A one piece with a deep V-neck is perfect for shorter women with more muscular thighs and butt who want to balance their bottom halves. The plunging neckline draws the eyes up, which lets you show a little bit of flirty, fun cleavage on the beach. The twist detail featured in this style also adds a "ruching" effect — ideal for creating a super flattering tummy area.

If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, you'll want to pick a style that naturally elongates your bottom half. The side cutouts in this swimsuit move diagonally toward the bellybutton, which shifts the focus to your smallest point. The trendy, lace-up detail serves to achieve the same look for the middle section, too. This style is the perfect cross between a bikini and a one-piece.

Many one piece suits for larger-chested women feel matronly, but this pick — ideal for women with curvy, hourglass shapes — is super fun, playful and sexy. It features a beautiful color contrast and wired cups that support and lift. The belt in the middle also highlights a smaller waist, creating an overall figure-flattering look.

When you want to cover your tummy but still wear a bikini, the high-waisted suit should be your go-to style. This option has a retro, flirty vibe with polka dots — an all-in-one trend popular with celebrities like Taylor Swift. Paired with a balconet top, this pick has just the right amount of sexy, support and coverage. But remember, when choosing a high-waisted style, you want it to hit right around the belly button so you don't overwhelm your frame.
