You don't necessarily have to carry the perfect measurements to have an hourglass body. In fact, many curvy models do. It's more of the proportions mentioned above.

However, even if we don't like the measurements, it's true that if you have this body, you have a great advantage over the rest of women because any bikini will fit you well. You can opt for all the cuts and styles that, whatever you wear, will suit you.


If you have this type of body, you should know that the best bikini for you is the one that defines the hip, for example, a panty that has the fine thread on the sides or has a different color on the sides than the front. It makes the hips stand out and create an optical effect that gives you more curve.

Another option is to choose a trikini, a perfect swimsuit to give more shape to your silhouette and enhance your hips. You can also select panties that have ruffles or striking prints, something that contrasts with the top, so you get a differential effect giving more prominence to your hips.
