How To Choose A Swimsuit That Flatters Your Figure

A cup sized swimsuit is a summer must have, but how do you know what shape is right for your body type? Let us help!

Athletic builds look best in suits with bust enhancing details. Ruffles at the neckline as well as bandeau bikini styles add curves to an athletic build.

Cleo Swim Betty Pink Spot Bandeau Bikini Top

If you're tall and thin ruffles are a great way to add the look of curves to your body. Frills will help you fake an hourglass shape and a front tie will add bulk to your bust.

Wearing stripes can help break up the line of a long torso while bold prints add curves and shape.

If you're bigger on the bottom you may think a boy short style is what you need but this will actually enhance the size of your bottom. A high cut brief elongates the leg while a tankini top lengthens your torso. Drawing attention to the bust with a deep-v or embellished neck line are also a figure flattering trick for the pear shaped woman.

Ruching is an easy way to slim a full tummy. If you're an apple shape try a banded bikini for added support and side detailing to slim your shape. A ruffled bottom can minimize your middle while a retro high cut bikini brief helps to flatten while you frolic in the sun.

Women with a short torso can lengthen their silhouette by wearing bold prints and colours on top, paired with a neutral bottom. A high cut bikini brief will show off your sexy legs and draw attention away from your torso.
