Stylist Alexis Honce gives us tips on how to find the right swimsuit for our body shape. 


Busty
  • Look for a bikini with built in bra, this lifts and contours the chest making you look thinner up top.
  • Look for fabrics with lots of hold (lycra) to help shape.
  • Always wear darker colors on top.
  • No ruffles or accents in the bust area that can add volume.
  • Always buy a suit with straps as this gives support.

Pear Shape
 
  • Goal is to add volume on chest to balance the hips. Ruffles, patterns, colors draw the eye up.
  • Boy cut bottoms for coverage.
  • Deep v-neckline makes shoulders look wider and lengthens chest

Rectangle
 
  • Goal is to create curves.
  • Add volume on top and bottom with ruffles, embroidery. Halter top also creates curves. 
  • Patterns and prints can work amazingly well with this body type.
  • Want to avoid solid color one piece.
  • Coloured trim on neckline and waist gives contour.

Tummy
  • Solid colours are a must; dark colours are best 
  • Add volume on top with trim or colour blocking.
  • V-neck lengthens chest and brings the eye upward.
  • High cut bottoms lengthen leg.
  • Need built in bra so that it lifts your chest away from tummy and gives separation.
