Swimsuits That Flatter Your Shape

Swimwear to best flatter a "fruit" shaped body. Not everybody is built to have the "celebrity" figure. We're all struggling either because our bodies resemble a pear or an apple... While these fruits are appetizing in themselves, we need to make our bodies look equally appetizing, especially when wearing swimwear. We'll discuss how to better choose your swimsuit based on the "fruit" your body resembles.

Apple Shaped Bodies

If you have slim legs and arms and carry your weight on your tummy then you are a classic apple shape, and it is easy to find swimwear to flatter your figure. The best way to highlight your curves and emphasize your best feature: your slender legs, is to choose swimwear bottoms that are cut high or string styles which tie on the sides. This way you will make your legs appear even longer. A good choice are tankinis! It seems that tankinis were especially designed for the apple shape. With the ability to cover your tummy when you want to, you have the option to roll it up while you sunbathe to get that all over bronzed color! For the best tummy slimming effects, get a tankini which is long enough to meet the top of your bikini bottoms. Any flesh revealing gap will only catch people’s eye and get people to look at the area you were hoping to distract them from. A patterned tankini top is also great for hiding any lumps and bumps. But there are other choices than tankinis! You could always choose a one piece swimsuit that has vertical lines (really, you need to avoid horizontal lines as much as possible). The vertical lines will help create the illusion of longevity. Designer one piece swimsuits are of high quality, the fabric is durable and aids in the slimming effects one so much desires.

Pear Shaped Bodies

A pear shaped body is one where the hips are wider than the shoulders, or where you carry more of your weight around your hips and thighs. In order to balance out your proportions, you need to make careful swimwear choices so you can flatter your figure and slim the bottom half while adding some volume to the top. To do this is easy once you know the tricks! First, please resist the urge to cover a fuller bottom with boy short bikini bottoms, as more fabric just means that there is more to cover! Instead go for a high cut leg as this will make your leg look longer and leaner, and go for a regular cut across the bottom as this will be most flattering for a pear shape. Second, color does matter! Avoid choosing same color top and bottom as there is nothing to attract the eyes from your bottom. Instead, choose a patterned or bright bikini top and a darker or plain swimwear bottom. This is the best way to visually balance your proportions, as it boosts your bust and slims your thighs beautifully. Wearing horizontal stripes on your top half is also a great way to look gorgeous in your swimwear! If you have a wider body, you need to choose swimwear with vertical stripes (if you're into stripes), as the horizontal stripes just make you look even wider. The whole idea is to look slimmer, not wider! One piece swimsuits and two piece swimsuits to complement an apple and pear shaped bodies. Not everybody is built to have the "celebrity" figure. We're all struggling either because our bodies resemble a pear or an apple... While these fruits are appetizing in themselves, we need to make our bodies look equally appetizing, especially when wearing swimwear.
