But, before you start scrolling through the cutest bikinis ever, did you know certain bikinis and swimsuits are a better match for certain body types? With the correct bikini for your body type, you can enhance and diminish parts of your body that you like or dislikes, making you feel better about yourself!

Bikini Guide – what bikini suits your body type the best?

Before we start, keep in mind that the most important thing is for you to LOVE the bikini, if a specific bikini isn’t the best match for your body type, use it anyway – it’s much easier to be confident in a clothing piece you love rather than something you dislike.

We don’t want to divide your body into body types like hourglass-figure, pear-shaped, apple-shaped, etc., Simply because bodies are much more diverse than that. A pear-shaped person doesn’t necessarily have a small chest, an hourglass-figure might have a small bum, all body figures have different heights, and amounts of muscles and fat. We’re way too different to be placed in boxes, and that’s FANTASTIC!

Let’s start with choosing a bikini top suitable for your upper body:

Small chest:

Different versions of bandeau/bow tops are a great match for you, it’s TONS of stylish bandeau bikinis out there (and on our list). The best thing about having a small chest is how comfortable it is, just like with a bandeau top. You can also use regular push-up bikini bras!

Medium chest:

In general, you can use anything you’d like. You look especially good in bandeau, triangle, v-wire bikinis, or some sort of “regular” bikini bra.

Big chest:

You should stay away from bandeau types of bikini tops since they in general, unfortunately, won’t give you enough support. Choose v-wire bikinis, plunge, or bra-bikini tops that give you support. It’s so many nice bikinis in these shapes! Try to choose bikinis with straps over your shoulders. We will get back to colors, but try to stick to plain colors if you’d like to “minimize” the chest area, or choose vivid colors or patterns if you’d like to enhance your bigger bust.

Additional:

If you have a thin/petite or pyramid-shaped upper body, it’s great to choose bikini tops with florals or ruffles, to add a little volume and a feminine touch. If you have a masculine figure with wide shoulders, choose ruffles and florals, in addition to choosing bikini tops WITH traditional straps over shoulders – this is because those straps add an additional feminine touch.

Choosing a bikini bottom suitable for your lower body:

Everyone should choose a high-waisted bikini bottom, it looks SO much better than short-waisted bottoms. High-waisted bikini bottoms give the illusion of long beautiful legs, a smaller waist, a more toned body, and it hides the lower stomach.

If you on the other hand would like your legs to appear shorter, aim for short-waisted bottoms.

What kind of high-waisted bikini bottom to choose, is up to you –

If you want to diminish your stomach and bum, aim for the high-waisted hipster bikini bottom.

And if you want to enhance your booty, choose high waisted brazilian/tanga bottoms.

If you want to stay neutral, choose “regular” high waisted bikinis, like most of the bikinis on the list below.

What color should you choose?

Very pale skin

Stay away from all nude colors, light colors, and yellow. These will make you look paler. Your skin looks best with bikinis in deep, dark colors, like black, navy blue, deep brown, red or purple, and emerald green.

Fair skin

Like very pale skin, you should avoid nude colors. Your skin looks great in deep and dark colors, especially red! If you are able to get a tan, you can also choose lighter colors like pastels, pink or blue.

Golden/Medium skin

You can choose anything you want! Warm shades makes your skin tone warmer and more golden.

Dark skin

You are lucky, you can literally use any color you want.

Additional

Keep in mind that vivid colors and patterns draws attention, and plain colors and patterns does the opposite.
