The Best Swimsuits For Your Body Type

The Best Swimsuits For Your Body Type - Sequin Sand, LLC
Women's bodies are categorized into many different shapes. Some of these include "triangle" or "pear", "rectangle", "inverted triangle", "apple", and "hourglass". 
We believe every body is BEAUTIFUL no matter what shape or size you are and we can help you find the swimsuit that flatters your body type best!


The majority of women fall into this body shape category. Your hips and thighs are larger than your bust.
TIP: Your focus should be on balancing your hip area with your upper body.
Choose tops with vibrant colors, patterns or ruffles to draw the attention to your upper body. Tops with padding will help create more curves. You can also rock one-pieces, bandeaus and strapless tops.  A bikini set with high waisted bottoms will best flatter a pear body shape. When choosing bottoms, the smaller the better- choosing thick bottoms will make your hips look larger.

Your hips are wider than your shoulders.
TIP: Accentuate your upper body.
Low necklines and halter tops that tie at the neck draw the eye upward.

Your curves are evenly proportioned and you may find your waist is not as defined.
TIP: Focus on the right bikini top to add curves to rectangle body shapes.
If you have a small bust and narrow hips, choosing a bikini with vibrant colors or patterns will give your body the illusion of curves. One-pieces are made for you! Or opt for two-pieces with padding and a plunging neckline. For the bottoms, choose ones with ruffles or side-ties to create the illusion of a more defined waist.

Your waist measurement is larger than your bust and larger than your hips.
TIP: Choose low cut swimwear, high-waisted bottoms and dark colors to elongate your torso.

Inverted Triangle

This body type usually has broad shoulders or a bust that is larger than the hips.
TIP: Accentuate your hips and lower body.
Opt for bikini bottoms with eye-catching embellishments, ruffles or ties to give the illusion of wider hips. When choosing a top, halter tops will flatter you best. Avoid any loud embellishments or prints around the bust like ruffles, as these will only draw the attention away from where you want it (your hips!)

Less than 5% of women fall into this category. You have perfect proportions between your upper and lower body with a well-defined waist. 
TIP: The key is to accentuate your waist to show off your curves.
A one-piece can give the illusion of a smaller waist. This body shape can mix and match bandeaus, and triangle tops very well too!
