How to Choose Right Swimsuit

How to Choose Right Swimsuit – Dazzled by the plethora of swimwear options for next swimming planning? Not sure where to even begin in your search for that perfect beachwear? A simple way to narrow down your choices is to consider your body type. Everyone is beautifully unique, but we can generally categorize body shapes into five distinct types. Let's explore these body types and Shapellx shaper swimsuit styles.

What's Your Body Type?

Typically, your body type is identified based on the relationship of your shoulder/bust, waist, and hips measurements, which can be approximated into a shape. The five types we'll look into are apple, pear, athletic, hourglass, and rectangle.

  • Apple body type – Wider bust and waist than the hips.
  • Pear body type – Wider hips than waist and bust.
  • Athletic body type – Wider shoulders with straight waist and hips.
  • Hourglass body type – Equal bust and hips with a well-defined waist.
  • Rectangle body type – Similar bust, waist, and hips.

Although it's unlikely that anyone can be perfectly categorized into one of these types, they do provide some helpful guidance for choosing shaping swimsuit that makes us feel confident and radiant.

How To Select a Swimsuit for Apple Body Type

Having an apple body type means that you have a wider bust and waist, and sometimes shoulders, compared to your hips.

Highlight your hips with patterned bottoms or side-ties.

Deep necklines and halter tops can create the illusion of slimmer shoulders and torsos.

Pair a tankini top with high-waisted bottoms for a flattering midriff.

The pear or 'triangle' body type describes women who have wider hips with relatively smaller bust and narrower shoulders. To achieve balance, you may want to shift focus to your upper half.

Emphasize your natural curves with tops featuring bold patterns, intricate designs, padded cups, and deep necklines.

For bottoms, lean towards slimming solid colors and darker tones.

High-cut bottoms can make your legs seem longer.

Selecting a swimsuit for an Athletic Body Type

Smart Sculpt U-Ring Cut Out Shaping Swimsuit

Sometimes referred to as an 'inverted triangle,' athletic body types usually have wider shoulders with a straight waist and hips.

Balancing this type involves pairing plain tops with ornate bottoms.

Deep necklines and padded cups can downplay wide shoulders and accentuate the chest.

Flashy bottoms can draw the eye to your legs and hips.

Choosing a swimsuit for an Hourglass Body Type

The hourglass figure is characterized by evenly balanced bust and hips, and a distinctly defined waist.

With an hourglass body type, you can decide which area you want to accentuate.

Selecting a Bikini for a Rectangle Body Type

Rectangle body types have an even silhouette, with the bust, waist, and hips measurements almost similar.

Skimpier triangle style tops and side-tie bottoms suit slimmer rectangle bodies.

One-piece swimsuits with side cut-outs can create the illusion of a more cinched waist.

Audacious patterns, colors, ruffles, and frills add volume to your bust and hips.
