The one-piece costume gives us most scope for enhancing our appearance.
Let’s begin with the classic swimsuit.
Simple yet elegant, the swimsuit looks best on slender physiques that are not particularly curvy.
Those who prefer this type of costume can play around with the cut of the leg:
- high cut to lengthen your legs;
- lower cut to lengthen your torso.
Knowing your body will help you to choose the most flattering model for your physique.
Another aspect we can play around with is the neckline, which should be:
- more pronounced for smaller busts;
- less pronounced for fuller busts.
Don’t worry if your figure doesn’t fall within the androgynous category, thanks to the wide variety of women’s one-piece costumes on the market you’ll be able to find the perfect model for you.
One-shoulder one-piece costumes tend to narrow the shoulders and look good on those with wide shoulders and narrow hips, balancing the proportions. Once again, it is possible to choose between high-leg and low-leg versions.
They can be used as tops under a loose midi skirt.
The one-piece costume with belt flatters all really feminine hourglass figures.
It is a good choice for women with fuller hips and bust, provided that you have a slim waist. Again, the neckline and cut of the leg are the variables to focus on in order to enhance your figure.
One-piece costumes with ruffles are clever because they tend to minimise prominent tummies. Ruffles usually start under the bust and go down to the leg opening. These are the ideal choice of many over-50s that have put on weight as a result of the menopause.
The choice of colour and/or pattern can also help with minimising the tummy.
One-piece padded costumes are perfect for those:
- with a small bust;
- with wide hips who want to balance with the upper torso;
- who want to draw attention to the bust.
The shape of the neckline is important for each of these goals, as well as the depth.
Finally, there is the cut-out costume, a cross between a one-piece and a bikini.
This model leaves a large part of the body uncovered with ad hoc cuts for a sexy and alluring look. The choice of cut depends on your figure and the parts of your body you want to highlight and conceal. An option for self-confident women that don’t mind being observed.
Don’t forget to take care of your hair: if your hair is untidy, a beautiful costume won’t be enough on its own to bring out your beauty. Those with curly hair in particular should follow these simple rules to make sure they always look at their best.
