BigNews.Biz - Apr 13,2012 - How to Choose the Best Swimsuit for Your Body Type
You don't have to be a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model in order to look fabulous on the beach. The key to the sexy swimsuit look is finding a swimsuit that best compliments your body type. Read on for some helpful tips. Does this Spark an idea?
KNOW your body type. There are generally four body types: straight-figure, pear shape, apple shape and the hourglass shape.
STRAIGHT-figure. Okay, you don't have curves. No problem. Choose a bathing suit that adds emphasis to your hip and bust area. A bathing suit with ruffles, ties or other embellishments will do the trick.
PEAR-shape. In this instance, you carry more weight in the hips, thighs and legs. What you want to do is draw attention above the waist. Buy a swimsuit with a lower neckline. Also look for bright colors on the top of the swimsuit.
APPLE-shape. If you have this body, you have a larger upper-body and fuller breasts. Buy a bathing suit with straps and patterns. Also consider a halter-top style swimsuit. Make sure the swimsuit provides added breast support.
HOURGLASS-shape. You have a curvy upper and lower body. Look for swimsuits with adjustable straps and halters. Wear bathing suits with a matching top and bottom or solid colors. One-piece bathing suits work well also.
