Slim: Zoe Saldana
Swimsuit Challenge: If you are long and lean like Avatar star Zoe Saldana, the key to looking out of this world at the beach is to find a suit that doesn’t make you look too tall and lanky.
Seek Out: Boy shorts, which create a proportionate figure by cutting the lines of your legs, will look amazing on you. A banded halter bikini—a style that ties around your neck and has a band underneath your bust—is also flattering because it will break up the lines of your body and keep your frame from appearing too lanky.
Avoid: One-pieces probably aren’t ideal for you because they are difficult to fit on a long torso. You’ll also want to stay away from vertical stripes, which can exaggerate the length of your body.
Best Buys: The super-cute monokinis and cut-out designs by Vitamin A are great for long and lean girls.
