Itty bitty bikini?


It is still summertime where some of our followers live so we thought it would be a great time to discuss swimwear. We think that every woman deserves to feel comfortable, sexy and confident in her swimwear. But it can often be a struggle to find great swimwear that best suits different body types.

In this post we provide some of our tips and suggestions to guide you on your shopping trip, including (i) images of swimwear and (ii) the body type(s) it would best accentuate (iii) and briefly state how it does so. Keep reading to find out what swimwear best suits you!


When selecting the right bikini for your body type, keep in mind that your aim is to create the illusion of a symmetrical body. 

For example, if you have large breasts and narrow hips we would aim to select pieces to make the hips appear wider or the breasts appear smaller. 


A lot of people think cover ups can be boring but we beg to differ. Cover ups can not only add to your comfort but it can also spice up your swimwear look.

This is very flattering around the tummy area but still sexy as it shows some skin. This would suit most body types. However if you are of a larger build, pay attention to the cut outs to make sure that only desired areas are exposed.

    The Tankini


This type of bikini would best suit women with a longer torso by making the torso appear shorter in comparison the lower half of the body. This is also great for woman who may not want to expose too much of the tummy area. 

                                The Bandeau Top Bikini


The bandeau top is highly recommended for women who have small to medium sized breasts. Ideally between an A & C cup. This will therefore be able to hold the bust in place. If you wish to make your breasts appear larger opt for a ruffled bandeau top.

   The Triangular Bikini Top


Women with medium to large bust should lean more towards these bikini tops as they tend to provide more support for the bust. Padded triangle bikini tops may also be flattering on women with a smaller, if they wish to make their bust appear larger.

    The High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms


High-waisted bikini bottoms are not only trendy, they also hold the tummy in place and create the illusion of a smaller waistline. These would therefore be suitable for women with larger waistlines and will help to create an hourglass figure.

    The Boyleg Bikini Bottoms


These look great on most body types but are specifically ideal for women with a non athletic frame. They help to hold everything in place. 

   The One- piece Swimsuit



This is flattering for all body types and there are many fun styles and colours to try.

Remember, these are only our tips and suggestions. Play around with different styles and decide which best suits YOU!
