Let’s begin! What part of the body would you like to focus on?

BUST

Increase

Make the most of your natural bust with suits that offer subtle or serious enhancement. Extra padding is a great way to add some "oomph" to your shape or even add a cup size for a sexy look. You can also try fun and flirty details to add extra interest at your bust line.

Look for suits with:
Molded cups
Removable pushup padding
Gather detailing
Ruffles
“Enhancing” tops

Support

Bathing suit styles with lift and support will create a flattering silhouette and a comfortable fit. Try bikini tops with an underwire, adjustable shoulder straps, or built-in cups to add shape and support without extra padding. Halter tops are also a great way to show a sexy slip of cleavage.

Look for suits with:
Contoured seams
Boning at sides
Underwires
Adjustable straps
Wide bands or elastic under bust
Shelf bras
Molded cups

CURVES

Emphasize Your Curves

Discover dangerous curves with swimwear that will highlight your body in all the right places. If you want to create more of an hourglass silhouette, then try the interesting look of a cut out one-piece or mitered suit, which emphasizes curves and creates a feminine line. Keep your body balanced with fun and sexy details on both your top and bottom.

Look for suits with:
Princess seaming
Details on the top and bottom for a good balance
Same color or print on top and bottom

WAIST

Define

Find your figure and bring out the best of it with waist-defining styles. Generally, this body type has narrow hips, which can be emphasized for a more defined waistline. High-cut one-piece bathing suits and embellished bottoms are the perfect way to enhance your waistline!

Princess seaming
Details on the top and bottom for a good balance
Same color or print on top and bottom

Lengthen

Lengthening your waistline has a slenderizing effect and can make for an overall leaner looking body. Make your waist look longer and your hips look lower with cuts such as embellished and low-rise bikini bottoms. Monokini cutouts are also a great way to lengthen and enhance this area.
