The perfect bikini body - Rachel Bilson's stunning Pear shape physique

Nicky's top tips for buying the perfect bikini! Bikini lesson 1 - know your shape...

Bikini Lesson 1 - Know your shape – Pear?


Are you a pear shape? Apple shape? Hourglass or Athletic?


Are you are a classic pear shape – like the gorgeous Rachel Bilson, Tiny up top, and curvier through the hips and thighs? Show off your tiny waist and highlight your favourite features by being clever with colour and shape!!


Want to draw attention to your boobs? What about picking a printed bikini top, and going for plain bottoms to draw the eye line up? Either the Sanddancer bandeau or the Daydreamer are perfect shapes for you to try!


Avoid string bikini tops – whilst you don’t need to worry about the support factor, super skimpy stringy styles can accentuate your bottom half and make it look even fuller. Saying this – following in the Kardashian ladies style, and Kylie Jenner – this might be exactly the look you are going for J


Totally on trend – try a high cut bikini bottom, this will elongate your legs and as an added bonus this shape is totally hot right now!


A fuller tie side also has the same effect – not only can you wear as high or low as you want, the tie side at the hip, makes your hips look slimmer!
