The A body type
The A body type has narrower shoulders, smaller chest, wider hips and larger bottom and perhaps also larger thighs. Over half of us are A’s so you’re in good company.
What to look for:
Swimsuits and bikinis that draw attention to your upper half. So if you’re looking for a bikini, go for one with lots of top detail. Consider padding at the chest to create more curves here. A bandeau is perfect for an A shape as this type of top serves to widen the upper body.
Avoid reaching for a hipster or a thick banded bottom as the extra fabric will draw attention downwards. Look for regular fit bottom instead. A one piece with decorative elements on the top is also a great option for the A body.
