Top Tips to help you find the Perfect Swimwear this Summer

Are you heading off to warmer climes this summer, but dread the thought of wearing a swimsuit? Finding a style that flatters your body shape will give you the confidence to step out into the sunshine and feel good about yourself.

An ill-fitting swimsuit will only cause you distress, so it is important that you take some time to try on a variety of styles. Today there are plenty of designer and high street branded options to complement all colours, shapes and sizes.

Here Rebeca Davies, a dedicated personal stylist and shopper, and Director of Style By Rebecca provides some useful tips to help you find the ideal swimwear:

Apple Shape

If you are an Apple Shape and perhaps blessed with being a little top heavy, it is important that you look for swimwear with good support. Try out pieces with bold prints or options that provide control in the tummy area such as this stunning plunge swimsuit from Fig leaves.

Pear Shape

Perhaps you have beautiful pear-shape with curves around your lower body and a smaller bust? You will benefit from paying attention to your upper half. Try on swimsuits that create a balance between your narrow chest and broader hips. Ruffles will add volume to your top half and create visual interest. Look at this striking swimsuit from Seafolly at House of Fraser.


If you boast an hourglass figure with your bust and hips being almost the same size, with a narrow waist, you should seek out swimwear that accentuates your features. Look for pieces that make the most of your waistline and enhance your bust. Try out this bold halter-neck one-piece swimsuit from Heidi Klein at Selfridges & Co.

Inverted Triangle

Do you have a cocktail glass shape and appear broad in the shoulders and narrow down in the legs? One shoulder swimsuits are you allies! Choose swimwear with underwiring if you have a larger bust and opt for styles with thicker straps as they will make your shoulders appear smaller. Check out this eye-catching swimsuit with crossover body detailing from Miraclesuit at Simply Beach.

Rectangle Shape

 You may have a fantastic athletic frame, fewer curves and less waist definition. If so, you can enjoy wearing a swimsuit that adds some curve and definition to your body. Wider neck lines will draw attention to your waistline, creating a beautiful hourglass shape. Try suits featuring bold colours and prints to create the appearance of volume and shape. Here is a fine example of a swimsuit with a hidden shelf bra and side boning from Seafolly at Simply Beach.
