Best Swimsuits for Apple Shaped Body
Many of us are in a seemingly never ending battle with a spare tire that sits around the lower waist. Trying to find swimwear that hides those unwanted curves can become downright depressing for some. So we've come up with a comprehensive list of bathing suit styles that can make you feel a little bit leaner, more confident and keep your mind where it should be, enjoying the sun, your family, a good book or just a lazy summer's day.
Create an Illusion
Swimwear that gathers on the side or in the middle can create an illusion of a smaller waist. These can typically be found under the category Surplice Swimsuits
Add an Effect
When you add a pattern or texture to a swimsuit that is gathered to the side, or overlapping down the middle, it can highlight the upper waistline giving you an effect of a more cuvacious body.
A deep neckline in a bathing suit can generate a vertical accent drawing the eye up and down, accentuating the bust and elongating the body.
A high waisted bikini bottom with control panels can flatten your tummy and smooth out some of the lumps and bumps. Team it with a shirred tankini top or a-line tankini top to complete the look.
Alternatively try a one piece swimsuit with a colorful top and a plain bottom to draw the emphasis away from the waist region.
Ruffle it Up
Well placed overlapping ruffles can help conceal a larger lower waist, with a flirty, baby doll look dropping from an empire waist often called Blouson Swimwear.
Get your Dress On
If you want to cover your upper thighs as well, a swim dress would be the best option. Try a modern, sporty swim dress that will make you feel like a top flight athlete who has got the style dial turned up to 11.
Colorful curved side panels in a one piece swimsuit can also help give the effect of a more streamlined body from the front and rear view
