Let’s face it, an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini looks good on approximately .02 percent of the population. Luckily, for the rest of us mere mortals, there are one-pieces, tankinis, cut-outs, halter-tops, high-waisted bottoms… the list could go on and on. Not sure what type of swimsuit is right for you? We’ve rounded up the hottest styles of the season—from flirty bikinis to sporty one-pieces—for every body type and lifestyle.
If you are pear shaped (curvy at the hips and thighs and smaller on top):
Featuring underwire support plus an adjustable neckline, you can jump waves in this floral number without worry of a wardrobe malfunction!
Ditch the long strands of gold chains—this halter-style swimsuit with stunning circle centerpiece is all you need.
Looking for a swimsuit that’s sexy, but also practical. Look no more.
If you have a large bust (and require more support):
Halter-top ties offer ample support and keep your cleavage at bay.
To avoid sagging, choose a style with underwire like this fierce leopard one by Gottex.
Cinching near the center of the bust line creates definition and offers support.
If you have a small bust (and fall more into the A-cup & B-cup range):
Tiered flutter panels create the illusion of a larger chest.
One of the perks of having a smaller chest—bandeau tops. Go underwire-free without worry!
Triangle tops create instant curves and ruffles add that extra oomph.
If you are curvy (full bust, hips and thighs):
To create definition in your waistline, choose a style with side panels.
You’ve got curves—great! Now flaunt them with a plunging v-neck and wrap around top.
Sometimes the sexiest amount of skin is just a sliver. Best of all, this suit allows you to control just how much you show.
