5 Flattering Swimwear For Your Body Type

When it comes to clothes shopping, few things give women more anxiety than finding a swimsuit. The perfect swimsuit is the right balance of functional yet flattering for our body shape and finding it is like winning a mini lottery.

Our editorial team has waded through scores of online stores so that you don’t have to. We excluded bikinis from this list and focused on monokinis so that all swimwear address the dreaded tummy bulge. Here is our list of swimwear for common body types:


Big Bottoms

LASH Sexy Pin Up One Piece

If you are blessed with voluptuous booty, high-cut swimwear can often be a bit too revealing and a tad uncomfortable. You should opt for swimwear with solid color bottoms and ample fabric so that it sits comfortably without riding up.


Small or Flat Bottoms

Opting for high cut swimwear can create an illusion of a fuller bum. Also, swimwear with prints will draw attention to more flattering areas of your body.


Tummy Pouch

SPEEDO Twist Front U-Back 1 Piece

A swimsuit with a ruching effect can easily hide a tummy. Pieces with a plunging neckline can also keep the focus upwards, rather than on your mid-section.


Straight Body

ASOS Scuba Swimsuit Peplum

Peplums are not only great for the office but they also create an illusion of curves for your beachwear.

While this isn’t a monokini, it has a high-waisted bottom that works wonders to cover the bulge since it extends above the belly button.
