So we’ve covered the apple and rectangle body shapes. Now on to the pear. Pear-shaped girls should try and draw attention to their top half. Bikinis with plain bottoms and patterned tops are ideal. It may be worth buying bikini tops and bottoms separately if you unable to find a set. Alternatively, asymmetric swimming costumes work well to draw attention away from bottom halves and draw the eye upwards. Here are our top picks…
