Swimsuits for a curvy body shape

Jun 13, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. ET

Flaunt a full figure with retro prints and screen-queen silhouettes.
The Rules:
1. Pear shape? Mix eye-catching print tops and solid bottoms.
2. Use ruching to distract the eye from the waist.
3. Hide flaws and accentuate assets with a one-piece or bottoms with coverage.
4. Skip skimpy -- go for wide bands to keep the look streamlined.
