Whether your shape is hourglass or straight, apple or pear, this style can work to accencuate your best features if styled correctly. If you are top heavy, or pear shaped, you should pair your bottoms with a halter top or another full coverage option that will supply balance. Straight or hourglass shapes can play a little more with top style. Triangular bikini tops with ruffles or embellishments will help to create the illusion of more curves up top.

As for prints or colors of choice, the bolder the better! Fun fabrics, such as animal and floral prints, and tribal patterns are the star of the season, and when it comes to color, choose the one that best compliments your skin tone. Softer hues with lace embellishements are also making a splash, and are reminiscent of lingerie inspired swimwear. Below are a few of our favorite choices.
