The Best Swimsuits for Your Body Type

Look and feel your best.

When it comes to swimwear, I subscribe to the mentality that less is more. Truly! No matter your body type, it’s always empowering to flaunt what you’ve got. We are all beautiful, and we all deserve to feel that way. And since summer is the time to enjoy ourselves, why not also opt for clothing that boosts your confidence? As summer 2021 approaches, find a style you feel amazing in. Rather than categorize your body into an athletic or pear shape (or any other subscribed notion of body type), look for a swimsuit that highlights your favorite assets. If you put the emphasis on the parts of yourself that you love, others will take notice, and you'll be the hottest thing on the beach.

For Elongating Your Legs
Jeanette Bandeau Strapless Bikini
Frankies Bikinis frankiesbikinis.com
$165.00

Choose a high-cut swimsuit bottom to highlight your long legs or give the illusion of longer legs. Since the fabric doesn't completely cover up your hips/lower half, the extra hint of skin tricks the eyes into thinking your legs are a mile long. Not to mention, it's a sexier way to rock your bikini bottom.
