Swimwear should fit YOUR body, not the other way around.
But how do you choose what cut is right for you without trying to fit a mould the fashion industry dictates?
Ample or a handful?
Tall or petite?
Muffin top or straight up and down?
Scars or war wounds?
Get ‘em all ready for your jelly. Find your perfect swimwear fit right here:
I’ve been designing swimwear for 9 or so years and the one thing that women ALWAYS ask me is “ how do you know which swimwear styles suit your shape?” In the past body shapes have been described using all different types of labels, but fruit seems to be the most popular choice… are you an apple, a pear… a banana?!? Seriously, a banana?
The problem with those types of labels is that very rarely do we fully identify with being “one shape” because each and every one of us is different and our bodies are constantly changing. Plus, I’ve never, ever, ever seen anyone who looks like a banana.
I put this swimwear for your shape guide together as a quick reference, to help you identify which of these shapes you connect with.
It’s a short and sweet introduction to what “works” for you. I say “works” because most women want to flatter their shapes.
Some want to conceal, some want to enhance what they have.
Some don’t give AF about what flatters and if that’s you, then you probably should just head straight to the shopping cart and buy whatever catches your eye.

Finding the right swimsuit for your bust can be a challenge. there are a number of options including straps, underwires, cups and ties. Let’s take a look at a few common body shapes and some possible solutions…
There are a few options here for our smaller chested sisters and illusion is the key. Of course, you can opt for padding/inserts etc however if you would prefer to work with what you have, then go for something that creates movement and shape near your bust. Frills, flounces, and ruffles are the perfect optical illusion to create a bigger bust.
