Nipped in at the waist, with wider shoulders and hips – a real Marilyn Monroe.
Choose vintage-inspired styles with high waists and longline tops – this really accentuates your curves. We think the Mara Hoffman Starbasket Crochet bikini is perfect – the halter tie is super flattering across your shoulders, and the outward burst print only emphasises your teeny waist.
Swimwear to avoid? Keep away from mismatched bikini tops and bottoms – this can make your curves look disproportional and clunky.
Super feminine and shapely, your bust and stomach are wider than your legs and hips.
Draw attention to your bottom half – show off your legs with a high cut, printed swimsuit. Thicker straps will even out your top half, too – the Paolita Rhapsody Gershwin Swimsuit ticks all the boxes here; the striped print draws attention away from the bust, which is underwired for additional support.
Swimwear to avoid? Thin straps will make your shoulders look wider – thick straps are definitely a must.
Beautifully bootylicious, you’ve got narrow shoulders and curvy hips.
Keep your bottoms a darker, block colour, and choose a fun printed top to balance your shoulders and hips. If you’re feeling a little daring, opt for a triangle plunge neckline to broaden your top half; the Paolita Eltham Bikini Top has a beautiful print and gorgeous back detailing which looks stunning paired with plain bottoms.
Swimwear to avoid? Boy shorts will make your hips look wider, as they’re cut directly across – pick high- or low-waisted styles instead.
Busty, with a slender waist and narrower hips.
Support is key, so choose a halterneck style – bikini tops which fasten around the neck and back allow you to adjust the level of support yourself, ensuring a perfect fit every time. When picking bottoms, choose a style with frills, lattice work or detailing to balance top and bottom – just like the navy and melon L’Agent by Agent Provocateur Eleena Bikini.
Swimwear to avoid? Bandeau tops are a no-go, as they’ll offer limited support.
Toned and taut, your body is straight up and down.
Cut outs, frills, prints and patterns are your friend – all perfect for creating the illusion of super-defined curves. A halterneck top paired with high-cut bottoms will emphasise this; choose something like the L’Agent by Agent Provocateur Agata Swimsuit - the cut out side will give you a gorgeous silhouette!
Swimwear to avoid? Plain bandeau tops won’t give you a great shape – stick to styles which fasten around the neck or feature straps.
