If You’re Short: Try High-Cut Bottoms

This style is flattering on every body shape, but it works especially well for petites, because it creates mile-long legs.

If You’re Apple-Shaped: Try Ruched Material

Not only is ruching super comfortable and forgiving, it’s also perfect for disguising any areas you don’t want to draw attention to. Plus, it's so damn chic.

If You’re Hourglass: Try Belted

You know that belting your dresses and sweaters does wonders for your shape, but did you know that you can do the same with your swimsuit? Game changer.

If You Have a Big Chest: Try a High-Neck Top

The last thing you want to worry about while poolside: keeping your girls under wraps. A high-neck swimsuit will hold them in place without the slightest possibility for a nip slip. It also makes your arms look Michelle Obama–level amazing.

If You Have a Small Chest: Try a Tie-Front Top

So you weren’t gifted with a large chest. No big deal. Create some shape with a tie-front top. A fixed bow adds a little something extra, while customizable ties allow you to bump up the cleavage factor.

Get the look: Topshop ($55); L*Space ($95); Mara Hoffman ($152)


If You’re Pear-Shaped: Try an Off-the-Shoulder One-Piece

A small bust means you can get away with off-the-shoulder styles (they won’t have any trouble staying up *and* they draw the eye upward, balancing out your figure). Prevent any waistband discomfort by opting for a smoothing one-piece with full bottom coverage—chances are, you’ll never want to take it off.

Get the look: Swim Solutions ($76); La Blanca ($93); Solid & Striped ($168)
