Understanding Your Body Type

It's crucial to understand your body type before deciding which type of sustainable swimwear suits you best. Different types of women's swimwear can highlight your greatest features and assist in hiding any insecurities that you may have. Remember, every body type is different, and no swimwear will look the same on different people. Below are some different body shapes and swimwear options that suits them best.

Hourglass: This figure type is typical to those who have a clearly defined waist and feature well-balanced proportions. Luckily most styles of swimwear suit this body type. It is recommended to find swimwear that accentuates your natural curves. This may include high-waisted bottoms and swimwear bikini tops with support from an underwire.

  • The high-waisted cheeky cut Shelly swimsuit bottoms from Simpl Swim are the perfect example of excellent design for the hourglass figure.
  • Accentuate your hourglass figure with the Mentawai One-Piece Swimsuit from Ocean Soul Bali. With a zipper front, there is ample room for your bust, and the two-toned design shows off your best features.
  • Your curves will be showcased in their best way in the Bliss Boheme One-Piece, with a retro style and full coverage bottoms and a cross tie on the back. This one-piece will become your new favourite.

Apple: Bodies with an apple shape or inverted triangle feature a larger bust but yet have slimmer limbs and legs. To achieve a more defined waistline look, search for swimwear that accentuates your legs. One-piece swimwear draws attention to your legs as well, keeping your stomach in place. For swimwear bikini styles, look for high-leg cut briefs and bikini tops with exciting design features.

  • A stylish one-piece should always be a wardrobe staple, and the Lucy Swimsuit by Lionel The Label will accentuate your legs while keeping your bust in place.
  • For those with a larger bust, the double fabric and moderate coverage of the Soulti Surf Kailani Top is ideal for those long days in the sun.

Pear: The classic pear shape features gorgeous wider hips, cinched waist and often a smaller bust. High-cut or high-waisted bikini bottoms are favourites because they lengthen your legs. Also, thong bikini bottoms have a similar effect on the body shape. Bikini tops that include eye-catching designs and ruffles draw attention upwards.

  • The unique styling of the Kauai Bikini Top by Aruba is perfect for those with a pear-shaped body.
  • High-waist bikini bottoms from Aruba are ideal as they cinch in at the waist and give the appearance of longer legs.

Athletic: This body type features shoulders, bust, waist and hips that are pretty much the same width. This is also known as the straight or rectangle body type. If you have this body type, you have the freedom to wear halter neck and triangle bikinis with ease. Consider selecting swimwear with ruffles, fringes, or a vibrant print to give the appearance of curves. This is also possible through the careful selection of one-piece swimwear, especially ones with a plunging neckline.

Plus Size: It is important for plus-size bodies to feel confident and embrace their curves. Sustainable swimwear with built-in support, such as underwire, wide straps, or adjustable ties, are essential features to look out for. Your figure can be accentuated by wearing high-waisted bottoms and one-piece swimmers, especially in colour-blocking tones. 

Finding The Perfect Swimwear

It's time to select the ideal sustainable swimwear now that you have a better understanding of your body shape and the styles that fit you. Here are some pointers to assist you with your search:

  • Emphasise Your Best Features: Decide which parts of your body you want to draw attention to and select swimwear that does so. For instance, a halter top or a neckline that plunges can look good on someone with a larger bust.
  • Comfort and Support: It's crucial to feel supported and comfortable in your swimwear. In addition to elastic, high-quality fabrics, look for adjustable straps, underwired or moulded cups, and fabrics that combine fashion and function.
  • Try New Patterns and Colours: Don't be afraid to try new patterns and colours. Vertical stripes, striking designs, and clever colour blocking can give the appearance of a more symmetrical shape. However, solid colours in flattering tints are always a safe choice if you prefer a more understated appearance.
  • Accessorise: The appropriate accessories will help you complete your beach style. A stylish hat with a large brim, sunglasses, a chic cover-up, or a sarong will allow you to stay sun-safe as well as be part of the entire look at the same time.
