Hourglass Swimsuits
What is an Hourglass Body Shape?
If you have curves or a classic hourglass body shape, you’re likely stuck in the online shopping loop of trying to find hourglass swimsuits to flatter your curves. But what is an hourglass body, and how do you know if you have one?
Hourglass bodies are exactly what they sound like. An hourglass body is shaped just like a traditional sand timer, wide at both the bottom and the top and considerably narrower in the middle. People with curvier, hourglass bodies tend to have wide hips and shoulders and a more defined and narrow waistline. You might also have curvy thighs and hips and a fuller bust.
If you have an hourglass body, it can be difficult to find hourglass swimsuits or swimsuits for hourglass shapes. At Hermoza, we know how hard it can be for curvy women to find bathing suits for hourglass body types that match their style and needs. We believe that every woman deserves to feel confident, especially in a bathing suit. That’s why we are dedicated to providing elegant swimwear for curvy figures that you can feel good in.
How to Choose a Bathing Suit for Your Curves
The online retail world of swimsuits for curvy women can be hard to navigate. However, just knowing your body type is the first step in choosing the right bathing suit for your body. The classic hourglass body shape is well-suited for the classic two-piece bikini, as it can provide a sense of visual balance between your broad shoulders and hips while drawing attention to your narrow waist. Here’s what you should look for when searching for bikini swimsuits for curvy figures:
  • Triangle tops. We recommend choosing a triangle bikini top with adjustable straps and coverage to enable you to personalize the top to your unique size and shape while keeping attention on your waistline.

  • Halter tankini tops. You can also choose a halter tankini top for a look that hovers between a one-piece swimsuit and a full bikini. The halter tankini top can draw attention to your waistline while fully supporting a fuller bust at the same time.

  • Full coverage bottoms. When browsing swimsuits for hourglass figures, we suggest pairing your top with full coverage bottoms to cover more of your bottom and hips. This modest swimwear style downplays your hips and bottom enough to draw more attention to those beautiful curves.


    If two-piece bikinis aren’t your style, there are lots of flattering curvy one-piece swimsuits for your hourglass shape. Here’s what you should look for when searching for one-piece swimsuits:
  • Plunging necklines. If you want to keep your stomach covered and show off your cleavage, a plunging neckline is an excellent option. A plunging neckline also elongates the body, creating a slimming effect. 

  • Bust support. If your bust is on the larger or fuller side, we recommend searching for a swimsuit with plenty of support. Many bathing suits for hourglass figures offer support in the form of underwire inserts or removable cups.
