Our Must Have Guide to this Season's Hottest Swimwear for your Figure

by Poinsettia Style April 07, 2015

Beach season is upon us and we've put together a list of our favorite swimwear collections for your body type.

The pear - Do you have a bountiful booty? Steer clear of boy short styles as these can make an already full rear look larger. A high cut bikini bottom will flatter your assets ( no pun intended!) and elongate the legs. A tankini top lengthens your torso, while a plunging or embellished neckline draws attention to your bust and is figure flattering for the pear shape.

Freya Spirit Swim Pink Plunge Tankini


The Apple - Ruching is an easy way to create the illusion of a flat tummy. A ruffled bottom or side detail help to minimize your middle, while a high waisted brief gives a vintage 50's feel and slims the torso to make you look and feel fabulous.


Cleo Swim Cassie Floral High Wasit Longline Bikini

The Hourglass - Curvy girls unite! Structured cup sized swimwear will offer the perfect support for a full bust. We love the Veronica range by Panache Swim as it offers hidden support to a K cup.

Panache Swim Veronica Red Balconette Bikini

The Athlete - Bandeau styles work best for an athletic build, but all styles with a ruffle or detail at the neckline can help to create the illusion of soft curves. Bra sized swimwear offers maximum support for beach sports like volleyball and jet skiing.

With a style for every body, we know you'll find something you love in our Spring Swimwear Collection. Expert advice is available at our Glasgow boutique or online at .
