Bare Essentials for Bikini Season

NEW YORK (March 22, 2007) -- Stars look irresistible by choosing the right suit for their body type. We show you how to do the same with styles from Victoria's Secret's new Swim 2007 catalogue at New York's Hotel Gansevoort.

"You really want to stay away from a one piece if you're a boyish figure because a one piece will just accentuate the straight up and down silhouette," Mitro said.

If you have a tall, straight figure like Cameron Diaz and Naomi Campbell, emphasize your bust with a halter style just as they do! Victoria's Secret has a Miracle bra push-up halter-top for unparalleled cleavage enhancement.

"And it has padding," Mitro said. "The padding actually pushes the breasts up and in with the band so it gives you extra cleavage."

An hourglass figure, which is a very small waist with a larger chest and hips, will benefit from a two-piece with more coverage. Victoria's Secret achieves the look with a tankini. Beyonce emphasizes her enviable waist with boy shorts.

"You want a little support," Mitro noted of this body type. "Sometimes a string bikini doesn't give enough support."

And, America Ferrera and Jennifer Hudson can contour their curves with Victoria's Secret's Magic Suit. It's made with a special fabric that accentuates your shape by firming.

"It's $130 but in comparison to a lot of other suits and designer suits it's still very affordable," Mitro said.
