What you wear to the beach or around the pool is entirely your choice. It is up to you to choose what you feel most comfortable in and what suits the activities that you are going to be participating in. If you are simply relaxing on a sunbed for eight hours then any type of bikini will help you to get the tan that you are aiming for. If on the other hand, you are on a jet ski, scuba diving or paragliding you may feel more confident in a one piece swimsuit.
Toning up your figure before you hit the beach is a great thing to do if it will make you feel more confident. You will find many exercise programs online that claim that they can give you the perfect beach body. Check out this website to make sure that you are choosing a program that actually works and that will suit you.
It is also true, that some swimsuit styles suit some body shapes better. If you want to make the most of the figure that you have, you may want to pick a swim suit that suits your body shape. If you are not sure what your body shape is, or if it has changed, you can get a lot of help here.
Here are some tips for choosing the right swimsuit for you.
Pear shape figures
If you have wider and curvy hips and thighs but a slimmer top you need a swimsuit that will balance your proportions and give you the coverage that you need for the lower part of your body. An all-in-one swim suit with colour-blocking and chic stripes will balance your figure and draw the eye upwards and away from your hips. A bikini with a sporty crop top and low-cut briefs will have the effect of making your body look longer and slimmer.
Your other option is to select a swimsuit with a sharp V that plunges towards the navel and if you can find one with ruching at the waist it will really show off your curves.
Large bust figures
If you have a larger bust, it is vital that you have enough support. When you’re looking for a swimsuit, look for one that is underwired or that has molded cups. Try to avoid frills and ruffles as they will simply accentuate your chest size.
Bra-style bikini tops always work well as they usually have adjustable and thicker straps. Higher backs are also a great choice.
Small bust figures
Figures with a smaller chest need styles that are minimal and preferably have some form of decoration such as bows and ruffles to create the illusion of a larger chest area. Bold and striking patterns have the same effect. Look out for triangle tops because they will create the illusion of curves. Bikini tops that are padded or in a push-up style are readily available these days and will create a cleavage for you. You get to wear the fabulous tiny scoop tops or bandeaus because they will suit your figure perfectly.
