Got a curvy shape and afraid that you’ll look bad in a bikini? Have no fear. Your sexy hourglass curves can look gorgeous with a total bikini makeover appropriate for walking along the beach and catching a few rays poolside. By wearing the best bikini for your body type, you can accentuate the positive and minimize the negative. Get ready to wow the crowd this summer with swimwear that best flatters your feminine figure.
Bikini Bottoms with Side Rings
To minimize a large rear end, choose a pair of bottoms with rings on each side. "Cosmopolitan" magazine reports that you’ll not only keep your bikini bottoms from riding up your behind, but you’ll be fashionable and cute, too! For your next pool party, wear a pair of flip-flops with the ring detailing on the top of the shoe to match your beautiful bikini.
Two-Piece with a Large Floral Print
Balance your curvy hips and sexy shoulders with a two-piece bikini featuring a festive and fun print. A high-cut bikini bottom will help define your waist and lengthen the leg if you are petite. A large floral print is best for your body type because it will keep the eye from focusing on any lumpy and bumpy areas of your body. Rock a solid-colored bathing cover-up to complement the print and not overpower your curves.
Bikinis with Ruching
Look thinner with a bikini that features ruching. Side-gathering bikinis are not only feminine and retro, but give the wearer the appearance of a slimmer figure by defining your waist. Unleash your inner Marilyn Monroe or Kim Kardashian with bikini tops that feature ruching in the middle of the bust, and bottoms that gather on each hip.
Bikinis with Side Ties
Skip the boy-short bottom and choose a bikini with side ties instead. With side ties, you can adjust the bathing suit to your hip size for a couture fit. As an added bonus, ties on your bikini top will keep your suit in place as you swim or sunbathe.
