Shape Stylist Tips for buying a Flattering Swimsuit.
To enhance and flatter your ample bust look for a swimsuit that offers support. Steer clear of saggy string ties and flimsy strapless numbers. Instead opt for designs that have inbuilt bra cup fittings, such as a supportive under wire or wider straps. A halter neck is almost always, the best option especially if paired with a fitted band under the bust. The V-neckline and wide straps will give that positively perky look leaving you to enjoy your summer jiggle free.
Adding soft curves can be as easy as choosing a style with a little helpful padding. The triangle shape top is flattering for a smaller bust and is always fashion right. Look for tops with styling features such as a cute bust tie or feminine ruffles as this will also give the illusion of a fuller bust.
Take the focus from booty to bust by toning down any details or colours on the bottom half of your body. A bikini is the best option, take advantage of the mix and match options many retailers offer. Choose a bottom shape that has moderate coverage, avoid too skimpy as too much will be on display and equally unflattering is a boy leg which will appear like excess fabric. Look for tops that direct attention to your bust line with contrasting colour or with attention grabbing details such as a bust tie or buckle.
Well -rounded Stomach
A tankini will be your best option or a one piece with ruching detail across the waist as this will disguise your tummy. A cross over style has the added benefit of defining the waistline giving a svelte look. Also some designers are now offering inbuilt shaping panels giving customers a little confidence boost.
Look for a one piece with a high cut leg to elongate your silhouette. This doesn’t need to be boring try a glam cut out style for a fashion edgy look or alternatively opt for a fun print or a brilliant new fashion colour.
Look for a high quality Lycra one-piece with an ultra flattering wide v- neckline that crosses over to the waist, a little ruching detail in the side seam will disguise any tummy trouble. Additionally opt for a high cut leg to optimize the overall slimming effect. Dark colours work best, try a deep blue or red as a fun alternative to black.
For that fresh sporty look that your more curvy friends can’t pull off, try a boy-leg bottom. To create curves contrast your boyish frame with a ruffled bikini or one-piece and showcase your girly side.
The perfect swimsuit for you makes the most of your shape. By carefully mixing colour, print and cut you can enhance and flatter your way through the festive summer months.
