Not everyone has been blessed with a JLO-esque bottom, but if that’s what you are seeking, with the right fit you can find a flattering bottom that helps give you a more bootylicious look.
Brave enough to bare your bottom? Here’s how to do it! On any petite bum, a Brazilian cut bikini is the way to go. These bottoms offer minimal coverage, giving you a rounded and fuller look. This bikini style takes confidence to wear, but once you do you won’t want to go back! There’s a reason Brazilian beach babes are known for their curves. Another cheeky bottom is the surf cut. This style sits straighter across the back than the Brazilian, which helps add width to athletic or slim hips. Comparisons below, but be sure to try both if you have a tiny bum (the surf cut is great for active beach days, as it stays on better in the waves than the Brazilian).
To round out your backside, a ruched back seam adds fullness. Now that’s what we call bootylicious! For additional volume, ruffles and other details like straps or ties help emphasize your lower half. Keep the detail on the areas you want to boost, whether it’s balancing your top half with more hips or getting that Beyoncé booty (we can dream right?).
Prefer more coverage on the bottom? Boyshorts and retro girl leg styles cut across your hips and create a look of fuller hips and bum. One piece swimsuits with longer leg lines, like the Seafolly Boyleg Mio, achieve the same effect. For even more oomph, try a swimdress or skirted bottom with lots of ruffles around the hips for flirty style. Covering up on the sand? Boardshorts with a bold print are your new best friend.
