Swimsuits for Petite Figures

"Swimsuits often don't fit me." -- Fong Wa Chung, 27

Fong Wa's petite figure makes finding the right suit a challenge. "The bottoms are usually too big," she says. We showed her why a string bikini works best: She can cinch the side ties for a snug fit. "I never would have picked this suit myself, but it's perfect for my body," Fong Wa says.

On Fong Wa: Aquarella Rainbow top, $58, bottom, $58, gonebananasbeachwear.com

The best suits for petites assumes that all petits are young and sexy. I am old and sexy. Where are the suits for senior petites who do not wish to wear bikinis?????

I hear you girls! It's really hard for a normal shaped woman to find clothes if you are short.

My thoughts exactly "ravvie"! I'm 5'.05" and average size- and couldn't pull off any of these suits!

Oh my word. PETITE DOES NOT MEANS SKINNY. Every single time I see an article on here for "petite" women, it's usually a very thin Asian woman. Petite means at a height under 5'4", sometimes 5'3", depending on who you speak to. Learn this and act accordingly. GEEZ. I'm 5'2", and it's hard for me to find swimsuits that cover my considerable assets while not making me look like I'm playing dress up in someone else's clothes. Get your stuff together, Fitness mag.
