From a bikini to a one piece, purchasing a swimsuit can be stressful… one key element to help with the process, is to find something that suits your body shape. Here are some of my tops tips, to find the perfect swimwear this summer.
With a pear shape body, women are usually curvier through the hips & thigh area and smaller on top. Coverage on the bottom half is key, avoiding string bikini bottoms or cheeky Brazilians styles are the go however a higher-cut bottom elongates. Look for a top with either a plunging neck line or detail, to bring your attention upwards.
Large bust…Support is key, when it comes to ladies with a larger bust line. Looking for a bikini or one piece with underwear, adjustable straps and bra like cups are key.

A smaller bust line, requires less support, so embrace scoop necklines, triangle tops and bandeaus…however if you would like to create the illusion of a larger bust line, look for frills, bows & patterns on top and bra like tops with padding to create cleavage. Team it back with a low cut or string tie bottom for the perfect silhouette.
