- The Pear shape
For the bottom heavy ladies, we suggest choosing a swim style where the top portion of the baiting suit is sparkly or provides a design that detracts from your lower half. The goal is to divert all attention from your bottom to your bust.

Tips: Baiting suits with an empire waistline can be your best friend
2. The Boyish figure
For these ladies, we suggest choosing a swim suit with a sweet heart neckline or halter top. The sweetheart neckline or halter will hug the busts together and create cleavage. Ultimately giving the illusion of curves. Also ruffles or skirt bottoms help to create the illusion of hips
Tips: padded tops push up bras, and v necks are your best friend

3. Short torso
For the ladies with a short torso. We suggest choosing swim styles which will elongate your waistline. Halters and Plunging necklines are the best swim style for you. The Halter and plunging neckline draws attention to your top while creating the appearance of a longer torso.

Tip: One pieces, empire waistline, swim suits with ruching on the sides all are great options for you
4. Big arms
For the lady who would love to draw attention away from her arms, we suggest you choose a suit with wide straps in a halter or deep v neck swim style. The goal is to draw attention to your bust instead of your arms. You can do this by choosing suits with designs on the bust. This will lessen the focus on your arms www.neimanmarcus.com, www.bloomingdales.com
Tip: Never wear suits with fancy straps. This will draw attention to your arms. Also, choose suits with wide straps; stay clear of thin strap suits
5. Short legs
Play up your strength and lengthen your legs by choosing a suit with a lounging neckline and high cut bottoms. The high cut bottom will create a sexier longer leg.

Tips: Stay clear of skirted bottoms or boy shorts, they will shorten your legs.
6. The Tummy For the ladies who have more tummy than they would like, we suggest choosing a one piece with deep plunging necklines, side shirring, or an empire waistline. The goal is to choose styles that will minimize the waist. Empire waistlines and shirring sides hugs the waists and creates the illusion of a slimmer midsection. The deep plunging necklines direct the attention to the bust instead of the tummy area.. All these styles will create an appearance of a smaller tummy.
Tip: Stay away from high rise bottoms and never choose a suit that is too tight across the midsection
7. Large bust
Support! Support! Support!! Good support is the key. It’s important to choose a suit that will lift and position your bust in a flattering way. Choose a suit with a great underwire and wide straps. Choosing a suit with great lift and support can lift and create a slimming effect. It will help you to create a more flattering appearance.
8. Small Bust
For the ladies who wish they had a just a little more on top, we suggest you choose a swim style which focuses solely on the bust. Choose tops with ruffles, suits with ruching on the bust area, or choose a top with padding. All these swim styles are excellent in creating more volume in the bust area.
