Finding the ever-elusive, perfect bikini is one of the summer’s biggest struggles. Avoiding any and all bodies of water is not the answer to this annual problem. There’s more than a few solutions to this decades-old issue.
1—The stomach-conscious girl.This swimsuit season is perfect for you because both one-piece swimsuits and high-waist bikini bottoms are on trend and better than ever. While one-piece swimsuits are flattering on almost any shape, they’re perfect for those of you still working to build your body confidence. Both of these pieces can hide any imperfections and create a definitive waistline. One-piece swimsuits with side cutouts are very popular!
2—The hourglass girl. For those of you hourglass-figured Fashionistas, it’s all about enhancing your assets. Wear statement pieces and bold prints on areas you’d like to showcase and wear solid, less eye-catching pieces on areas you’d like to detract attention. Mixing and matching tops and bottoms is great for this body shape.
3—The curvy beauties. Support can be a major issue when dealing with a bigger bust. Keep your eye out for retailers like ASOS that carry swimsuits in various cup sizes. Thicker straps and an adjustable band can go a long way in terms of support, which is why halter tops are a good option if you are bustier. If you’ve got it, flaunt it! There are plenty of bikinis out there for the curvy gals—it’s just about finding the right one for you.
4—The boyish and beautiful. For those of us Fashionistas who struggle with a lack of both bust and butt alike, tie-side bottoms and triangle tops are great for giving the appearance of a larger bust. Ruffles along swimsuit bottoms can allude to a curvier figure as well. Lucky enough for you, many swimsuits also come with push-up padding which can help give your figure a little more shape.
Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and there are many ways to accommodate that while still flaunting your assets. Where have you found your favorite swimsuit? Share with us on social media, and don’t forget to tag @CFashionista!
