Since summer is around the corner, I decided to help you find the perfect swimsuit for your body type. In the bathing suit world, there is no such thing as one size fits all. If you want to look hot, you have to find one that works for your figure, not against it. Here's how to find the most flattering swimsuit for your body type!

If you have broad shoulders, narrow hips and muscular legs, you most likely have an athletic body shape. You have few curves and your waist and hip measurements are pretty close. You want to look for a bikini that's going to give the illusion of a curvier figure. Look for a bikini that features ruffled trimming. Hm.com, $5

Pear shape means you're a little wider on the bottom than you are on top. In other words, small upper body (that means boobs, too) and a little more meat on your booty, hips and thighs. Look for a style that's going to create balance and draw eyes up. Avoid a string-bikini top. It will  make it obvious you have a small bust. Instead, look for one that's going to enhance and create cleavage. I love this pushup style. Victoriassecret.com, $53

Halter tops provide more support and uplift for bigger busts. Look for a patterned minimizer that's going to create a flattering balance between your chest and your hips. Seriously, how cute is this? Swimsuitforall.com, $44
