This body shape means that your top half is proportionate to your bottom half with a defined waist in the middle. The bathing suits that look the best on this body type are halters and a string bottom. Also, be sure to match the top to the bottom. Mixing prints or patterns might make your top or bottom half look bigger than the other, which is a look you want to avoid.

The “Inverted Triangle”
The “Inverted Triangle” body shape is the exact opposite of the “Triangle”. Here, your top is bigger than your bottom. The things you should look for when buying a bathing suit is a halter with thicker straps and possibly underwire to keep you in place. What’s great is you have the perfect body to wear itty-bitty string bikini bottoms to show off your itty-bitty booty.
