What's your perfect fit?
Shopping for a swimsuit doesn't have to be a painful experience! Nearly every woman fits into one of five body-type categories. Knowing your body type makes swimsuit shopping fun and easy!
Inverted Triangle or Apple Shape:Apple-shaped bodies have an inverted triangle shape - meaning they have broad shoulders. If this describes your body shape, you'll want to choose a swimsuit with a high-cut neckline. This will minimize the top, and emphasize the bottom. A solid top with printed bottoms is your best bet for a 2-piece suit.
Triangular or Pear Shape:This body type has wonderfully rounded hips and bottom. With a wider waist than shoulders. One-piece boatneck, racerback and tummy-control swimsuits visibly create the illusion of broader shoulders for a more balanced figure! If you prefer a 2-piece suit, halter-style tops with darker bottoms are a great choice!
Slender or Athletic Shape:The slender body is long and lean with the same width at the shoulders, waist and hips. The main goal with this body type is to produce curves. You'll want a swimsuit that creates the look of a defined waistline. Try a belted bottom!
The Hourglass Shape:This is considered to be the perfect body shape. With a well-defined bust, waist and hips. Don't be shy! You can wear any style of swimsuit! Try something that will show off your feminine curves.
The Round or Oval Shape: This body shape usually has a fuller bust and a less-defined waist. With more narrow shoulders and thighs. Choose a swimsuit that draws attention away from the midriff and tummy area. Dark solids work wonders!
