Best Swimsuits for Pear-Shaped Bodies

People may question the existence of mermaids, but there’s no questioning that VENUS has the best swimsuits for pear-shaped bodies. While it’s all about what makes you feel amazing, the main thing pear shapes should keep in mind when it comes to swimsuits: accentuate your well-defined waist and add volume on top to balance your lower half.

Swimsuits Features to Look For

By choosing suits with strategic cuts, prints and details, you can create the illusion of a balanced silhouette. Look for these features in a figure-flattering suit:
  • Tops with eye-catching prints, ruffles and frills draw the eye up
  • Deep V-necklines emphasize your narrow midsection
  • Belted styles highlight your waist
  • Vertical stripes elongate the body
  • Diagonal stripes visually cinch the waist
  • High-leg bottoms give you legs for days

What Swimsuit Features to Avoid for Pear Shape

There are dos and then there are absolutely nots. To avoid looking bottom heavy, steer clear of ruffled or skirted bottoms, boy shorts and string bikinis. Instead, opt for styles that balance your figure and draw attention to your top half. What to avoid:

  • Skirted bottoms that add volume on bottom
  • Ruffled bottoms that draw the eye to the hips
  • Swim shorts and low-rise bottoms that widen the look of the hips
  • String bikinis that don’t provide enough coverage
  • Swimsuits for Pear Bodies
