Swimsuit Fit Guide-Pear Shape

You can find the perfect swimsuit to flatter your figure if you understand your body type and how best to accentuate it. Remember, your goal is a balanced silhouette. Find your problem area and read on for tips on what to look for and what to avoid.

If you are pear shaped look for swimsuits that accentuate the positives and conceal the negatives. Bikinis or one-pieces with eyecatching tops and darker bottoms draw attention away from the hips and bottom. High-cut bottoms lengthen the leg and have a slimming effect. Boy shorts provide a bit more coverage. Avoid string-ties or bright bold prints on bottom.

If you feel you have a bit of a tummy look for suits that flatter and firm. One-pieces with ruching and built-in control panels help hide any bulges. Prints that have diagonal lines, chevron patterns and dark side panels that curve in at the waist create a slimming effect. Check out swimsuits by Cass & Co and Miraclesuit.

    These women are anything but pear-shaped but they do look adorable in the suits!

    Yes, I’ve visited many sites that offer swimsuits for the pear-shaped woman. All of the models are quite slim and hardly give the slightest hint of how the suit would appear on a true pear-shaped women. Frustrating.
