Spring is finally here, which means it’s officially vacation season and summer is around the corner!  Wherever your destination or current location is, you’re definitely want to hit the beach in a cute new swimsuit. Shopping for clothes can be a workout, but shopping for the perfect bikini or one piece  is a different kind of cardio. Whether you have an athletic, slim frame or a curvier figure, there are tons of great swimwear designed for you. A great swimsuit is fun, sexy and makes you feel good. All body types are beautiful, and it’s important to wear something that accentuates the best features of yours! We talked to experts and rounded up the best styles of swimsuits for your body type to guide you this season.


Athletic: slim, less curvier body types.

A monokini is perfect for creating the illusion of a more shapelier frame, while also complementing yours. (SheIn Contrast Striped Print Plunge Neck Backless Swimsuit, $14)

Large Bust: plenteous cleavage, requiring more support up top.

Go for suits with underwire or molded cups to give the girls the support they need. (ASOS FULLER BUST Mesh Elastic Trim Underwire Crop Bikini Top, $28. Bottom, $22)

Pear Shape: curvier at the hips, smaller on the top.

This bardot style bikini can balance proportions for your top and bottom half. Avoid reaching for a boy short or thick-banded bottom. (Missguided White Stripe Bardot Bikini Set, $36)

Stomach Concealing: apple shape type with most of your weight in your middle.

Opt for high-waisted or tankini styles that help to smooth out your middle; they’re flattering and they are super on trend! (Doll Waikiki Navy Blue Bandeau Top & High-Waist Bikini $39)

Small Bust: smaller cleavage that requires less support.

Look for styles with more minimal coverage, embellished detailing or patterns to create the illusion of a bigger chest. Bandeaus and deep neckline tops are perfect for this body type. (Missguided White Frill Bikini Top, $18, Bottom, $15) 

Curvy: Full hips, bust, thighs and butt. 

The key is to highlight your curves while providing enough support and coverage. Asymmetrical swimsuits highlight the neckline and helps you flaunt your best features without committing to a bikini. (Swimsuits For All Portofino Ruffle One-Shoulder Swimsuit, $39)
