Sexy + Suitable Swimwear Styles For All Shapes & Sizes
YK DAILY want you to feel chic and sexy whilst enjoying your precious time lounging by the pool, or on the beach, either playing volley ball, sipping on a classic Mojito or reading that gripping book. See our suggestions for the most flattering swimwear choices for your body shape. Swimwear needn't be a nightmare! Your search for the Holy Grail of swimsuits ends here.
Your curvaceous body shape suits a classic bikini with an underwired bra style top, and leg-lengthening high-cut bottoms. Don't be afraid to show off your stomach – it's all about your sought after curves after all.
The classic swimsuit is perfect if you're looking for more coverage over your tummy. Draw attention away from your tum in a swimsuit with sexy cut outs or side ruching detail. Try one-pieces with control panels for extra support - there are so many chic and sexy styles on the high street right now, and you'd never know they've got hidden control.
The Big Bust
Show off your shape with a stretchy swimsuit. Opt for a style that won't dig in and create any bulges. Don't be scared to go up a cup size, as coverage is key.
A sexy, bustier style will hold you in place. Full cups mean major support. Deep V-necks are also cleavage-flattering.
Go for tops in bra sizes or ones sold separately; thicker straps offer extra support. If you have a really heavy bust and love a halter-neck, take a normal shoulder strap style bikini on holiday too, just to offer your neck a rest day.
The Bigger Bottom
Don't be tempted to hide your bum and hips in boy shorts, they make everything look bigger. High-cut briefs are actually the best way to slim down a generous derrière - see the Kardashians, JLo and Beyoncé on the beach for bikini inspiration.
Excentuate your banging bod with high cut bikini bottoms and tummy shapers. Tankinis are excellent at hiding any muffin tops and untoned tums. Dark, solid colours create a lean silhouette.
Show off your slim shape in a bikini. Add volume to your hips and boobs with bright prints, patterns and flirty frills. If you're feeling brave, dare to bare in a skimpy string bikini. Bandeau bikini tops also look super cute on those with a straight 'up-and-down' figure.
You may not have massive boobs, but you can still have a great cleavage! If you're lacking up front, bold prints, like horizontal stripes and padding help add a little 'oomph'. A halter maillot style works wonders for a smaller chest.
If you're heart-shaped you'll have narrow snake-like hips and a weeny waist, with wide athletic shoulders and a full bust. Balance out your lower half with patterned bikini briefs to draw the eye down to your hips and waist, and try an underwired bikini top for support if needed.
Balance out your bottom-half with a mix 'n' match bikini. Choose patterns and detailing on the top with a dark coloured, plain bottom to draw the eye up.
Styles with ruffles or patterns on the top will emphasise your toned upper half. A halter-neck bikini top will give the illusion of wider shoulders which will balance out your hips.
Cover All Of Me!
If you're super self-conscious, go for a cool cover up – try a sheer kaftan in a bold coloured print. Especially useful if you want to hide any specific areas but have great pins! There are literally so many fashionable styles and designs available everywhere, so you will be spoilt for choice.
