You only have a few weeks left to get your body ready for the beach since summer break is just a few months away. You can always work with your figure and find swimwear that would complement your curves and highlight your assets if you are busy and lack the time to get in shape. Before you spend money on a tankini, maillot, or bandeau, you must first determine your body type. This will give you some guidance on what to actually wear so that you can look sexy and confident on your day out with friends.
You have an hourglass body type, which is the same as Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Alba’s, if your waist is small and defined, your hips and breasts are close to or nearly equal in size, and your hips and breasts are proportionately sized. You can basically wear anything because of the proportions of your body, from a bikini to a monokini. You could purchase halter bikinis with bands around the midriff if you are a bit voluptuous and self-conscious about your upper body. This will provide you with the ideal amount of support and coverage. Make sure the straps are strong and the bust area has foam cups or under wirings if you’re wearing a one-piece suit. Choose string bikinis with triangle tops or bandeaus if you have an hourglass figure. Although it may clash with your body’s proportions, avoid color blocking in your outfit.
It is advised to wear a tankini or a bikini top and boy shorts as swimwear if you have a triangular-shaped body, which includes a short torso, wide hips, and possibly long or chubby legs. You could wear regular-sized bottoms if you dislike the length. Avoid wearing tight clothing because it will make you appear larger. Use color and pattern to their fullest potential to divert attention from your figure. In order to balance out your silhouette, you could also invest in a maillot with wide straps and a horizontal neckline. If you want to appear a little bit more feminine, consider wearing a skirt bottom or a dress swimsuit to cover up your bulky lower half.
Avoid wearing strapless outfits if you have a top-heavy body type (an inverted triangle), like Jessica Simpson, as they will make your breasts appear saggy. Choose swimwear with thick straps and an underwire to give your body the support it requires. You must wear dark-colored tops and only wear patterns and colors on your underwear, as opposed to going for both patterns and colors on the top and bottom. If you want, you can dress in string bottoms because they would perfectly balance your appearance.
Finally, if you have a body type that is rectangular in shape—broad shoulders, no defined waist, and no curves—you should purchase elaborate bikini sets with ruffles and bows to add volume to your prominent areas. You should buy girly prints and swimsuits with lingerie-inspired designs to soften your athletic frame. Monokinis with belts will give the appearance of curves if you are worried about defining a waistline.
