Swimsuits to Suit Your Body Shape

Holiday season is upon us and the dreaded bikini has to come out again.  Worry not, whatever your body shape or hang ups are we can find a swimsuit to suit your body shape…


If you are Curvy:

Try a slimming one piece swimsuit with a structured body and slimming lines.  it’s all about the 1950s this season so go for a vintage inspired look like this spotty number from Evans.

Blue Spot Halter Swimsuit

Evans Blue Spot Halter Swimsuit, £32

If you have Broad Shoulders:

You need a halter neck style to balance out broad shoulders.  This style breaks up the neck and balances out your body.  There are loads of great colours and patterns in this style but I like this studded Aztec design from Topshop.

Lime Studded Triangle Bikini

Topshop Lime Studded Triangle Bikini, £28

If you have a Small Bust:

You want a frilly top to balance out larger thighs and make small busts appear bigger!  This Floral triangle bikini top by Piha Posy at ASOS is just what you need.

Piha Posy Frill Bikini Top

Piha Posy Frill Triangle Bikini Top, £19.50

If you have a Large Bust:

The main thing you need if you have a large bust is support.   It is worth investing in a good underwired bikini top if you have a large bust and getting measured so that it fits your cup size properly.  John Lewis have a great range of swimwear for larger busts including this gorgeous one by Seafolly.

Seafolly Rococo Rose

Seafolly Rococo Rose Bikini Top, £62.50

If you have a Wobbly Tummy:

In keeping with this seasons 1950s look are fuller pant style bikini bottoms which are great for hiding wobbly tummys!  I love this vintage inspired lemon print bikini from Topshop.

Lemon Yellow Bandeau Bikini

Topshop Lemon Yellow Bikini, £34

So we hope this will help you learn how to cover up you worst bits and enhance your best bits this summer.  If you’re still not feeling 100% bikini-ready don’t worry!  Just remember that there is always someone wobblier than you when you get on the beach and by the time you are lay on your lounger with a cold cocktail, reading your book will you really care anyway!
