Choosing a bikini can always be a challenge for women of all shapes and sizes. Even the most proportioned women have to deal with their own body issues, how their skin tone matches a suit and overall self confidence. With a pear-shaped body, you’ll want to maximize your chance to even out your top and bottom half as much as possible by choosing a suit that flatters your shape. There’s no rule that says you can’t wear a bikini; the trick is to find one that best “suits” you.
Full Coverage Bottoms
Women with pear-shaped bodies tend to have fuller lower halves of their body. Even if you’re not a petite or small-framed girl, you’re considered pear shaped if your torso is slimmer up top and gradually fills out at your hips and thighs. Wear full coverage bikini bottoms that aren’t cheeky or low cut, especially in the back. Those styles only accentuate the curves and if you’re already pretty hippy, you’ll want to steer clear of them. Opt for a solid color on the bottom such as a dark coral, red or black with a multicolor bikini top.
Wide Band Bikini
If you have an ample hip and bun area, the curviness is something you can definitely embrace. You don’t have to feel as if you have to hide your body when you confidently wish to do otherwise. If you have a flatter stomach, wear a wide band bikini bottom that sits right at the bottom of your tummy but is cut wide across your hips. This style not only gives you coverage width-wise but the shorter band creates a longer line from your waist to your hips.
Boy Shorts Bottom
Slide into a bikini with boy shorts bottoms which are perfect for walking around in your bikini. As these shorts have the same great feel of your traditional bikini bottom, the cut extends down past your bum and sits high at your lower waist area just like a pair of short shorts. These are an ideal option if, within your pear shape, your thighs are pretty proportioned to your body but you still carry most of your weight at your hips and bottom.
When you just can’t imagine baring all your goodies no matter if you’re out and about at an outdoor party or sunning at the beach, wear a bikini with a skirt bottom to give you the most coverage. You don’t have to stick to dark, drab colors just because you’re fuller on the bottom. Wear a matching bikini on the top and bottom in a patterned print that complements your skintone.
