Which Suit Would Look Best on My Body?

Posted by Kathy Hall Owner on

Specifically which suit that carries would look best on you?

Let's go by body type first

  Triangle Type: large bust smaller hips:

We have several suits that work with this type of body.  In Chlorine Resistant suits, the Cross Over tank in the Krinkle fabric from Penbrooke looks great and works both as a water aerobics suit and a lounge by the pool suit:

Krinkle Cross Over Tank                We also carry Cross Back and Active Backs in D Cups.

The Reebok Zig Zag tank will wow everyone at the pool.  While it doesn't have the lasting power of a Krinkle suit, the Extra Life Lycra in this suit makes it a hard working suit, perfect for playing in waves, water skiing or body surfing. The shirring up the front will hide a tummy and minimize your bust.

                                                                                           Reebok Zig Zag Tank Suit        

 Rectangle Type:  Straight up and down, no waist

If you don't have a waist, you can create one visually.  Keep an eye out for diagonal lines - they will really help make it look like you have a waist! 

                        This Reebok suit has Xtra Life Lycra for long wear.  

Draping on one side will also help create a waist:           

Apple Type: Waist larger than bust or hips:

If you have gained weight in the waist, as we all seem to do as we age, look for shirring up the middle of a suit to disguise it:   

                                    Maxine Spa Suit Mandalay Print The Maxine Spa suit is 100% polyester   

Sometimes a design feature that looks like it would make a problem worse actually makes it better. Magicsuit is all about making you look slimmer, and they add this drape which actually hides a tummy:

                             Magicsuit Lisa One-Piece                    

This top will do double duty as a top to go out at night:
