Best Swimsuits For Apple Shaped Body Type

Posted by Morgan Robins on

We’re here again to cover the last of the 4 traditional body types, but before we get into it, we wanted to remind everyone that most bodies don’t fit into exactly one of these categories. Every body is unique and all bodies change throughout life. While you may be more of one body type at one point in your life, that could change and that’s totally normal!! All shapes and sizes are beautiful and really it’s what the body allows us to do in life that really is amazing.

With all that being said, the last body type to go over is the “apple” or bigger busted body type. This body is identified by a wider shoulder and bust length, with a fuller midsection and narrower hips.

The bigger busted body type can be found on both tall and short people and is actually more common than you might think! If you are unsure what body type you might have, here are a few celebrity examples to help you out! 

Both Adele and Drew Barrymore have beautiful apple shaped body types and completely rock them!

Here’s a few quick tips on how to dress an apple or bigger busted body type. 


  • pick shapes or patterns that elongate the body
  • opt for dark colors around the waist
  • choose high waisted bottoms


  • avoid tops with puffy sleeves
  • be careful with cropped or boxy shirts 
  • choose necklines carefully- don’t pick necklines that are too straight across 

We have so many good swimsuit options for all kinds of body types here at Geode Swimwear because we believe in feeling comfortable and confident in your skin, whether that’s in a bathing suit, or just your everyday wear! Here are a few of our top swimsuit picks for apple body types!
