Which shape most defines you?

Which shape most defines you

Rectangle Shape

This popular athletic type usually consists of a long torso, slim chest and a straight up and down-like figure. Go for bold colors, sexy ruffles, unique prints and color blocked suits to give the appearance of a more defined waistline and desired curves.  Plunging necklines enhance the bust and bottom, streamlining your figure and showcasing an accentuated silhouette.

Inverted Triangles

Inverted triangle figures have shoulders and busts that are wider than the hips, often making their shape appear somewhat unbalanced. Add some extra character and stature in the thigh area by choosing a brightly colored bottom or print-infused one-piece. Halter tankini tops and mismatched bottoms will create a more proportional look. Avoid bandeaus or strapless styles as they tend to draw more attention towards the bust and neckline.

Hourglass Shape

This classic shape seems to be the most popular and preferred amongst women. Hourglass shapes tend to have a fuller chest and a smaller waist. Your upper and lower halves are aligned, while most of your weight is distributed evenly throughout your body. One piece swimsuits will work best to show off your amazing curves. Look for swimwear with an underwire bra or a halter top. Avoid wearing mix-matched tops and bottoms as well as bandeau and strapless styles, as they can make you look disproportional and draw attention towards non-favored areas.

Triangle Shape

Triangle shapes hold a majority of the weight in their hips and thighs, making them appear much wider than other parts of the body. Narrow shoulders and a slim, defined waist may be properly balanced by bolder prints towards the neckline and décolletage. Halter top styles with molded cups give the look of a fuller bust; this will help balance out your lower body. Draw attention away from your backside and casually enhance the bust with a plunging neckline.

Rounded Shape

A rounded, or apple-shaped body, has a fuller chest and may appear top heavy, as if there is no waist. Accentuate your best features by drawing more attention to your legs and lower half of your body. Find a bathing suit that gives you bra-like support with underwire or molded cups. Thick straps will make your shoulders appear smaller and provide more support.  Swimsuits with gathered fabric around the waist give a flattering divide between the chest and hips. High cut bottoms will show off your legs. Avoid busy, bright colors as they create an unwanted illusion of bulk in the thighs.
