IF YOU ARE PETITE…
Elongate your frame by showing off a lot of leg. The best way? With a string bikini. Hit the beach with your go-to pieces (Melissa Odabash, $104 each; odabash.com) and layer with a pretty playsuit (Zimmermann, $395; zimmermannwear.com).
Your goal is to lengthen your body. Fake it with strategically placed cut-outs, like with this fun one-piece ($246; madewell.com). Keep your suit (especially one with such a bold print) in the spotlight with a sheer crocheted cotton-lace dress (Miguelina, $450; net-a-porter.com).
