Apple shaped women have a particularly hard time finding swimwear. It seems as though, these days, all swimsuits are designed to expose and flaunt your stomach. I would have loved to have lived in the 50’s when swimsuits were made to accentuate curves in a modest way. Of course, I find absolutely nothing wrong with an apple wearing a more revealing swimsuit or a two-piece. You just have to find the right suit.
Here are some tips:
- Find a one-piece with a pattern or dark solid color on the stomach to camouflage any unflattering areas.
- Use bolder patterns or brighter colors to draw attention to your bust or hips instead of your tummy.
- Find a suit that is going to show off the smallest part of your torso(directly under your bust). It will give your torso a longer/leaner look.
- If you’re going for a two-piece find bottoms that are going to accentuate your hipbone*. This will draw attention away from the tummy while making your hips appear curvier.
*I like the two bottoms that I found here. The cut-out bottom on the left will make straight hips look curvier while hiding a lower pooch. The second bottom has lines that pull your eyes down and out – away from the tummy. I paired the second bottom with a bright patterned top that is also going to help to pull the eye away from any tummy insecurities you might have.
