A Bathing Suit for Every Body Type

By Shoshanna Gruss


Swimsuits Flattering on Every Figure: String Bikinis
String bikinis are great on all women. Since the tops and bottoms tie, it is easy to customize the fit to your curves.

I also love the colors and stripes on this Victoria’s Secret bikini—they give it such a retro 70s feel and really complement sun-kissed skin.

More Support for the Curvaceous Body Type: Halter Tops
If you are large on top and need more support, look for halter tops. They offer more coverage while securely holding you in place.

For sweet yet sexy, I love the heart print on this Victoria’s Secret bandeau bikini. And the bandeau plus halter top provides great support.

Extra Fabric for Extra Curves: Ruffles
If you are looking to enhance your curves, look for tops and bottoms with ruffles. They are great for creating the illusion of a fuller figure.

Bathing Suit Camouflage for a Flatter Tummy: Ruching
Not comfortable with your midsection? Pick up a one-piece with ruching to camouflage your middle and suck you in. Halter tops also draw the eye upward and flatter your collar bone.
