Curvy Cover-Ups

We asked our Facebook and Instagram followers to share their questions when it comes to shopping for swimsuits –– and now we have answers! Checkout our gallery and video with our swimsuit solutions and a few body type basics below from Kellie Brown for Swimsuitsforall to get you started.


Cone - The most important fit feature when you're top heavy is support. You definitely want your "girls" sitting in the right place! While you may want to avoid bandeau styles you can opt for a sexy one shoulders suit.

Round - Rounder girls can use color and patterns to elongate their bodies. Ombre style suits are so on-trend and the gradient colors are universally flattering.

Triangle - Here's where bandeaux styles work best. There are also so many options for bottoms that provide more coverage including skirted bottoms and boy shorts.

Petite - Again, bathing suits are about proportions, so the smaller the girl, the smaller her swimsuit can be. Now that doesn't mean skimpy. A higher cut at the hip can elongate your legs and a great ruffle detail at the bust create curves.

Hourglass - There's no hotter style right now than the retro high-waisted bikini. This style works on nearly all body types but it's especially flattering on an hour glass. The high-waisted style really shows off a narrow mid-section.
