What costumes to choose for a pear shape

If you have wide hips and narrow shoulders, opt for a bikini. To divert attention from the lower part, choose a balconette bra: you will enhance your breasts, increasing their volume. A triangle top piece tied behind the neck will also highlight your shoulders.

Low-waisted briefs with laces, on the other hand, will allow you to harmonize your silhouette. Be aware that one-piece swimsuits tend to emphasize the waistline, and tend to shorten the legs.

In this case, we recommend the model with balconette and briefs with Yamamay laces € 23.90

If you have a hint of love handles, avoid straps that are too tight, they will tend to mark the hips too much and reproduce the "hated" bagged "effect.

And if you have a little belly, go for high-waisted swimsuits

Having a little bacon should definitely not make you think about giving up a bikini: remember that we are all real women, not models, and defects make us unique.
However, if you still feel a little uncomfortable, try opting for a retro-style bikini from the 1950s with a high-waisted bottom made perhaps with strategic seams that help you to better shape the belly area.

But if you really don't feel like it, try a Tankini - this new model of swimsuit, which arrived in stores a few years ago, offers a tank top, just to minimize the discomfort caused by a non-toned belly.
