Pear shape (Narrow waist, wide bottom):

Having a figure a la Beyonce, doesn’t necessarily mean you always feel blessed about it, and esp. not at a beach. ‘Coz one can easily get self-conscious about full hips and thighs. And if you feel the same, you must opt for swimsuits that will accentuate your waist. Style tip: Go for monokinis with side cutouts, it sculpts the midsection taking away the focus from your

Hourglass shape (Large bust):

The proverbial figure ‘8’, it’s a dream to have such a body. Apparently less than 10 per cent of women have this ideal figure. But a well-endowed chest also needs a bikini top that would offer plenty of support, just the way a bra would. Paired with a bottom that will give a full-coverage. Style tip: With wide, adjustable straps and metal clasps, our strappy bikini sets will both flatter and support your bust.

Small bust:

The best part of being small-chested is you can wear the teensiest of bikinis and throw caution to the wind! You can wear deep halters or strapless, you can look amazing without getting self-concious. Style tip: If you want to give an illusion of a larger chest, then go for a flouncy or a ruffled top that will have a bit of a light padding. Or else, opt for bright halter bikinis that will get you noticed wherever you go.

Athletic shape (compact):

Girls with an athletic shape have a slender silhouette, basically someone whose shoulders, waist and hips are all nearly of the same proportions – eg: Deepika Padukone. It’s awesome to have such a body, ‘coz when it comes to bikinis, there’s nothing in the swimwear world that won’t suit you. Style tip: To give an illusion of more curves go with a cross-wrap top which offers both padding and gathering. You can also opt for more prints than solids to add a little feminine effect to your shape.

Love handles/ A tummy pouch:

Bikinis can make or break your beach look. Get it right, you’ll feel totally awesome. Get it wrong, and the rest of your beach vacay can turn depressing. And with a problem like love handles or a tummy pouch, it can get a little tricky to find the right swimsuit. Style tip: To camouflage that bulge, go for a high-waist bottom that extends above your belly button to prevent a muffin top. Or you can go for a peplum-styled swimsuit that has slendering effect.
