Not all women have the same body type. It is very important that you know and recognize what kind of characteristics yours has, in order to get the most out of your curves.

In many stages of life, women have had a hard time accepting the body we have; most of Sometimes we tend to compare ourselves with other people or to want to change some aspect of what we already are for nature. And we repeat that pattern every time we have a walk to the beach or put on a bathing suit.

We tell ourselves a thousand times in the mirror that we are not "ready" enough to go to that place. trip that we dream so much about, simply because we think that our bodies do not look good enough "perfect". And let's be honest, what is perfection? And do we really want to reach that standard of beauty What does society impose on us?

As a Personal Shopper, I have always been very much in agreement with the fact that if a person wants to change something appearance of your physique to look and feel much better with your body can do it; as long as love Self and respect come first. All this applies to exercise, nutrition and clothing with benefits that can help greatly improve a person's self-esteem.

And on many occasions the only thing you have to do to make your figure look better is to know your body better and Find out what clothes suit you best. It is not about completely changing what you already are, but about empowering all that so irresistible that you already have. Amazing, right? It is easier than you think.

So when we talk about bathing suits Do you know what favors you and what not so much? For example, we all know that having very pronounced hips is not the same as having, on the other hand, broader or more prominent shoulders. These characteristics vary from body to body, and the ideal is to get take advantage of those qualities to discover how we look and feel more confident in our own fur.

If there is something What I like to repeat to each person in all the consultancies I do is that each body is different, and that difference is precisely where the magic of each woman lies.

So, are you ready to identify yours and find out which ones are going to fit you? better than ever?

When buying a swimsuit to enjoy in the sun, I recommend looking for options that favor your body type, thus giving greater prominence to that area or areas that you want to highlight.
No matter what your build The secret is to give proportion to your shoulders, waist and hip!

Now the time has come to begin to know the different bodies that exist, since when speaking of forms we found 5 types:

1. Hourglass

The first type of body I want to talk to you about is the HOURGLASS. This silhouette is one of the “most desired” by all, since it alludes to the measures 90-60-90. It is characterized by having harmony between shoulders and hips, and her waist is smaller compared to these two.
This body is characterized by being very proportionate thanks to the marked waist and her curves pronounced, due to the difference in measurements between the waist with the shoulders and hips.

I want to tell you that although this body shape is the most "coveted", many women with these features often feel that their hips are too wide and tend to hide them most weather.
I perfectly remember a woman who had a spectacular hourglass body, and she didn't like to wear bikinis because she felt she had too much hip and she was not comfortable with it we all have insecurities, but it is useless to criticize ourselves all the time and expecting our body to be different!

So what will suit you if you have this type of body?

  • If you are an hourglass, almost all silhouettes and styles will suit you Dare to show off your body with that swimsuit that you like so much!
  • A tip that can help you to enhance your curves even more is to use trikinis, high waisted bikinis high or necklines that frame your silhouette.
  • If you want to show your abdomen, looking for a classic panty. Higher cut ones will create the illusion to have longer legs.
  • You can also look for garments that have waist details, for this to be the center of attention and you too!
  • Speaking of color, you can choose the ones you like the most, as most shades will look wow on you! It what I do recommend is avoid mixing patterns or colors between the bottom and top, so that your body continues to look harmonious.
  • 2. Rectangle:

    If you have this body type, your figure probably has a straighter appearance and your curves are poorly defined, this means that your shoulders, waist and hips have the same proportion or a Similary.
    I personally recommend that you try frame your waist with bathing suits that give you a much curvier appearance.

    So what will suit you if you have this type of body?

    • Choose contrasts and prints give you a curvier appearance
    • The trikinis and wholes with drapes at the waist will help you create an illusion of curves.

      This body type needs divert attention from your waist to other areas of the body that not your abdomen/waist, improving the body harmony that many women seek.
      This does not mean that you should look for a "swimsuit for chubby", it is just that each body fat accumulates in different parts, and in your particular case it is the abdomen.

          To people who have this form, I recommend that they try to attract attention in the hip part and accentuate your waist.

          For example, I completely identify myself with this type of body. I've always known that my shoulders are much wider than my hips and my back looks wider. Y if I'm honest, for many years I was not at peace with that, I wanted to look just like magazine models! But over time I learned that I could do a lot for my body if I chose the right swimsuit Now I feel better than ever when I wear these summer clothes!
