2. Big Bust: For women with big breasts, it is advisable to wear halter-top bikinis that will not only give you a sexy cleavage, but also some much-needed support.

3. Short torso or short legs: If you have a short torso or short legs, go for an embellished or printed bikini top with a solid colored bottom. Doing this will draw attention upwards and make you look taller.

4. Long Body: For those who have a longer body shape, you should wear different kinds of embellishments such as rings, jewels, bows and ruffles at the hips and bust.

6. Broad Shoulders: For women with broad or broad shoulders, balance is the name of the game. It’s important to accentuate the lower half of your torso while downplaying the top. Therefore, one should wear moderately cut bikini bottoms that are full of colors and prints. You can also wear accessories like belts, pleats and sashes around your hips. Wide shoulder straps and square necklines also help you look good.

As for the top, you can also wear a ruffled or embellished bikini top, although this will take the attention away from your bum.
