SWIMWEAR FIT GUIDE

Knowing what suits your body shape is essential before investing in holiday staples. Whether you're an apple shape or hourglass, you can make the most of your figure with flattering swimsuits, tankinis, bikinis and cover-ups.

If you’re stuck wondering ‘What body shape am I?’, our handy guide will give you the rundown of the most common female body types and the key pieces from our range or flattering swimwear that suit them best. Read on to find the fits that our expert buyers have selected as the perfect swimwear to suit a range of body types.

 

Swimwear for PEAR SHAPED BODIES

The pear shape, also known as the spoon body shape, typically carries weight on the bottom half of the body and will have hips wider than the shoulders. The best swimsuits and bikinis for a pear shaped body balance out your shape with clever cuts and detailing.

Picking the perfect bikini styles for a small chest can complement your shape. Choose printed or embellished bikinis, bandeau tankini tops , or strapless swimsuits to add emphasis to the top half of the body.

 

Swimwear for HOURGLASS BODY SHAPES

A well-defined waist and large, equal-proportioned hips and bust indicate you have a curvy hourglass shape. When it comes to choosing swimwear for curves, supporting and enhancing your assets is key.

Bikni types that suit an hourglass body include underwired and halterneck bikini tops, paired with high waisted bikini bottoms. If you prefer swimsuits, we recomend one pieces and skirted swimsuits for curvy women.

 

Swimwear for APPLE SHAPED BODIES

An apple-shaped body is fuller around the middle with little to no definition at the waist. Bikinis and swimsuits for apples shapes should aim to define a waist and minimise a rounder tummy. Our range of flattering swimming costumes will give apple shapes added confidence by the beach.

Those looking to cater for big busts and tummy worries should consider wrap swimsuits and slimming swimwear. Full figure bikinis worn with high waisted bikini bottoms are ideal for supporting your assets. If you're looking for swimsuits and bikinis for larger ladies, our range of plus swimwear has you covered.

 

 

Swimwear for INVERTED TRIANGLE SHAPES

Women with an inverted triangle body shape tend to have broad shoulders, narrow hips and a large bust, making the top half of the body larger than the bottom.

Ladies with this body type can be clever with print placement by pairing printed bikini bottoms with plain bikini tops. This balances out proportions creating curvy bikini bodies.

 

Swimwear for RECTANGLE BODY SHAPES

If you have small hips, shoulders and little to no definition at the waist, you have a rectangle body shape.

Clever styling tricks like choosing a padded bikini for a small bust can help create curves on an athletic body type. If you want the same effect but with more coverage, choose a printed swimsuit or layered tankini top
