How to Pick a Bathing Suit for Your Body Type

Before diving into a few tips and tricks for choosing swimwear, here’s an important preface: You should wear any bathing suit that makes you feel good about yourself, regardless of any social pressures. Every body is beautiful, and every woman should feel comfortable and confident. With that said, below are a few helpful tips for choosing a swimsuit that flatters your body.

Wear the Proper Size

It can sometimes be tempting to size up a swimsuit for more coverage, but this can lead to a few problems along the way. The next-sized top might cover your bust or bottom a little more, but when it’s wet, it’s also likely to sag or drape in unflattering ways. When picking a bathing suit for your body type, it’s imperative to choose one that fits correctly. If you don’t like the way it looks on your body, don’t size up; choose another suit, instead.

When in Doubt, Choose a Sexy One-Piece

Bikinis are the most popular swimwear around the globe, especially on tropical beach destinations. It may feel like you need to wear a bikini for social acceptance, but this is not at all the case. In fact, there are plenty of one-piece bathing suits that offer lots of sex appeal and glamour. The Clifton 4th One Piece swimsuit features a deep-cut halter top, high-cut legs, and a flattering bottom that shows plenty of booty. It is more modest than most bikinis, but still perfectly on trend. It comes in black or blue to suit your preferences.

Use Color to Balance Your Body

Color can be used as a powerful tool for creating balance. For example, if you have a large bust and tiny booty, but you want your body to look more proportional and balanced, wear a lighter color on the bottom and a darker color on top. If you have a small bust and an ample booty, the opposite is true: wear a lighter color on top and a darker one on the bottom. On the other hand, if you want to highlight and emphasize your bust or your bottom, wear light or bright solid colors.

The Perks of a String Bikini

If you’re not quite sure what sort of fit you want, or if you prefer different levels of modesty for different types of beaches or places, a string bikini may be your best friend. The Clifton 3rd Bikini collection (featuring a top and bottom in two floral prints and black) is flirty, feminine, and sexy. The top features cups that you can adjust for a barely-there fit or full coverage, and the bottom can be tied high or low on the hip to suit your body. Better still, you can mix and match these pieces for color balancing or personal taste.


When choosing a bathing suit for your body, there are two things to keep in mind: comfort and modesty. Bikinis and one-piece suits come in countless cuts and colors, which can feel overwhelming at times. At the end of the day, if you feel comfortable in what you are wearing, and if it offers the level of modesty you prefer, it’s perfect.
