Apple-Shaped Swimsuit Ideas
For Apple Shapes: The Wondrous Wrap
Do you carry extra weight around your midsection (commonly referred to as an "apple" shape)? Then look for a fun, wrap swimsuit to create the illusion of a toned tummy. Just like a wrap-style dress, this type of swimsuit will create the look of a cinched, pretty little waist, drawing attention to your strong legs and curves.
This Gottex Ray of Light one-piece suit features a flattering wrap style as well as angled straps to make your waist look super small. (Find it at Amazon.com.)
For Apple Shapes: The Very Sexy V-Neck
Want to really flatter your figure, you lovely litte apple? Try a V-neck swimsuit style! This type of suit not only offers added support up top, but will help draw all eyes upward and away from your tummy. Want to really feel your best? Find a V-neck swimsuit that has some ruching around the midsection for added camouflage.
This Jantzen Women's Casablanca V-Neck pairs a dramatic plunge with pin-tuck details around the straps and a very flattering shirred bodice. (Find it at Amazon.com.)
Hourglass-Shaped Swimsuit Ideas
For Hourglass Shapes: The Lovely Lift Up

The best option is a structured suit with soft molded cups (or underwire). This will give your best assets a boost, and have you looking and feeling more confident as you run, jump and play on the beach and in the water.
This Jag Women's Underwire Tankini provides the extra support you need. (Find it at Amazon.com.) Continued ›
