Swimsuits and Bikinis to Flatter Different Body Types

We would all like to look good when we're on the beach on holiday, but sometimes wearing swimwear can make us feel a little self conscious. Very few of us, men and women included, have perfect bodies.

Not being able to disguise the body we do have can be an uncomfortable experience. Therefore, I have created this guide to help you find the best bikini, swimsuit or tankini for your particular body type.

A Big Tummy
If you are a little too large in the tummy are, then bikinis are best avoided. Go for a one piece swimwear design that will distract attention from the tummy area, avoiding bright or shiny materials. Choose a swimsuit that contains lycra, as this will smooth your contours.

Skinny, no boobs
What's the problem? Wear what you like. Seriously, I would go for a bikini with a padded bra to show off your flat tummy and give you a little bit extra in the chest department.

No waist
Tankinis, ie a tank top and bikini bottoms, look good as the top clings to your boobs but then skims over the waist area. This is a style that suits many women.

Boobs too big
Hmm. Not sure that this is a problem either, at least not according to my husband. If you are slim in other areas, I would go for one of the bikinis where you can buy a top and bottoms separately to ensure exactly the right size. Footprints and Onyx supply ranges such as these. Go for good, underwired support to stop you feeling self conscious.

If you're are a little heavy in the hip and thigh department, it's best to choose a one piece swimsuit or bikini with a high cut leg. A high cut leg will make your legs appear longer, and therefore slimmer. Consider a swimsuit with an in-built padded bra so you appear to be more in proportion.

Boobs too small
Again, go for a padded top. Consider a bikini with a self coloured bottom and a loud pattern on the top to make your boobs appear bigger than they are.
