As a female, the one thing that we all want to look and feel great in is a bikini when we're hitting the beaches on our summer holidays or "vacations" as they say in the USA. We know that not everyone's body type in the same, we are all different in our own unique and special ways and our bodies are too.

Here's how to style your bikini to suit your body shape to show off your best assets and still look hot and stylish in the sunshine.

You've got bigger thighs, a small waist and a fuller bust. A bit like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez. If this is you, you have it easy! You can get away with majority of styles of swimwear. Vintage style swimwear looks good on you, think high waisted bikini pants and halter tops. Likewise, colour blocking can help highlight your shape too.

You have rounder shoulders and a flatter bottom. An average to big bust and are fuller around the middle. If you carry your weight in the lower part of your body, again vintage style swimsuits that are high waisted are great at concealing your tummy if you don't feel comfortable in a low rise bikini bottom. Wearing thick strapped swimsuits can make your shoulders feel smaller and also provide support for you. Avoid super thin straps, as these can make you appear bigger.

You have shoulders narrower than your hips and it's mainly all about the booty. You're curvy at the hips and thighs and smaller on top. Choose a bikini or swimsuit that will draw the eyes upwards, possibly with eye catching detailing around the bust. If you're feeling daring, a plunging neckline will also draw attention to your bust area and take attention away from the hips. Avoid boy shorts or a thick banded bottom as this will draw attention to the area you're wanting to hide.

For you it's all about the bust and you are thinner at your waist and your hips. You're chesty and you need more support, like Katy Perry. It's mainly all about support and halter neck tops will help with this, especially if they are adjustable around the back so you can get a perfect fit. A bottom half bikini pant with detailing or frills will also draw attention to your hips and this will make your figure look more balanced out than top heavy. Avoid bandeau bikinis, as these don't give you the full support you need.

You're straight up and down like Cameron Diaz, For you, it's about creating an optical illusion of curves in all the right places. Bikinis with detailing and embellishment will do this and are also intriguing - this creates the illusion of curves at the top and bottom. Monokinis create fabulous curves, as do one-pieces with slashes or strategically placed cut outs. Tie-side bikini bottoms enhance curves and adjust perfectly to your size.
