    The silhouette of your body shape is fairly straight up and down, with a slight masculine look.  Your bust and hips are approximately at the same width and you have little or no waist definition.

    So go for...
     
    • Girly styles: ruffles, bows, pleating – styles that will add a curvy shape to your frame
    • Prints and patterns work wonderfully
    • On the top: halter-necks work great giving you more defined shoulders and a lifted cleavage for shape
    • On the bottom: tie sides and more feminine styles
    • One-pieces work if cut in a flattering feminine way, do have fun here!
    • Avoid horizontal stripes

    Also known as triangle – you have hips larger than your bust and you have a wonderfully defined waist. Most pears have an elegant neck and proportionately slim arms and shoulders. The majority of woman fall into this category. 

    So go for...
     
    • On the top: anything to grab attention – prints, patterns, bold and bright colours, detailed necklines and eye-catching embellishments
    • Also, halter-necks, moulded cups and bandeau styles work great
    • Tankinis also work wonderfully
    • On the bottom: High-cut or hipster waist and darker colours
    • Avoid boyish, shapeless cuts on the bottom
  • Hourglass

    Your bust and hips are proportionate and you have a beautifully defined waist. Your side and front profile are very feminine.

    So go for...
     
    • You can largely wear what you want but figure-hugging pieces which show off your curves are best
    • Triangle tops and string bikinis work great – anything from bandeau to halter-neck
    • Prints are good, but not on one-piece suits as they will negate your curves
  • Cone

    You are

    Cone if...

    Your shoulders are a little larger than your hips. Cone is the most athletic look with a large bust, narrow hips and thin legs (otherwise you are more rectangular shaped)

    So go for...
     
    • On top wide-strapped halter tops to secure/flatter and provide support – they also provide a better lift
    • Underwire tops and wide bands also help, plus anything adjustable
    • V-neck swimsuits work great and will elongate your body
    • Avoid tankinis and high necklines as they will make you look heavier on top
  • Diamond

    You are

    Diamond if...

    Your hips are broader than your bust, plus you have an undefined midsection. Your lower legs are shapely with proportionately slender and shapely arms.

    So go for...
     
    • For the best look try cinching in your waist, try one-pieces with a belt to create a more hourglass look
    • Ruched and block colours are also immensely flattering with one-pieces
    • Tankinis also work great
    • With two-pieces try darker bottoms to tops, especially high cut bottoms to  elongate your legs
    • Avoid tiny prints – you are trying to avoid attention to the mid-section and create  a more define waistline
