How To Pick the Right Bikini Top Style

Picking out the proper bikini that's fitted for your particular body shape is very important.  Here's how to pick out the perfect bikini top.

If you have a small or flat chest, you're in luck.  Gone are the days of only big breasted women being regarded as curvy or sexy.  Today, women with small breasts or none at all are just as alluring.  If you have a small chest, then pick out a top for your chest size.  Don't try to wear a top that a bigger breasted woman would wear.  It will look very tacky and show that you're trying too hard.  Try a ruched style or anything with ruffles or layers.  Those types will make your bust look fuller if that's what you are looking for.  Look for a top with adjustable straps so you can have some flexibility.  Yet, if you're just looking to cover up your chest and not give the appearance of increasing it, then going with a triangle top style is the "in thing" that will show off your small bust.
Busty girls need to pay attention too.  Just because you are well endowed doesn't mean it's all gravy.  Many top heavy girls make the mistake of choosing swimming tops that are too small so there is a bunch of extra stuff hanging out on the sides, making them look quite desperate. The first thing is to be honest about your breast size. Trying to fit a DD into a B is not sexy.  It looks quite "cheap" and takes away the "class" when wearing a nice bikini.  Try to avoid strapless tops because they can make your bust look unleveled and saggy.  Halter tops are good for busty girls, allowing for more bust support for if you're playing volleyball and don't want anything falling out.  Make sure you use a top with an underwire so your breasts won't appear to sag.

Do you have wide or broad shoulders?  Look for tops with thicker straps which are better for wide shoulders, making them look less broad.  Halter tops give the illusion of small shoulders, plus they also gather the bust together, creating some great cleavage, if you need it.
Pay attention to colors, patterns and textures.  If red isn't your color, then you will not look good in a red bikini.  For small or flat chested women, stay away from bright colors on top because it will bring too much attention.  If you're busty and want attention in that area, then a bright color may fit you well.  For top heavy girls who don't want to be the center of attraction, wearing a soft pastel or plain color will keep you blended in well with the crowd.  Any kind of wild patterns or unusual textures will draw attention, so remember that when picking out your swimwear top. Also remember when picking out your bikini top that having a proper fitting and color coordinated bikini bottom will either compliment or clash.  Wearing a light top and dark bottom will, of course, draw more attention to the top because of the brightness.  If you don't want that extra attention on top then wear the opposite.
