How To Find Flattering Bikinis For Your Body!, Honolulu, Hawaii

Alright, ladies, we’ve all been in situations where we try on bikinis and it just isn’t working out how we’d hope. You find a super cute top but it just doesn’t fit your bust correctly or you find some adorable bottoms but you’re not filling them out how you’d like. At Born of the Water in Honolulu, Hawaii, you don’t need to sacrifice trendy and adorable bikinis for the sake of not fitting a certain top or bottom!

Common Fit Issues

Let’s face it: sometimes certain styles of bikini tops and bikini bottoms look great on the mannequin, but once you try it on, it doesn’t look like how it did on the display. Don’t worry, we at Born of the Water can’t stress enough that every woman is unique! A variety of woman walk through our doors everyday and no body is the same. Our trained staff deal with individuals who want to accentuate their bust, accentuate their bum, or prefer to be modest. Whatever fit challenges you face, we have solutions!

Our Recommendations: Bikini Tops

There are many different Pualani Bra bikini topstyles, tops and bottoms, that look best on different body types. If you have a larger bust, you’ll find that strapless bikini tops or triangle tops lack the support you need. We recommend tops that offer more support, such as those that have underwire. If you don’t care for underwire, we also carry tops that have formed, soft cups for more structure and support. If you find yourself with a smaller bust,  we recommend Pualani Hawaii’s Sport Tie top or their Bra tops with their built in push-up padding if you want to add some cleavage!

Our Recommendations: Bikini Bottoms

When running into issues with have a large bum or a small bum, the style of bikini bottoms can make all the difference. A lot of times with a larger bum and wider hips, bottoms with thin waistbands can dig in. In this case, we recommend bikini bottoms withAphrodite Bikini Bottom wider bands, like Pualani’s “Love Without The Handles.” For those ladies that have a smaller bum, and don’t want to cover up, we recommend cheeky, high-waisted styles such as La Pearl Swim’s “Aphrodite” bikini bottoms to give the illusion of more surface area on your rear! 

If you’re not sure which tops or bottoms flatter your body best, stop in to our location at Ala Moana Center to have a fitting session with our friendly staff! If you have any questions, please give us a call at (808) 944-8314 or e-mail swim@bornoftheh2o.com!
