Choosing swimwear for your apple shaped figure

If you carry your weight around your tummy and don't have a defined waistline, with smaller hips, then you are considered to have an apple shaped figure. But the plus side is most apple shaped women have great legs and a shapely bust line.

As your top half is larger than your bottom the goal with your swimwear should be to show a slimmer top, while at the same time defining your waist more and showing off your slimmer legs.

Add style and embrace your shape

One of the best ways to do this is by choosing either a one-piece swimsuit with a plunging or V shaped neckline, to flatter your bustline and upper body drawing the eye away from your middle.

Add ruching or shirring around the tummy for waist definition. A crossover swimsuit is another good way to create the illusion of a waist, and if you want to minimise your tummy area, a swimsuit with extra control will help to even out your shape and hide your tummy.

Create your own selection of swimwear

Tankinis give flexibilty to mix and match your top, with your bottom half helping you emphasize your best features. This could be your legs and thighs, or your bustline drawing the eye upwards. If you’re looking for a tummy slimming effect always choose a tankini long enough to meet the top of your bikini bottoms.

If you want to camouflage your tummy a little more, look for a tankini with tummy control or a patterned tankini top, to help hide any lumps or bumps. Halter tops are also good for accentuating your shoulders to help define your silhouette.

Highlight your best features

Highlighting your best features not only brings some glamour to your swimwear, but also adds to your confidence. If you have slender legs, choose bikini bottoms that are cut high in the leg, or string styles which have tie sides to elongate your legs further.
