We have all worked so hard to get our bodies in shape and to attain a healthy summer glow with simple self-tanning regimens. Ladies, it is time to face the music and start flaunting what we got! Whether you are curvy, boyish, petite, tall, or pear shaped, have an apple bottom or a barely there booty, bikini season is not the time to hate our shapes. Instead, I have some tips from Self.com to help you find the perfect bikini that will flatter your shape. Bikini season from now on the season to love what we have and unleash our inner beach goddesses!
If You’re Curvy
Make sure your lady parts are covered; do not be afraid to go up a size. You want to make sure your suit isn’t digging in to your sexy curves. They should look smooth. Try a bustier styled suit that will give you the appropriate support. Pair it with a full coverage bottom that has a higher cut to elongate your legs. Then, go ahead show off what your mama gave you!
Post-baby body? Freshman 15? Not to worry! There are plenty of suits out there to flatter trouble spots. Try a sultry one piece with cut out sides and a deep v-neck. A suit like this will cover any undesired pooch while distracting onlookers from noticing it. Not a fan of cutouts? Try a suit that has ruching on the sides or a flirty retro-styled one to create a smaller-looking middle.
Need a Little Help
If you are lacking in the chest area, try a bikini with a little extra texture, added padding, horizontal stripes, bold prints, or under wires on the top. This will help create the illusion of curves. Use this same concept for your bottoms to create some booty.
Petite and Proud
Being 5’4”, I have learned how to flatter my body and embrace my petite stature. High cut bottoms will elongate legs, as mentioned before, and a pattern such as zigzags will lengthen short torsos. Enhance your curves with an embellished bikini, think sequins!
