When it comes to flaunting your body, no matter the size, bikinis are just perfect!

The right bikini hugs your curves without gaps or wrinkles, and accentuates the good bits without drawing attention to the not-so-good.

As sweet as this may sound, finding that right bikini can be really tough.

London-based swimwear designer, Anna Laub, the founder of Prism, shares a few tips on finding a bikini that works for your body.

Shop the top

"Triangle tops look best on a small bust; if yours is bigger, try something with straps and underwire. It's counterintuitive, but padding is great for large breasts because it provides support. Halter tops work for everyone, as long as there's enough coverage, check from all angles."

Aim high

"The higher the leg is cut, the longer your legs will look. And high-waisted bottoms can hide stomach pooch. Tie string-bikini bottoms before putting them on. The closer the front and back panels are, the better the fit."

Stick to solids

"They're more flattering than prints, which can also look dated. I gravitate toward black, dark blue, and gray, but yellow or red can look wonderful against certain skin tones."
