Best Swimwear for an Apple Figure

February 06, 2012

What is an Apple Shaped figure?

You have a broader shoulders compared to your narrow hips. Your legs and thighs tend to be more narrow while your abdomen and chest are wider. Apple shaped women look for swim suits that will reduce the waistline and create a slimming effect.

Here are some tips that can help you choose the right swim suit for next spring break!

Tip 1

By wearing a slight V-Cut top, it will draw attention towards the bust or face. Also, bikini bottoms with accents can help make the hips look enlarged! Nicolita’s Senorita Solids provides excellent support and coverage that still keeps its sexiness with a low-cut neckline. The Hipster Bottom sits low on the hips and feature Nicolita’s No-Pinch Fit elastic with shirring in the middle that creates a hear-shaped backside.

Tip 2

Your top should have thick straps, which in turn will make your top half look smaller. You can do this by pairing Senorita Solids Adjusted Halter Top which also includes wider straps for more support. The Senorita Solids Boy Shorts have a heart-shaped backside to give a cheekier look.

Tip 3

By wearing a one piece with a v-neck, it will add shape to your midsection, giving it that narrowing effect. You can try the Nicolita Knotty by Night Cross One Piece. This cutie features a similar thick straps that cross at the back instead of the neck, which creates a more comfortable fit and is a great compliment to the knotted heart-shaped backside.

 

By following these tips, Nicolita can help you balance and accentuate the body. By portraying her Cuban roots, the designs behind Nicolita are full of flavor and always keeping the woman’s body in mind.  In no time you will be ready to sip your mojito pool side!

Welcome to the Nicolita Fitting Room!

I want to help you find the Perfect Fit Nicolita Style. Below I have created a Nicolita Swimwear Fit guide to match your curves with our swimwear options and styles. If you still have questions of which bikini or one piece style would look best with your body shape just Call 866-NICOLITA (866-642-6548)  Email hola@mynicolita, or Skype me @mynicolita.     

Over the last 13 years since I started Nicolita in 2003, I have worked with a lot of Nicolita clients on selecting the perfect swimsuit for them. I'm the first to admit that wearing a bikini or one piece swimsuit can be challenging for the majority of us. Even if you have a rockin' body, there are certain styles that work better on certain body shapes.

But I am a strong believer that there is the perfect swimsuit out there for you. And we have gone ahead and picked out some styles that are flattering for you!

Larger cup sizes (D cup and up)

Women with larger cup sizes are primarily looking for 2 things when trying on swimwear: coverage and support. While going up a size in the top can provide more coverage, some styles just won’t provide the coverage and support you may be looking for. Look for styles with side boning and molded cups to give you the support and coverage you desire, without the pinching of an underwire!

For support and coverage, check out:
Maria Knotty Wrap Twist Top

Molded Push Up Bikini Top

 

Smaller Bust

Have a smaller bust and want to create the illusion of a bigger chest? Styles with details like ruffles and molded cups will add volume and create cleavage!

For adding volume to a smaller chest, check out:

Haute Dot Bow Tie Bikini Tube Top

Rumba Ruffles Triangle Halter

 

Broad Shoulders

If you’re looking to tone down the appearance of broad shoulders, look for one-shoulder and detailed tops which will draw attention away from wide set shoulders. Deep V necklines will keep the attention focused on your chest and the low cut back will make your shoulders appear more narrow.

Not So Curvy

Looking to add more curve to that backside? Look for bottoms with backside details like ruffles, shirring, or our signature knotty bottom. These details add more curve to your bottom and create a more shapely bum.

Tummy Control

We all have those days we would rather cover our midsection. To conceal your midriff while flattering your other assets, look for styles that have shirring throughout the midsection to camouflage any insecurities.

More Coverage Overall

Trying to keep your skin out of the sun, or just desire to be more covered? Look for styles that provide more coverage without sacrificing style, like high-neck tops, high-waist bottoms, and one pieces!
