Best Swimwear for Pear Shape

January 23, 2012

Nicolita has reached a multi-cultural consumer who wants a flattering style that is conservative and sexy; the perfect swimwear for a pear shape figure! The Cuban-Style Bottoms have a No-Pinch Fit elastic waist, coverage on the hips, and a heart-shaped backside.

What is a Pear Shaped Figure?

Women with a larger hip measurement compared to their bust measurement, would be considered a pear shaped figure. What is the hottest swimwear to enhance this shape with sabor? Here are some tips to use the next time you hit the water!

Tip 1:

While you should stay away from boy shorts, which will make you look squat, take on more of an asymmetrical skirt bottom that can help elongate your body. Nicolita can share with you her Salsa Shirred Rollover Bottom that comes in eight different colors. This roll over bottom has an adjustable roll over band to either cover more or less of your tummy and hips.

Tip 2:

Club Nautico is also a favorite when it comes to pear shaped figures. It covers the tummy and elongates the legs with its high waist bottoms. The bandeau features removable bra cups for a better shape and an adjustable back tie. The bottoms are also adjustable to cover more or less of your tummy and hips.

Tip 3:

A very sensual way to balance out your shape would be to add ruffles near the bust. There are many styles that Nicolita carries for you choose from: one piece, one shoulder, tube tops, and so much more!

The trick is to always elongate the body! Woman with wider hips appear shorter than what they really are. So here are some last reminders:

1. To balance out the top, use Rumba Ruffles!
2. Asymmetrical skirt bottoms can help elongate the legs
3. High waisted bottoms can help overall by covering the tummy and create longer legs.

By following all these steps, you’ll be ready to hit the beaches of Varadero!

Fit Guide and Suggested Styles

Do you hate when your bikini bottoms dig into your hips? Have no fear, Nicolita NO PINCH FIT Cuban Style Bottoms are here!!

Hola! I'm Nicolita owner & designer Nicole Di Rocco. In this video I'll show you why and how we created our signature Nicolita Bottom fit.

Nicolita has one-of-kind swimwear styles that are carefully designed to flatter your figure. Say goodbye to those ill-fitting bikini bottoms and say hello to comfort and fit!

Below are a few of our most popular styles that were designed with YOUR hips in mind.

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.

To elongate the torso, check out:

Rumba Ruffles One Shoulder Top

Neon Bloom Deep V One Piece


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!
