Two important points to remember: it can’t be done in a rush and it can’t be done alone. Always take someone you trust completely with you. Make sure you can ask them honesty what they think? There is no point taking a girlfriend who won’t tell you that your bum looks like it’s been given a fat injection or your breasts look all flat and shapeless in that bikini top. Here’s the go:
Curvy J.Lo kind of gals – Go for a singlet top with regular bikini bottoms. Don’t go string bikini’s or anything too risquZ -they will end up making your gorgeous curves look rounder. Play them down and they will look great.
The round bottom – If you’re conscious of your bum, then the best look is the boy-leg board shorts that are baggy. Looks fantastic on a girl with a larger derriere. Team them up with a fitted lycra singlet. This look will balance everything out and you’ll feel confident.
The flat chested gal – Go for the padded bikini top with string bikini bottoms. Or a triangular shaped bikini with bikini bottoms -a la Kate Moss.
Got short legs? – Don’t worry because the answer is spaghetti side bikini bottoms. They will make your legs look longer.
Big Bazookas? – nothing looks better than a halter-style top, but remember to match the bottom to the top. Don’t do it Sarah-Marie style – remember to retain a little mystery girls. The halter-top looks stunning with bigger panties -a la Marilyn Monroe – now we’re talking real style!
Tom Boy shape -or stick thin? Well first of all, we envy you, but if you do have that metabolism where you’re just all straight up and down, go tomboy-style with boy leg bottoms. Wear a very fitted style singlet top with them. Sporty, lean and you’re lucky!
The Pear shape– go for a singlet-style bikini top but wear a standard bikini bottom because the top half will help emphasise the rest of your body. It’s all about balance and it’s all an optical illusion!
