Curvy Figure

Curvy Figure

A curvy figure looks amazing in the right swimsuit.  With ample curves on top and bottom, it is important to strike a good balance between support and style.  There are plenty of one piece swimsuits out there that work for your figure, but what if you want to go for a lovely two piece swimsuit?  Just because you have a curvy figure does not mean you have to hide it.  A bikini can be a great way to show off those sexy curves.

With a curvy figure, bikini tops that have wider straps that are also wide set will offer the coverage and support you need, such as a sweetheart top.  This design will shape your curves and nicely enhance your cleavage.  Another great top design for a curvy figure is a halter bikini top with its wider triangle shaped cups and wide neck ties.  For even more lift and support, look for halter tops that also have a thicker under bust strap.  Other styles that have a twisted design or ruched fabric are also excellent choices for women with curves.

Bikini bottoms can be a little more challenging for a curvy figure.  As a general rule, avoid bottoms that have ruffles or frills, or that have a boxier cut such as boy shorts.  Smooth fitting bikini skirts have a great way of hugging your curves in just the right way.  To lengthen your legs and draw attention away from your hips, bikini bottoms with high cut sides, such as Brazilian bottoms, are an excellent choice.

Color and print can be another dilemma facing women with a curvy figure.  Most people say to wear dark colors, but that is assuming you want to hide or minimize your curves.  Avoid heavy prints, but otherwise go for whatever color works best for you.  If you feel good in your bikini, chances are you will look good in it, too.
