Below you’ll find some amazing guidelines to find a fabulous one piece swimsuit you can wear based on your body type and desired look.
Sarong & So Right
The sarong front one piece features the one piece silhouette you’ve come to know and love, along with a flirty panel that drapes over the front of your midriff to provide more coverage.
Ruching & Shirring For the Win
You could also try a swimsuit that’s slightly ruched or shirred around the waist and midsection to keep your figure looking smooth.
Add a Few Inches
Another great way to put together a sleek look is to find styles that lengthen your torso. Shop for one pieces that feature low necklines that accentuate your bust by drawing attention upwards, effectively creating the illusion of a longer figure.
Of course, you’ll always feel safer going with a solid, black one piece, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up and sport prints that are on the bolder, more vibrant side. Try out some floral, animal or abstract prints to make your figure pop!
Show Your Stripes
Diagonal stripes work brilliantly to both highlight your curvy features as well as make your torso look longer. You can find many different types of one pieces that feature diagonal stripes, even some that incorporate color-blocking elements to help break up the appearance of the torso. Of course, the general rule is that curvy women should stay away from horizontal stripes but this isn’t necessarily true.
A strategically placed horizontal stripe can be flattering if it hits you in the right place, especially right below the bust or at the waist of a swimdress which can help to add the appearance of length to your torso.
Color Your World
Yes, black as a general rule can be very flattering, but there are plenty of other colors that you can flaunt with confidence. Jewel tones, such as rich forest greens, sapphire tones, garnet and purples all have the same effect as black. You can also shop for brighter colors, too. In fact, strategically placed, bright color blocks can actually complement your figure and they’re a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit.
