Top Seven Sexiest Bikinis

How to find the most flattering swimsuit for your body type

With summer on the horizon, it’s almost time to hit the beach and live out our latent dreams of being a swimsuit star. However, the first outing in a bikini is always a little daunting, especially when our beach bodies have been hiding under various layers for the past few months.

Looking toned and gorgeous in a swimsuit isn’t as hard as you may think; it’s all down to choosing the right bikini, and one that enhances your present figure at that!

Looking into a bikini bootcamp is a great way to get in shape, especially if you wish to work off those post winter pounds. A foolproof programme need only be followed for up to four weeks, and if you are willing to work hard, the end results will be astounding.

If you’re big chested…

If your top half is a little bigger than your bottom half, then mix and match separates and cleverly placed embellishments will flaunt your assets, all whilst hiding the bits you don’t want anyone to see. A structured swimsuit will enhance your curves, whilst gathered fabric at the waist will create a flattering split between the hips and chest.

If you’re small busted…

If like many you wish to elongate your frame and boost your bust, a patterned bikini complemented by high waisted briefs will play up both your bustline and make your legs appear as if they go on forever. Thankfully there are a number of cutesy bikinis on the market that match up to this description.

If You’re Pear Shaped…

If you’re conscious about your hips, yet wish to show off your enviable slim waist, a sexy and demure style is a must. Opt for a cutaway style in a colour that complements your skin tone and steer clear of horizontal patterns.

If You’re Plus Sized…

Plus sized ladies require a swimsuit that is both sexy yet practical. Sturdy straps and a bra that boasts extreme structure teamed with a sheer sarong make for the perfect holiday getup. A swim dress enhances cleavage, compliments curves and hides the thighs.

If You’re Athletic…

Sometimes athletic figures find it difficult to come to terms with their teenage physiques. Hips and a small bust make it hard to create a feminine look, however, vertical stripes and colour-block bikinis will add both substance and style. Fringed tops work well to create the illusion of a larger bust.

If You’re An Hourglass…

Hourglass figures boast hips equal to the bust, complemented by a tiny waist. Such a figure is able to don a variety of bikinis, all of which will show off your feminine curves.

The Inverted Triangle…

If you have small hips, a large chest and wide shoulders, then you have a top-heavy figure. Commonly referred to as the V-shape, this is a tricky figure to contend with. In order to create the illusion of an hourglass figure, opt for swimsuits that balance the top half with the bottom. Try teaming a string triangular tops with ruffled bottoms. Alternatively opt for bikini bottoms that boast a belt, embellishments or large prints – such a style will draw attention to your hips.
