Bathing suit season can turn even the most secure woman into a “glass half-empty” kind of person. Instead of showing off our best features, we obsess about hiding our worst.

But, unless we want to return to the early 1800’s when women wore long dresses over pants to the beach, we have to make peace with the one-piece or two-piece bathing suit.

Finding the perfect style and fit to de-emphasize our “flaws” shouldn’t be viewed negatively. We should be thrilled to have so many beautiful styles at our disposal. Try to imagine a world where there was only one size and one style of bathing suit yet millions of different bodies. Now, I dare you to get that image out of your head.

As the great philosopher and supermodel Gisele Bundchen once said, “We are women, we are so different, our imperfections are what make us unique and beautiful.”

So, make that half-empty glass, half-fullby purchasing the perfect Red Carter bathing suit for your body. (And try not to imagine how great Gisele would look in every one of them.)

Pear Shaped Isn’t Just for Diamonds: Bathing Suits for Your Pear Shape

Since your hips are wider than your shoulders, you want to draw the focus to the top half of your body.

The Red Carter Tahitian Tide Twist Front 1 Piece beautifully emphasizes the shoulders while providing full coverage in the areas you want to keep covered.

The embroidery on the Perennials Keyhole High Neck Top is as eye-catching as the peek-a-boo cleavage and strappy back. Paired with the matching hipster bottom, you’ll have a bathing suit perfect for in and out of the pool.

Big Girls Don’t Cry: Bathing Suits for Your Larger Bust

I have two words for you: wardrobe malfunction.

When you have a larger bust, the last thing you want is to bust out of your bathing suit.

The Red Carter Martinique Macrame High Neck Maillot will keep everything in its place with the help of removable bra cups. The lovely overall pattern will draw attention to your entire body, not just your bust.

The Red Carter Tahitian Tide Twist Bra Top shows just enough cleavage to be sexy yet features a D-bra with a supportive fit. The Tahitian Tide Hipster Bottom is reversible so it’s like having two different bikinis which makes packing just a little easier.

Small but Mighty: Bathing Suits for Your Small Bust

One-shoulder or off-the-shoulder bathing suits are perfect for a small bust because you don’t need extra support to hold the girls up.

The Red Carter In Stitches Smocked Off Shoulder 1 Piece bathing suit has an adorable ruffle which camouflages a smaller bust. The multi-colored smocking emphasizes the waist, giving you an hourglass look.

Play Ball: Bathing Suits for Your Athletic Body

With an athletic body, it’s all about adding curves and not looking so straight up and down.

Waist Not, Want Not: Bathing Suits to Conceal Your Tummy

It sounds counterintuitive, but accentuating a waist is often the best way to hide a paunch or muffin top.

The Red Carter Plumeria Halter Plunge Keyhole 1 Piece bathing suit gives the illusion of cinching in the waist. The keyhole cleavage and flattering shoulder neckline draw attention up and away from any perceived belly problems.

Curves Ahead: Bathing Suits for Your Curvy Body

A curvy body is great, but you don’t want to look like you’re spilling out of your bathing suit.

The Red Carter Splice & Dice Side Cut Maillot gives this illusion of showing much more skin than you really are while still providing ample support.
