"Shopping for swimsuits can sometimes be one of the hardest things for women to shop for," Jess explains. "Most people struggle with different brands' sizing no matter what size they are, so here are some quick tips and go-to brands to make the process much easier."
For flattering hips and curves:
Go for a simple shape and colour. Darker, solid colours are always work best in high cut briefs as they create the illusion of longer and leaner legs.
Brand to try: Monday Swimwear
For those with a smaller bust:
Opt for underwire, padding and textured fabrics. Try a bikini top with underwire to give your burst more shape. Also wearing something with added padding or a textured fabric and any extra detailing such as ruffles, embellishments and prints can also help to enhance the look of your breast.

For added support:
Bra style cups both in a bikini or one pieces are best with thicker straps to add extra support and comfort.
For straight up and down body types:
Look for a high waisted swimsuit with some waist detailing like a belt or cut-outs which will cinch in your waist giving some extra shape.
For a smooth tummy:
A classic swimsuit to wear when trying to flatter your stomach is a panelled one piece or one with some ruching. This will draw the attention away from your tummy while also adding extra support.

For a flattering bum:
Instead of covering your bum and hips (which can actually make them look bigger) go for a high cut brief to slim down your behind.
