The only guide you’ll need to choose swimwear that suits your body shape

It's summer season and we've got everything you need to know when it comes to workin' that bikini!

Okay so summer is here and we may or may not have achieved our goal summer bod (Hint: we didn't). However, it's important to address that I think lots of women look amazing in their own individual way. Alas, we all have our own insecurities and that's okay. All you need to do is find the perfect bikini style that will suit your body and voila! You'll be looking like a Victoria's Secret model in no time.

Scroll down to check out our list of amazing bikini styles to suit your body...

1. Big Boobs

As someone who suffers from Jessica Rabbit syndrome, finding something that fits, holds the girls in, is supportive AND looks good is practically impossible. Plus, a lot of the time you get stuck with ugly bikinis that look like shopping bags holding two watermelons rather than a hot bikini.

A halter neck with thick straps and underwire is often a popular choice, but in my own experience, my neck gets sore and it's not a fun time. This orange strappy bikini is perfect for locking in the ladies and still looking hot to trot, and the strappy bottoms will also balance out the attention from the top to the bottom.


2. Small Boobs

If you're a part of the itty bitty titty committee then fear not, we've got you covered. Ruffles, frills and texture is everything you want! You're pretty lucky because you can basically wear any bikini style but if you're looking to add a little volume to your chest area then this is the way to go.

Check out this crinkle and gingham bikini is perfect to add some volume to the girls as well as attention to your lower half with a fun gingham print.


3. Broad Shoulders

For those with broad shoulders, balancing everything out can be a bit tricky. Work on finding a v-cut neckline bikini and avoiding the square or box neckline as this will make you look more 'boxxy'. Plus avoid the high waisted bikini bottoms and go for some low riders to again get that balance going!

This red low cut is perfect for accentuating curves in all the right places!


4. Big Booty

To be completely honest with you, having a bum is totally in! You can thank Kimmy K for that one.

But alas if you're wishing to minimise your behind, then get a one piece with bottoms that have a fair amount of coverage and an aspect that brings attention to your top half rather than the bottom.

For example patterned one piece draws attention to your top half rather than the bottom!


5. Little Booty

As someone who does unfortunately suffer from flat bum syndrome, the illusion of a bigger bum is always something I'm after.

The trick to catfishing everyone into thinking you're a Kylie rather than a Kendall is getting a little cheeky. Look for bottoms that show a little flesh and seam in the middle! These gold bottoms perfectly show some (non-existent) curves.


6. Love Handles

Look, we've all got them! Having a little bit of love handle is nothing to worry about. However if your looking to make them a littler more flattering then high-waisted bikini bottoms are the way to go. Plus, they're totally back in!

These stunning pastel blue shirred bottoms would do the trick and look darn good at the same time.


7. Back Fat

Back fat. It's pesky and totally annoying. Unfortunately, you will have to avoid the low back style of one pieces and bikinis to avoid an unflattering fit. Luckily, there are still so many stunning one pieces out there to rock your own.

This metallic one piece has got you completely covered and even debuts a stunning square neckline that is totally in right now!


8. Short Legs

Short leg syndrome. Unfortunately there isn't much us shorties can do about it except trick everyone into thinking we're taller than we are. How? High cut bottoms. They're about to change your life. Whilst they're very 80s retro and 'lets get physical', we're definitely into it.

These yellow high cut are the perfect example of what to look for when discovering your new long legs!
