HerRoom's "Underwearing" Series: Swimwear by Body Shape



Light Impact Sports Bras

Triangle


Accentuate the positive


The Shape:
The most common body type, a triangle-shaped figure is narrow through the shoulders and bust and proportionally wider through hips and thighs. Look for pieces that draw attention to the bust and minimize thighs and hips.

The Style:
In swimwear, separates are a wonderful thing--especially to add balance to your shape. Want to give the bust a little enhancement? Tommy Bahama Rainbow Palm Foam Cup Bra Swimwear 9302T has molded underwire cups for shape and cleavage. The bold print is bound to be an attention-getter.

Pair with Tommy Bahama Midnight Pearl Twist Front Hipster Swimwear 7712B in black. The sexy twist in front adds flair, while the cut provides modest coverage in the back. And the lower rise minimizes hips.

Juicy Couture 3/4 Dress with Gold Grommets JG000480 combines the soft absorbency of terrycloth with some eye-catching bling. The oversize grommets and rope tie at the neckline are certain attention-getters.


Medium Impact Sports Bra

Reverse Triangle


Balance will flatter your V-line shape


The Shape:
You're smaller through the hips and thighs with a larger bust. Like women with triangle-shaped figures, think 'balance.' Define the waist, accent your lower body and minimize the bust to create perfect proportions.

The Style:
The Fantasie Faro Underwire Balcony Bikini Top 5183 has a flattering sweetheart neckiine and 3-section underwire cups that lift and support. It's available in cup sizes up to HH, so you'll get great coverage while keeping the girls front and center.

Pair with Fantasie Faro Deep Brief 5187 , with its fold-over waist detail. Worn up, the waistband adds definition. Wear it folded over in a low-rise style to bring dimension to hips and lower torso.

Shaped like the season's hottest cardigans, Tommy Bahama Tulle Wrap Cardigan Swimwear 9702C cover-up has an asymmetrical hem, draped collar and raw edges at cuffs and hem.

Hourglass


When ya got it, flaunt it


The Shape:
Considered the classic female form, your curves are all in the right place--bust and hips proportional and a defined waistline. Go for the low v-necks, low-rise bottoms, stretchy fabrics and pretty solid colors.

The Style:
Get some hidden support under those playful ruffles with Aerin Rose Banded Swim Halter with Ruffle Bikini Top 71510. Underwire cups support without adding bulk and the halter-style ties add cute casual style.
Wear your flirty flounces on the bottom too, with matching Aerin Rose Scoop with Ruffle Swim Bottom 74910. Hi-cut leg openings create a long-legged look and the mid-rise styling shows just enough but not too much.

What could be more cool and comfy than cotton lawn? Tommy Bahama's Crinkle Cotton Lawn Smocked Back Dress Swimwear 5334C features an embroidered empire waist and smocked elastic back for a perfect flowing fit.


High Impact Sports Bras

Round


Highlight the curves

The Shape:
Great cleavage and great legs can be the draw for apple-shaped body types. Look for styles that create a waistline and help camouflage heaviness around the middle.

The Style:
MiracleSuit has made its name on styles that flatter and slim rounder figures. This Miraclesuit Pandora DD Cup One Piece Twist Top Swimsuit 67283DD has ruching and a twist front--both ideal for round shapes. The low cleavage draws attention upwards. Add firm control for tummy, waist and back and you'll be sunning in style.

Keep the style going with Fantasie Capri Kaftan 5213. The deep v-neck and empire waist flatter your figure perfectly, while the sheer fabric is a sexy way to cover up while showing it off.
