It’s summer, and if you don’t have a beach vacation planned, you're at least aiming to hit the pool every now and then. At least that way we can imagine that we’re chilling by the sea at a tropical island paradise! All you really need to make that dream come true is the perfect swimsuit that makes you look and feel amazing. We bring you the best swimsuits for every body type to get you feeling absolutely fabulous for your splash in the pool!
Best Swimsuits For Every Body Type
The Pear-Shaped Girl
If you’re a girl who isn’t too heavy on top but has bigger hips, you should try something that adds a bit of volume on top. You can focus attention there with a bright print or even a cute ruffle. When going for a two-piece, you might want to opt for something high-waisted - it’s very fashionable and it helps shape your hips.
POPxo Recommends: Red Overlay Swimsuit
(Rs 2,550), Flirtatious Multi Color Striped Beachwear
The Apple-Shaped Girl
If you’re “top heavy”, you might feel the need for something that provides support in the bust area - ‘cause who wants a potential spillage problem in the pool, right?! Strappy bikinis are not great for that purpose - so opt for swimsuits with thicker straps, like a tankini. And when you’re picking a one-piece, try out something that has a shaped chest and fits snugly.

(Rs 1,595), Shivan and Narresh Beachy Babe Tankini
The Girl With A Fuller Figure
If you’re a girl who’s blessed with curves, finding the ideal swimsuit can be a bit challenging. We suggest you try out a cute printed peplum, which gives you great coverage while being totally on trend. And if you’re picking a two-piece, opt for a high-waisted set with some detailing at the waist (we love ruched fabric) and a top with structured cups for better support.

The Girl With An Athletic Figure
We’d suggest suits that give you a curvier look - and what better way to do that than by emphasizing your waist?! Choose a swimsuit that has to detail around your midsection, like a belt or a print. It’ll break add more volume - in just the right places!
