best bust-enhancing swimsuits:


Look For:

Tops with a touch of padding, or an underwire demi-bra style that makes the most of adding to your small bustline.

You have the body to wear cute, ruffled tops that are hot right now. Triangle tops and bandeau tops are easy to wear as well.

Avoid: Tops with too much fabric or that have a poor fit.

best curve-creating swim styles:

Look For:

If you don’t have many curves, choose a swimsuit that has a belted waist to help create one. Or choose a one-piece suit with a high-on-the-thigh cut.

A one-piece swimsuit with side cut-outs instantly creates a few curves at the waist and hips.

Bikinis are also a good choice. Add some details at the hips with rings, ruffles and bows.
