All about women's swimwear [3]

Accessories - continuation

Flip flops

Flip flops - have moved from just-beachwear to everyday wear over the past few seasons.

Take a look on which style might suit your body best

Small busted

Small busted - halters and triangle bikini tops work best. Wear lighter color, prints, metallics, shiny fabrics and embellishment on the top. Take advantage of underwire bra tops for more lift. Beware of the trendy bandeau top, as it tends to flatten.

Large busted

Large busted - look for support first. Underwire, sculpted and soft-cup bras built in are very common now. Wrap, surplice tops, strategically placed floral prints, stripes and colorblocking look great, too. Make sure your straps are substantial enough to hold everything together.

No waist

No waist - create the illusion of a small waist with a thin belted suit, wrap-front (surplice) or color-blocking that accents the waist.


Tummy - go for control fabrics, vertical stripes and face-framing details.

Short legs

Short legs - try a leg style that rides high to lengthen your legs. Beware boy-leg shorts or skirted suits.

Bigger on bottom

Bigger on bottom - use wide straps to even things out. Also, lighter colors, prints or embellishment on top with solid darks on bottom help create visual balance.
