter or have a plunging neckline. Also avoid styles with minimal coverage at the bottom.
