Heads up everyone—there are a few new swimsuit trends on the horizon that are making us crave summer more than any other year before. Now, we are well aware that swimsuits are not a one-style-pleases-all sort of arrangement, and as we present the five new swimsuit styles we’re most excited for this season, we tried to keep that in mind. Your bikinis and one-pieces are a very personal choice, as what feels good on you might not appear in the same way for someone else, and no one except for you can decipher that.
So instead of categorising what you should buy according to your body by “shape” (whatever that means), we decided to break down the five new swimsuit trends ahead according to the part of your body you love the most. No matter what your shape or size, you know there are certain parts you love more than others, and today, we are here to help you shop according to that aspect of your body type.
Below, read up on the five swimsuit trends that can be adapted to suit each and every focus area you’d like to highlight.
If you love your shoulders/arms: If accentuating your arms and shoulders is your goal, opt for either strapless, off-the-shoulder, one-shoulder, or halter styles. Each of those silhouettes will draw all the attention to your upper body and really highlight one of your favourite features.
If you love your legs: High cuts, either on bikini bottoms or one-pieces, immediately extend the length of your natural leg line. If you want to show off your stunning limbs, why cut off the line of your leg when you can extend it? This ’80s-style suit will do just that.
If you love your waist: The best way to show off your waist, you ask? Belted swimwear is one of our must-try swimsuit trends generally speaking, but for those of you who love your mid-section, it’s even more desirable. High-rise bottoms are also brilliant at drawing attention towards your midsection.
If you love your fuller chest: One of the easiest ways to make the most your chest is by way of an underwire top in styles ranging from triangle to a more bra-inspired demi-cup. Also halter tops! Underwire styles also create a more supportive lift, meaning you can walk around confidently knowing everything is going to stay in its place.
