Swimsuits for Summer
the best fitting Swimsuit
What fit is best fit? Start with the basics of
This must fit just under the bust, firm enough to support you.
Your swimsuit should be long enough to stay put when you walk. It
will ride up if it is not long enough. Stand, sit, bend and walk
to ensure that the suit is comfortable.
Your swimsuit must fit comfortably right round each leg, cupping
your bottom and not riding up.
These must not cut in or sag.
5) Back, Crotch and Underarm
If the suit cuts, bulges or rides up, try a different style or
larger size. If it droops, try a smaller size.
Styles to suit your shape
Find the right style - one that flatters and enhances your
looks. A suitable silhouette can actually disguise figure
1) Long Body
Choose styles with waist bust seams, high legs and low necklines
to reduce body length. Avoid verticals.
Fool the eye with fabric or styling that pulls the eye away from
the tummy. Look for styles that have front power net lining.
3) No Waist
Look for styles that create an illusion of a waist. Try mitred
vees, crossovers or central panels. Avoid plains or bikinis.
4) Small Bust
Emphasizing contours will visually enhance the bust-line. Bold
prints or colours will flatter. Avoid straight across bandeaux.
5) Large Hips
Draw attention away from the hips to the top half of your body.
Choose styles with bust details, vertical stripes or dark colours.
6) Short Body
Vertical stripes or prints will make the body look longer. Lower
necklines and plunging necklines will elongate the body.
7) Large Bust
Pay attention to support, comfort coverage and details that will
deflect the eye from the bust-line. Try underwires, cups,
sweethearts and crossovers.
8) Large Sizes
Strong bold prints will break up the body line. Vertical and
mitred stripes, crossovers and skirts will help conceal. Use wide
straps for support.
