Swimsuits aren’t just for having fun in the water. They’are also a fashion statement that can mold your body so that the things you want to show off will draw attention, while the things you would rather hide can go unnoticed.
Conceal the Tummy
If your tummy offers a little more than you want to share with the world, you can slim it or detract from it. Consider tummy-concealing or flattening bottoms or one-piece suits. A high waist also takes attention above the tummy. Subtle cutouts draw attention to exposed skin rather than your midsection. Get a suit with a tie at the waist to accent your waistline and take attention away from the stomach.
Enhance the Bust
For the ladies who are a little smaller on top, there are a few simple tricks to help you out. Wear a top with ruffles, padded cups, or push-ups. For a fun, flirty look, opt for the Bandeau top that draws attention to the shoulders. Get one with a few ruffles for a fuller look on top. A scallop-edged bikini can also create the illusion of a fuller bust.
Reduce the Bust
When you want to go to the beach, but you also want support and a look that goes beyond the bust, you’ll need molded cups and/or an underwire. A higher back can also give you support right where you need it. The key here is to draw attention away from the bust to other areas. You can do this with cutouts, and minimal decor on top.
