Best swimsuits for your best body

By Silhouettes1 · March 15, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Pattern, style and color can make a difference when choosing plus size swimwear, depending on your body type.

1. If you are heavier on the bottom and want to minimize your hips and conceal your thighs:

  • Choose swim dresses or swim skirts
  • Use dark colors for bottoms
  • Look for extra support (such as a full coverage brief)


Some examples of plus size bathing suits that could work for your body type:

2. If you have a large chest and/or are heavier on top, you’ll need a suit to support your bust and elongate your torso, so:

  • Buy V-neck lines, which draw the eye in a longer line
  • Surplice is great option to elongate the torso
  • Look for a built-in bra


3. If most of your weight is carried around your waist or tummy, look for suits that slim and shape the waist or with tummy control. Some ideas:

  • An overall pattern always distracts attention from the waist
  • Surplice is great way to slim down overall
