Summertime is here and it’s time to break out the bikini. If you’re searching for the perfect bathing suit, take a look at these styles that are most flattering for each figure. Whether you’re pear-shaped, big busted or lucky enough to have a bombshell hourglass figure, there is a science behind every style of bikini and why one looks better than the other.

Bustier women need to steer clear of the string bikini top that offers virtually no support for your “girls.” Find a top that offers underwire and thicker straps for the best look and the most comfort.

Typically if your thighs and hips are larger than the top of your body, you are considered pear-shaped. To find the swimsuit that is the most flattering for your figure that will balance your proportions, look for a top with bright colors or an eye-catching pattern that will pull the attention of the eye upwards, thus balancing you out. Investing in a tankini will also elongate your figure. Also, if wearing a one-piece, get one with a deep v-neck to draw attention to your assets.

Coverage is key when it comes to finding a suit for your bigger bottom. Avoid string bikinis or smaller-cut suits that will have you constantly fidgeting and tugging throughout the day. Remember you look your best when you are most comfortable and confident.

Women with a smaller bust line can look for swimsuits with a little extra padding and support to give you the boost you need. Adding a top that has embellishments such as ruffles can give the appearance of a larger bust.

If you’ve got a figure that resembles those classic “bombshell” beauties, which include the curves of a larger bust, and rounded hips but smaller waist, you are luckier than most because almost all bikinis will look great due to your perfectly proportioned physique.

If your backside is on the small or flat side, go for a suit with ruching to create the appearance of a larger bum. Also, go for a style that is more cheeky than full coverage. This will also give the illusion of a larger tush.

If you are looking for a suit that best complements your figure, specifically around your mid-section, grab a suit that offers ruching that will give the appearance of a smaller tummy. Also, be weary of certain fabrics. Look for a fabric such as lycra that will suck you in.
