So Which is The Best Swimsuit for Pear Shape?

Best Swimsuit for Pear Shape

Pear shape means you are bigger on the bottom than on the top meaning your shoulders are narrower than your hips. As we have discussed before – it is all about making your body visually symmetrical.

Consequently, the best swimsuit for pear shape is the one balancing out the difference by making your shoulders look wider or hips and thighs narrower. Moreover, you are probably looking for a bathing suit ensuring a certain level of coverage for your rear end.

However, the most important is that you feel good in your bathing suit and accentuate what you believe your assets are. Many women find fuller bottom sexy and instead of hiding it prefer highlighting. So it is totally up to you what to conceal and what to emphasize so we will offer choices for every wish.

Padded Swimsuits – Enhancing Your Bust

Padded swimsuits will do the trick in making your upper part bigger and as we discussed this could be one of our aims. Push up tankini could be a great choice for those looking not only for bust enhancement but also for increased coverage.

If you are after increased support, underwire bathing suits are the ones ensuring the greatest level of breast support.

String bikinis flatter pear shape and are a good choice unless you are looking for the support. Some of these offer padding, some – don’t, but some come with removable padding.

Sexy One Piece Swimsuits – Plunging Necklines and Cut-Outs

If you are looking for a one piece swimsuit, you should look for a bathing suit drawing attention upwards instead of downwards.

Plunging necklines and cut-outs gather the attention so one piece swimsuit featuring either one or both of these features is a great choice for pear shaped women.

We have selected stunning one piece swimsuits to accentuate your curves.

Tummy Control Bathing Suits – Taking Care of Your Stomach

Midsection is a problem area for many women. But also this problem has a solution. You could try tummy control bathing suits or swimsuits that hide your stomach.

While tummy control bathing suits feature tummy control panels for functional action, swimsuits that hide your stomach act rather visually than functionally.

Bathing Suit with Skirt – Emphasizing Your Booty

Even though many experts tell us to balance out our bodies and to make the bottom part appear smaller, curvy booty is a sexy booty and many women wish to emphasize it instead of concealing.

An effective way to emphasize your bottom part is by choosing a bathing suit with skirt – the extra material calls attention to the area by highlighting your curves.

You can reach the same effect by choosing belted swimsuit, shortini, thick-banded bottom or any other bathing suit with extra material at the bottom.

If in its turn, you wish to conceal your hips and thighs, the above things are the ones to avoid.

Useful Tips to Keep in Mind When Choosing Swimsuit for Pear Shape

Owing to the differences between your upper and lower part fo the body, a good idea for pear shaped women is to go for a two piece bathing suit.

    I always hated wearing, less trying on swimsuits. Obviously I am subconscious about my body shape. You know flat on top and an extra load on the bottom. Then I came across your post here about pear shape body styles as I was truly drawn in to everything you had to say.
    I like the styles with the small skirts, to me that makes everything more classy. I definitely will book mark this and come back in a few weeks.
    Thanks, Angela

    You have some nice options here but if I had to choose only one, I would choose the one with the skirt. For me it can serve a two fold function. 1. It emphasizes the bottom if that is what you want and 2. It is a good cover up if you do not want to feel too exposed. If feels like you are wearing a little mini dress instead of an exposing swim wear. Of course, that perception might be all in the mind but hey….the mind is in charge 🙂

    • Hey there

      Thanks for visiting my website! You are completely right – bathing suit with skirt adds volume to the bottom part of your body and it is a great choice for women wishing to reduce the amount of skin exposed. As I always say you need to feel good to look good so it is all about flattering not only your body but also your mind.

      Cheers, Arta

    Swimsuits….I think Charlie Brown said it best, “UGH!!!”

    When I was slim and trim, I was self comnscious; now that I’m bigger and curvy, I’m still self conscious. So, apparently, confidence has nothing to do with size.

    You give some great tips on finding the best swimsuit for pear-shaped women. Walking around in front of strangers, nearly naked, really does take a lot of confidence, and wearing a swimsuit that flatters your body helps tremendously. I always gravitated towards halter tops, but I never really considered how that look can flatter just about any shape.

    You said it best in terms of the “secret” to finding the right swimsuit: the best swimsuit is one that accentuates the positive, and conceals what you want to hide.

    • Hey Veronica

      Thank you for visiting my website. I think when it comes to our bodies there is always something we are not satisfied with. So it is a neverending story. It is a matter of understanding what exactly you are not satisfied with and choosing a bathing suit that hides or controls that area of your body. Nowadays there is a wide range of different features built in swimsuits so that you can take care of nearly any imperfection.

      Cheers, Arta

    I am pleasantly surprised to see so many beautiful looking swimsuits.

    Great article you presented each swimsuit in a very nice way, with a good detailed description of every swimsuit. However I would like to know are these swimsuits good for someone who is rather large breasted?

    Thank you for such a helpful article!

    It just started to get really hot again here in Vegas and everyone is heading to the pool. Just last week I was getting out my bathing suit and thinking it had been a while since I’d checked out your website. You’re still obviously rocking some great ideas. I adore the black with fringe and the skirt with bandeau at the top. There is no reason any girl should feel like hiding this Summer with cute options like this.

    Hi! I am so glad I found this website. I hate bathing suits they make me feel so self conscious. I always wind up wearing a t-shirt and shorts over them. But I am seeing that one with the skirt and thinking I might try that one this year. Thanks for opening my eyes to the ways to hide the flaws. I think the skirt will give me a little confidence with it not showing so much. Do you also sell cover up’s to go over the bathing suit?

    • Arta

    Hi Arta,

    There is definitely some substance to your site and my wife would love to get her hands on some of these.

    It definitely is a confidence thing, and trust me men and women experience this when it comes to swimsuit comfort.

    Providing ladies with these options can only be a good thing, the darker colours tend to help as well.



  12. Norman

    I believe that my wife will find what you have to offer to be helpful as she is one that is more reserve if I can use that word when it comes to swimwear. It is amazing how far swimwear has come and the many styles that are offered to appeal to the different tastes. I am sure that the many females out there will find your post to be so helpful especially how this is summertime as we head off to the beach.

    I found it enlightening to see how a swimsuit can alter how a woman with a pear shaped body looks. I was amazed how they are engineered to modify the contour of the body in specific areas to make the lady look and feel beautiful. 

    When a lady feels beautiful it;s amazing hos she comes across of being confident as well as looking beautiful too. 

    Thanks for a very helpful post on how to choose the best swimsuit for a pear shaped body.
