Check out this hot little number. The halter top will bring attention to your..umm…assets, and the ruching will disguise any areas you may want to hide.


Create curves by wearing swimwear with added frills. The flirty ruffles add an ultra-feminine touch to bring out your inner girly girl.

Belly Pooch:

Ahhh the belly pooch. The enemy of many women. Impossible to get rid of and difficult to hide. But, don’t you fret! I’ve found the right style for you. Pick a suit with bottoms that fold over. They can be adjusted to sit just wear you want.

Long Torso:

A chic cut out style will break up your lengthy middle and get you looking fabulous. Also, try horizontal stripes to offset your figure.

Bigger on the Bottom:

Show off your shapely behind, and do it in style! Avoid boy shorts that make your bottom half look wider. Instead, choose string styles that bare a whole lotta thigh. Or try a tankini to lengthen you. Just remember that higher cut bottoms will flatter you best.

Bigger on Top:

Alright you busty ladies. We all know that fitting those girls into a flimsy string bikini isn’t the best option. We need support! Slip into a suit with supportive underwire. Or, you can opt for a structured strapless style to fit your curves.

    Those monokinis (one pieces with the sides cut out) scream Paris Hilton to me, but they do sound like a good idea for women with long torsos. Love the suits you picked out, Shannon!

    Ooooooh! Great post! I bought a suit that had this awesome feature on the bottoms. There was a drawstring that I could pull to create rouching at the hip area. It made them look SO cute and girly while hiding my hip area perfectly.
