Step 1: Set aside time Set aside at least an hour to try on a variety of suits. You might be surprised by what works best, so don't reject any style outright. Step 2: If pear-shaped If you're pear-shaped—your bottom is bigger than your top—separates are a good choice. Strapless or halter tops in fun prints can be paired with a solid bottom. This draws attention to shoulders and away from hips and thighs. Tip Steer clear of boy shorts if you're pear-shaped. They tend to make hips look wider. Step 3: If apple-shaped Apple-shaped gals—those with thicker waists and some tummy—can give the illusion of a slimmer midsection in a control one-piece with shirring around the waist. If you prefer a two-piece, try retro high-waisted bikini bottoms. Step 4: If top heavy If you have a full bust, make sure you're properly supported—you might need underwire, fuller straps, and extra claps. A suit or bikini bottoms with a decorative element—like bows or ties—on the hips will create the impression of an hour-glass figure. Step 5: If long torso Break up a long torso with a patterned bikini. Skip the solid-color one-pieces, which will make short legs look even shorter. Step 6: If short Height-challenged? A one-piece in a solid color with a plunging neckline will lengthen the body. A high-cut leg is also a flattering option. Tip If you're pale-skinned, consider getting a fake tan the day before you try on swimwear—it will help your body look thinner and more toned, making the process more enjoyable. Step 7: If uncurvy Athletic and boyish bodies can benefit from a push-up bikini top, which helps create curves. Ruffles and frills around the bust and hips also will add fullness, and boy shorts will make hips look curvier. Step 8: Celebrate Admire your new suit, and give yourself a pat on the back for your perseverance. Now go out there and celebrate the sun, the surf, and your own beautiful body! Did You Know? The average American woman tries on ten swimsuits before buying one.
