beach. But finding and choosing the right bikini to wear can be quite difficult. Which style suits

mation in our style guide can help you choose the perfect bikini or swimsuit for your figure.
What’s in fashion?
1. Monokinis are very trendy this year. There are many different versions that reference
the colour block fashion and one with a palm print. Swimsuits have been given a makeover by
adding an element of asymmetry and mixing smooth shiny fabrics with transparent materials.
The perfect tan
2. Visible tan lines can be unsightly. One way to avoid them is to wear a multi-strap bikini,
which you can worn as a halter or without the straps. Another option is the strapless top with
nice removable chain detail.
Small cup sizes:
3. Create the impression of more volume with some simple tricks such as a dense print, bright
colours, shiny fabrics, a triangle bikini (with slightly separated cups) or a (strapless) maximiser
bikini, which makes your breasts look two cup sizes larger.
Larger cup sizes:
4. Support is the keyword. A top with underwired cups and broad shoulder straps is a must-
have if you have a cup size on the large side. Choose a bikini top that fits well and stay away
from ruching, beads and bows.
If you want to make your hips look a little wider, go for bottoms with a print. Bottoms
with a tie string work well by accenting the hips. Monokinis suit relatively straight figures.

including a waistband that you can turn down, or tie-strings that let you adjust how you wear the
A triangle bikini creates a broad V line, which makes your shoulders look broader. Halter
style tops also make your shoulders look broader. If you want a sexy look, highlight your breasts
with an eye-catching top such as the halter maximiser.
Tops with straps that pass vertically over your shoulders are a good choice because they break
up the horizontal line. Various styles are available, so you can choose one that suits your breasts well.
