Bikini's and Swimwear For Different Body Types

Hey Everyone, 
it's coming up to holiday season and everyone wants the perfect bikini to lounge by the pool in. So I've come up with my guide to the perfect swimwear for different body types...

Smaller Bust
Your lucky as you can pretty much wear anything. If your looking to give the appearance of a bigger bust wearing frills and detailed bikinis can help to add curves. Also in recent years padded swimwear has become really popular, and there's plenty out there designed to maximise cleavage.

Larger Bust
You can also wear anything its personal choice really so wear what your comfortable in. If your looking for supportive swimwear there are now plenty available with under-wire. There's always the halterneck option, and if you find one with larger straps it will be more supportive. However swimwear with a clasp is always better than tie ups because we all know jumping in the pool can create disasters with bikinis that have a habit of coming undone.

Fuller Figure
People always believe that swimwear for the fuller is unfashionable, well not any more there are so many options for fuller figures. Firstly Tankini's are amazing for fuller figures as they are still a two piece which breaks up the figure and also covers the tummy. Also if you can find one with ruching, pleating or twisted fabric this can really help slim a tummy as the fabric skims over it. 
One pieces are back in and they don't have to be boring or mummy like there's loads, but try to stay away from large patterns unless paneled as they just highlight everything you don't want them too. Panels are great for breaking up the figure. Don't forget that like control underwear which has become popular in recent years so has control/Slimming swimwear. Lastly why should you miss out if you want a two piece/ bikini high-waisted bottoms are huge this season and they can help to hold in a tummy and slim it down.

Slimmer Figure
Bikinis, one piece, tankini's you can wear whatever you want adding pattern adds drama and the appearance of curves but remember pattern draws the eye in, so a broken pattern in the right places is better than an all over pattern. If you've got the confidence you could also wear any types of cut out swimwear which has been popular for the past few years. Lastly swimwear with frills can add the illusion of curves so if you want your hips to appear curvier wear a frill around the middle.
