Ask ThinkThru: What Are Good Swimsuits For Pear Shapes?

Swimsuits That Flatter Pear Shapes

What kind of swimsuit suits a pear shape best? โ€”pinktulip

The most important part about picking out a swimsuit for a pear shape is to find styles that draw attention to the upper half. Mixing and matching is ideal. Pair a bright or printed bikini or tankini top with a dark solid bottom. Halters are the most flattering since they broaden the shoulders, which balances out a larger bottom half. Stay away from bandeau tops. They’ll just make you look flatter. And boy-shorts are a big n-o.

One-pieces are another great option for pear shapes. Try one that features fringe or ruffles on top with a deep v-neck to keep the eyes focused on your upper half.

    I think the plunging necklines for the one pieces are super sexy and don’t give the usualy “mom” feel!
