How to Choose a Swimsuit Depending on Your Body Shape

Dark-colored swimsuits with a fine print visually reduce body proportions and make you look slimmer than you actually are. So, say, if you wish you hips look narrower, buy a dark bikini.

Bright-colored swimsuits and swimwear with bright large prints visually enhance proportions.

Cool colors and hues help you look slimmer. Moreover, if you want to keep a person at a considerable distance, wear clothing in cold hues.

Warm colors work opposite. Wearing a swimsuit in warm colors you add some volume to you body, creating at the same time the impression of open and easy-going person.
