August 1, 2013 in Product Spotlights, Swimming

Women come in all sorts of wonderful shapes and sizes – and Swim2000 carries a wide variety of suits that cater to all those shapes! Everyone’s heard of an hourglass shape, but do you know what an apple or pear shape is? This handy guide will explain 5 shapes and how to pick an amazing suit for each type. Big thanks to Arena for the graphics and a good portion of the information!

Apple Shape Apple Shape
Embrace your body with a suit that supports your shape and compliments your assets. A ‘one colour’ suit with vertical panels or piping down the front of each side, curving inwards gives the impression of a waist. A swimsuit with built in bra and full body support will emphasise your soft curves.

Our Pick: Aqua Sphere Lima Round Back

  Pear Pear
You are all woman! Your wonderful lower curves may benefit from a ‘low leg cut’ swimsuit. Bright colour and design across the bust will emphasise and draw attention away from your womanly hips and bottom. Try a suit with a padded bra, it will certainly help boost your assets.

Our Pick: Aqua Sphere Acacia Body Shape Back

Inverted Triangle Inverted Triangle
You have a strong, athletic body shape. Flatter it by drawing attention away from the top half of your body but to your slender lower half. This can be done by wearing a suit that has bright colour and bold design to the lower section.

Our Pick: Speedo Empire Splice Adjustable Crossback

Ruler Ruler
Your body shape suits almost any swimsuit!. Vertical panels or piping down the front of the suit which curve inwards at each side give the appearance of a waist whilst cheeky padded cups only maximize your already admirable shape.

Our Pick: Aqua Sphere Anise Round Back

Hourglass Hourglass
Embrace your fabulous curves and enhance them further with a swimsuit that offers a cup sized bra. Opt for a back that provides chest support and adjustable straps. You have a wonderfully feminine body so why not honour it with bright colours and bold design.
