Shopping for a swimsuit could be quite a challenge. Faced with unrealistic societal standards, your body, no matter how fit or healthy you are, will never measure up.
We come in all shapes and sizes -- and it’s important to love our figure, respect it, and appreciate it. It is important then to find the right cut for your figure. Remember too that a great-fitting swimsuit is better than a trendy one.
ARE YOU CURVY?
Show off your luscious curves! Try asymmetrical one-piece suits or cut-out suits for a figure-hugging look.
ARE YOU TOP HEAVY?
Inverted triangles tend to have a broader upper body. Create balance, go for hi-cut suits or string bikini bottoms to enhance the hips. Halter bikini tops are also very flattering, as well as ruffles and frills. Try it out!
ARE YOU ATHLETIC?Athletic types tend to have more rectangle-shaped figures. It’s all about creating more shape here. Go for string bikinis and feminine details like ruffles and ribbons. Those are your best bets to create some curves.
ARE YOU FULL-FIGURED?
Whether you want to show off your gorgeous curves or downplay some body parts, we have the perfect swimsuits for you. One-piece suits with peplums, shirring, or ruching on the tummy area are lifesavers. If you are more into bikinis, try a high-waisted bottom matched with a thick-strap top.
ARE YOU PEAR-SHAPED?For hip curvy girls, balance your proportion by focusing on the upper area or adding coverage at the bottom. Try a bottom with a skirt, padded bikini tops, and strapless tops.
ARE YOU BUSTY?
You definitely want to show off your bod, but still want to have that support as well. Bras with underwires are your best bet to look amazing while not worrying about a wardrobe malfunction.
ARE YOU SMALL-BREASTED?
If you are part of the itty bitty committee, don’t fret! Wearing triangle bikini tops and padded push-up bras will create the illusion you may be looking for. You can even rock a low-cut top without feeling overexposed. Add in a little underboob for that extra spice!
Whether you want to show off or cover up, EIKA will always have your back. See our range of swimsuits and pick your favorite one, or three.
