TRENDING NOW: Suit Up: Swimwear FOR YOUR SHAPE

Picking a swimsuit can be a daunting task.  Making sure to check the list for what works for your shape, age, lifestyle, and budget can be overwhelming for sure. First and foremost, you MUST feel confident with the bathing suit you choose. We truly believe in our motto, “When you Look Good, You Feel Good.” Some ladies feel better in a 2-piece. Others in a 1-piece. We must encourage our lady friends to DO YOU. Only support given here! Follow below to learn more!

Apple Shape 

 

One-piece:

 

 

| ONE PIECE |

The one-piece is a great option for an apple shape to elongate and add definition. This one lengthens the legs with a higher cut leg opening. The abstract print is strategically placed to provide coverage on the belly’s fullest middle section while also creating the look of a smaller waist line on the sides.

Two-piece:
| TOP | BOTTOM |
When looking for a two-piece, a high waist that reaches above the fullest part of the midsection will draw the focus to the small of your waist. Gathering on the bottoms will also create a curve at your hip. And the ruffled top will draw the eye upwards.

 

Hourglass Shape 

 
One-piece:
| ONE PIECE |
The silhouette of this suit is a great option for the woman who leans toward an hourglass figure.  The wide straps and open neckline will provide support and coverage, while the wrap detail accentuates the waistline. The wrap detail defines the waist and draws the eye to the smallest part of the body.  The higher leg line will also help accentuate the waist and elongate the leg. This suit comes in solid colors and fun color blocking options depending on your personal style.
Two piece:
| TOP | BOTTOM |
For an hourglass, we love being able to find a two piece you can purchase by bra size vs traditional letter sizes.  That and the underwire in this suit will give you the coverage and fit needed.  The textured trend that is happening in bathing suits this year adds an elevated look to an otherwise traditional suit.  The bottoms on this suit are a high waist and belted to really define the hourglass’ small waist. Time to take a walk to the pool or book that last minute beach vacation!

Pear Shape

One-piece:
| ONE PIECE |
This is a great option for that individual with more of a triangle (pear) shape. The ruched bottom provides more coverage, while the sweetheart neckline and wider straps draw the eye up, bringing balance to the top of the swimsuit and body. The allover ruched detail takes the cake for allowing support and flattery throughout and emphasizing the middle.
Two-piece:
| TWO PIECE |
We love that Athleta allows you to shop by coverage, and then mix and match bottom and top types, prints, and colors depending on what may best flatter you and your shape! This two-piece is a great option for a fun, yet subtle printed suit. The bottom is still fuller coverage and higher-waisted, yet playful and fashion-focused. Keep your set matching, or go with solid black on the bottom and the print up top. Either way you’ll be ready for an afternoon in (or just by) the water!
