Let us just put this out there: No matter what shape or size you are, you can wear whatever you want (and whenever you want!). Still, the truth is some girls find that certain cuts and silhouettes flatter them better than others, especially when it comes to swimsuits. And if it makes you feel more confident, then we're here to help you out! Below, five tips to keep in mind if you're a curvy cutie out to shop for some swimmies. Starting our summer countdown now!

TIP 1: Mix n' match your bikinis! A lighter-colored top and darker bottoms are ideal for accentuating your upper half and subduing the lower.

TIP 2: It's all in the details! Draw attention away from your hips by picking a suit that's got an interesting, eye-catching touch up top.

TIP 3: String bikini bottoms are ideal because you get to customize the fit (so you can avoid unflattering hip bulges and control the diameter of the leg opening).
