How to Choose Perfect Swimwear for Your Figure?

Bikinis, one-piece bathing suits, tankini, and so many different types of swimwear are available to women, but in a sea of choices, it is not always easy to pick the most appropriate swimsuit. Moreover, a woman must consider her body type and her personal preferences when shopping for the perfect piece as well. If swimsuit shopping has always been a torture to you, it will no longer have to be.

Determine your body type

The first step in choosing the perfect swimsuit is determining the type of your body. Pear shape, apple shape, hourglass shape, and a straight shape are the four types of body shape, and every woman belongs to a certain type. The swimsuit sizing and styling depends on the hips, bust and waist ratio, so it is necessary to know the measures of these parts of your body in order to pick the best bathing suit.

Women whose hips are much wider than the waist and bust are said to have a pear body shape. If the waist is wider than the hips and as wide as the bust, your shape is apple. Furthermore, equal width of the bust and hips, with a much smaller waist indicates an hourglass shape. Finally, if hips, waist, and the bust are all the same or near width you are probably a straight shape. 

Colors and fabrics

When shopping for a bathing suit, it is important to choose colors and fabrics that will emphasize the most attractive part of the body and hide the parts that should be covered. Not only will this boost your confidence, but also make you look amazing.
Bright colors and patterns will best highlight the feature you intend to highlight. Solid colors, on the other hand, will hide the unflattering areas. Black and deep jewel tones including maroon, navy and dark purple will flatter the women with pale skin tone. For the ones with dark skin tone, bright colors are the best choice. If you want to add some volume to your hips, pick the swimsuit with ruffles on the bottom. If, on the other hand, you have an extra volume on the waist you would like to hide, shirred and ruched fabric will cover it perfectly.

Considering it is difficult sometimes to find the swimsuit that perfectly fits both the upper and the bottom part of our body, feel free to shop in stores that sell tops and bottoms separately. This way you can mix and match size and colors you need, and make your perfect swimsuit. 

The right cut

For those who find their waist area unflattering, one-piece, and two-piece swimsuits with high-waisted bottoms is the best choice. Curvaceous women are usually the ones that have trouble finding trendy plus size swimwear that fits them well. Therefore, boy shorts are to be avoided by women with wider hips, because these bottoms will only make that area look wider.
A tankini is the best for highlighting the waist, and covering hips or bust. Short women always try to find the way to be taller, which is why they should wear a high-cut bikini bottom, because it will visually elongate their legs. For women who wish to make their bust look larger, a tie-front bikini is the best option, because it will pull the breasts closer together.

Women that have a pear body shape should wear bandeau tops, in order to make their figure look like an hourglass and their bust wider. If, on the other hand, you wish to make your bust look smaller, a straight across cut at the top of the swimsuit that features wide set straps will visually perfectly minimize the breasts.
These few pointers will definitely make your life easier. Next time you go shopping for the perfect swimsuit, make sure you check these suggestions, and there is no way you will come home empty-handed.
