Reversed triangle 

Are your shoulders broader than your hips and are you fuller at the top than at the bottom? Then these tips will help you on your way to the perfect bikini!

Dos 

A top with straight straps will make your shoulders look smaller.

A top in a dark colour will accentuate your body perfectly.

Eye-catching bottoms will draw attention away from your broader shoulders.

Don’ts  

A halter top bikini will make your shoulders stand out.

Narrow spaghetti straps will make your shoulders wider.

Bandeau bikinis will emphasise the width of your shoulders

Hourglass

Lucky you! You have the figure that every woman envies. You have a narrow waist, slightly wider hips and a good pair of shoulders. You can actually wear everything, but these tips will ensure you make the best choice!

Dos 

High waist bottoms will emphasise your perfect waistline.

A triangle bikini or one with a halter top will place more accent on your figure, making your curves stand out even more.

Are you more into swimsuits? A swimsuit with vertical stripes will do the most justice to your figure.

Don’ts 

Be careful with extra deep décolletés.

Low bottoms will draw attention to the widest part of your body (and we don't want that!)   

A halter top in a size too small will do nothing for your figure..

Is your volume mainly around the upper body? Do you also have full breasts, broad shoulders and an indistinct waistline? Then these are the bikini tips for you!

Dos  

A bandeau top will ensure that you don’t emphasise your breasts. 

Prefer covering up more? Wear higher bottoms to accentuate the narrowest part of your waist.  

Bikini bottoms in bright colours or with a nice print look especially good on you.  

Don’ts 

A halter top will emphasise your breasts.

Small, low-cut bottoms will emphasise the widest part of your body.   

Small prints or horizontal stripes will make you look taller than you really are.

Extra tips for the perfect bikini for your figure: 

If you have darker skin, bright colours will look great on you.

Do you have paler skin? Then choose darker colours such as black, burgundy, brown or dark blue.  

You can create more volume at your bottom or breasts by adding ruffles or frills to your bikini or swimsuit.

Halter and triangle bikini tops emphasise the breasts.   

You can emphasise the pros of your figure by wearing colours and/or patterns.  

If you want to hide something, go for a dark, solid colour.

High-cut bottoms will make your legs look longer.  

Your breasts will appear larger & broader in a bandeau bikini top.

 

It doesn't matter what shape you are because every body is a bikini body!
