When we hear the word “summer” it brings to mind, beaches, fun, waves, and most especially bikini. Choosing a bikini could feel like a whole lot of work with all the designs and styles. Not to mention the horrifying scenarios of a failed beach vacation that you have conceived in mine.  Letting go of preconceived ideas and going into the experience with an open mind can help immensely. Buying a bikini can be an enjoyable experience if you consider your body type and bikini options.  

Here are the things you should consider: 

  • Body Shape

Identifying your body shape to choose the best swimsuit.

Choosing swimwear that complements your body shape is easier when you know what your body shape is and how to dress according to your shape. Choosing the right swimsuit based on your body shape will boost your confidence by showing off your assets instead of covering up the parts and features in which you are less secure. Knowing your body shape makes shopping much easier once you know what to look for.

How to find the perfect swimsuit according to your body shape?

Body Shape



The Round/Apple shapes have a larger midsection and thin legs and arms. Tankinis with shirring or shapewear in the stomach can draw attention away from that area. A bottom with high-cut sides will show off your legs. Should wear V and wide necklines, must draw more attention to the legs.

The Triangle shapes have larger hips with a small waist and bust. An underwire top will enhance your bust and draw the eye up. Pair it with a hipster bikini bottom as they offer more coverage in the back while lending balance to your hips.

The Column/ Rectangle shapes have a straight up and down body without many curves, and adding a ruffle can trick the eye. A bikini with a ruffle on top and bottom will give the illusion of a shapelier figure by adding volume to those areas. Ruffles can also be used on just one piece of a bikini to emphasize only one area.
