Finding The Perfect Swimsuit!

Nov 8, 2007
Swimsuit-shopping may never be painless, but if you know what suits will look great on your shape, it can be bearable.

Here, the best styles for different body types:

If you're pear-shaped... Try a tank suit with a bright color block on the top half. This will draw the eye up, minimizing your lower half. High-cut legs work well to make your legs look longer and leaner. Also, look for two-piece suits where the tops and bottoms are sold separately, since you might be a size smaller on top.

If you're petite... A triangle-top string bikini will look great on you, as will a sportier two-piece with boy shorts and a bandeau top. Or go for a simple tank in a bright color or medium to small print.

If you're straight up and down... A tankini or bikini with boy shorts is surprisingly flattering, as the shorts give your hips a bit of width. Or go for a tank with a belt or detail like a cutout at the waist, to give the illusion of a shapelier middle. Small bust too? Try a suit with details or patterns on top, which can make a small bust look fuller.

If you're big on top... Try an athletic-inspired suit, or one that has a not-too-low scoop neck in front. Look for suits with built-in bras for support.

If you're curvy or plus-size... Forget the plain black tank! Instead, go for a one-piece with a deep V-neck to show off cleavage, a halter top to maximize your feminine shape, or a two-piece with an adjustable string-tie bottom (you can customize the fit so it doesn't pinch or pull). Separately sold tops and bottoms can also help you get a perfect fit.

If you have a bit of a tummy... Try a strapless tank in a dark color with a subtle tone-on-tone pattern. Or go for a trendy style this season: a shirred tank, with camouflaging gathers across the belly or to one side. A suit with details down the sides also takes the emphasis off your belly.

Now get out and find the suit that flatters you the most!
