  • Hourglass figure – Lucky you! Sport anything on the beach and you can easily cruise through looking gorgeous and sexy. However, bandeau or a triangle top would look the best.
  • Pear Shape – Bigger rear and comparatively smaller shoulder or bosom. Bandeau, plunging neck line or a halter would make you look stunning. You can consider opting for molded or padded cups as well. Avoid wearing high waist bikini bottoms.
  • Apple Shape – When you have a little extra on your upper body as in the tummy or the bosom but incredible legs then you are apple shaped and so the mantra is to show off. Go for halter neck, tankini, darker colors, ruched or criss cross styles. Horizontal stripes are a big no no for an apple shape body type.
  • Full Figure – Plain bikinis or V neck lines would look stunningly chic on you. Sexy caftans or sarongs will also make you look ravishing. However, try and refrain from bikini shorts or high cut bikini bottoms.
  • Straight Figure – Small busts and rear. Triangle bikini tops, ruffles or frills would look best on you. Vertical stripes or high necklines should be avoided.
  • Petite Figure – If you are lesser than 5’3 or at it, plunging necklines, high cut bikini bottoms and halter neck will do wonders to your appeal. Over-sized prints and straps should be strictly shunned.
  • So, you got to identify your body type and the next summertime you go out to shop for your favorite swimwear piece, keep the above pointers in mind and you would know what to let go and what to purchase. Drop in your queries if any at the following e-mail address
