2. The Opulent Oval
If you are oval-shaped, your bust will be your largest measurement. Look at swimsuits with more support such as suits that have built in underwire and removable padding. You also want to look for a simple style on top so you don’t draw attention to your chest.
Style Tip: For additional support look for thicker straps or adjustable bra style bikinis to ensure you have the support you need. Suits with underwire are often sized in the same ways as bras so look for the same support as you would when shopping for a bra.
Remember that you can often mix and match to find your ideal combination and therefore mix and match to create a variety of swimsuits that makes you look skinny, just like these stunning options:
