Choosing The Right Pair Of Bathers For Your Body Type

It’s no surprise that every woman is gifted with a different body shape. Whether you have a triangle or an hourglass body shape, we are here to let you know that it is perfectly normal and we have the perfect swimsuits to suit your body shape. At Curvy by Capriosca Swimwear we design and create swimwear that is suitable for each body shape to ensure the perfect fit. We are going to have a look at the five most common body shapes and let you know what styles best suit you and what they look like on.

Triangle: If you are someone with a triangle body shape, this being larger hips than the rest of your body, then we would recommend a suit to add volume to your bust line. The options that are the best for a triangle shape body are a bandeau swim dress or a flouncy swimsuit as it will really balance you out and extenuate your bust. Having a lighter colour around your bust and a darker colour from the waist down is also a great way to balance out your body shape too.

Heart: If you have a heart shape body then you would have a larger bust area in comparison to the lower half of your body. Your body would generally slim down more towards your hips and have a narrow midsection of your body. Heart shape bodies are going to be better off with a separate top and bottom as generally due to this body shape you tend to be a much smaller size on the bottom. We recommend a bikini set or a tankini top and bottom for all ladies with a heart body shape.

Diamond: A diamond body shape is characterised by having an undefined waistline, wide hips and larger upper thighs. We believe that a diamond body shape most suits our 3 tier style in a tankini and one piece. This style is a very flattering style with the frills coming down in a point which essentially gives you shape. It is a fun and traditional swimsuit style with three layers to give you a little bit of sass and shape.

Hourglass:Well lucky you! Isn’t it the dream to have a well-balanced hourglass body? If this is you then congratulations, you can wear pretty much everything! From a bikini set, a one piece or a tankini, your body is going to rock all styles. Show off your body, small waist, round shoulders and round bum with a bikini! A bikini will we the ideal swimsuit to showcase your waist and amazing body shape.

Rectangle: If you have the same measurements for the main section of your body, hips, bust and waist then you have a rectangle body shape or commonly known as the model body shape! For those with a rectangle shape your body is really going to suit our zip up one piece as this will give you shape. We also have the Inca and Peacock Feather Sport One Pieces. The sportier look would really suit your body as it also creates shape and is really flattering on this type of figure.

We provide not only the perfect swimsuit for you and your body shape, but we also produce sarongs and kaftans that can make your beach day that extra bit more enjoyable. Every woman has a different body shape and it’s completely normal. Embrace your shape and find the right pair of bathers for your body type. We really believe that everyone has the perfect swimsuit out there for them and we are here to help you find it! All of our designs and patterns are available atwww.curvyswimwear.com.

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
