Many people struggle with finding the right one-piece swimsuit. Whether shopping online or in store, finding a swimsuit that offers the perfect fit can be a real challenge. Thankfully, Miraclesuit one-piece swimsuits come in a variety of styles and cuts to fit and flatter any body type.
This simple guide was designed to help you find the right Miraclesuit swimsuit to accentuate your unique figure and give you the look you want.
Find a Great One-Piece Bathing Suit by Body Type
If you want to get the right swimsuit for your shape, you first need to know what type of figure you have. Below is a list of the general body types that most women have. You might not fall exactly into one of these categories but figuring out which shape best describes your figure can help you make the right decision when shopping for a one-piece bathing suit.
Rectangle Body Shape:
First, a rectangle-shaped figure consists of a longer torso with equal hip and shoulder widths. With this shape, you’ll want to go for bolder one-piece swimsuit styles to add curves and accentuate your slim waist. Exciting print patterns and color-blocked swimsuits can add curves and give you a more defined shape. Features like ruffles, plunging necklines, and fabric ruching will help accentuate those curves and showcase your best figure.
Triangle/Pear Body Shape:
A triangle or pear-shaped figure holds the majority of its weight in the lower half of the body. This body shape tends to combine wider hips and thighs with a slimmer waist and shoulder area. If you fall into this category, try one-piece swimsuits that will accentuate your shoulders and upper body. Features like wider straps and halter tops draw attention to the shoulders, while molded cups fill out your bustline to help balance out your lower body.
Inverted Triangle Body Shape:
An inverted triangle figure tends to have a wider upper body. With this body shape, the shoulders and bust area are more prominent than the hips and waist. If you’re not careful, an ill-fitting one-piece swimsuit can make you look somewhat out of proportion. With an inverted triangle body type, you want to accentuate your lower body. Try a bathing suit with a print pattern. This will help balance your silhouette out. Steer clear of strapless swimsuits as they draw more attention to the bust and neckline.
Round/ Apple Body Shape:
A round or apple figure pairs a fuller chest and upper body with a very minimal waist. If this sounds like your body type, you’ll want to find a one-piece swimsuit that draws attention to your lower body. Ruching or layering around the waist can help define your chest and hip area better and give you a more balanced appearance. Thicker straps and molded cups with underwire will help support and shape your bust to accentuate your best features.
Hourglass Body Shape:
The hourglass figure is usually the most desired, and it consists of a fuller chest, slimmer waist, and hips equal in width to the shoulders. If you have this figure, most one-piece swimsuits will do wonders for your shape. Most one-piece styles are good for playing up the features that you want to show off. Avoid overly bold patterns and strapless styles though as these can throw off your figure’s natural proportions.
