The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Bikini for You


Choosing the best bikini begins with understanding the shape of your body and the swimwear style that suits it best. You may also consider measuring your bust; however, you should not squeeze the tape too much; take measurements that will enable you to breathe deeply.

Also, measure your waist size and do not squeeze your stomach. Also, take measurements of the hips, the widest point below the waist.

Rhyle Swim offers a variety of bikinis from which you can choose. This article provides an ultimate guide to choosing the suitable cheeky swimsuits for you.

Consider The Shape of Your Body

When it comes to choosing cheeky swimsuits, everyone’s body shape is unique. Therefore, you need to choose a bikini that perfectly fits you. Various body shapes will fit your descriptions, including the pear body shape, apple body shape, hourglass body shape, rectangle body shape, and athletic body shape. It is also important to note that body shape is not the same as body weight; a body shape can measure any weight.

Picking A Bikini for Apple Body Shape

The apple body shape refers to a woman’s body shape, which tends to be heavy at the top; that is, she has a broader bust and shoulders proportional to the hips. Therefore, it is advisable to emphasize the hips curves with side ties and patterned bottoms for this body shape. Also, a high-waisted bottom paired with a tankini will flatter and tone your figure. Halter tops and plunging necklines will make your thick torsos and broad shoulders look slim.

Picking A Bikini for A Pear Body Shape

A pear body shape is also referred to as a triangle body shape and refers to a woman’s body shape that is generally wide at the hips but with narrow shoulders and a smaller bust. Therefore, for a pear body shape, go for cheeky swimsuits with bold top patterns, padded cups, and elaborate styles, and to emphasize your bust's natural curve, have plunging necklines. Also, for your bottom, emphasize figure-flattering darker shades with solid colors. The high-cut bottoms will also make your thighs look longer and slimmer.

Choosing A Bikini for A Rectangle Body Shape

A rectangle body shape refers to a straight silhouette with slight measurement differences in the bust, hips, and waist. All bikini types add a curve to the hips and bust so that the rectangular body shape looks perfect for all bikini types. Therefore side tie bottoms and skimpy triangle-style tops are ideal for this body shape.

One-piece cheeky swimsuits with cut-out sides may create an hourglass body shape for the straightest rectangle body shapes. Ruffles, colors with bold patterns, ruching, and frills can add extra volume to your busts and hips.

Picking A Bikini for Hourglass Body Shape

An hourglass body shape refers to unevenly proportioned hips and busts but with a well-defined waist. An hourglass body shape fits most of the cheeky swimsuits' flattering styles; it all depends on how much you want to emphasize the curves. So high-waisted bottoms will make your waist look slim and cover your tummy.

Choosing A Bikini for Athletic Body Shape

Athletic body shape is also known as an inverted triangle and refers to a body shape that combines straight hips, waist, and bust with broad shoulders. For this body shape, choose cheeky swimsuits that combine fancy bottoms with simple plain tops to balance out the hips and shoulders. Padded cups and plunging necklines will enhance smaller breasts and minimize broad shoulders.


When choosing cheeky swimsuits, you should consider various body shapes to make the best choice. These include the apple body shape, pear body shape, rectangle body shape, hourglass body shape, and athletic body shape.
