There are many women who have great looking bodies and who are planning to purchase a sexy bikini. The problem is that sometimes they buy bikinis that are ill-fitting, less than flattering and also not very supportive. If this seems to be something that has happened to you, then take some time to read this article and get some tips on selecting the right swimsuit styles for your fuller figure body.

Among the many styles of swimwear on the market, there are full figure friendly bikinis. These sexy bikinis are sometimes thrown into the mix with the other bikinis and often get overlooked. Use the tips below to select a bikini that will look and feel great when you wear it.

Focus on Support and Comfort

One of the first things you should focus on is supporting your chest. Not only is this better for your back and other parts of your body but it also makes you look better. When you think about it, when you look in the mirror after trying on a bikini that looks less than fabulous - one of the first things that you will probably notice is your breasts are sagging and therefore making your stomach look shorter. When this happens, everything else is proportionally thrown out of sync.

So what does this all mean? It means that you should steer clear of string bikinis if you are larger sized. Not only will you run the risk of spilling out of the string bikini on all sides, you will also have an unflattering frumpy look. On top of that, the string bikini straps will cut into your skin. This is especially horrible when the strap ties around the neck - as most string bikinis do.

You should however, choose a bikini that has supportive underwire cups. You will be amazed at how wonderfully perky your bust line will appear after slipping into a full figured, underwire bikini! One of the biggest concerns women have when selecting an underwire bikini is that it will look like they are wearing a bra. This has never been further from the truth and a good quality underwire bikini will never have the appearance of a bra. In fact, many women prefer underwire bikini tops to ensure they get the support they need while keeping everything in place - whether they need it or not.

If you really do not want an underwire bikinis then you might consider a thick banded halter top bikini style. This will still give you the support where you need it while getting rid of the underwire. This is a great option for women who cannot wear underwired garments or simply feel too uncomfortable in them. Halter style bikini tops will do wonders for your bustline as well.

Full Figured Bikini Bottoms

So we talked about what we should look for in the top but what about the bottom? Full figure bikinis can address a lot of different areas. If you are full figured in the bottom portion of your body, you have a few different styles that will minimize as well as accentuate your curves.

One of the most popular full figured bottoms on the market are those with a thick, supportive band. This is great for women who might have a little bit of a belly or even for the many women who have the 'lower pouch' most often after the event of having a child. The thicker band helps keep everything tight creating a sleek and trim look. There are also bikinis that are band bikinis which have an extra layer of material sewn so you are able to extend it upward all the way or somewhere in between.

Like many clothing tips, if you are trying to make the lower half of your body appear to be slimmer, then you might want to try pairing up a dark, solid colored bottom with a print style top. This will help draw the attention upwards instead of lower.

In order to get the perfect look, you need to know what type of body you have. A full figured bikini can be just as sexy as a string bikini or any other bikini style. The best part about it is that you will not only look fabulous but you will be comfortable as well and that is a good thing.
