First Published: April 8, 2010 3:20 PM EDT Credit: Victoria’s Secret
LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “This year we are going to see so many trends… we have neon this year… the ‘80s… glam rock… animal prints.” Of course, the gorgeous Alessandra Ambrosio is all over the swimsuit trends for Summer 2010.
Alessandra, along with fellow Victoria’s Secret stunners Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel look nothing less than fabulous in their swimsuits… they are models after all! But what about the rest of us? You know, real women with real bodies? There are suits for us too and the ladies, who know a thing or two about sexy swimwear, helped pick out suits for every shape.
CURVY Voluptuous like Kim Kardashian or Beyonce? Flaunt your curves in a neon bikini that will definitely get you noticed! Miranda recommends a sexy push-up halter-top and low-rise bottom from the VS Beach Sexy collection. “The banded top gives you the support you desire, as well as enhancing gorgeous cleavage,” Miranda says. A halter style top offers the most support, while the padding is removable, so you can customize the amount of push-up you want to create. The bottom is low-rise in the front and isn’t too skimpy on the backside.
ATHLETIC Got more of an athletic or boy build like buff stars Cameron Diaz or Kelly Ripa? Candice suggests a shimmery pastel two-piece with a wireless push-up halter-top and scoop bottom from the VS Very Sexy collection. “The bottom gives the illusion of a curvier woman, that hourglass figure… and gives extra cleavage for women who have smaller chests.” The halter style top features molded push-up padding to help create sexy cleavage and a halter gives the most support because you can tie it as tight as you need to. She also thinks soft colors are great for athletic women because they are more feminine.
POST BABY BODY Are you a new mommy like Kendra Wilkinson, Rebecca Gayheart and Kourtney Kardashian? Miranda suggests an animal print wireless push-up halter tankini paired with a string bottom as a great option if you have a bit of a tummy. “Safe for a woman, who’s just had a baby… it covers the tummy, but is still sexy because we have the great little string bikini bottom,” she says. This halter style top from the VS Miracle Bra collection offers support and also comes with removable padding so you can choose the level of push-up you would like. The top conceals your middle and helps to draw the eye upward. You can tie the strings on the bikini to fit your hips.
