Swimsuit season is coming up and it’s time to focus on finding the perfect bikini, one-piece or tankini. Whether you want to take the focus off your hips or create a more voluptuous profile, finding the most flattering style for your figure is just a click away.
Don’t let your height deter you from making a splash at the beach this summer. Pick colors that pop, but stay away from anything too girly such as florals or polka-dots. Mix and match the Arizona Bandeau Top ($20, JCPenney) in Mint Green with the Arizona Hipster Bottoms ($20, JCPenney) in Extreme Pink.
Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and for plus-sized gals, swimsuits that accentuate a sexy neckline combined with a pretty silhouette will make you feel like a million bucks at the pool. The Kenneth Cole Reaction Ruffle Bikini Top ($70, Macy’s) and Swim Skirt ($62) in Berry will sweep your crush off his feet.
A little padding goes a long way for small-busted women. The SO Push-Up Halter Bikini Top ($32, Kohls) will give you just the right amount of oomph and cleavage and looks super-cute when paired with the SO Boyshort Bottoms ($28, Kohls)
Busty women can sometimes find it difficult to find swimsuit tops that keep everything contained. If you’re set on rocking a bikini, opt for tops that provide coverage, support and lift—swimsuit tops that mimic bras, like this cute red and white striped one from Panache (starting at $45), are perfect for women with bigger chests. Other options include triangle or halter tops with underwire, like this blue and white polka dotted one (starting at $38), also from Panache.
Long legs look killer when your strut the sand catwalk. If you’ve got some serious height, opt for a bold-printed bikini such as the Xhilaration Multi Stripe Top ($17.99, Target) and Hipster Bottoms ($14.99, Target). For your Fourth of July pool party, show off in the Zicac Sexy Stars and Stripes American Flag Swimsuit ($8.88-$18.89, Amazon.com).
So, no matter what size you are, swimsuit season doesn’t have to be a scary time of year as you can always find the best bathing suit for your body type.
