Shopping for swimsuits can be a total nightmare. So when luxe swimwear company Sunbain offered a guest post on how to find flattering swimsuits for your body type, I knew they’d have great suggestions. Not to mention, some pretty fab swimsuits, too! Here are some quick swimsuit shopping tips they offered.


  • Wear patterns and bolder colors
  • Want to show off some cleavage? Try triangle tops!
  • Skirted bottoms are right on trend and great for extra coverage

  • Halter tops create a fuller bust line and balance your torso
  • One piece suits are elegant and seductive

  • Ruffles are a great way to add curves and totally stylish
  • Strapless bikinis are sexy and they mean no tan lines

At the end of the day, the sexiest suit is what you feel most comfortable in.Play around with different styles and chic coverups until you find something you absolutely love. A few other tips to keep in mind:

  • If your bust is smaller, try ruffles which give the illusion of a fuller bust
  • If your buttocks is bigger, a V-neck will help to elongate your torso
  • To hide your tummy, try a high waisted or skirted swimsuit style

For more gorgeous styles, check out Sunbain. Their 2015 collection is an adventure in color and boldness in swimwear.
