Womens Bathing Suits
Flatter your figure
While some rejoice at warmer weather, many women dread swimsuit season. However, learning which styles and colors in a womens bathing suit best compliment your figure can allow you to confidently strut your stuff on the beach or poolside.
The Fruit Rule and Other Style Tips
If you’re pear-shaped, wear skimpy bottoms rather than boy shorts, which make your hips appear larger. A boyish figure can be enhanced with bright colors, wild patterns, slight padding in the top and ruffles and bows around the bustline. For busty women, swimsuits with a built-in bra keep your chest perky while wide-cut bottoms balance your figure.
Dark colored one-pieces or tankinis are best for minimizing the belly. Ruching slims the waistline and conceals bulges, while bright color blocks draw attention to the areas you love. For women with voluptuous curves, plus size bathing suits are available in many colors and styles and are specially designed to slim and smooth. A solid, darker color is best for a plus size bathing suit - big, bold patterns should be avoided or limited to areas where you want to draw attention.
The same tips can be used for maternity bathing suits, which usually come in empire waist styles to provide adequate support and lots of give for your growing belly.

One Piece Bathing Suits
A one piece bathing suit doesn’t necessarily have to be frumpy and old-fashioned. Recently, one piece swimwear has resurged in popularity, resulting in a larger selection of styles and patterns.
A one piece swimsuit is ideal for hiding a flabby stomach while still showing off some skin. Strapless or halter options show off the shoulders, while high-cut varieties highlight and lengthen the legs.
Details such as buckles, ruffles, bows and beading, as well as funky patterns and bold colors, will certainly turn heads at the beach! In fact, a one piece bathing suit can be just as – if not more – sexy than a two-piece. Playful cutouts and plunging necklines show just enough skin while still maintaining modesty and comfort.
- The bikini will always be a classic choice on the beach. For those with confidence, sexy bikinis such as string bikinis show off your body and expose your skin for a consistent, full-body tan. More about Bikinis
The bikini will always be a classic choice on the beach. For those with confidence, sexy bikinis such as string bikinis show off your body and expose your skin for a consistent, full-body tan. If you’re looking for skimpy bikinis, thong bikinis or Brazilian bikinis show off a perky bottom while micro bikinis have only just enough fabric to cover what’s necessary. These tiny bikinis are sure to take the top prize in any Spring Break bikini contest!
If you want to be one of the bikini babes on the beach but these tiny bikinis are a little too adventurous, there are more conservative but still hot bikinis available to you. Bikinis with thicker straps and full bottoms provide support and coverage while still showing off a feminine figure.
- If a one piece bathing suit seems too conservative and a bikini too adventurous, there is another two piece swimsuit option that is both sexy and modest: the tankini. More about Tankinis
If a one piece bathing suit seems too conservative and a bikini too adventurous, there is another two piece swimsuit option that is both sexy and modest: the tankini. A tankini swimsuit is a two piece bathing suit with a top shaped like a tank top, covering most of the belly. However, a tankini top can still be sexy. A halter tankini provides support and hides belly bulges, but shows off your chest and shoulders. Pair it with skimpy bottoms accent your legs or boy shorts for a little extra coverage.
Tankini swimwear is also an effective alternative for those who don’t feel comfortable in a bikini but who have difficulty finding a one piece that fits both their top and bottom. Tankini bathing suits can be mixed and matched to ensure you get the most flattering look for your whole figure. A tankini swimsuit is also ideal for moms-to-be; a maternity tankini will have an empire waistline that can accent a growing bosom while accommodating a growing belly.
