As the cold weather begins to leave and we begin to shed our scarves and gloves, a new worry arrives – swimsuit season is on the horizon!
Panic not ladies – help is available with our handy body shape style guide online! Whether you’re curvy, athletic, have broad hips or shoulders we have some great advice on swimwear for your shape as well as a great selection of swimsuits, tankinis, and bikinis to make the most of any figure.
For apple shapes: Look out for tummy control when buying a swimsuit or tankini, this will smooth and support the tummy area. Detail on the bust will focus attention away from the tummy whilst an empire line will enhance the narrowest area of your waist. Ladies swimwear with vertical details lengthen the body and provide a slimming effect.
My top pick for apples
For pear shapes: When choosing a swimsuit, bikini or tankini aim to have the detail, colour and design focusing on the chest and away from the hips. Achieve a slimmer look – opt for control fabrics with draped and ruched styling. Asymmetric details on ladies swimwear will avoid a focus on unwanted areas.
My top pick for pears
For hourglass shapes: Be bold and flaunt those curves! Enhance your shape with added features such as cup support and control panels. An empire line in your swimwear choice, whether a swimsuit or tankini, will further enhance your natural shape.
My top pick for hourglasses
For rectangle shapes: Details on the waist will create the illusion of curves. Enhance your shape with added swimwear features such as padded cups and control panels. Look out for bold colours and prints, you can get away with it so go for it!
My top pick for rectangles
For triangle shapes: When choosing your swimwear aim to have the detail on the lower half focusing attention away from the chest. Embrace your assets with sweetheart necklines. Look for swimsuits, bikinis or tankinis with hidden support features such as cupsized, underwired and shelf bras.

All you have to do now is wait for the warmer weather and book those holidays!
