How to choose the right swimsuit

How to choose the right swimsuit for different body shapes is a conundrum for most women as the holiday season fast approaches.

And a new infographic is offering advice to those getting ready for a summer beach break.

Swimwear That Suits, compiled by beauty experts at, allows women to find the perfect swimsuit or bikini based on their shape.

Users can start by working out what body type they have from the most common types – hourglass, apple, triangle or athletic type – and then follow the graphic for tips on what style to go for, and what to avoid.

Women with an athletic shape are told to go for frills and gathering to ‘help create the optical illusion of curves’, whereas anyone with an hourglass figure is told that vintage cuts are perfect, according to the advice.

The infographic states: ‘Whether you’re catching waves at the beach or simply relaxing by the pool, choosing the right swimwear for your shape is essential.

‘Forget hiding under sarongs or covering up any imagined flaws.

‘It’s all about finding the ideal cut and style that will give you that perfect beach body.’
