When the nicer summer weather comes around, it is usually time to wear clothing that is a little more revealing, however, women tend to want to cover up parts of their body that they are not happy about. Many women will do this by wearing shorts rather than bikini bottoms whenever possible, if they are not comfortable with the size of the hips.
Interestingly, shorts actually accentuate the size of hips, rather than making them appear smaller. If you want to create the illusion of having smaller hips and slimmer legs, it can be a good idea to buy a bikini with a tie side. This will also have the appearance of making your legs appear longer and your waist appear slimmer.
If you are concerned about the size of your bust, then it is also possible to make it seem larger with the use of a bikini top that is ruffled or patterned. As well as making your bust look larger, this will also help to reduce the apparent size of your waist. If, however, you have a very slender figure, then bikini shorts can be a good idea as they can help to make your hips look larger.
