Best Swimsuits for Pear-Shaped Bodies

There’s nothing more liberating than wearing a swimsuit that fits you just right and accentuates the features you love. Here at Kitty and Vibe, we believe in creating swimsuits as well as a community that empowers women of all body types and sizes.

The term “pear-shaped” typically applies to those with narrower shoulders, a smaller bust and wider hips/a larger booty. If you’re shopping for swimwear this summer but not quite sure what styles suit your pear-shaped body best, allow us to be your virtual tour guide. 

Best Overall Top: Plunge Top

To draw more attention to the upper body, we love a low-cut neckline on smaller busts! Available in four bold and unique prints, the supportive, v-neck Plunge Top allows you to show a little skin without compromising support or comfort. The Plunge Top has adjustable straps and a tie back, with a thicker band around the ribcage so there’s no threat of underboob or slippage.

Best Lifting Top: Adjustable Underwire Top

The Adjustable Underwire Top Top is the best top for lifting & adding volume to smaller chests! Available in our bold & bright snake prints and our signature star & moon print, this top offers the lift that so many bikini tops for small boobs lack, a supportive tie-back, and comfortable underwired support.


Best Overall Bottoms: High Hip Bottoms

These best-selling bottoms cinch the waist and accentuate the booty with a cheeky, high-leg cut. Available to shop in sizes 00 – 28, these bottoms feature a tie that can be adjusted to the front or back, so you can mix up your style. 

Best Cheeky Bottoms: String Bottoms

The String Bottoms motto: if you got it, flaunt it! This style is SO customizable for your hips and booty. The String Bottoms have a high-hip cut and cheeky coverage that elongates your legs. They have hip ties, so you can adjust them to be more or less snug on you, depending on your preference. The String Bottoms hug your figure without digging into your hips.

Need more guidance? Under every Kitty and Vibe piece, there is a form labeled “Need Sizing Help?” where a Kitty expert can help you determine which size and/or style will suit your body best. Happy shopping, pear-shaped beauties!
