THE PERFECT SWIMSUIT GUIDE FOR YOUR BODY TYPE
We can’t wait to find The One, but this quest sometimes releases our inner demons in the fitting room… Swimsuits often lead to a love-hate relationship! With this in mind, out team did a bit of brainstorming on searching for the perfect bathing suit and self-esteem; we talked about the issues that the girls at MFMK had faced while looking for the perfect match. Chances are high you can relate this and benefit from our tips and suggestions. Be proud to highlight your main assets and fully enjoy your summer!
''I’d like to wear a cutout one-piece without feeling stubby.''
Cutout one-piece swimsuits are super popular and there are plenty of options to choose from. We love the model below, with the macramé that reveals some skin, but not too much… To choose the right one, make sure that the cutouts are strategically positioned to suit your body. For example, if you want to highlight your hips, go for side cutouts. To refine your silhouette, avoid horizontal openings; prefer vertical cutouts and open backs. To highlight your neckline, go for cutouts between the breasts.
''I feel a bit uncomfortable showing my belly.''
Don’t worry, there are many options for you! The tankini, a top that fully covers the torso, is a good solution. It’s just like a bikini, but it hides your belly. If you match it with the bottom, it can even look like a one piece, but it’s as comfy as a two-piece swimsuit. Retro high-waisted bottoms are also super trendy! Polka dots, horizontal stripes and geometrical patterns are everywhere! This cut has an incredible sheathing effect! Give it a try!
''I have a full bust and I’d like to highlight it while having a good support.''
Make sure to go for the perfect fit; large straps and underwire cups. A crossover one-piece or bikini top is a good option. Dare to pick bright colours or prints that will highlight your assets!
''I have a small bust that never fills the cups.''
You’d like a little extra boost? Don’t hesitate to go for small push-ups that will create the illusion of natural curves. You can also opt for triangles. Bandeau tops are another good choice. Wear a patterned top and a plain bottom to create an optical illusion. This season, we love ruffles!
''I’d like to enhance my butt.''
You don’t absolutely need to go for a bootykini to enhance your butt. To give it a bit of volume, go for patterns, for a contrast stitching or for a Brazilian cut (ideal to elongate the legs). The idea is to attract the eye to where you want! Inversely, if you don’t want to put the focus on your butt, prefer dark shades and more classical cuts that will go unnoticed.
