Bikini Fit The Girl From Olinda Apple Shape

“The Girl from Olinda”

Apple shape. Deemed the country’s first Capital of Culture, Olinda is home to several historical landmarks that sprawl a hill overlooking the Brasiilian coastline. Like the city’s extensive reach, the apple shape of the Girl from Olinda is wider at the top with minimal waist definition. A figure-flattering suit will benefit her body type.
