Spring has sprung and it is time to start looking for the perfect swim style for you! We love to help our clients wade through the racks and find a bikini with just the right fit. However, not all of you can make it into one of our five shops to work with our team of swim specialists, so we are making this blog all about styles your frame will look foxy in!
Rectangle Shape aka Straight Shape: While you might not have a ton of curves going on, more people have your body type than any other! Think Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, and Uma Thurman. The best bikini bets for you are ones that create some curve illusions. We love the L-Space “Audrey Halter” top paired with the L-Space “Monique” bottoms.
Pear Shape: While you may have smaller top, your booty is banging! You are looking like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Christina Aguilera. You may wear a smaller top and larger bottom. Separates are key for you! We love to draw attention to your bottom half with the “Mali Flip” bottom by Vix and the “Mali Bandeau” by Vix.
Hourglass Shape: You have curves on top and bottom, and a smaller waist. If you wear a medium top, you’ll also most likely wear a medium bottom. Penelope Cruz, Jessica Simpson and Hailey Barry all have your curves going on! No one can wear Luli Fama like you! We love the “Cosita Buena Triple Strap” rouched bottom with the “Cosita Buena Twist Front” bandeau top.
Oval Shape aka Apple Shape: You rock a look shared by Jennifer Hudson, Drew Barrymore and Kate Winslet. You have broad shoulders and a larger chest with smaller legs and thighs. A top with support is key, our FAVORITE for all time is Body Glove’s “Smoothies Body Love” top with cross back paired with “Smoothies Brasilia Rider” bottom.
Wedge Shape aka Sporty Shape: You workout and it shows! Wider shoulders than hips and waist, with defined muscles. Jennifer Aniston, Carissa Moore and Jessica Biel look on in envy when you hit the beach. Your bikini needs to stay in place while you play… try the “Love and Surf” cross back top by Rip Curl and the “Daisy Maisy” scrunch side hipster bottoms by Hobie.
We hope this handy guide helps you get in the mood to dive into swim!!
