Swimwear Shopping Guide for the Curvy woman
Curvy: You're curvy throughout with a full bust, hips, thighs, and butt like Christina Hendricks or Scarlett Johanson.
What to look for: For curvy frames, the key is to highlight your curves while providing enough support and coverage. If you're not keen on exaggerating your curves, then steer clear of monokinis or string bikinis with thicker ties, which can accentuate your widest areas.
Tips and tricks from Savita, fit and style expert for The Beach Company:
- Asymmetrical suits draw the eye toward the neckline, highlighting the beautiful line from a woman’s neck to her collarbone.
- Colorblocking can help highlight your shape, as do retro suits (think high waists and boxy halter tops).
