I'm the shape and as you but a bit bigger, have been looking for a swimsuit I'm actually happy in for years. This came today and it's very flattering indeed. The low cut at the bottom makes my hips and bum look bigger which is fab, balances my shoulders without making me look bigger. So, yeah, I can highly reccomend that shape of costume.
A low leg really does balance things out, I was amazed. It goes more or less straight around the broadest bit of my hips (maybe just under) so that's where the eye I drawn. a high leg moves the vertical that the eye is drawn to up to the top curve of the hip where they;re slimmer. Hard to explain. A quick scroll through the M&S pants department might help.
THe plain coloured swimsuits don't scream 1950, I don't think. I don't imagine you'll be prancing about in high heeled sandals, red lippy, 'done hair' and tatts The styling of the models those sites add a lot, of, er, look.
