It can be hard to know which swimsuit style looks best for your body shape, so we’re making it easy by featuring some of our favorite suits for every body type. Check out the article below!
What Is Your Swimsuit Body Type?
Let’s start with understanding the different standard types of body shapes. Typically, there are five body types: inverted triangle, rectangle, pear, apple, and hourglass. We’ll dive into the nuances between each shape below. For now, start by taking a few measurements of your body to see which body type you align with the most.
Grab a tape measure and wrap it around your shoulders, your bust, your hips and your waist. Write down your numbers see which body style fits you best below.
If your shoulders or bust measure bigger than your hips, your body type is likely an inverted triangle. This body shape looks really great in clothing - and swimsuits! - with deep v-necklines and defined waists. The approach here is to flaunt your curves up top while adding volume to your hips/thighs to even out the top.
Our favorite swimwear for Inverted Triangle body types includes: Twist Tankini Tops, Sport Tankini Tops, and Drawstring Swim Skirt Bottoms.
You may be a rectangle body shape if your shoulders, bust, and hips are around the same size. This body shape is typically more athletic-looking and looks really great in styles with prints and details that add volume and form-fitting clothes that emphasize your lean shape.
Our favorite swimwear for Rectangle body types includes: Push-Up Bikini Tops, Scoop Tankini Tops, and Boy Short Swim Bottoms.
A pear body type typically has measurements with hips and thighs larger than the bust and/or shoulders. This body shape rocks curves and looks great in styles with intricate necklines, defined waistlines and flowy bottoms. Our favorite swimwear for Pear body shapes include: Midkini Tops, High-Neckline Tankini Tops, and Swim Skirts like Sarong Wraps.
Apple body shapes typically have measurements with the bust and waist larger than the hips and thighs. This body shape looks great in open necklines and styles that accentuate your legs.
The hourglass body shape has similar measurements in the bust and hip area with smaller measurements in the waist. This body shape looks great in styles that highlight your waistline and accentuate your curves.
