It’s always bathing suit season somewhere for juniors! With their youthful enthusiasm and love of fashion and color, juniors can wear just about any style of bathing suit or bikini. But if this is your first time buying a junior bathing suit – or you haven’t purchased one in a while – here’s how to make the most of the shopping experience.
Know Your Shape
Just like buying swimwear for women or men, it’s important to know what type of shape you have. The five most common body types are:
Apple – where your hips, waist and bust are almost the same width
Pear – where your hips are wider than your waist or bust
Inverted triangle – where your bust and the shoulders are wider than your waist and hips
Hourglass – where your bust and hips are generally the same width, but you have a small waist
Rectangle – where you can’t tell the difference between the width of your hips, waist and bust
Choose Your Style
There are so many different styles in bathing suits for juniors. Naturally, the types you choose will depend on what you want to do – laying out in the sun vs. surfing – as well as your body shape.
High-cut swimsuits are great for shorter juniors as they make your legs look longer. They also add the illusion of curves if you have a straight shape.
Boyshorts work well if you have a larger bust, or an hourglass or inverted triangle shape, since they make your hips look wider.
Bikini tops come in all types of designs such as strapless, halter or triangle. They’re perfect for those who want to draw attention to the top half of their bodies.
Tankinis give you the flexibility of a bikini – you can even mix and match pieces – while giving you a bit more coverage. Pear and apple-shaped juniors may prefer this style.
One piece suits can showcase an hourglass figure and work well if you want a bit more coverage or plan on participating in various watersports activities.
