How To Choose The Right Bikini Bottom For Your Body Shape

Now that you know how to select the right bikini top, here’s how to select your bottoms. There are two things to consider when it comes to selecting the right bikini bottoms. The first is your body shape and the second is how much bum you are comfortable baring. Here’s what to consider.

Hourglass Figure

If you are a curvy beauty that has a classic hourglass figure, whether thin or plus-sized—anything goes. Choose from boy shorts, thongs, hipsters, string bikinis, high waist, or cheeky styles. And when it comes to patterns or prints, the choice is yours.

Boy Shaped Beauties

If your body is fairly straight with minimal curves you want to select a bikini bottom that creates the illusion of curves. A higher cut leg with or without side string ties will work. For fuller coverage, opt for a high waist bottom with curve-creating ruching. Choose patterns and prints over solid colors.

Pear Shaped Ladies

If you are smaller on top and curvier on the bottom choose a solid colored bottom in any style you feel comfortable in. Just avoid embellishments like ruching, ruffles, or bulky hardware as it can make you look curvier. Keep things fun with hip cutouts.

Tummy Troubles

We encourage all ladies to embrace their bodies and rock a bikini even if they have stretch marks or a tummy that is less than flat. That being said, if you want to wear a two-piece and minimize your tummy opt for a high waisted bikini bottom. You can find high waist with full coverage or high waist with high cut legs. Ruching, no ruching, ruffles, belted, solid or pattern—it’s up to you.

When it comes to your bikini never feel like you have to be super matchy matchy. Mix and match patterns and prints with solid colors to create a signature look. Browse BAYTHE collections now to find your figure-flattering options!
