How to Choose the Best Bathing Suit for Your Body
Consider an underwire or halter top. The halter gives you an added benefit from up top, since you can gain more support just by tightening the knot at the nape of your neck. The underwire gives you that boost you're looking for, but from below, with more support at the bottom and sides of your bust. Note: If you're going with a one piece, still look for underwire or halters - no flimsy nylon here.

About the Suit: This top is a refreshing take on the much-repeated tropic print. Instead of a palm graphic in bright blues and greens, this is in classic (and classy) black and white. Plus, a ring detail at the bottom center helps accentuate the bust line. Choose from the hipster bottom, $63, or the skirted hipster bottom, $82.
If You Want To: Flatter a Full, Feminine Figure
A tankini works best for a full figure. Frills, lace and flowing diagonal panels dominate. This gives your beachwear a fun, feminine look while providing perfect coverage. If you want more of a fitted look, consider a halter tankini with foam cups in the bra and tummy control panels. Otherwise, strapless tankinis are all the rage. Consider pairing with a high-waisted bottom in a solid color.
