Bikini Fit Workshop: The Girl from Copacabana

May 7th, 2012

Bikini Fit Copacabana Small Bust Body Type

Welcome to Part Two of our Bikini Fit Workshop! Last week, you learned about the busty “Girl from Bahia.” Today, we’ll be shifting focus to girls with the opposite body type: a smaller chest.


“The Girl from Copacabana”

Profile:
Small bust. Like this recreational beach, the Girl from Copacabana is full of energy. She has a boyish frame and would need to create feminine fullness up top with details, prints and ruffles.

Celeb Fit Twins:
Cameron Diaz, Keira Knightley, Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sienna Miller

Fit Needs:
Bikini tops with padding that will add dimension and also distract the eye with intricate details. She can sport fun prints, bright colors and the season’s latest trend—fringe!

Bikini Recommendation:

Ruffle Triangle Top Bikini – Ruffles are fun, flirty and a great way to give the illusion of volume. Horizontal ruffles balance out an “east-west” chest, while vertical ruffles give overall fullness.

Detail Triangle Bikini
– Details distract the eye from a bust line in wanting. As details are part of ViX’s signature style, there are plenty of options to choose from. A gold center bar or jeweled beads make for great, unexpected touches. Bold colors, rich patterns (such as stripes) and textured crochet also make great options for girls with modest breasts.

Bandeau Bikini – Bandeau styles with a ring detail or sweetheart neckline are best for giving smaller chests a more flattering silhouette. Molded cups, padding and even going up a size, are all tips that will make the bandeau work to your advantage.

Fan Fit Feedback:
Julie, from Orange County, is in love with ViX designs and uses color and detail to her advantage, “I’m small all around and didn’t think I could pull off the Jangala, but it gives me the right amount of animal print texture—I love it!”
