Swimwear for the apple body shape

Finding the best swimwear styles for the apple body shape can sometimes be a struggle, I mean, you’re only a piece of lycra away from showing off your whole tummy to the world! Don’t fret though because InSyze has got some great tips that will have you slaying at the poolside…or beach.

Take a look back at the full style guide for the apple body shape here and if you aren’t sure what your body shape is, take a look here.


The tummy is often one of the pet-hates of the apple body shape so a lot of women skip past the bikini section when they are looking for swimwear but with our top tips, you don’t have to.


Bandeau tops and high waisted bottoms work perfectly for your body shape. Our top pick is the plus kara geo print bikini from Boohoo with its juicy watermelon print.


Tankinis are must-haves when it comes to swimwear styles for the apple body shape. They will skim over your tummy and are a great stepping stone between a one-piece and a bikini. This flower leaf tankini set from Dresslily has central pleating to the empire line, a great look for apples.

One- Pieces

Create an illusion of having a smaller waist with gathered detail to the middle or side of your costume. check out this miraclesuit style from SwimwearGalore.

Choose swimwear with a plunge or halter neck to focus the eyeline down the body. This will elongate it and make you look taller. This is also a great tip for petite women of any body shape. This one piece plunge from Becca ETC available at Everything But Water has got eye-catching lace panels to the chest and sides.

Have you ever thought about a swim dress? These will automatically draw attention to the skirt and away from the midsection. We love this black polka dot swim dress from Evans.


From wide-brimmed sun hats to oversized sunglasses, apples can have it all. The key to your swimwear accessories is to draw attention away from your midsection. If you want to wear a sarong, why not tie it around your front (like a dress) instead of around the waist (like a skirt.)

As with all of our body shape guides, these are purely suggestions.  We know that you will look fabulous whatever you decide to wear at the pool or beach.
