The perfectly proportioned hourglass figure was made for wearing bikinis but a bikini isn’t your thing, we’ve got some great suggestions for finding the best swimwear for the hourglass body shape. …including bikinis.
Swimwear for the hourglass body shape
For a look of modern elegance choose a classic, simple style swimsuit like this Tuscany Tummy Controlone piece from FigLeaves. We love the bright blue colour! (Available up to UK size 24)
Retro styles like these 40s, 50s and beyond, inspired swimsuits from For Luna are perfect for the hourglass figure. We simply adore this Hello Sailor costume.
If a tankini is more look, choose a form-fitting style to accentuate your curves.
Lace Panel Criss Cross tankini set from Dresslily
We just can’t get enough of high waisted bikini bottoms and they can work wonders for the hourglass figure too! Not only do they offer tummy control but also focus attention on your smaller waist.

Never mind how bootylicous your bottom may be, frills and bows on your bikini bottoms are not a good look for the hourglass figure. This because they will add volume and can make you look bottom heavy. Instead, stick to plain styles.
Cover up on the beach or at the poolside with a kimono. We love this waterfall front, tie-dye number from Yours Clothing.
Nothing says holidays quite like a big floppy straw hat and we love this circle detail hat from Next.
