It can be quite difficult to choose the perfect swimsuit as there are so many options on the market but by going by certain guidelines, you will be able to choose a swimsuit that is both comfortable and flattering.
You need to first know your body shape when it comes to choosing swimwear that suits your figure. For example, if you have an hourglass figure with a well defined waist line, you will find that many swimsuit styles work great on you such as bikinis, one piece suits, high waisted bottoms etc. If you have a narrow upper body with wider hips, this means you have a pear body shape. You have to choose swimsuits that bring attention to the upper part of your body and this can be done by choosing bottoms that have simple designs or darker colours. You have to choose tops that are patterned or have embellishments so that they stay out. If you have weight in the midsection, this is called an apple shaped body and you need to look for swimsuits that offer sufficient coverage in this area. You can choose a one piece suit for this or a tankini that come with ruching.
Some people tend to have rectangular figures
And you need to look for swimsuits that can create the appearance of curves through the use of patterns ruffles and details on the hips and bust. If you have a narrow waist and broad shoulders, this is called an inverted triangle body shape and you can use swimsuits that come with more coverage at the bottom so that the proportions can be balanced. Choosing the colour of the swimsuit is also important. For this, you have to consider your skin tone as there are some colours that will complement you better. If you have a darker skin tone, you can wear vibrant colours like red, emerald green, electric blue etc. You can also wear pastels and earthy tones. Pastel colours can also be worn to complement lighter skin tones along with jewel tones such as amethyst, sapphire and ruby. Olive skin tones will do well with earthy colours such as deep turquoise and olive green. There are also those with medium skin tones that are lucky to enjoy a variety of colours complimenting their skin.
