Good news is that nowadays there are a slew of trendy, yet flattering swimwear options to choose from online. To help, we're giving you a breakdown of the cute swimsuit trends for 2021 and how to choose the right one for you according to your figure.

Best Swimsuits For Pear Shape

If you are curvy at the hips and thighs and smaller on top, like Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Rihanna, then you should opt for swimwear that balances your proportions while getting the coverage you want for the bottom half of your body.

An eye-catching top with bright colors, patterns, and ruffles draws the eye upward, minimizing the bottom. For the ultimate swimsuit choice for pear-shaped beauties, go for a clean-skirted bottom that falls just below the largest part of the upper leg. Strappy one-pieces that feel like bikinis are so on trend this season!

In case you are proportionally smaller on top with an A or B cup, like Cameron Diaz, Mila Kunis, and Reese Witherspoon, then the swimsuits possibilities are endless. Since you don't have to worry about extra support or coverage, you are ready to dive deep into the top 2021 swimwear trends with embellished detailing, bows, and patterns to create the illusion of a larger chest.


Triangle tops and bold prints or intricate embellishments with ruffles are the perfect bikini choices for small-busted gals, however, padded push-up tops always offer extra lift and can create cleavage if you are up for it.

If you are curvy throughout with a full bust, hips, and thighs like Ashley Graham and Robyn Lawley then 2021 is the perfect time to show off your curves while getting enough support. If you're not interested in exaggerating your curves, then avoid monokinis or string bikinis with thick ties, which highlight your widest areas.


Color blocking is a foolproof way of highlighting your shape, with retro swimsuits (like high waists and boxy halter tops) being at the top of the list. Looking for the perfect definition? Then opt for one-piece swimsuits for curvy figures that come with waist detailing.

You have a generally straight figure with fewer curves, like Miley Cyrus, Ciara, and Jennifer Aniston? There are so many options to help you play up your curves with styles that compliment your frame. Suits with less coverage help to create the illusion of a shapelier figure.


Monokinis offer fantastic curves and one-pieces with strategically placed cutouts to instantly create the illusion of a fuller figure.
