Pear shapes, tend to have delicate slim shoulders, a small waist and curves around the hips and bum - picture Beyoncé & J-Lo, these are a couple of celebrities with this natural body shape.
We recommend the best bikinis for pear shaped bodies, are triangle bikini tops with thin straps and bottoms with high cuts. As this will help to elongate your figure, creating an illusion that you’ve got longer legs. Making you look taller whilst accentuating your curves and drawing attention to your slim waist.
We believe the swimsuits listed below are perfect for this body shape:
Apple body shapes tend to have slimmer hips with a fuller bust and curvier diaphragm.
When looking for the most flattering swimsuits for apple shapes, it’s vital to find bikinis/ one pieces with support for large bust. We recommend thick straps & underwire bikini tops.
The most flattering swimwear look you want to try and create with your body is a slim waist. High waisted bikinis are perfect as well as one Piece’s and scoop or low necklines with built in tummy control.
We recommend the following
