Finding swimwear to suit your shape

Finding swimwear to suit your shape

Feel good in a bathing costume when you’re at the pool or on your travels.


Be honest, when was the last time you bought a new bathing costume? It’s one of those items in our wardrobe that we tend to think of as functional rather than stylish item. Yet if we gave a little thought to it, we might find a costume that’s fun and flattering to wear.


1.  Hourglass figure:

If your shoulders and hips are the same width, and you have a small waist, you are truly lucky. Your gorgeous body is an hourglass shape, and you can pull off practically any style - especially if you’re petite! Try them all: one-piece, bikini, glitters, solid colour, patterns, or mix and match.


2. Pear-shaped:

This body type is defined by curvy hips and legs, with smaller shoulders. If this sounds like you, your weapon of choice is a two-piece swimsuit with a flashy top! It doesn’t have to be a flashy colour, but it should take the attention away from your hips, and up to your bust.

Always choose low-cut bottoms, as high-cut bottoms will only accentuate your hips. And forget one-piece swimsuits and swimsuits with horizontal stripes: the first will shorten your legs, and the second will make your thighs look bigger!

3. Boy-shaped:

This is where your shoulders and hips are the same width, but your waist is only very slightly defined. More like the letter H than the number 8.
You should look for a swimsuit that will accentuate your hips, as well as your femininity. To make your figure more voluptuous, opt for a two-piece in a triangle shape. This will stop your body looking rectangular.

And if you prefer a one-piece? No problem, just choose something with glamorous colours like red. You can even try patterns over the hips – just stay away from squares or rectangles, as these aren’t particularly flattering. And banish square necklines or shorts, as these are too masculine.


4. The upside-down triangle:

This body shape is characterised by wide shoulders and narrow hips. If you choose to go for a one-piece swimsuit, try a V-neck cleavage, as this will take the focus away from your shoulders and make them appear less dominant.
Those who prefer two-piece suits should opt for high-waist shorts with horizontal stripes. This will give the illusion of larger hips. Never choose a low-cut bottom, as this will only accentuate the narrowness of your hips!


SUPER SAVVY TIP

You might try a mix and match swimsuit, with a bright colour for the top, and a dark colour for the bottom. This will make you appear slimmer around the hips.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try Always Discreet. I feel more comfortable now and even my family and friends have been able to talk openly about this. I can now play with my boys on the trampoline without worrying now, it's all the simple things I couldnt/wouldn't do before but now I can. Thank you x
