Fab Body Guide: Swimwear For All Figures

Though it's still Spring, Summer is fast approaching so you should already be on the prowl for some new sexy swimwear! Last week I showed you some of my current favorite suit trends: metallic bikinis, cut-out one pieces, exotic suits, pin up styles and surfing wear. Life & Style featured some celebs in their suits according to their body types - so helpful! I for one always like to buy suits that accentuate my small B cup chest - so below I have chosen a couple suits that will give my boobs a little boost. So whether or not you can float above water, buy one or two new stunning bathing suits this season but be sure it compliments your bod!

To see my swimsuit picks to accentuate a small bust,

Vix Tropical Bikini, $130. A bandeau is the way to go - not all gals can wear these, but for the smaller busted it draws attention to this area.

Delia's Dots Cinched Bandeau and Skirtini, $50. The halter will help create cleavage and the polka dots are just so sweet!

I hear ya about the small breasts. I have struggled for years to find the perfect bikini. With my small bust it was impossible to find the fit I liked. I saw this crochet bikini on a petite girl walking the beach last summer. I just loved the fit and then it dawned on me, learn to crochet. Now I collect patterns and make my own. I am able to make many variations and the colors are endless. It's a little trial and error, but I have found several that I really love. I turned a vision into a hobby I really love and can use. Now I lay out at the beach and model my creations.

HistoryGeek913, actually the average size of the American woman is 14. and if some of these celebrities would stop starving themselves they would have a bust to speak of. I think a more well thought out article would have included a section on booty coverage instead of 2 sections on how to make their breasts bigger or more pronounced.

does a string bikini with ruffles at the neck line help accentuate a small bust?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a skinny girl with a big bust that isn't of the super-revealing variety? Buying swimsuits is such a nightmare!

I always wince to see something that says "flatters **every** shape and size" when all the photos show celebrities who are certainly not every size, and are not even close the size 12 of the "average" American woman. It's a message to the rest of us who aren't celebrity skinny that our sizes are unacceptable. I don't buy it of course, but it still makes me angry to see it.

Last summer, or it might have been the summer before that one.. I was sooooo close to buying the same Shoshanna bikini Carmen's wearing. I so wish I got it looks really good on her. I didn't get it because, the model on the website was kind of flat chested so, I couldn't tell if this suit would worked for me. Now, I see it would have. :mob: I should have bought it. :cry: I bet they don't even have it in stock anymore because, it's either one or two years old. :( Sorry, for my mini rant & it's more sadness..than a rant.

What about bathing suits for women who would like to shrink their huge bum?

The bandeau terrifies me. Things like that have a tendency to slip off my small bust. Which, granted, DOES draw attention to the area, but...
