Since Summer is near CBS 19's Tara Wheeler took a dive into swimsuit season fashions.
This year stripes can be used to your advantage. If you have a boyish figure and want to add curves, horizontal strips paired with side cut outs can help you have an hourglass figure look.
For people who are petite they can try vertical stripes to add height. For women who are petite they may want to stay away from prints and stick with bold colors.
To give the appearance of a bigger bust, patterns and ruffles can help. If you would like to down play your bust, halters give the best support. Solid colored bottom swimsuits paired with a pattern top can help you look balanced and slim. If you are concerned about your tummy, high-waisted retro swimsuits are in style this season.
