Yes, you can look beachy keen!

Keira Knightley

Okay, so you didn’t get a call back for the Baywatch auditions. The good news is that having a modest chest like Keira Knightley gives you the freedom to wear a variety of bikini tops that bustier gals can’t get away with, not that it stops some of them from trying… Rather than reaching for a thick padded cup, flaunt your figure in a bandeau or triangle top, which look best on smaller chests. If you want to make your molehills a bit more, ahem, mountainous, opt for an underwire, modest padding or a top with flirty ruffles, which will add volume.

Turn heads in this unique watercolor-print bikini. Bonus: The striking one-shoulder strap adds extra insurance against any embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions ($52 top, $37 bottom, victoriasecret.com).

    I am liking the tankini thing – my trouble though are my short legs – tankini bottoms don’t help that at all – but going from beach to bar and back all I need is a cute pair of jeans and the tankini top and I am good to go –

    This has got to be the absolute DUMBEST most insulting fashion advice article ever. WTF?? I know! Let’s show how women of ALL sizes can look great in a bikini…. by displaying said bikinis using toothpick models shaped like little boys in EVERY SINGLE picture. REALLY?? Do you even know what a PEAR SHAPED woman looks like? That ain’t it. Is this website created by men or are you that afraid to show the truth? Curvy is sexy. And no I’m not overweight, but I have a NORMAL women body complete with a butt and thighs and REAL breasts. This is so aggravating that nobody in society can get away from this toothpick image of the “ideal women”. Let’s make men even more misogynistic while we’re at it! And completely destroy all girls and women’s self esteem! This just makes me so disgusted with being part of the human race. End rant.
