Shape guide

Feel confident and relaxed on holiday with our detailed guide to the perfect swimwear for you. No matter your shape or style, we've got all the options - and your figure - perfectly covered.

The hourglass shape consists of a small, well-defined waist with equally proportioned shoulders, bust and hips.

Celeb comparison: Béyonce Knowles

Choose matching bikini sets to keep your top and bottom half perfectly in proportion and opt for underwired styles to beautifully enhance your shape as well as offering support. Low halter styles will show off your cleavage while ruching detail around the middle with emphasise a small waist. A jersey wrap dress makes the perfect cover up as it will accentuate your waist and bust, while kaftans will also work well when drawn in at the waist.

The pear shape carries more weight around the lower half of the body on the hips, thighs and bum. With narrow shoulders and a smaller bust, the pear should search for swimwear that balances out her proportions.

Celeb comparison: Jennifer Lopez

Look for a bikini that draws attention away from the lower half and up towards the chest such as an uplifting style to boost the bust paired with low cut briefs. Swimsuits made from control fabrics, with drapes and ruching details, will help to achieve a slimmer look by adding support and concealing problem areas. For the perfect finishing touch, tie a sarong around the areas that make you feel self-conscious, diverting attention to your upper half in the process.

Curvy in the hips and thighs, yet small on top, the apple shape should invest in swimwear that balances proportions and offers fabulous coverage across the bottom half.

Celeb comparison: Mariah Carey

Opt for a bikini with detail on the bust to focus attention away from other areas. If you feel most comfortable with more coverage, a tankini is a good choice for concealing the stomach while fold over bikini bottoms work well for hiding the hips and stomach. Look for vertical stripe designs to elongate the body and swimsuits with empire lines to enhance the narrowest point of your waist. A wrap over jersey dress is the perfect cover up for apples as it will enhance the neckline and focus attention to the waist.

The athletic shape is quite rectangular, straight without curves. Swimwear for this body shape should always seek to add curves.

Celeb comparison: Elle Macpherson

Opt for padded tops, preferably patterned, and bikini bottoms with side details to create the illusion of curves - the more detail, the bigger the illusion. Styles with frills on the hips will act to enhance your waist.

The triangle shape is wider on the shoulders and torso, narrower on the hips. The triangle should select swimwear that highlights the bottom half of their figure.

Celeb comparison: Katy Perry

Look for swimsuits with a sweetheart neckline to take the focus away from your shoulders and with hidden support such as underwiring. Enhance your bottom half with bikini bottoms featuring side details such as ties and bows to help add curves. Trousers are a great cover up for triangles as they enhance the lower part of the body, around the hip area, taking the emphasis away from your chest.
