How to Find the Perfect Swimwear for Your Shape

Most of us are looking forward to the warmer weather as spring continues to bloom around the country. For many women, the idea of heading out to the shops to find swimwear for those lazy beach and pool days is more like a nightmare than a fun day out shopping.

If you have put on a few more winter pounds than you are comfortable with, you may be dreading the thought of putting on a bathing suit. The good news is that regardless of your body shape, it is possible to find the perfect swimwear that will give you confidence and style.

The first step to finding the perfect swimwear is to identify the unique shape of your body. Product lines you can find at Dainty Jewells come in all shapes, styles and sizes. Let’s take a closer look at a few tips to help you find the right swimwear for your shape. 

Dressing for Your Shape

There are virtually thousands of different styles and designs of swimwear for women. The choices can be overwhelming when you are trying to find something that you can confidently wear in the sun. Starting with finding your body style will help you to find styles and fits that will be the most flattering on your body.

RectangleAthletic Shape

If you have a Rectangular or Athletic build, your hip, waist, and bust measurements are probably fairly similar. Your waist is not very defined and you will generally have a smaller bust. To help boost your look in a swimsuit, you can try items that have interesting feminine detail that will draw the eye and take the focus off your lankiness. Stay away from styles that are two angular or boxy, like boy swim shorts or a square neckline. Bikinis in bright and playful prints will be the most flattering. One-piece swimwear with high-cut legs and a deeper v-cut neckline will help to bring more shape to your figure.

Hourglass Shape

The hourglass name will tell you everything you need to know about your shape. Women with an enviable hourglass shape generally have larger busts and hips with a smaller and well-defined waistline. High-waisted bikini bottoms are especially flattering on this shape as they highlight the smallness of the waist. One-piece suits that have some ruching at the waist will help to draw the eye to the small area around your waist. 

Pear Shape

Pear-shaped women have voluptuous bottoms and smaller tops. If you are pear-shaped, you may want to take the attention away from your lower body. Bikinis with full coverage and solid colors paired with a bright and floral top can help to even you out proportionally. High-cut bottoms on a one-piece suit can help to make your legs look longer and slimmer. 

Apple Shape

Women that are apple-shaped are blessed with lots of goods up top, with thinner waist and hips. To even out your form, you can look for one-piece suits that have some ruching at the waist and a sweetheart neckline. It’s important to find a suit that has sufficient support for your upper body. Tank top swimwear with an empire waist can help to highlight the slimmest part of your waist. 

each season is almost here. If you are preparing yourself to go swimwear shopping, follow these tips to help you find the perfect bathing suit for your shape.
