August 15, Do you tend to gain weight around your hips and thighs, but stay slim up top? If so, you're a pear shape, just like the fruit.
We all want our swimwear to look great so that we can be body confident on the beach. But everyone has different proportions and body shapes so it can be difficult to find the right kind of swimwear to show off your figure. To help you feel your best we have put together a little guide to help you choose the best pieces to help you strut your stuff this summer with confidence!
To end stressful and frustrating swimsuit shopping this year, we rounded up a list of stylish and flattering picks that are perfect for you. From curvier frames to athletic body types, we're helping to make sense of the endless swimwear options and narrowing them down to the choices that were made to fit and flatter your frame. Want to know what you should be looking for?
There are so many bathing suit styles on the market, it can be a bit overwhelming to pick just one. So, no matter your body type, go forth and rock any one of these styles. With a gorgeous plunging neckline and cute ruffled details with hanging tassel, this sleek and flirty black one-piece will easily become a staple in your swimsuit drawer for years to come. This bold one-piece from beloved athleisure brand Sweaty Betty features a strappy racerback and a trendy cut-out at the waist.
This eye-catching, smocked top will have all the attention on the upper half with your shoulders as the star of the show. The plunging neckline and wide-set straps draw the eye upward and create a balance between a narrow chest and broad hips. A sexy cutout and a cinched tie-front create visual interest up top while the vertical stripes on the high-waisted bottom slim the hips.
If scrolling the swimwear pages has you a little overwhelmed and unsure where to start, then feel free to take a breath pour yourself a wine! Everybody is different and there are certainly more than 5 body shapes! At the end of the day this is just a guide.
You know what? You are absolutely not on your own: more than 90 per cent of British women say that they dislike everything to do with their bodies and that includes the models. The key is to develop the confidence to carry an entire look — and the word is gorgeous! Set up a mirror moment.
Pear-shape, hourglass, inverted trapezoid -- we can't even keep track of the ways people are categorizing womens' bodies anymore. When you're at the mall, do you ever say, "Ugh I can't wear this top because I'm apple-shaped"? While the outdated body categories frustrate us on a regular basis, they become even more annoying when swimsuit shopping -- a task that is difficult enough without us having to figure out if we're banana-shaped or not.
