A pear figure faces special challenges when it comes to finding a bikini that fits. Usually if the bottom piece fits, it means the top is too big, or if the top fits then the bottom is way too small. There are a couple of different solutions to the problem that can make swimsuit shopping fun again. The easiest way to get a better fit is to buy pieces separately which will allow you to wear a medium top and a large bottom. The problem with that solution is that most bikinis are sold in sets. The good news is that there is still hope for a great fitting bikini.
Adjustable bikini bottoms are the best way to get a great fit. Sides that tie will allow you to loosen or tighten it as needed. Many string styles also let you slide the fabric along the string to adjust the coverage to your needs. A bikini skirt is a great style for creating fluid lines that minimize a pear figure while nicely framing your feminine curves. For a fitted, full coverage style that is flattering to a pear figure, go for a two-toned look with a darker color on the bottom and a brighter color or print on top. These features make it possible for women with all body types to adjust the bottom to fit their own needs.
Selecting the right bikini top to go with your new bottom is also an important factor in balancing out a pear figure. Top styles that add volume will have the biggest impact to your overall look. Some options to consider are styles with ruffles, as well as demi styles that are designed to have a push-up effect. Other great tops for a pear figure include bandeau tops, as well as sweetheart designs that have wide set straps to maximize cleavage.
Swimsuit shopping for a pear figure does not have to be the challenge it used to be as long as you know what to look for before you even start shopping.
