Trends are all well and good but when it comes to swimwear, finding a style that flatters your body is of the utmost importance. Whether you want to accentuate your curves, hide your tummy or show off your booty, use this guide to zero in on the perfect swimsuit for you.

built-in-bustier-curvy1-600x600

 

The beauty of a bustier is it works to support you in all the right places including your bust, tummy and waist.
Belle Bustier Bikini, Zimmermann $355

 

 

 

triangle-tops-small-chest-600x600

 

If you have broad shoulders, avoid excess material and opt for a triangle top with thin straps.
Crochet-Trim Bikini in Balinese Floral, Victoria’s Secret $105

 

 

 

pleated-fabric-full-figures1-600x600

 

Pleated or ruched fabric is a brilliant design element for all body types. In addition to looking pretty, this texture will camouflage areas you don’t want to focus on.

cut-out-halters-pear-shaped1-600x600

If you’re small on top and big on the bottom (pear shaped), try drawing the eyes up with a cool cut-out halter suit.

plunging-necklines-small-chest1-600x600

 

A plunging neckline is particularly suited for anyone with a flat chest—especially since girls with big breasts can’t wear this silhouette. Find a style incorporating ruffles to create the illusion of volume.
Bettina Swimsuit, Agent Provocateur $315

 

 

 

string-bikini-bottoms-large-bum1-600x600

 

It’s counterintuitive, but less is more when it comes to selecting a swimsuit if you have a bigger bum. String-tie bottoms can be adjusted to fit perfect—as opposed to one-size-fits-all styles like boyshorts.

high-waist1-600x600

 

Whether you just had a baby, don’t like your belly button or simply want to cover your abs, a chic high-waisted suit is your best bet.

feminine-sillouhettes-boyish-600x600

 

Feminine silhouettes with delicate lace ties, in pretty prints work wonders for anyone with a boyish figure.
Azul Print Underwire Bikini Top and High Waisted Bottom, For Love & Lemons $212

 

 

 

spaghetti-strap-athletic-figures1-600x600

 

If you’re athletic, find a one-piece with spaghetti straps and an exposed back to show off your highly-coveted ballet posture.
Moroccan Dreams Wild Side One Piece, L Space $149
