The Best Bikinis for Your Body Type

Yes, you can look beachy keen!

Annalynne McCord

If your figure is straight up and down with very few curves, fake ‘em by slipping on a suit that boasts details (bows, ruffles) that add volume and visual interest like Annalynne McCord’s. Experiment with bold prints, give your boobs a boost with an underwire top, and look for bottoms that tie at the sides. Avoid solid colors and anything with no support.

Ties, a vibrant striped print and a halter/bandeau top add up to a flattering suit for curve-less cuties ($55, us.topshop.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.
