Halter Tankini Swimsuits – Triumph of Femininity

Arta Let’s sOCEANize 🙂

  • As described in our previous posts halter tankini swimsuits will flatter nearly any body shape but are particularly suitable for women broader at the top than the bottom. This type of bathing suit tends to cut your wide shoulders by balancing out your body and making it look more symmetrical.

    Halter tankini swimsuits add some curves and volume for the upper part of your body by enhancing your feminine assets. Nevertheless, this type of bathing suit accentuates your arms so in case you don’t want to pay attention to your arms you should consider choosing some other type of tankini swimsuits.

    Rosewood Halter Tankini swimsuit is among the bestsellers of this season. Women feel sexy and comfortable while wearing this stylish tankini bathing suit.

    The halter tankini is evaluated as a great deal due to the low price. High quality of it is appreciated by women who have bought this tankini. The tankini top is said to be very flattering by accentuating the bust and minimizing the tummy. Women are happy about tankini top not riding up while in the water.

    The option of choosing different sized top and bottom is highly appreciated by many customers. Bottoms are said to be high enough to ensure the needed coverage and comfort yet being sexy.

    There are many options available for this tankini – you can order just halter tankini top or the top together with regular briefs, skirts, boy shorts or banded shorts.

    However, as always there are also some negative points or at least points requiring your attention and consideration before purchase. One customer indicated that bottoms wore out quite quickly and the middle of them became sheer (but it could be the result of incorrect care for the bathing suit as no one else mentions this).

    The fit at the bust area is said to be great and supportive, but few customers advise the lower part of the top clinging to the body.

    There is some inconsistency about the color – some state the color is brighter in life than in the picture, some state the color is more peach orange, coral than pink.

    Lack of support for sizes starting from DDD.

    Quite many customers comment on fit and the general feedback is that if you want the top to be tight you should order your regular size but if you wish it to be more relaxed you should go for a size bigger. It could be a good idea to get into contact with the retailer to check on the size you should go for based on your measurements.

    To sum up, we do find this halter tankini bathing suit a great deal especially the price given. If you are DDD and up, you should rather look for some other swimsuit due to lack of support for your sizes. The color is said to be more coral than pink but the majority still find the print gorgeous. This halter tankini is perfect for highlighting your girls and concealing your tummy but before ordering you should check with retailer about the size you should order.

    Other Great Choices of Halter Tankini Swimsuits – Emphasize Your Beauty

    Let’s have a look at our selection of halter tankini swimsuits! There are so many choices but no worries – as said by Dumbledore (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, by J. K. Rowling):

    It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

    So do you like halter tankinis or halter swimwear in general? Or perhaps some other type of bathing suits is the right one for you? How do you make yourself look and feel good while on the beach? 🙂 You are welcome to share your experience and knowledge as someone could find it helpful!

    Did you know, it’s really REALLY hard to put together a list of apple shaped celebrities?!

    Most famous folk tend to keep their figures as slim and trim as possible at all times, meaning most of them are “celery” or “string-bean” shaped!

    Mind you, there are some very famous *pear* shapes. For some unknown reason, big booty seems to be the flavour of the month – a la Kim Kardashian, J Lo, Beyonce and Co.

    So back to apple shaped celebrities – famous women with a thicker middle; usually with great legs. Now, THIS was the key to identifying the (potential, should they actually eat a pasta dinner) apple shaped celebrities – by their legs, ye shall know them.

    And the point of finding them? Style inspiration of course for the rest of us apple shapes! Whenever you see their pic in future, you may just find some style inspiration (even if it’s what NOT to wear!).

    10 Apple Shaped Celebrities

    1 – Liz Hurley. Liz makes it on this list purely because of her lovely legs and the fact that she works them, baby. Have you ever seen her on the red carpet without a thigh high split – or a short skirt like this one? She is deliberately drawing our attention to her legs, and not her waist – which I suspect may be her problem area.

    2 – Amy Schumer. She’s baring the boobs AND has a thigh high split in this pic, so you’re too busy looking at them rather than her tum. Although I’m not sure the triangles on her torso are a good idea. They look like they’re pointing out her pot belly!

    3 – Drew Barrymore. I really don’t like this dress on Drew; it just makes her mid-section look thick. It would have been so much better if it was fitted under the boobs. If you have an apple shape – take note!

    4 – Catherine Zeta Jones. Wowza! She always looks great. But I especially love how she’s working the pocket in this pic – you wouldn’t catch a pear shape doing something like that! In this pantsuit, CZJ is drawing attention to the area ABOVE her tum – with a bright print, and making sure it is fitted at her narrowest point (under the boobs).

    5 – Jessica Simpson. I know it’s usually a good idea to emphasize boobs (and legs) to distract from a pot belly, but this is going a tad too far in my boobs books.

    6 – Adele. A show stopping jacket over black is a great look (though I’d prefer it shorter, otherwise all the volume further down can make an apple shape look big all over). I’ve noticed myself, that black hides a multitude of sins. The same dress in a light colour can make me look 6 months pregnant, but switch it to black or something dark and my tummy disappears like magic!

    7 – Lindsay Lohan. Yes, she’s usually incredibly thin, but I’ve seen quite a few pics of her in a one piece bathing suit floating around on the web and it is NOT a good look on her. Just like when I wear a one piece. One apple shape can definitely recognise another!

    8 – Kate Winslet. This dress started off well – halter necks can be very flattering for an apple shape, and the beading also keeps your eyes up – but then the fabric creases all around the tummy area. The lesson for other apple shapes? Steer away from fabrics which crease – or just don’t sit down 😉 !

    9 – Dawn French. Dawn looks cute as a button here! This is one of my “go to” looks, expecially in the cooler months – a tunic, with tights or leggings, and boots.

    10 – Lisa Rinna. Hooray for splicing! There’s nothing like it for creating a slimming look around the tummy area. It’s a trick I’m all too familiar with 😉 … see below!

    Can you think of any other apple shaped celebrities to add to my list of style inspiration?!

    Best Swimsuits For Apple Shape

    Women with an apple shaped body tend to have narrower hips, with a less defined waist. If this is your body type, you’ve probably developed some strategies for dressing in street clothes, but with the body-conscious lines of swimwear, the same rules don’t necessarily apply. But that’s no problem. Certain styles will visually trim your waist, giving you hourglass curves. Just like every other body type, there are some basic suggestions that will have you looking beautiful and feeling great.

    RUCHING AND RUFFLES

    There’s nothing like the retro glam of ruching to give a torso flattering curves. The twist front neckline of this vibrant one-piece from Anne Cole and with pin-up drama of ruching give it a flattering, feminine look. For a more modern take on the look, this Anne Cole one-piece has a center ruched panel in a bright print, with solid color panels on the side (another great look for apple shapes – we’ll get to that later).

    Ruffles are a great way to balance narrow hips with strong shoulders. This marries both techniques, with ruching on the bodice and a flirty ruffle around the hips. Or try a sleek look in black with this black Gottex one-piece, with a feminine black ruffle with white details.

    STRATEGIC PRINT

    Another effective way to visually slim your waistline is with prints. The V-shaped design of the lush floral print on this Cole of California suit creates a line that draws the eye inward at the waist. The wrap style of this one-piece from Anne Cole, emphasized by the vibrant lines of its colorful print, visually cinches the waist.

    COLOR BLOCKS

    Strategic color blocking can also work to make your waist look smaller. This bold graphic print one-piece swimsuit from Catalina has a pink band high around the ribcage, often the narrowest part of the torso. V-shaped panels of black, white, and sexy mesh inserts on this bandeau suit from Anne Cole visually whittle the waist.

    SIDE PANELS
    Side panels that contrast with the center of your suit can create the illusion of deeper curves. The curved cutouts of this bombshell black mesh suit from Kenneth Cole create a womanly shape. Panels of slimming black outline a center panel with an eye-catching print, giving this suit from Allure an hourglass effect.

    ELONGATE WITH A DEEP V

    The plunging line of a deep V neck creates a longer, leaner look to your torso. This look is boldly sexy, so wear it with confidence and enjoy the attention. The neckline of Seafolly’s one-piece suit in a juicy melon shade dips all the way down to a waist-whittling knotted belt. Kenneth Cole’s sophisticated swimsuit has a dramatic V neck that meets a center twist to further minimize the waist.

    HIGH-WAISTED BOTTOMS

    A high waist both gives your hips curve to balance your shoulders and draws the eye inward at the waist. The bright print of this bikini from Raisins Curve creates sultry curves with a modern, fun style. Anne Cole’s sweetly sexy one-piece suit features lace crochet with white on the top and a high bottom of black that meets a black belt to visually cinch the waist.

    EMPIRE-WAISTED SWIM DRESSES

    An empire-waisted swim dress skims over the waist and ends in a skirt to enhance the hips. This elegant royal blue swim dress from Anne Cole floats over the waist to a fluttery skirt. With an empire waist and slimming black side panels, this Leilani swim dress features a floral print in cool, watery blues.

    With some carefully chosen details, you are sure to find a swimsuit to show off the best of an apple shaped body. From sweet to sexy, pick a look that makes you feel beautiful. The right swimwear will make you feel ready to play.

    How to Choose the Right Swimsuit for Your Figure

    Confidence may be your key to rocking just about anything, but little could be done with confidence if you choose the wrong type of swimsuit. Most swimsuit styles reveal large areas of your body, which can be intimidating if you’re trying to cover some unflattering body features.

    The different styles of swimwear, how much coverage they provide, and how they would look on your body shape, are all factors that put a lot of ladies under stress when buying a new swimsuit, but once you know your body type and pick a style that flatters your figure, you instantly get one of those silhouettes that everybody admires.

    So we have decided to put an end to the anxiety and confusion that come with shopping for women swimsuits. With the help of swimwear fitting and style tips from fashion experts, we’ve created a complete guide of the best fit tips for every figure.

    First, Know Your Body Shape

    Your first rule to knowing what swimsuit type will best fit you is to know your body shape, a common mistake that many ladies do is to buy a swimsuit because it looked good on a celebrity or a friend who has a different body shape.

    To know your body shape, measure your hips at the widest point, waist at the smallest point and bust at the fullest point. Once you have the numbers you can compare them to the following body shapes:

    Hourglass shape (aka X shape):

    Having an hourglass figure means that your bust and hips are have almost the same width, with a significantly smaller waist. This body type usually emphasizes the hips, legs, arms, chest and butt.

    Pear shape (aka A shape or triangle):

    The pear body shape is defined by having wider hips than both your waist and bust. Pear-shaped women tend to have a larger butt, a small bust and full thighs.

    Apple shape (aka V shape or inverted triangle):

    If your waist is significantly wider than your hips, and nearly as wide as your bust then you have an apple body shape. Other common characteristics of the Apple body figure is having slimmer legs, and a larger chest and abdomen compared to the rest of their body.

    Rectangle shape (aka Straight shape) :

    One of the most common body shapes in the US and UK right now, the straight body shape is defined by being thin all around with no significant difference between waist, hips and bust.

    Oval Shape (aka Round shape):

    Ladies with this body shape typically have an average or large bust, large hips, and a less visible or undefined waistline. In contrast with an hourglass figure, you have a fuller figure with a rounded bust and hips.

    Choose a Swimsuit Based on Your Body Type

    Once you know your body shape, you can focus more easily. These are some great swimwear tips for you to consider while purchasing a swimsuit:

    Swimwear for Hourglass Shaped Figure

    If you have an hourglass figure then you’re in luck, as almost any swimsuit will look great on you. From bandeau tops, haltertops and one-piece styles to two-piece swimsuits and bikinis, everything looks great on this type of figure.

    You should just work with colors, prints, cuts and embellishments to draw attention to the areas you want and camouflage the problem areas.

    Swimwear for a Pear Shaped Figure

    Ladies with a pear shaped body should stick to a swimsuit style with a lot of control and coverage. A one-piece swimsuit with high cut legs will make you look slimmer and taller.

    You can also go for two-piece swimsuits with dark colors on the bottom and a brighter tone for the top piece. You can also go for tops with detailing like pleats, ruffles or patterns, which should shift the attention to the top, while bottom piece should be kept simple and modest.

    Another good option is a tankini with an attached swim skirt, which should compliment your figure beautifully and camouflage any body flaws,

    You may like to accentuate your beautiful narrow shoulders and for this go for a strapless or one-shoulder asymmetrical swimsuit.

    Swimwear Tips for a Straight Shaped Figure

    Women with a straight shaped body should look for swimsuits that helps create that perfect hourglass shape, so look for a one-piece or two-piece bathing suit with some detailing around the waist.

    Generally you should go for swimsuits with a form fitting waist and a soft cup bra. This will make your straight shaped body look curvier.

    Another style that also works well for straight shaped figures are Halternecks, which are great for almost any body type. You can also try one-piece styles with a bold bright color overall and a darker one in the waistline, as this will make your waist appear smaller.

    Go for ruffles or diagonal lines, and bright, cheerful patterns to accentuate your curves. However, stay away from horizontal-striped, solid-colored styles, as well as ones with cuts straight across your body.

    Best Swimsuits for Apple Shaped Figures

    Apple shaped women should stick with crossover swimsuit styles. For example choosing a color-blocked style with color in the middle will balance the figure and hide problematic areas.

    Another good tip is to choose a model with high-cut legs, which should help shift the attention from your tummy and make your legs look taller.

    Hot Tip: Choose swimsuits in darker shades, such as black to slim down your body. You can also work with prints and patterns.

    Swimwear for Round Shaped Figures

    Just like the rectangle figure, oval body types look great in swimsuits that accentuate your waistline. Choose full coverage styles with a slightly cinched waist or one-piece swimsuits that have built-in tummy toners to define your waist.

    Go for something with a lot of details around the torso, which will provide visual interest and show your waistline curves.

    Now that you have all the information you need to pick a swimsuit that flatters your body figure, go ahead and check out our womens swimming suits section, we’re sure you’ll fall in love with many of these models.

    Description

    So…we clearly couldn’t come up with a fruity term for an hourglass! The hourglass was the most sort after figure of the golden era, so you’re in good company with the likes of Marilyn Monroe & Elizabeth Taylor lighting the way. Curves abound and an hourglass is characterized by a fuller bust and smaller waist, with hips & shoulder measuring about the same. There are some great Sirens Swimsuit options for you!

    Go for:

    Sweetheart necklines and wide adjustable straps will flatter & support your bust. Ruching will also show off your waist. Sirens lower leg line are also going to be perfect for maintaining the balance between your shoulders & hips. The only thing we recommend to avoid, is anything that creates bulk around your middle or obscures your waistline.

    Top Picks for Hourglasses:

    Lizzie, Eloise & Ava

    Pear (aka Triangle)

    Bottom heavy with fuller hips, bottom or thighs (or any combination thereof!) join the club sister! You’re in company, this is the most popular body shape with more than half of the female population boasting ‘pear’ status. Along with curvy lower halves, the ‘Sisterhood of the Pear’ generally sports slimmer upper torso, defined waists & smaller busts. The key to finding the ideal Sirens Swimsuit for a Pear isn’t to cover up your lower half, but to draw the attention up and balance out your bust and your hips.

    Halter style tops are perfect for pears! They give the bust a little extra oomph and broaden shoulders. Prints, Frills and Ruffles up top are also incredibly flattering. Sweetheart necklines or pad cups will also create more curves up top. A lower cut leg line will also keep your bottom tucked in and smooth the line from your hips to your thighs.

    Top Picks for Pears:

    Mindy, Chrissy and Shelly

    Strawberry (aka Inverted Triangle)

    It actually has a rather romantic ring to it, doesn’t it? I’m a Strawberry…darling! Strawberries tend to have a fuller bust and wider shoulders combined with a slender waist and narrow hips. The key to finding your ideal swimsuit is bust support and accentuating your slender hips!

    Wide straps are going to offer your bust added support, but there is also no need to shy away from a halter. You can also opt for boy legs, lower leg lines & frills and ruching across the bottom. The secret here is if your butt/hips look bigger in this – it’s a go for you!

    Top Picks for Strawberries:

    Greta, Ava and Lizzie

    Banana (aka Rectangle/Column)

    No Bananas don’t have a curve at each end…oddly enough it’s a straight up and down thing! Characterised by being evenly balanced from the shoulders to the hips with little to no waist. Bananas also tend to have naturally flatter bellies, smaller busts & flat bottoms. Creating curves is the key to finding the perfect Sirens swimsuit for you!

    You can definitely have a lot of fun with bikinis & two pieces here! A ruched high waist is going to create curves on your lower half. Prints & patterns will be more flattering then block colours. Ruffles will also add a little more oomph to a straighter figure.

    Top Picks for Bananas:

    Tiffany, Kate and Eloise

    Pears might be the most popular body type, but Apples are a very close runner up. Apples are generally fuller through the middle, very little waist definition, narrow hips & a fuller bust. Apples also tend to have slimmer legs and thighs than their fruity counterparts. Finding your ideal Sirens Swimsuit is about creating a little definition in the waist & flattering tummy.

    Ruching is perfect for apples as it will flatter the mid-section. One pieces are also excellent as they’ll elongate your torso as will a lower leg line. Don’t be afraid to play with ruffles and frills too, these can be perfect for adding a little playful detail while disguising the tummy.

    Top Picks for Apples:

    Best Swimsuits for Plus Size Apple Body

    This post is for you if you’re an apple shaped plus size and you want to camouflage your tummy fats, enhance your curves, and create a more hourglass silhouette. Here’s how to pick the best swimsuits for plus size apple body shape.

    You have an apple body shape if you have:

    • rounded shoulders
    • full breasts
    • you’re top heavy and carry the most weight on your tummy
    • you have average booty
    • you have beautifully-shaped legs

    In a hurry? Jump directly to the swimsuits specifically recommended for a plus size apple by clicking here.
    Otherwise, read on to learn the best styling principles for your body type.

    Born apples vs new apples

    Note that there are two types of apple ladies: the born apples and the new apples. Born apples are always shaped like an apple no matter their weight loss or gain.

    New apples, on the other hand, are women who originally had a different body shape when they were lean but became apple-shaped when they gained weight. This means that they gained the most fats on their midsection, making their bodies resemble an apple shape instead of their original body type.

    Although most bodies retain their own shape when they gain weight, it is not uncommon for a certain body shape (even for an hourglass) to turn into an apple if it gains weight. If this applies to you, consider this list as a swimsuit style makeover.

    One piece with tummy control panel

    A tummy control panel is an extra layer of fabric material attached to a swimsuit (one piece or bikini bottom) to tuck in tummy fats and shape the waist. Overall, this creates a firmer midsection, visually reducing your tummy fats and keeping them from sagging.

    Click here to view in Swimsuits For All.

    Think of it as a corset, only very lightweight that you can barely feel it’s there.

    Brands like Miraclesuit and Swimsuits For All who specializes in swimsuits with tummy control also pay attention to the design. You’ll notice that their swimsuits’ designs are all slimming. The patterns either mimic an hourglass, camouflage the tummy fats, or both.

    And when it comes to supporting your full breasts, they do have you covered.

    They usually cost a little bit more pricey but with the reliable support they provide, (both to your tummy and breasts) it’s definitely worth to invest in at least one.

    Peplum tankinis

    Click here to view in Amazon.

    Hugging the waist and flaring at the bottom, peplum tankinis create the illusion of an hourglass figure. They trick the eyes to see a slimmer waist and a more defined pair of hips.

    It’s safe to say that if you’re an apple shaped plus size, you can never go wrong with a peplum tankini. Plain or printed, rely on it to always flatter your figure.

    Vertical and diagonal lines

    Click here to view in Swimsuits For All.

    Vertical lines are naturally slimming as they make you appear taller than you actually are; while diagonal lines slim you down by distracting the eyes from focusing on the width and bulk of your tummy and softening your edges.

    Click here to view in Amazon.

    Whether it’s a swimsuit or your daily outfits, you can always rely on these lines to create that elongating and slimming effect.

    Horizontal lines, on the other hand, should be avoided by plus size apple and rectangle ladies. It adds more width to your proportion, making you appear bulkier and shorter. Instead of width, a plus size apple should strive for more visual length—something that horizontal line can’t provide.

    A-line swim dress

    Whoever said that swim dresses and tankinis are boring just don’t know how to look for the right cut. If you’re an apple or rectangle, avoid swim dresses that hug both your midsection and hips.

    Click here to view in Amazon.

    The possibility of straight swim dresses looking flattering on you is a million to one chance simply because no contrast is happening between your hips and waist. Unlike A-line swim dresses.

    A-line swim dresses, like peplum tankinis, create a flattering contrast between your waist and hips creating the illusion of an hourglass figure.

    High waisted bikinis

    Click here to view in Amazon.

    Not all body types can pull off a high waisted bikini look. Luckily, apple ladies are perfect for it. The high waist bottom tucks in the tummy fats and accentuates an apple’s waist curve.

    If you want a sexier version of a one piece and show a little more skin, high waisted bikinis are definitely your best choice.

    Deep plunging necklines

    Swimsuits with plunging necklines visually elongate the body specifically the torso and the arms. As a result, they make your body appear slimmer and curvier than it actually is.

    Click here to view in Amazon.

    This one piece, for example, will even slim you down with its plunging V-neckline and its attached tummy control panel and ruchings at the waist.

    Remember, the deeper the neckline, the slimmer, curvier, and taller your body appears. Make sure though that the swimsuit has enough support to hold your bust.

    If you don’t feel very secure wearing swimsuits with an open neckline, go for this crisscross detail in the middle. It has the same slimming effect plus a very secure bust support.

    Hourglass effect swimsuits

    These are swimsuits that create the illusion of an hourglass figure by using cutouts, lines, and patterns to make your waist appear slimmer and curvier than it is. Take a look at the example below:

    Click here to view in Amazon.

    The see-through cut out on both sides of the waist accentuate its curves and make it seem more defined. Furthermore, the crisscross detail in the middle accentuates the hourglass effect by distracting the eyes from further focusing on the tummy.

    Click here to view on Swimsuits For All.

    You can also achieve the same effect by playing with lines. As you can see with this one-piece, the crisscrossed diagonal lines create an hourglass impression of the waist.

    Designs apple body should avoid

    • Avoid swimsuits with horizontal lines and patterns. Horizontal line widens the body which is the opposite of what you wanna go for if you’re an apple shaped plus size.
    • The same is true for straight-across bandeaus. They’ll only make your torso appear wider and shorter. Remember, the goal is to elongate, not widen.
