Swimsuit Shapes (Pic Heavy)

I can't stop talking about summer despite the rain nowadays. At some point you will be able to go to the beach with uninterrupted sunshine and breeze. Here are "figure fixers" - swimsuit shapes that flatter your body type. The first set focuses on swimsuits that mask belly bulge while still looking fashionable.

Deep V - "A plunging neckline directs eyes to your cleavage, while details like fringe or a twist conceal a tummy."



Tankini - "It disguises your trouble zone, but you're still showing some skin."



Cutout - " The nipped-in shape of the open areas creates the impression of an hourglass figure."


*woot! It's Nell :)*

Folded Bottom - "An extra layer of fabric is forgiving, and since it's not skintight, you look more streamlined."



Some people want to hide their ass, others don't. These swimsuit styles will give you some options where your derrière is concerned :)

Boy Shorts - "Make this your poolside wingwoman - it's full-coverage yet super sexy."



Low-Rise - "It hits below your hips, so your butt seems smaller."



Vertical Stripes - "Up-and-down lines are visually slimming."



String Ties - "You can adjust the bottoms to find the perfect fit for your bum."



So that's 8 swimsuit styles that you can choose from to flatter your body. Have fun!

Peace, Love & Blaze,
