The Perfect Fit: Swimwear for Different Body Types

Let’s face it, swimsuit shopping isn’t exactly on most people’s top five list of favorite things to do. It often involves a lot of guesswork, dressing rooms with less-than-flattering lighting, and that nagging voice inside that keeps saying: “I should hit the gym more…”

But no need to have a swimsuit-season meltdown! The most important thing to keep in mind when finding the right swimsuit is FIT. Focusing on styles that work well with YOUR body type (not the Photoshopped model in the catalog!) can mean the difference between a meltdown and easy-breezy & fun swimsuit shopping!

Our swimwear buyers have handpicked a few stellar examples below of the most flattering types of swimwear for specific body types to make swimwear shopping a breeze.

Don’t forget that all of our swimwear receives FREE next business day shipping + FRRE return shipping, too! Now you can take the swimsuit shop in the comfort of your own room. Easier than you thought, huh? Let's get started:

Athletic Build: For women who don’t have too much in the curves department (i.e. no hips, broader shoulders), a two-piece bikini is generally more flattering because it breaks up the straight line of your body. A lower-waisted bottom also accentuates your widest part, while fringe and ruffles add more volume and femininity where you want it.

Pear-Shaped: If you’ve got a fuller lower half, a fold-over bottom or something that’s cinched and adjustable on the sides gives your curves more room to move! If you’re going for a print at the bottom, make sure to balance it out with a print up top.

Vintage-style high-waisted bottoms are also great for giving a fuller backside more coverage. Plus, they’re super flirty and cute!

Apple-Shaped: Ruching is your best friend when it comes to camouflaging a larger tummy. Find swimsuits that accentuate your bust and show a clear separation between your chest and your stomach. A one-shoulder suit also calls attention to your top half and away from your mid section. 

Trina Turk Zanzibar One Piece

Miraclesuit Net Work Jena Swimsuit

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear

Large Bust: Find halter bikini tops with wider straps to offer the support you need. An underwire also reinforces lift and support where you need it most. Opt for an adjustable back for the perfect fit all around.

Seafolly Goddess DD Cup Halter Top & Twist Band Mini Hipster Bottom

Vix Para Bia Tube Triangle Top & Long Tie Side Full Bottom

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear 

Small Bust: To add more volume, find tops with ruching and ruffles at the bust. A bold, busy print also helps call attention to your top half.

Embrace your ability to wear smaller, sexier styles like the bandeau! Play around with fun cuts and trendy, slinky shapes that larger-chested gals couldn’t pull off. It’s all about having fun after all!
