Swimwear for the Strawberry Body Shape

While we enjoy the last few days of summer, it’s time you strawberry body shape  babes get ready to hit the beach for one last dip! The most important style tip for wearing swimwear is to wear it with confidence. Flattering swimwear shapes can go a long way to help you feel comfortable, happy and confident on your vacation – so here are some of our  top tips for the type of swimwear that perfectly suits your gorgeous strawberry body shape.

One of the big style tips for your body type is balancing out your silhouette. As a strawberry body shape, you’ll have broader shoulder a narrower waist – so to balance your silhouette you’ll want to focus on emphasising your hips and drawing attention down and away from your upper body.

One pieces

Asymmetric styles like one shoulder swimsuits will break up your neckline and make your shoulders look less broad.

Suits with cut-out sides are will give your athletic build curve appeal.

We love this sheer mesh panels on the Forever 21 One Piece swimsuit as modelled by Daisy Christina.

V-neck or halter neck swimwear are great for the strawberry body shape show off your collarbone and make your torso look longer. The deeper the V the better.

Bikinis

When you are picking swimwear for the strawberry body shape, colour can be key. Stick to dark colours on top and brighter bottoms.  

Wide straps are a must as they will help to even out your frame. On the flip side, bandeau styles are best avoided as they are beacons to your broad shoulders.

We love the Magi Sculpt Convertible bikini top from Ambrose Wilson which can be worn 9 different ways, including as a classic strap style or halter neck.

Accessories

We’re all about staying safe in the sun but for the strawberry body shape, a big floppy sun hat can be a total buzzkill on all your efforts to streamline your silhouette. Instead wear baseball style caps or a fedora with a narrower brim.

Sarongs and kaftans are great for covering up at the beach or pool side but think about wearing your sarong as a skirt rather than a dress and drawing the eye line down. We are loving these pool side palazzo pants from Simply Be.
