Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and that’s part of what makes each of us special.

Some of us are have broader shoulders, some of us have narrower hips, some of us are curvier. What’s important to know is that there isn’t a “typical” body type. We’re all a little different!

Still, most of us can categorise our bodies loosely into these types - rectangle, inverted triangle, hourglass, oval, triangle and diamond.

 

Rectangle

Your shoulders are about the same width and your waist measurements are about the same as your bust of hip. Also known as the banana shape.

Outfits for Rectangle Shapes

Add volume to your bust and hips with bright prints or ruching details!

Try pieces with ruched details or colour-blocking at the waist area to create an illusion of curves.

Inverted Triangle

Also known as apple-shape, your shoulders and bust are larger than your relatively narrow hips.

Outfits for Inverted Triangle Shapes

Try pairing solid colours on your top half and prints or bright colours on your bottom half to draw eyes down to your hips and waist.

Highlight your lean legs with high cut bottoms, and hide muffin tops with flattering blouson tankinis.

Hourglass

Your hips and bust are about the same width and you have a well-defined waist that's narrower than both.

Outfits for Hourglass Shapes

Don't be afraid to your curves in two piece outfits!

Try on bra-style bikinis with underwires for support, or fitted tankinis if you're more conservative.

Oval

Your bust is larger than the rest of your body, and you have narrow hips and a fuller midsection.

Outfits for Oval Shapes

Draw attention from your midsection with side ruching details or cut outs.

Flare tops with vertically-placed prints are especially flattering!

Triangle

Also known as pear-shape, your shoulders and bust are narrower than your hips with a fairly defined waist.

Outfits for Triangle Shapes

Give an illusion of wider shoulders to balance out your hips with halter details, and a fuller bust with ruching at your bust area or a sweetheart neckline.

Try pairing prints on your top half and solid colours on your bottom half for a flattering look if you're wearing a two-piece outfit.

We might have suggested a couple of styles for you to try, but in the end, it's all up to you to decide!

We love that you're self-confident!
