Ahoy! Holiday season is right around the corner – we’ve already helped streamline your summer beauty kit and simplify your packing process and now we’re here to take the stress out of picking a swimsuit to suit your shape. Check out our top tips below for choosing the right beach wear to fit and flatter.
If you have wide shoulders opt for details like fine straps and halter neck ties, these will help break up the neckline, draw eyes in and create the illusion of a slimmer torso. Swimwear with contrasting panels will have the same effect.
If you’re feeling a bit bootylicious try looking for swimwear with contrasting detail near your waist, this will create an hourglass shape to balance out your bottom half. High cut legs also help break up your widest part and slim you down. Bold colours and patterns on top can also help draw eyes upwards.
If you have a narrower shape you don’t need to worry about balancing your proportions, however if you want to create some curves on the beach then cut out details on swimsuits are great for creating a killer hourglass shape, creating the illusion of a narrower waist.
Don’t feel self-conscious about your curves, apple shapes can rock a range of styles, high-waisted bikinis and retro style cossies are still all the rage this season, these are perfect for your shape! Colour blocking and panels on one pieces are also fab for your flattering your figure.
Swimsuit Shopping Tips
- Apply some fake tan the night before, will be easier to envisage how your swimwear will look when you’re a bronzed goddess on holiday, applying the night means you’re less likely to leave tan stains on the swimwear in store, oops!
- Have a little shuffle around the dressing room, you’re not going to be lying perfectly still the whole time you’re on holiday, you could be in and out of the pool, playing with your kids, or at the very least walking to a beach bar for refreshments. Try bending over or putting your hands up in the air to make sure there’s no spillage or slippage…
