Best Swimsuits for Your Body Type

Summer is here and swimsuit season is in full force. At Cliché, we know finding the best swimsuits for your body type isn’t as easy as it should be. We’ve compiled a  guide of envy worthy swimsuits that are bound to turn heads for all the right reasons.
If you carry your weight in your midriff, the best way to camouflage an unwanted tummy is with a ruched tankini. A fun geometric print is ideal as it keeps the eye busy and doesn’t focus on your midsection. Accentuate your bust with a plunging V neck to bring attention to your chest and off your tummy.

For ladies with a fuller chest, it is all about support. A halter top is sure to give you the necessary support you need. Thicker straps won’t cut into your shoulders and wearing printed bottoms will draw the eye downward.

Finding a swimsuit that doesn’t overwhelm your small frame is key for petite body types. A swimsuit that ties together is your best friend. Too many times we’ve fallen prey to saggy butt syndrome, but with an adjustable bikini bottom, it gives you control of how loose or tight you want your bottoms to fit. Incorporate details like ruffles or fringe that add attention to areas that you want to highlight which gives the illusion of a fuller bust or bum.

Ruffles are also perfect for those with a boxy shape. The volume created by ruffles gives the appearance of a shapely frame. Mix things up with a bandeau top or a one piece with cutouts around your waist.

If you have a fuller derriere, high cut bikinis are the perfect item for you to show off your bootylicious curves this summer. Steer clear of boy short bottoms that have an unflattering cut at the thighs. Get a little funky and try a retro bikini or if you want to show more skin, try a string bikini.

Most importantly, the best requirement for looking good this summer is having confidence. So shake up your swimsuit collection, find the look that makes you feel great, and strut your stuff at the beach.
