Summer is at its peak these days and the temperature is only soaring. The best way to beat the heat is to go swimming because not only only does it cool you off, it also helps you trim the inches. Flaunt that summer body in the coolest picks of the season, and if you’re too conscious to don a bikini, pick a swimsuit that covers all your problem areas. Here are 6 swimsuits that will flatter different kinds of figures.
1. The halter one piece
If you have an athletic body type(with fewer curves and well-defined shoulders and legs), this one piece is the best bet for you - it will drive attention to your perfectly shaped shoulders and legs. If you are slightly on the heavier side, the solid colour of this pretty coral swimsuit helps even out and conceal all the problem areas. Perfect for women who are a bit shy at the pool!
2. The high-waist bikini
We all love to hate our love handles and midriff flab, but fighting them is easier than you think. A bikini like this with a broad band on the waist conceals and holds in all the problem areas on your midriff, hence making you look slimmer. The ruche on this bikini bottom hides unsightly bulges and the halter bikini top gives your twins a lift, making you the head-turner at the poolside.
3. The skirtini
If you’re like the rest of us and you’re heavy on the thighs, then this skirtini is perfect for you. The length of the skirt is such that it downsizes your thighs. Also, if you are not too comfortable wearing a bikini bottom then this one gives you full coverage (and saves you the need for a bikini wax!). This halter top is also designed to give you good coverage and reveal only a hint of cleavage.
4. The swim dress
This one is for all those girls who either lack curves or have a lot of problem areas to hide. With an empire-line waist, this swimsuit accentuates your curves. The A-line structure of the dress hides all that belly flab (not that belly flab isn’t cute ;)). The length of the dress is such that it is perfect for girls who are really conscious and don’t like revealing too much at the pool.
5. The string bikini
The string bikini gets its name because it is held together with...you guessed it - strings! It provides much less coverage as compared to other bikinis and can be effortlessly worn by women who have an hourglass body shape.If you’ve no qualms flaunting those enviable curves, pick this bright blue and pink string bikini to flatter your shape.
Some girls like to keep it covered but also love wearing a bikini. This pretty kaftan is a simple hack for days when you’re feeling too shy or just want to lounge by the pool. Fill up your summer wardrobe with these pretty kaftans because they double up as dresses too. Win-win!
