I own exactly two swim suits and they're both athletic ones from Speedo, designed for lengths in the pool not exactly prime for looking good whilst sunning myself on the beach. I'm not lucky enough to be going on holiday this year but if you are, here's a guide which may be helpful in finding the perfect swimwear for your body shape featuring the new collection by Figleaves.
Athletic and slender, with narrow shoulders and hips and a slightly defined waist.
Show off your slim shape in a bikini and add volume to your hips and bust with bright prints and frills.
Shaped legs, shoulders and waist are balanced with a full bust and round tummy.
Draw attention to your legs with high cut briefs and look for tummy shaping designs to flatter your mid-section.
Full, curvy hips with narrow shoulders and a smaller bust.
A halterneck bikini top will give the illusion of wider shoulders which will balance out your hips. Ruffled or printed tops draw the eye upwards. Classic bikini briefs will also flatter.
Full bust and rounded hips defined by a nipped in waist.
Try a cup sized bikini top with underwiring for comfortable support. Show off your well-balanced shape in bold prints
Narrow hips and a slender waist with wide, athletic shoulders and a full bust.
Balance your lower half with patterned or detailed bikini briefs to draw the eye to your hips and waist. An underwired bikini top is a must for good bust support, comfort and uplift.
