With a pear-shaped body, weight tends to be carried on the lower half, normally around the hips and thighs. Therefore, if you’re curvy at the hips and thighs and smaller on top, the key to the right swimsuit is balancing your proportions and getting the coverage you need for your bottom half with a strategic cheeky bikini cut bottom.
To balance this, bring focus to the upper half of your body with moulded cups, halter swimsuits and fun and pretty cleavage detailing that will also help to narrow your silhouette. Remember keeping your bottom darker or wear higher cut leg bottoms.
Use colour and pattern to balance your body visually- patterns draw attention to your top, while dark and solid colours on the bottom minimise attention.
Swimsuit for apple shaped body
For your apple shape, one-piece swimsuits in a solid colour can be a good stylish solution. A deep v-neckline swimsuit will help you show off your upper curves whilst supporting your bust.
Alternatively, look for a ruffle bikini or fringe bikini that emphasises your upper curves.
Try swimsuits with small print or creative prints (polka dot, stripes, patterns, etc.). At Surania, you’ll find tons of prints enllaç prints surania) to draw attention away from the middle. Colour blocking can also be used to create this effect. You can slim down your front by looking for side detailing that will draw the eye to the sides, opposed to your stomach.
Swimsuit for hourglass or curvy shaped body
Feminine and curvy hourglass figures are characterised by having a chest “equal” in measurement to the hips, often with a small and defined waist. This shape is apparently the perfect body shape, so you can get away with most swimwear styles.
Go for an underwire bikini, bandeau bikini, or halter top bikini style to support your chest. Don’t be afraid of solid and bold colours, or a small print to highlight your balanced curves.
Diamond or Inverted Triangle
Inverted triangles are broader on the top and may have larger chests that require extra support. Halter bikini tops can be a good choice, providing your large bust with the support it needs, whilst also providing a great cleavage. What’s more, some structure in the chest, such as with a push up bikini or underwire bikini with wide shoulder straps, a sporty style, will help.
The key is to emphasise the bottom and minimise the top. Prevent the eye from focusing on any one part of your body. As a result, your busty figure and shoulders seem less noticeable. Also, you can add detailing on your suit that will balance your silhouette.
Ample cleavage. You’re chesty and require more support up top.
Opt for bathing suits with underwire bikinis or moulded cups to give you the support you need. At Surania, there are multiple options available in many different styles. For instance, bra-style tops with underwire and adjustable straps provide extra bust support. The thicker the strap, the more support. Explore bathing suits marked with sizing like your regular bra, including styles that go above a D, which are constructed to support a larger bust.
Bikini for small bust
Proportionally, you’re smaller on top with an A or B cup,
Opt for a smaller chest that requires less support, so you can look for styles with minimal coverage, embellished detailing, bows and patterns to create the illusion of a larger chest.
Triangle bikinis create the illusion of curves, as do tops with bold prints or with ruffles. Bra tops and padded push-up bikinis offer extra lift and can create more cleavage, as can certain halter tops. A smaller bust always means you can wear a micro bikini or bandeaus bikinis, embrace them!
Bikini for athletic body or straight
We believe that there are many women with an athletic body type and they should focus on feminine cuts and details.
If you have broad shoulders, narrower hips and muscular legs, bikinis can break up a straight line. Choose a bandeau bikini top that flatters your body shape, or a ruffled bottom that adds interest. Your body shape lacks the curves of a defined waist, so create some by wearing a one-piece swimsuit, such as a belted swimsuit that will give you the appearance of a nipped in waist and a sexy hourglass shape, whilst a curvy seam on each side of the body will also help to add balance.
Pretty patterns and accessories will help to add a more feminine touch whilst balancing out a more athletic frame.
