You lucky girl! You have the shape most women desire.


Hourglass is a well-balanced figure. You have proportioned chest and hips with the waistline as their narrowest measurement. Always keep in mind to maintain the balance and do not be afraid to show some skin. Feel free to try swimsuits with cut-outs to show off your sexy curves!


  • Your bust and hips are well balanced.
  • You have a beautifully defined waist.
  • You have gently rounded shoulders that align nicely with your hips.
  • Your waist is obvious and gracefully curves out to your hips.
  • You most likely have a rounded bottom and beautiful side as well as front profile.
  • Your upper body is proportionate in length to your legs which are shapely.
  • From top to bottom, you are a picture of harmony and balance.


Our French fashion stylist, Juliette, gives us her advice:
“Good news! You look great in most swimsuits. The key is to keep your proportions balanced and enjoy every look you wear. Be creative, try different styles and have fun with colors, textures, prints, and cut-outs. Take advantage of your attributes and remember to stay always classy.”



  • Ruffles, padding, and embellishments will help you enhance your curves.
  • Match the colors and patterns of your top and bottom. Always pair similar styles on tops and bottoms.
  • Bandeau or strapless tops fit great on you.
  • Pick tops with traps that go in the middle of your shoulder.
  • Bralette styles will maintain the balance of your shoulders
  • Match unpadded tops with simple bottoms, for example, a simple bandeau with a monochrome bottom. Pick simple bottoms that cut straight across your hips
  • Match padded tops or push-ups with embellished bottoms. Ruffled bottoms with ruffled bottoms for example, or push up tops with bright print bottoms.
    It’s all about balance!


  • Choose the ones that have banded waist or detail that narrows this part of your body.
  • Always privilege the ones that have the same color or print across your bust and hips.
  • A simple and elegant one-piece does a great job of accentuating curves while maintaining modern elegance. Plain color monokinis made a big comeback this season!
  • Play retro! Your classic shape allows you to choose retro silhouettes such as bandeau tops and high-waist bottoms. The high waist flatters the best taller frames. If you are petite, make sure the bottoms don’t come up too high.
