You have got to be kidding me!! The model on suit #1 DOES NOT HAVE AN HOURGLASS SHAPE!! She barely has a chest. Please brush up on the definitions of the body types before you carelessly "advise" people on what's best for them. You can't help them if you don't know yourselves. And how come they are all bikinis? Not everyone wants to show that much of themselves. There are surely flattering one-piece suites out there. Find someone who isn't anorexic to write the next article. thanks.

Even when I am at my fittest and fitting into a size 8, I'm still a 34D or DD, still 43, and still the mother of 3 with the marks to prove it. How about some suits for that segment of your readership -- or are you intentionally alienating us?

You are right! Those were horrible suggestions for hourglass figures. Disapointing article. That was some terrible research, writing, and editing.

1 the model is NOT an hourglass figure! I wish Fitness would post photos of realistic women. 2 you're supposed to give us ideas for hourglass shapes,larger breasted, thinner in the middle, & larger on the bottom, HOURGLASS. Last, if you're going to give us ideas & examples, how about giving us something with a friendlier budget sticker? Come on Fitness I expect better!
