Swimsuit Do’s and Don’ts: Petites

For each body type, there are certain things that you should and should not do. I’m going to make these a series of blogs. I might post most some of them on the same days, but they will be spread out over a couple of days.

Buy this suit here.

When you have a petite body, you want to give the illusion that you have longer legs and a longer torso.

To make your legs look longer, get a bathing suit that has higher cut bottoms. In order to make your body seem elongated, wear a printed top with solid bottoms. Try different style bathing suits to mix things up. For example, try a string top with normal cut bottoms. This combination will draw the eye up.

Don’t wear just plain bathing suits! Play around with prints, colors, and patterns. Don’t wear skirt or boy-cut bottoms. They will make your legs appear shorter. Don’t wear a top with too much support because it will make your chest appear smaller.
