Large bust: Choose halter-neck styles with thick straps that flatter the cleavage. Underwire support is a must. Small bust: Bandeau styles and triangle tops flatter smaller busts, while light colours on the top draws attention upwards. Push-up bras help give the illusion of fuller breasts. Long torso: One-piece cut-outs and bikinis break up the torso. Get crafty with embellishments, belts and ties at the hip and bust line to disguise a long frame. Avoid vertical stripes, high necklines and dark colours. Short legs: Go for high legs but remember to keep in mind how much skin you want to expose. Boy shorts are a definite no-no and make the legs look shorter. Large hips and thighs: Try suits with a skirted bottom. For tankinis, choose a dark bottom and a bright top to detract attention from the bottom. Hiding tummies: Many suits have tummy-control panels, while styles with gathers or draping hides bulges. Tankinis are great, especially styles with ruched sides. Plus sizes: One-piece suits with deep V-necklines and ruching details at the hips. Tankinis also work. Dark cool colours are best as are swirling patterns. Petite: Petite women can wear almost anything from boy-shorts bottoms to printed bandeau tops. But avoid one-piece swimsuits as it will make the torso look square.
