Goddiva’s Guide to Choosing the Perfect Bathing Suits for Your Body Type

by Goddiva Account 13 Jun 2024

Summer is fast approaching, and with it comes the excitement of beach days, pool parties, and sun-soaked vacations. Finding the perfect bathing suit that flatters your body type can make all the difference in how you feel and look. Goddiva’s guide is here to help you navigate the world of bathing suits with confidence and style, ensuring you find the ideal suit that enhances your natural beauty and makes you feel fabulous.

 First things first, it’s all about confidence. The best swimwear is the one that makes you feel amazing. Seriously, the most important thing you can wear is confidence. Forget the "rules" and focus on what makes you feel great. If you’re glowing with confidence, you’ll look incredible no matter what. That said, let’s chat about some tips that might help you highlight your favorite features.

Got curves for days? High-waisted bottoms are your best friend. They’re super trendy right now and do a fantastic job of accentuating your waist while providing a bit more coverage. Pair them with a cute bikini top that gives you the support you need. Think underwire or a halter style that lifts and shapes. And if you’re feeling adventurous, why not try a bold print? Floral, stripes, polka dots – anything that makes you smile.

Now, if you’re rocking a more athletic build, you might want to create some curves. Ruffles and frills are perfect for this. They add volume and can create the illusion of a curvier figure. A triangle bikini top or something with a bit of padding can also add some oomph up top. And don’t shy away from those cheeky bottoms; they can give your booty a nice boost.


Pear-shaped bodies, with wider hips and a smaller bust, can achieve a balanced look by emphasizing the upper body. Opt for bikini tops with ruffles, embellishments, or bold patterns to draw the eye upward. Halter tops and padded swimsuits can add volume to the bust area. For bottoms, go for solid colors and simple designs to downplay the hips. High-cut legs can elongate your figure and create a more balanced appearance.

If you have an hourglass figure, characterized by a well-defined waist and balanced bust and hips, you’re in luck! This body type can rock a variety of swimwear styles. Highlight your curves with bikinis featuring supportive underwire tops and high-waisted bottoms. These styles accentuate your waist while providing ample support. One-piece suits with cutouts or belted waists also work wonders by drawing attention to your enviable silhouette.

Last but not least, let’s talk about one-pieces. These aren’t just for your grandma anymore. One-pieces have made a major comeback and for good reason. They’re super versatile and can be incredibly sexy. Look for styles with plunging necklines, open backs, or interesting cut-outs. They offer great coverage but can still be very flirty and fun.

Remember, the perfect swimwear is the one that makes you feel like the best version of yourself. It’s all about highlighting what you love about your body and not stressing about fitting into a certain mould. So, next time you’re on the hunt for swimwear, try on different styles, play with colours and patterns, and most importantly, wear that confidence like it’s your favourite accessory.

Alright, now go out there and find that perfect suit. And when you do, rock it like you own the beach. Cheers to sunny days and feeling fabulous!
