How to choose your swimsuit based on your body shape?

To feel beautiful and comfortable on the beaches or by the pools, choosing your swimsuit according to your figure is very important. This allows you to highlight your strengths and hide your small imperfections.

But for this we would still need to know its morphology. Let's look at some tips for wearing your vintage Brigitte BARDOT swimsuits.

The A-shaped silhouette or pyramid

Your shoulders are thin and your hips are wider. This is the most common silhouette among women. It is a feminine and delicate silhouette.

What to wear?

Opt for abandeau orpush-up bikini top with colorful patterns, bold details and a plunging neckline. These will make your shoulders stand out and draw the eye towards your bust rather than your hips. If you want straps, choose a model with thin straps so as not to hide your pretty shoulders.

For the bottom, choose a low-cut model that will lengthen your legs.

The V silhouette or inverted pyramid

Your shoulders are broad or even square and your hips are small. This type of morphology is imposing. Women with a V-shaped figure look good, with an athletic look.

What to wear?

Pair an eye-catching bottom with a more discreet top to create balance and harmony.

Choose a top with a plunging neckline so as not to add material to the upper body.

As for bikini bottoms , opt for ruffled and frilly models , with prints or stripes, with the aim of accentuating your hips.
