5 Swimsuit Styles for the Everyday Woman


5
One-piece

Swimming suit manufacturers are fully aware that one style does not fit all, so there are many one-piece options for different kinds of bodies these days. Suits for pear shaped figures have ruffles or patterns up top, creating balance by drawing attention to your upper body, while suits with molded and padded cups offer a little more in the bust department if that's where you need help. If you have issues in the stomach area, look for suits with a minimizer that helps keep everything sucked in or ruching to disguise your tummy. And if you're long and lean, the right one piece can help add a little bit of curviness.
