Find Flattering Swimwear for Your Body Type

July 27, 2013

Swimwear is something that many people dread having to wear, but for a trip to the beach or a holiday it is unavoidable. Like many things in fashion however, get the right style and your swimwear can work with your body to make you look and feel fabulous. In the past, the only choices were a one-piece or a bikini in a few different colours, but now there are thousands of styles and designs to choose from to suit every shape and size. Check out ASDA George’s swimwear range for some fantastic figure flattering styles. Find your shape below for advice on what suits you best.


Pear-shaped ladies are blessed with a booty and some fantastic womanly hips. Make the most of your shape in either a bikini or a swimsuit that has detail on the top to balance out your bottom half. There are loads of fantastic one-piece swimming costumes available that have a plain lower half, and a pattern on the bust area, these are a juicy pear’s best friend.

When it comes to bikinis, there is absolutely no reason to shy away. This year, mixing and matching your bikini separates is very in vogue, so why not try a top with a pattern and some embellishment, and contrast with bottoms in a block colour. Complete the look with some accessories, continuing the balancing act with a statement necklace, bold earrings or a sun hat.

A great deal of women in the UK fall under the apple-shaped category, and it is the one group that seems to hate swimsuits the most. With plenty of beautiful swimwear that will suit this body shape available there is no need to worry. These can be super affordable too with supermarket clothing range George at ASDA having such great value options.

You apple ladies will likely feel most confident if your perceived trouble areas are not completely exposed. This leaves two options, the all-in-one costume, or the tankini. Plain fabric tankinis will make you look slimmer if you are not feeling too confident, and some detailing around the bust with draw the eye up your body. If you want a bit more control opt for a one-piece that is high in lycra, or a ruched side so the fabric hides any bits you want to conceal.

Everyone wants to be slim all over, but it can make women feel quite boyish and unfeminine. Luckily there are some great swimwear options to help give the illusion of curves, where they may not naturally occur.

Because you don’t need to worry about your tummy, bikinis very much have the green light for banana shapes. The brighter and more extravagant the better, and patterns and embellishment will draw attention to the bust and hip area making you appear more curvaceous. Tassels are very in this summer and are one of the top ways to add volume to flatter chests.

Whatever your shape and size, look and feel amazing this summer in some of 2013’s best swimwear fashions. There is something for everyone so grab your towel and head for the beach.
