The Different Body Shapes And What Bikini Is The Best
Understanding the body shapes and swimsuit styles can make swimsuit shopping a lot easier and more rewarding.
Triangle Body Shape
A triangle body shape is where the bottom is heavier than the top. The trick is to add volume to your upper body and less emphasis on the hips. Choose a bikini with a ruffled top to draw attention to this area. You can also go for padded ones for more volume. Another good option is strapless bandeau bikini tops.
An inverted triangle body shape is one that has a broader shoulder than the hips while the waist has little to no definition. This body shape is like the V shape and the shoulder can be straight or athletic looking. For those with an inverted triangle shape, it means that the bust is bigger compared to the hips. It is best to choose a simple halter top with big straps that will illustrate your waist, balances out your body’s portions, and shows off your gorgeous legs. Darker color triangle tops with embellished bottoms or side ties work well too.
Hourglass Body Shape
An hourglass figure is the best figure where the silhouette is proportional and balanced. The key to choosing a swimsuit is to accentuate the waist and the great legs which are the best assets. This body shape is perfect for simple string bikinis or strapless bandeau tops with simple bottoms. Ruffled bikini sets can also accentuate your curves. Steer away from mixing and matching bikinis as they can make your body look unbalanced.
Rectangle Body Shape
If you have a rectangle body shape, this means that your body is slender and proportionate. A triangle-style top will add curves and volumes to your upper body. Types of bikini styles you should wear include light-colored bikinis, ruffled tops with bows or ties to add extra volume, or skirted/ruffled bottoms for more volume to the hips. Those with side ties are ideal too. Tank tops and halter bikinis work well on rectangle body types.
Spoon Shape Body
If your hips are much wider than your bust while the rest of your body has a ‘shelf-like appearance, this means that you have a spoon shape body. Your best assets? Well, they are your lower legs and arms. Therefore make sure you show them off. Pick a bikini that takes the attention away from your tummy and hips like embellished or ruffled tops.
