Hello my awesome ladies!

We are in June, the sun is shining and soon, you will sunbath on a transat, sipping  an exotic cocktail.

But before anything else, you will have the difficult challenge to find the right swimsuit!

I know, it’s not an easy exercise and, lots of women failed for choosing the ideal cut.

So, with these tips, you’ll find the best swimsuit for your body shape.

Here are some tips for choosing the best swimsuit.

The Pear aka the triangle

Your goal when shopping your shape is to elongate your figure; so that you look less bottom heavy.

I recommend to enhance to your top half with flutter top or fringe top which do just that!

My advice : Emphasize top half and play down your bottom half.

The Apple

Women with apple-shaped figures are generally bigger up top and smaller on the bottom.

My advice : Take the emphasis away from your top half by opting for a plain top with a patterned bottom.

Choose thick straps and show off your legs.

The Hour-glass

With  hourglass figures, you can get away with a number of different cuts.

My advice : Find a style that fits with your top and bottom. Avoid mix and match that can make your body disproportional.

The Athletic aka the Rectangle

Women with athletic figures are generally non-curvy with narrow hips, they generally have very straight figures.

Frills, embellishments, and gathering can help to create the optical illusion of curves.

The inverted triangle

Avoid patterns on the top, especially horizontal.

Emphasize on  your bottom half with gathers, ruffles, and shirring to give the illusion of curvy, wider hips to balance out your shoulders.

My last but not least advice : Make sure you’re feeling confident and in good spirits.

How you’re feeling on the inside counts as much as the outside!
