Fab Body Guide, Part Three: The Ideal Swimsuit For Your Special Quirks

We all have our special quirks. Some of us are self-conscious about having broad shoulders or maybe still working on that tummy. Don't fret, there are a lot of options to choose from to camouflage the areas you feel funny about and compliment the parts you love. Fab's here to help you find that perfect swimsuit.

To learn what kind of suits are best for broad shoulders, wide hips, the tummy conscious, and more,


  • Broad Shoulders: While adding a pop of color, bright, wide banded bottoms will also balance and detract attention to shoulders. Avoid creating a v-neck silhouette by opting for a square neck top.
  • Athletic Shape: Show off a boyish figure in a halter top with feminine detailing. Prints, ruffles and side ties will add some girly curves and avoid wearing plain and solid suits.
  • Tummy Conscious: Tankinis and retro swimsuits can work wonders for the tummy conscious. Both styles conceal the tummy area and are fashionably cute. Stay away from solid colors and tiny bikinis.
  • Wide Hips: Darker bottoms paired with lighter bikini tops will detract attention from the lower half of the body. Make sure to buy a close fitting bottom to avoid adding unwanted volume to the hip area.

You guys forgot the monokini. It works wonders for the tummy conscious or boyish-figured because it defines your waist and makes your shape more like the hourglass :)

j2e -- the bandeaus with halter attachments are def square neck, and there are lots of retro bikini tops too that have the same squareish neck. I'm all about the square neck because it actually kind of helps accentuate the waistline too!
