Apple shape: If you have a waist that is equal to your bust size and little lesser than your hips, you have an apple shaped body. You can focus on colours and prints more than patterns. Choose dark colours as it tends to hide fat and prints will just take away all the attention from your wide waist area.

Lastly, once you have figured out your body type, make sure you go to the right store to buy it. Do your research. There are brands in the market that only specialize in swimsuits and that should be the right pick for you. A local store may not have the right pattern for you. Ensure that any of the stores you go to, there is a trial room there as unless you try it, you won’t know what you are comfortable in. At least when you are buying it for the first time. Once you know your brand, you will know the exact size and pattern that suits you and fits you. You can then choose to shop online too.
So ladies, as you can read, there are dozens of options in swimming costumes available in the market. All you need is the right fit for your body. Don’t forget comfort. No matter how trendy and cool your bodysuit is, it won’t suit you if you are not going to be comfortable in it. Hope this blog helps you pick the right one for yourself.
