Our fashion stylists put in place this amazing *The Bikini Silhouette Guide * to help you find the perfect swimsuits for your body type. Get ready for useful tips to identify your dream bikini, get confident and enjoy swimsuit shopping!

We identified 6 body types. We will make one blog post for each and every silhouette. Read our “Bikini Body Type” series to discover yours and fall in love with your ideal suit!


Our Riviera Coco’s fashion stylists have some tricks for you.
Even if you have a difficult silhouette to dress, we have you covered. We prepared for you tricks to slim down your waist, take advantage of your curves and create optical effects that will make you look and feel at your best.

YOUR GOAL:  Slim down your waist and get the right support. 


  • You have a large bust, narrow hips, and you carry most of your weight in the middle
  • You tend to gain weight in your stomach, back and upper body
  • Your waist is undefined and the widest part of your frame
  • You also have a full, shorter neck and usually a full face
  • Your buttocks are somewhat flat
  • Your slender legs are your best asset



Juliette, fashion stylist recommends:
“The trick is to draw attention away from the center
of your body. Remember, the perfect bathing suit will
make people notice your assets. Focus needs to be on
your breasts and skinny legs. Choose details near your
chest or neck to get this effect. Feel confident and look

Tummy concealing suits will be your best tool. If you carry your weight mostly in the middle of your silhouette, you need to choose a swimsuit that
conceals that specific part. Whether you prefer to be covered up or you’re out to slim your belly, there are a number of one-piece and two-piece tankini suits that will help to smooth out your middle. Look for suits that will define your waist and add curves to your figure.


  • One-piece & tankinis suits with hourglass prints are particularly flattering, color blocking for example
  • Draped suits will help define your waist
  • Choose wired tops with good bust support
  • Always choose lined swimsuits for better shaping support
  • Skirted A-line suit, monochrome or with light-colored busts
  • Straps that sits mid-shoulder to get a centered slim effect
  • Suits with wrap shirring effect or crisscross details in the middle
  • Bottoms with hip details such as side ties to widen your hips
  • High waisted bottoms are perfect for you
  • Avoid wearing dark bottoms with a light/printed top
  • Skirted suits with a light-colored bust and bottom that flares at
    the hip are flattering and help create an hourglass effect

Riviera Coco’s fashion expert Rachel says:
“If you want the perfect optical effect choose one piece
swimsuits with dark colored sides and a light, bright or
printed middle. They give you an instant waist and the perfect curvy effect.”


To better embellish your belly, choose ruching details and pick them on high-waisted bottoms that go past the belly button. This type of bottom draws the attention away from your midsection and also highlights the narrowest part of your waist.

Chevron striped one-pieces work as hourglass effect visual shapers. A color-blocked suit can also create the effect of a cinched waist. Choose a tie or metallic accent on your waistline. Surplice-wrap silhouette trims your waist with its crossover fabric.

Choose high waist bikinis with good top support and shoulder centered straps. You don’t have to wear a bikini to flaunt a slip of skin, choose a monokini with small cut-outs or mesh fabric. A one-shoulder suit adds sex appeal without putting everything on display.
