This swimwear ties with the first one above as they both have the same print and feel.

4. The next look is a classic two-piece swimwear perfect for Inverted Triangle body types, the athletic ladies usually. The thin straps of the top do not draw attention to broad shoulders. The hardware, the metallic part of the bikini, diverts eyes instead to the more flattering parts. It also gives off the illusion of wider hips along with the mid-rise bottom garment. The color again suits morena skin and the earthy tones of the beach. Pair it with a light cover-up like Nadine’s or a wrap skirt to give off mature vibes.
