The Right Swimwear to Suit Your Body

Blogged by: Jade Sardon 18 Jan 2018 View comments

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.

Pear Shape

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. 


Billabong - GINGHAM ONE PIECE $99.99 AUD


SDS – SEAFOLLY SAHARA NIGHTS DEEP V MAILLOT ONE PIECE $169.95


BRAS N THINGS - Clara High Swim Pant & TOP 

Large Bust

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.


DAVID JONES – MILEA Mini Rib Balconette D Bra $134.95


DAVID JONES – MILEA High waisted pant $79.95


BRAS N THINGS - Mono Rib High Swim top & Pant - White/Black 

CITY BEACH - Kaiami Botanica One Piece Swimsuit $79.99

Petite & Smaller Busts

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.


BILLABONG - SOL SEARCHER BANDEAU BIKINI TOP $39.99 & SEA CHASER TROPIC BIKINI BOTTOM $39.99


SDS – SEAFOLLY SAHARA NIGHTS BUSTIER BANDEAU $99.95 & SEAFOLLY SAHARA NIGHTS HIPSTER $69.95


DAVID JONES – JETS Luxe Plunge Tab Front One Piece $169.90

Tummy Concerns

For all my apple shape women out there, this is your main concern. You may be carrying a little weight around your tummy area and you usually prefer to cover your middle. You probably feel more comfortable in a one piece, with gathering fabrics around the mid-section.


DAVID JONES – TOGS Textured Rib Surplice One Piece $139.00


BILLABONG - SOL SEARCHER ONE PIECE $119.99
