Swimsuits For Every Body Shape

Don’t bury your head in the sand – there IS a swimsuit out there for your body shape! Designers have gotten very clever this summer and no longer are the pretty prints resigned to model types. There’s great support for big boobs, sexy frills for little boobs and clever nips and tucks for creating a glamourous body whether you’re beachside or sipping cocktails by the pool.

Best For Pears – Wahine Poolside

The Poolside Moulded Tri Top, $50, has a comfortable band under the bust to provide good support while moulded cups create shape to balance out your lower area.

The Twist Diva Pant, $45, are slightly higher than most bikini bottoms so it tucks in the muffin top, while the twist detail detracts attention away from the thighs. Comes in black or macau plum.

Best For Big Boobs – Ginga Victoriana D/DD Cup Frill Bra

Big boobs are usually confined to boring fabrics but this print screams sexy and summer! The Victoriana D/DD bra, $90, comes with hidden underwire and side boning. There’s a good fit with the matching Frill Tie Side Pant, $65, hiding lumps and bumps.

Best For Even Bigger Boobs – Ginja Cabana Le Chic DD/E Cup Frill Singlet

You need plenty of support here and this gorgeous singlet, $130, has hidden underwire and boning. Fully lined, with adjustable convertible straps and flattering ruching at the tummy. Combine with the Frill Hipster Pant, $60 for a fabulous, not frumpy, look.

Best For Little Boobs – Baku Casablanca Frills

The feminine bandeau, $90, has a flutter frill designed to add volume to a small bust. It also comes with straps if strapless isn’t your style. The matching Frills Hipster Pant, $65, adds a raa-raa twist to boring bikini bottoms.

Best For Tall Girls – Nookie Margarita Monday Fullpiece

Fashionistas might do a double take expecting this one-piece to be a Missoni – but this Nookie version, $159.95, is a quarter of the price. So lovely you can wear this alone with denim shorts straight after a swim!

Best For Short Girls – Wahine Cherokee Marilyn Asymmetric One Piece

Absolutely loving this one piece, $119.95, that has an asymmetric strap that can be worn on one shoulder or tucked away for a strapless look. The gorgeous pattern flows vertically to add length to the body while the high cut leg elongates the leg.

Best For Super Skinny Girls – Seafolly Convent Garden

You can just imagine Marilyn in something like this can’t you? This halterneck one-piece, $149.95, has a deep V and soft cup bra to create a curvy bust, while the not-too-high leg looks great on the bottom.
