We’re all looking for that perfect piece of swimwear to flaunt in the sunny months ahead. There are so many different styles out there, but it can sometimes be hard to find the right one for your body. I’ve compiled a little guide for different body types, that will make you feel confident on the beach.

For the Petite Girl, it is all about elongating the figure – I should know a lot about this one 🙂 A bikini with high-cut bottoms will lengthen your legs while horizontal stripes will make you appear taller.

For the Tall Girl a bikini with hipster bottoms or a classic-cut one piece accentuates the torso while a high-cut and high-waisted suit will compliment your legs!

For the Curvy Girl, reach for a high-waisted swimsuit to accentuate your waist.

For the Larger Busted Girl, try something with underwire in the top or wider straps to support you.

For the Smaller Busted Girl, bold prints and ruffles with create the illusion of a curvier top-half.

For the Pear Shaped Girl, plunging necklines or cool, upper cutouts will highlight your trim upper body.

For the Athletic Girl, go for a suit with some ruffles to highlight curves or choose one with flirty cutouts.
