We all want our swimwear to compliment our body so that we can be confident at the beach. But we know that every female has different curves, proportions and body shapes so it can be difficult to find the right kind of swimwear to show-off your figure.

To help everyone make a style statement, we have put together a guide to bathing suit shopping using language we actually use to describe ourselves.

Whether you’re hourglass, athletic, pear-shaped, apple-shaped, 6-feet tall or petite, we can find a bathing suit that will show off your shape — and make you strut your beach-look with aplomb!

Hourglass Body Shape

Lucky you! Your buttocks and bust lines are very well-balanced and the waist is also defined beautifully. This body shape has fuller hips and bust, with a smaller waist. The best swimwear will support you and accentuate your curves.

Athletic Body Shape

You know you have an athletic body shape if you have well toned attractive curves. Athletic ladies are straight up and down with smaller busts. The best swimwear will enhance your curves and enhance your hips and bust.

Apple Body Shape

You know you have an apple body shape if you have a larger bust than the hip section, undefined waist, round shoulders, smaller hip, and slimmer legs and arms. It’s great to go for swimwear that creates more waist definition with shirring and wrap details.

Pear Body Shape

If you have large hips and a tiny bust, you have a pear body shape. This type of body is also known as the triangle shape. Here you want to balance out your figure by accentuating your bust area.

Strawberry Body Shape

Finally we have strawberries. This is for women with large busts. If this is your shape then it’s a great idea to look for swimwear with bra sizing and added support such as underwire and adjustable straps.

Now that you know about your body shape and the best ways to get spotlight on your curves and edges, go take on the world. Love your body shape because you can dress to impress like no one can!
