How to Find The Right Swimsuit For Your Body Type

Because swimsuits expose so much skin, shopping for them can be difficult.

But I truly believe that anyone can wear swimwear; all you have to do is select one that fits you well, works with your body, and makes you feel at ease.

That should be the most crucial factor.

I’m going to provide you tips for each body type: apple, inverted triangle, pear, hourglass, and rectangle in this article.

I’m going to presume you already know your body type.

Let’s get started with the rectangle right now.


Rectangle models are common. It depends on the silhouette’s leanness.

The waist isn’t as defined as it is in an hourglass type. Although the bust and hips are narrower than those of an hourglass, they have similar proportions. It’s actually a rather balanced figure.

The aim here is to try to visually create the impression of an hourglass, which we can do using the swimsuit’s shape and/or pattern.

A one-piece suit with naked sides is a swimming suit I would recommend for this body type.

The horizontal fabric stripes serve to keep the bathing suit flat on your belly. They’re crucial for design, but the shape that is created is what counts most.

The neckline is round with a zipper, but it may also be without a zipper, a v-neck, plunging neckline, or a high top if that’s what you desire. You have a lot of possibilities.

What matters is the visual effect that is achieved.

Furthermore, it is important to have stripes of fabric in a contrasting color to ensure that the waist appears narrower. It makes a great first impression. That’s something you could obtain with a print as well. It doesn’t have to be separate fabric panels. That is the concept.


The waist is the widest section of Apple’s body, followed by the bust and hips, which are both similar in size.

This is only one example. Hips could be a little wider, but that’s irrelevant for this reason.

I’m guessing you want ample support for your breasts and coverage for your belly. Choose a high-waisted piece over a low-waisted one.

I believe most apple ladies would feel more at ease in high-waisted clothing, and the same could be said for swimsuits.

A two-piece swimsuit is the kind of design I’d recommend for this body type.

The top, on the other hand, is essentially a bra because it features boning to support the breasts. The cups are in place. Different seams are used to ensure optimum fit. You may do a small bit of padding all over the cup to make it look more uniform. The shoulder sections are sufficiently wide to be comfortable.

That is one of the most comfy swimsuit bras I’ve ever seen.

The bottom is then high-waisted and covers enough of the hips to make you feel comfortable. Go all the way up to your belly button, but you could go much higher.

Drapery is a fantastic thing to have. That draws the eye to the side where you can put a ring, and because it’s a contrasting, darker hue, it provides the impression that the bottom isn’t as high as it appears, so everything is minimized.

You could use patterns, but I think darker, solid colors look better in that situation.

If you don’t like the drapery on the bottom, you can wear a pareo over your usual swimsuit that you can tie around your hips and remove when you go swimming. It also works.


On one side, she has a larger bust and hips, while on the other, she has a smaller waist.

It has a very feminine look to it. When you have this body type, it’s also much more difficult to find clothes that fits.

When it comes to swimwear for a day at the beach, you want sufficient support for the breasts, which is always an issue when you have larger breasts.

The waist wouldn’t fit in a one-piece swimming suit, so you’ll need two.

I’d recommend two pieces.

The top is a halter top with a good grasp behind the neck that pushes everything up.

For the bottom, avoid the apparent choice of a triangle bikini. Go for a more sporty look. This type of bottom is one of my favorites since it allows you to move, play, and swim without having to check every five seconds that nothing is moving.

One of my favorites is that. Every body type that feels at ease in sporty swimsuits might benefit from it.

It can have small cutouts to create a look that is classy, sporty, but still lovely.

Inverted Triangle

The concept is that the bust is wider than the hips, and the hips are extremely slim.

In terms of swimwear strategy, you want to visually lower the width of your breasts while increasing the width of your hips to create a sense of balance and femininity.

Choose two pieces. Instead of having a single horizontal line that makes your bust appear even wider, the top is twisted bandeau, which produces a heart shape.

The halter then crosses in front of your neck before going behind it. This draws emphasis to your center, rather than your shoulders. As a result, the large shoulders are no longer visible.

After that, there’s a conventional Brazilian bikini on the bottom. Why did I go for a classic surfer girl bikini? Because surfer girls have undergone extensive training. Frequently, they are inverted triangles. That’s the type of bikini that suits great on them because it has a hip effect and the tie knots provide volume to the sides. It’s ideal for you.

A light print can be added on top of that, but it’s not required.


This is the most frequent body type for women all across the world. The hips are the widest portion of a pear woman’s body.

“I have a significant problem,” pear females sometimes comment, “I’m one size bigger in pants than I am in tops and shirts.” In terms of swimwear, this isn’t an issue because the top and bottom may be purchased separately.

So that is exactly what we will do.

If you don’t feel comfortable revealing your hips, the idea is to draw attention to your bust rather than your hips.

Choose a bottom that covers your hips well enough to be comfortable. Because black is slimming, make it black. There is no print, and it is quite basic.

All of the drama is taking place at the top.

Consider a bandeau, which creates a horizontal impression and expands the bust area. It might have a yellow braided thing on it. It could be made of metal or a different material. All of the activity should take place on the chest; there is a lot going on at the top, and everyone’s attention is drawn there.

Wear something with embellishments, fringes, ruffles, different textures, or anything that sparkles or moves if you want to add even more to the top.

More Tips

Colors are always important in clothes, even swimsuits.

Remember that black slims you down, purple is elegant, red is eye-catching (it draws the eye first), and neon colors look wonderful when you’re tanned.

Prints always attract the eye more than a solid color. If you want people to notice your breasts because you like them, wear a print on the top and a solid color on the bottom. In the opposite case, if you enjoy your bum and want people to notice it, the print should be on your bottom.

Consider a top that appears like a bralette, going down below the breasts but tight, with boning, padding in the cups, and is properly fitting if a section of your body is not symmetrical with the rest, such as if you had breast surgery, a child, or a surgery anywhere.

You can use a zipper because it fits better and provides adequate support, which is exactly what you require.

Everything I wrote in this article is a possibility, not a requirement.

If you’re a pear who adores her hips, flaunt them. Then swap to inverted triangle bikini bottoms. And so forth.
