Tip: Always choose something that cinches in the waistline or draws attentions to your curves
Why not try the Curvy Kate Horizon’s halterneck bikini – the block red and stripe detail is a perfect mix… not too over the top to draw attention away from your gorgeous curves. The halter neck style is perfect for this shape as it highlights your assets on top.
Top £34, Tie-Side Brief £17
If you want something with a bit more coverage then try the Freya Fever swimwear – the belt detail cinches in your waistline, drawing attention to your hourglass shape.
Tip: Always choose something with more detail on top or side panels on the bottom
I’d recommend the Fanatasie Costa Rica Bandeau Bikini – The horizontal stripes gives the illusion that your wider on top, which is perfect to even out the pear shape. With a block colour brief this draws attention away from your bottom half with most of the focus up top.
Top £ 21.95, Brief £9.95
For more support you can try the Panache Tallulah bikini and high waist brief – the panelling detail on the brief would also give the illusion of a smaller waist.
Top £32, High Waist Brief £22.50
Tip: Always choose something with panels to the sides or a mixture of prints on the top and bottom and a darker block colour in the middle
For an apple shape who wants to show off your curves in all the right places – why not try the Panache Tallulah Swimsuit – the flattering shaping panels gives a smaller appearance while enhancing your curves and providing support. The block colour on the sides makes the eye focus on the print detailing creating the illusion of a shapely figure.
If you’re after a two piece why not try the Freya Calypso Tankini – the floral detail on the straps and brief catches the eye leaving the slimming black to hide the midriff.
Top £27.95, Brief £11.95
Tip: Always choose something with print detailing or light and dark vertical panels
The Gossard Egoboost Swimsuit would be perfect for your shape – the heavy print detail and plunging style is striking and draws attention to your top half and your legs giving an overall flattering look.
For a two piece set that gives the illusion of a shapely figure try the Kris Line Labyrinth Halter Bikini – Halter necks are great for giving shape to your top half but the mixture of black and white panels on this set adds shape naturally.
Top £16.95, Brief £9.95
