The Best Suits for your Shape: Hourglass

This week we are focusing on the oh so coveted hourglass shape. An hourglass represents someone whose bust and hips are about the same width, but has a waist that is significantly smaller. Famous women throughout history have made this curvy shape one to strive for.  Marilyn Monroe, Kim Kardashian and even Barbie are among the many names synonymous with this body type.

Although this may be the standard of beauty that many women try to replicate, like all body shapes, hourglasses have their own set of difficulties when trying to find the perfect suit. Look for bathing suit tops that provide additional support such as triangle and halter tops with underwire. With a traditionally slim waist try a high waisted vintage inspired bottom.  By keeping the bikini bottoms high-cut it will help to make your legs look longer as well. If a one-piece is more your style keep the bottom high-cut as you would in a bikini and look for a halter with a deep V for a sexy, flattering fit. Avoid boyshort bottoms and bandeau tops as they will make you look wider in these areas.

Stick with these easy to follow tips and you will look fabulous this summer!
