Swimsuits 07

Reporter: Laticia Gibson

Nothing makes a statement like a sexy swimsuit in summer. So what will your costume be saying about you? If you're on a budget and need some advice then Kylie Jordon from Sunseeker Swimwear knows how to make the most of what you've got.

"When women are shopping for a swimsuit they should really be looking for something that accentuates what they have got and minimises their flaws."Kylie enlisted the help of three women with very different body shapes to explain what to look for in a cozzie.

Firstly, for the fuller figure with a smaller bust. "This singlet has a molded cup which will give you a bit more support and a bit of oomph in the bust area" explains Kylie. "In the pants she has got a plain pant with a bit of tummy control which will help minimise the tummy area and a higher cut in the leg which will give her a longer line."

Next the voluptuous woman with slim hips. "She has a larger bust so she is looking for a swimsuit with a lot of support perhaps an underwire, but in this particular case she has gone for a sporty look and it has 3 points of adjustment... that is at the front.... And behind, the neck and on the back and it also has a lot of side support. Sharee is thinner in the hips so she can get away with a sexier look and this is the boy leg it has a bit of side rouching it also has a lot of coverage in the bum for the more sexy sporty woman."

Then for the petite lady with a smaller bust and bottom. "She is looking for a swimsuit that accentuates her curves and that is what the stripes are doing here. She also has smaller bust so she is looking for a swimsuit with some cups to give her a little bit more cleavage and a lower scoop back in this case that gives her a bit more bum."

Available as separates, bikinis and one pieces these swimmers range from $60 to $140. No matter what your body shape, Kylie says there is one common mistake women make.

"They buy tops that don't suit their cup size, we make swimwear that go from A cup right through to F cup so there really is a cup for every women."

If you're looking for a suit to place you in the best shape, then Meredith Barry from Rochford Swimwear reckons she has the answer. "So this is the powermesh as you can see it is very strong and it has a lot of lycra to hold your stomach in. You have got the floating underwire which gives the bust a very good support."

Retailing at $114, it promises to compliment any figure.

"You can see across the front it is really beautiful drapped line. So you have the power mesh that is underneath here and you have the soft wide straps that stops it digging in at the shoulders which is great for bust support so our floating underwire for a bust lift and you can see the side there...there is some really nice side coverage there for the bust and to also stop any rolls coming over and then the back it is a nice low key hole which is flattering with adjustable straps for bust support as well and it has the back seamline as well to give a really nice fit at the back" adds Meredith.

"When you buy your swimsuit you want it to work for you it is an investment, get out there enjoy the summer, look your best" says Kylie.
