Bikinis for all body shapes

Bikinis are for everyone. If you have ever wanted to wear a bikini but didn't know what style to choose, we're here to help you. With inclusive sizes and a wide variety of styles, wearing a bikini has never been easier. Let's show you how to wear a bikini no matter your body shape. 

Pear Shape

If you have a pear shaped body – small shoulders and bust with larger legs, hips, thighs, or bottom – swimwear styles that draw the eyes upward are an ideal choice. Highlight you upper body by wearing pieces with bright colours and designs at the top, and balance your proportions by choosing dark, solid colours at the bottom. Details like ruffles or knotted centres will flatter your bust and add volume to your top half. We love the double frill bikini top in a fun print.

Apple Shape

If you are an apple shape – wider shoulders, larger chests, shoulders, or stomach with narrow waist and hips - look for styles that create a waist. High waisted pants in a fun print are ideal as they balance out the hips and cinch in the waistline. Pair them with a classic underwire bikini top for bust support and a stylish look.

Hourglass Shape

Women with an hourglass shape – larger chests and hips, but with a small waist – are always considered the lucky ones. An hourglass figure is well proportioned on the top and bottom. You can get away with many bikini styles, including low waist styles that sit on the hip. Keep your proportions balanced by always choosing matching tops and bottoms in either prints or plain colours.

Round Shape

Women with this shape generally have full shoulders and hips, and a round waist. Choose a high waisted pant to create the look of a more defined waist. A frilled top that flares over the bust is ideal as it will soften your silhouette and provide a little more coverage for your midsection.

Rectangle Shape

Women with this shape have straight proportions, equal from shoulders to hips, so you’ll want to choose swimwear that creates a waistline. Once again, high waisted pants that feature ruching will add volume to the hips and cinch in your waist. Have fun with ruffles and frills such as our crop wrap top.
