For those who are big chested

When you are looking for a swimsuit that not only looks good but can actually be used for swimming Hapari is the right destination. Many of us have had the experience looking for playful swimwear styles but find difficulty spotting the best options for those of us on the big-busted side (blush).

You don’t have to feel top heavy or try to hide what you’ve been blessed with. If you’ve got a little more up top, go for a tankini rather than a bikini or one piece – with a tankini, you can mix and match your size to make sure you have all the support you need.

Choose a simple pattern with plenty of structure (such as a built in bra or adjustable straps). Avoid horizontal stripes between your waist, as this will only make you look larger than you are. To get a flattering division between your hips and chest, look for suits that have slight tailoring under the breasts or at the waist.

For those who are pear shaped

You’re likely not the first to have heard that when you are a bit more full below than on top it can be difficult trying to find a suitable suit! The key here isn’t just finding the right swimwear but also knowing how to wear it. Here are a few quick tips:

If you have a little bit more on your hips, find boy short bottoms that will help elongate your lower body. Be careful not to wear skirts with ruffles, as this will only make you wider at the hips. Draw the eye to your bust or your waist by choosing a deep neckline. This is often one of the more overlooked details. It can be easy to fall into the flatter of skirts and ruffles, but sometimes what looks great on the rack doesn’t come out the way expected when on.

Selecting a design that accentuates your waist with a little embellishment will go a long way towards making your hips look and feel slimmer. We have quite a few designs that fit exactly this purpose!

For those who have a small bust

If you don’t have a whole lot up top no need to worry! We’ve got you covered. Look for halter tops that bring things together. With a petite frame you can go a little more daring with the design, choosing a pattern that is fun and flirty.

If you like, try a tankini or bikini top that allows for inserts – this will help you look like you have more than you really do. If you want to draw attention away from your chest, find a ruffled swim skirt that will bring the eye lower.

The size of your chest really isn’t an issue when it comes to looking great a in a swimsuit. After all, we know beauty certainly comes in all sizes and shapes. But knowing which swimwear may be most flattering and just how to accentuate those areas are key for the look.

For those who are plus sized

For many plus size women the thought of even going out in a swimsuit doesn’t seem right. But I assure you, it will work out! Plus size fits in swimwear often maintain the same look, feel and flattery of any other.

Wide straps are your friend – and so is added support. Look for a suit that provides adequate coverage for your back, and emphasize your cleavage rather than your legs.

A simple pattern in darker colors will help you look slimmer, but don’t shy away from interesting detail.

Shopping for swimsuits is hard work, but with these tips in mind, you can find a suit that is not only fashionable, but flattering as well.
