When it comes to finding that perfect swimsuit, I think we need all the help that we can get. Finding the right size and fit can get a bit overwhelming, but having an understanding of your body type can definitely ease all frustrations. Our goal here at PorTreys is to provide you with the keys to access your best self and exude that confidence that we women are known for. So we’ve put this swimsuit guide together to help you get one step closer to breaking necks this spring break.

The first step is to have an understanding of your body type and your best features. Are you curvy or athletic? Do you like to show off your arms or boobs? What are your problem areas? Having an understanding of your body’s fit and frame will effectively help you narrow down all the endless swimsuit options in your shopping bag.

So let’s get started!

If you’re looking to slim your hips…

For my ladies who are pear-shaped (curvy around the hips/thighs and smaller up top), this one is for you. The tip for this body type is to learn how to balance out your proportions and get the coverage that you need for your bottom half. You’ll also want to lean towards an eye-catching top or plunging neckline to draw the focus up-ward and not at the bottom.

If you’re looking to emphasize your small bust…

For my ladies who are part of the A-B cup family, this one is for you. The tip here is to embrace it! Being a part of the itty bitty family gives you a lot of room to have fun with your swimsuits. If you’re looking for some shape, try the underwired swimsuit tops or even add some visual effects with some ruffles, frills, beading, etc.

If you’re looking to hide your problem areas…

Trust me, it’s normal to have some problem areas. The great thing about swimsuits is that it gives you a lot of room to be creative. If your problem area is your midsection, then go towards a tankini. You can also opt for a high-cut leg or low-cut top that draws away from your middle. If your problem area are your arms, then opt for a  long-sleeved swimsuits.

If you’re looking to support your bust…

Finding a swimsuit that promotes control is important when busty. You want something that will give you the support that you need to move around like the queen that you are.  A halter top or a hidden bra will definitely provide that support you need.

If you’re a plus-size woman…

You’ll want to emphasize your curves. Think comfort when it comes to picking out a swimsuit—you’ll want sturdy straps, a good under-wired bra, and enough coverage for your bottom. Vertical or angled strips can help create a slimmer illusion. If you’re looking for a slimmer mid-section, try a wrap style.
