A little help to choose your swimwear

Tall and athletic
Anything will do. Just choose a nice colour to match skin tone.

Short and athletic
Usually the brief style will do the trick. Go for a high leg cut to make legs look longer and a low waist band to show off those abs. Avoid long and extra long shorts.

Tall and thin
Baggy shorts are best. Make sure you don’t overdo the bagginess.

Tall and big
Long shorts in one solid colour will look best. If you want patterned swimwear, choose small patterns and keep the colours down.

Big Tummy
Again wear a solid colour - patterns will just accentuate. And remember you can easily cover up your flabby bits by wearing a tee shirt or shirt.
