In part one of “how to find the perfect bikini”, we went over how people with pear and apple body types should go about choosing their bikinis. We talked about what kind of top to choose, what type of bottom to choose, as well as what colors and accessories to use.
I wrote this article to discuss other body types. These body types include the hourglass body type and the thin-bodied body type. If you happen to fall into the pear or apple shaped body category, you may want to have a look at “how to find the perfect bikini for your body shape part 1”.
Women With Thin Bodies
Women with thin bodies tend to be narrow up top and down bottom. Curves on thin-bodied women are not very noticeable. Many thin-bodied woman feel awkward in bikinis because they feel they don’t have the body for them. However, all hope is not lost. A thin-bodied woman simply needs to wear a bikini that gives her the illusion of curves. To start with, a thin-bodied woman should pick a bikini top that adds thickness. This means padded bikinis, bright colors, loud patterns, and anything that adds texture will be a good idea to wear.
You’ll find that these principles can be applied to the bikini bottom as well. Ruffles, wraps, and anything else that adds texture will help make the thin-bodied woman appear to have a fuller figure. Also, remember that if you’re looking to add thickness, you can’t go wrong with bikini bottoms with horizontal stripes. Add the illusion of wider hips by wearing horizontal stripes.
ï»¿Hourglass Shaped Women
Women with an hourglass figure tend to have very nice curves. These women are full up top and down bottom, but thin at the waist line. With this body type, the key to choosing a bikini is to choose one that is consistent up top and down bottom. For instance, wearing a padded bikini top with a nondescript, dark colored bottom will throw off your hourglass and give you the appearance of having an apple-shaped body. Conversely, a bikini bottom with horizontal stripes and a loud pattern, combined with a plain and unpadded bikini top will make you look more pear shaped. Consistency really is the key to making a great bikini purchase for the hourglass shaped woman.
The cut of the bikini bottom for the hourglass-figured woman is best in a high cut rather than a low cut. This is because the high cut bikini bottom will make you appear to have longer legs.
