Finally, the long awaited time of sunshine, relax and cold drinks on a hot beach is here! But summer time is also a so much dreaded bikini time…If you were a bit to lazy for diet and excercise during spring time and your body is far from perfect, don’t get all covered up on the beach – there are bikinis out there that will turn you into a beach goddess, no matter what you shape and size is!
SMALL ON TOP?
If you have a boyish figure with small breats, you need a little bit of enhancement. Choose a padded push up bikini top and your assets will seem much larger. If you’re not comfortable with padding on the beach, go for frills and embellishements – they create an optical illusion of larger breats. Prints, fringe, horizontal stripes and lighter brighter colors all work well to call attention and add volume. Avoid sex-appeal quashing bandeau tops. If you prefer one-piece suits be daring and try a crochet bathing suit or a one-piece with risqué cutouts – you don’t need to worry about annoying underwire and support in your bathing suit.
If you can’t show off super-flat belly on the beach don’t worry! Try a belted one-piece bathing suit to cinch your waist and create a foxy hourglass shape that distracts from other unflattering curves. If you prefer a two-piece suit, try a tankini style or a high waisted bottom with full tank style top. Look for sweetheart necklines, tank styles with thicker straps and suits that have a higher Lycra content for structure and support. Opt for suits that ruch, gather pleat and wrap around the body–they will help to conceal the tummy area and hold you in.
If you’re lucky enough to have fuller breasts, try a one-piece suit with V-neck – this style shows the right amount of cleavage and elongates your figure, minimizing the fullness of your breats. Larger busts require a great amount of support, and styles that enhance cleavage but minimize at the same time. Darker tones are an excellent way to minimize and medium sized prints work well to camouflage, especially when the colors in the print are low in contrast. Look for underwire or sturdy cups built into the bust of your suit. Unless you have exhibitionist tendencies, stay away from anything with a shifty string top or bottom.
If your lower half is a little larger, camouflage your trouble spots with a strategically cut bottom. Conceal hips and thighs in full-coverage briefs, hipsters, or boy shorts. Stay away from loud “look at me!” prints on your lower half! Bottoms with rings keep suit from riding up and exposing that extra junk in your trunk. Call attention to your upper body with prints, patterns, bold bright colors, detailed jeweled necklines and eye-catching embellishment. Halters, molded cups and bandeau tops all work great in a two-piece. Tankinis are also wonderful for your body type. Look for color-blocked suits that are bright, light or patterned on top and darker on the bottom. Higher minimal necklines and boatnecks on a one piece will create balance by filling out your upper half.
Women with an athletic body type should focus on feminine cuts and details. Look for ruffles, bows, pleating and draped styles that soften your boxy frame and add a feminine touch. Opt for girly prints and don’t be afraid to play with patterns–but avoid anything with horizontal stripes. Show off your toned lower half with embellishments at the hip and a tapered-back bottom. Soften your chest area with cups, padding, gathering, or a girlie print. Halters, racer backs, one shoulders and classic one piece tank styles look great on an athletic body type when you want to embrace your muscular build because they play up toned shoulders, arms and backs. Cut out suits help show off toned abs and add some sex appeal. Pass on bandeaus, boy-cut briefs, and shapeless tanks.Avoid sporty tones like orange, red and blue and opt for girly tones like blush, purple and pink.
You have two options: Fake some curves or take advantage of the fact you have nothing to hide and wear a skimpy style. Enhance your boobs and butt with ruffles, gathering, or padding or flaunt your straight silhouette in an itty-bitty string bikini. Avoid shapeless bandeaus, tankinis and sporty bottoms. A halter bikini will bisect your shoulders and add lift and cleavage. For bottoms look for side ties, belted styles and triangle shapes.You want to highlight or create the illusion of a waist, so a one-piece wrap style that gathers at your middle is an excellent choice.Look for suits that call attention to the waist with belts and cut out details or contrasting colors at your midsection. Your suits should be cut high at the thigh to elongate your legs and add curve to the hips.
