Get ready to turn heads on the beach this summer with top tips to shop for the perfect swimwear to suit you.
Pear shaped figure: Go for details on your top half to balance out a wider bottom half. Embellishment around the neck will draw attention away from wide hips.
Boyish figure: Go for frills and ruffles for an instantly feminine frame. Choose horizontal stripes to make you appear curvier. Halterneck styles are great cleavage creators for smaller busts.
Slim figure: You lucky lot can go for daring styles — try experimenting with the hottest trends. If you have a small bust go for a padded top, and cutaway styles are a great way for showing off a toned tummy
Curvy figure: Get ready to strike a pose in bold prints and structured styles with hidden panels. Styles with a slightly higher waist will flatter your tummy. Disguise a wobbly tummy with hidden panelling for extra support, such as this swimsuit from Monsoon.
Petite figure: Chose string–tie styles so your legs will look longer. Small prints are great for petite women as they create the illusion of curves. High cut swimsuits will give a leg lengthening effect. Try this bikini from Born.
Hourglass figure: Enhance your fabulous curves with high cut pants and a structured top, such as this purple bikini from Elegant Undies.
Tall figure: Perfect your proportions with cutaway necklines and clever colour blocking for a supermodel-worthy shape. Wide bandeau styles are great for drawing attention to your waist. A plunging neckline is super sexy and balances out your proportions. Two tone styles help break up a long body.
