LET US HELP YOU FIND YOUR SHAPE
HIPS & BUST ARE ALMOST OF EQUAL SIZE WITH A NARROWER WAIST
- Fuller bust or fuller circumference
- Fuller thighs
- Rounded bottom & hips
- Fuller tummy
- Waist definition
Look for styles and fabrics that reduce bulk and prevent boxiness. Stick with soft fabrics that contour your silhouette. Avoid bottoms with too many details at the hips. Structured & supportive pieces will help to keep all your assets in place. It will also help your posture & comfort level. Styles with a retro look will easily complement your curves & silhouette.
CURVIER TOP & BOTTOM WITH A DEFINED WAIST
- Defined bust
- Defined waist
- Figure more toned
- Neat bottom & hips
Aim to wear shaped and fitted styles that follow your body lines. It will be to your advantage to highlight your assets by choosing items that define your waist, enhance your bust and sit nicely on your hips & bottom. This classic feminine shape is usually the most flexible when it comes to choosing swimwear as it fits a wide variety of styles and shapes.
YOUR HIPS ARE NOTICEABLY WIDER THAN YOUR SHOULDERS
- Fuller hips or thighs
- Defined waist
- Shoulders are narrower than your hips
- A small top half
You need to balance your top half with your lower half by choosing styles that make your shoulders look broader. Wear volume, pattern, colour on your top half, so hips and thighs will seem narrower.
SHOULDERS ARE NOTICEABLY WIDER THAN YOUR HIPLINE
- Hips narrower than shoulders
- Little definition between waist & hips
- Straight & squared shoulder line
- Most athletic-looking silhouette
- Bust may be smaller or fuller
We suggest adding more volume and width around your hipline and thighs while keeping it simple at the top. Don’t be scared to play with a mixture of prints, bold & light colours to achieve a well balanced outfit. Halters & swimsuits attached at the back of the neck will help enhance your frame. Your broader shoulders allow you to pull off cute tanks that will hold well in place for you.
YOUR HIPS AND SHOULDERS ARE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME WIDTH
- Straight shoulder line
- Straight hips & bottom
- Very little waist definition
- Small bust
- Athletic silhouette
This silhouette gives you the possibility to wear a variety of styles. You need to create a good balance between your top & bottom. Hip and bottom details are good, as long as they create gentle curves. Another trick is to keep your silhouette sleek by choosing simple, form fitting garments.
FULLER MIDDLE WITH SLIM THIGHS AND UPPER SHAPELY LEGS
- Round shoulder line
- Slimmer legs
- Average to fuller bust
- Fullness around the middle
For a fuller bust, go with supportive wire tops. For a smaller bust, you may choose some push-up styles to elongate your torso. One-pieces with shirring details & tummy control will work well for you. Some may appreciate higher-waisted bottoms to create a comfortable support for the tummy, while others might prefer to go with regular bottoms to elongate the body frame.
TOP & BOTTOM HAVE SIMILAR CIRCUMFERENCE TO THE WAIST
- Hips slightly broader than shoulders
- Full mid section
- Broader thighs
- Great lower legs
Look for swimsuits that will enhance your bust & support your tummy and hips. Draw more attention to your bust with ruffles, padding or embellishments at the top while keeping your bottom sleeker. One-pieces or tankinis with waist defining details such as casings or shirring will give your frame a nice, balanced look.
