Style: Something for every body
Story by Christie Moeller
Small chest? Instant enhancement can be created with molded cups, padding, fringes, stripes and gathered fabrics. Profile Blush by Gottex underwire bandeau top, $66, and tab side hipster bottom, $38, Everything But Water in the Fashion Show Mall
Large chest? You need a top that can do some heavy lifting, a style that gives you full coverage plus a banded bottom and/or underwire so there are no wardrobe malfunctions at the beach. Look for adjustable straps, halter tops or tops with thicker straps to provide more bust support. Tommy Bahama deck piping underwire bikini top, $80, and Brolly Beach crossover hipster bikini bottom, $63, Tommy Bahama in Town Square, the Forum Shops at Caesars and the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood
Midriff crisis? Opt for styles that have a diversion in the middle, such a ruching, or sneaky slimming fabrics such as Miraclesuit’s Miratex fabric, which provides full-body shaping to slim and shape curves. Miraclesuit Up And Coming Caliente in electric blue, $160, zappos.com
Long torso? Look for a two-piece that pairs a longer top with a shorter bottom. REEF Desert Mirage bustier, $45, and string bikini bottom, $31, swimspot.com
Wide hips? Bring attention to your upper half and keep eyes off the problem areas with frilly tops, bold details and carefully placed geometry. Red Carter Cherokee bikini (top $99, bottom $89), Everything But Water in the Fashion Show Mall
Short torso? Keep as much of your middle exposed as possible. Try a teeny bandeau paired with a low-slung bottom. Syrup Swimwear’s “Optic City” bandeau top ($95) and bow side bottom ($90), Sun God’s pool shop in Caesars Palace
