Hourglass Figure: Lucky you. You have curves in all of the right places. Everything looks good on you. So as they say, if you got it flaunt it. Try sassy suits and forego the cover up. Who needs one when you look as good as Beyonce? Surely not you.
Pear Shape: Your problem areas are that your lower body, including your hips and things are bigger than your top half. What you need to do to conceal this is find a swimsuit and cover up that is darker on the bottom – black is perfect. It truly visually minimizes your hips and thighs. You could also try a busy pattern on the top, which tricks the eye in looking at your top have and stops the attention to the areas of your body you don’t want people to look at. Try a push up bathing suit top. This also makes you appear to be more proportionate. V-neck styled swimsuit tops also draws attention away from your bottom half.
Cone Shape: While you may have thinner hips and thighs, you carry your weight in your upper body. So, do the opposite. Give the illusion of a smaller chest, by wearing darker colors, like black on the top. For your cover up, wear shorts to balance out your shape. You could also wear a print cover up on the bottom, for the illusion of a more proportioned physique. Don’t wear a halter style bathing suit on top; it will make you appear to have broader shoulders than you already have.
Stick Straight: You’re model thin. You look great in clothes. But, you’re looking for more curvature in your suits right? Of course! For a cover up, try low-slung hip hugging shorts, which will elongate your waist. Wear a push-up top for your bathing suit top to give the illusion of curves and head to the beach.
